Lead Server Engineer and Architect (25794)

Cambridge, initially remote
to £80k DoE + excellent package

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

A new challenge and a great package working with Linux, Node and .NET Core

This is a server-side role with the responsibilities of a team lead, architect and senior developer. The company is evolving their server architecture towards distributed micro-services on a healthy mix of Node and .NET Core, both on Linux.

You'll be making sure the overall system design fits together well. Specific responsibilities include acting as the bridge between your team, devops, client-side development and product management; designing mutually beneficial APIs; and paying close attention to performance, security and ensuring a holistic approach to testing.

Your CV will show your significant software development capability across these areas, with a view to such commercial work.

Your skills will certainly encompass RESTful HTTP web service development, designing micro-service architecture for the cloud (AWS / Azure) and on-prem, as well as modern JavaScript and interaction with databases. You'll be used to weighing security, performance and taste in architecture and code. You'll understand SOLID and how to sensibly apply it.

It is beneficial if you also have experience in .NET Core / .NET 5 (especially ASP.NET Core), and related technologies including remoting (WCF, gRPC etc.), LINQ, dev ops, relevant unit testing frameworks, CI, Git and Gerrit.

This is a great role for the right person, with a secure and profitable US and UK software and hardware company. Work will initially be remote, then in their office on the south side of Cambridge as soon as the UK situation permits. New hardware is available to you, even if home working, so you shouldn't need to "bring your own". Their benefits package is excellent, and salaries more than competitive.
