When you look at companies to work for what is the most important thing to you? It’s making a difference to their customers, right? Having a direct impact! None of that back office or internal rubbish!

You also think to yourself does that company make a difference in general? Well yes it does, in-fact they are disruptor in the way Uber, AirBnB & Moonpig are. Completely changing the customer experience in this market.

You also want somewhere that has software engineering is at the heart of what they do, yep you guessed it again, that is the case here! The quality, scalability and maintainability of their software matters a lot to them so they want engineers equally passionate. They follow best practices within an Agile environment including pairing, CI/CD, TDD and code reviews

So what will you actually be doing?

  • Being hands-on at least 50% of your time and work alongside the engineers
  • Line managing three or four software engineers in one team, including hiring, performance management
  • Pragmatic understanding and decision making to achieve company targets – you can translate the impact of decisions to the team.

About you….

  • Python is your main software engineering language. You have also worked with JavaScript (preferably React but Angular/Vue is also ok)
  • You are a fan of Agile practices and keen to line manage a small team
  • A good mentor/coach for more junior engineers, you enjoy the people side of the role equally as much as coding.

So do you want to lead a team to create awesome software to give your customers an amazing experience?
