Technical Lead / Java / £57,000 - £65,000

I'm looking for a Technical Lead for a long-standing client based in Manchester city centre. The role is split 70/30 split between Programming & Leadership

The company are reshaping their engineering team and the purpose of this position is to help improve their engineering practices but ultimately be a technical focal point for the engineers. The role is not just day-to-day leading of Software Engineers but also helping to shape engineering best practice, recruiting new team members and ultimately improving the cadence & quality of releases.

The stack is largely Java-based, with stuff like Kotlin and React used for Mobile and Front End work respectively. Across the entire business the architecture is transitioning towards a Cloud-based, Microservices model.

There will be challenges; there is legacy technology which will need to be maintained and ultimately replaced. Transformation is never plain-sailing.

Ultimately though, there is an opportunity to really make a difference and apply your influencing skills. This position should be the launchpad to a more senior & strategic position in the future.


You love Software Engineering and love scalable, maintainable and regularly released code. You love inspiring others into following that vision and you love to see an organisation reap the benefits. You know how to build and lead high performing teams and you like to be their focal point. You can influence technical people into changing their ways, you can show them how and you can get them to buy into a bigger picture

*COVID -19* - This interview process will be carried out remotely and the role will be 100% remote until 2021 at the very earliest.

If you would like to be considered for the role click APPLY NOW and I will be in touch.
