Backend Software Development - Team Lead (26850)

Remote or Cambridge based
circa £70,000 DoE + benefits

Building new cloud-native applications to allow complex collaborations

This is an opportunity for a skilled software developer to take the lead of a highly skilled backend team, building a state-of-the-art cloud platform allowing collaboration on complex technical designs.

The challenge includes building new cloud native applications and scalable infrastructure that will allow for rapid growth in the userbase and significant increases in system efficiency. This could include working on 3D visualization, intent-based API design, AI and ML powered search capabilities, stateful and stateless servers, as well as Git-style design version storage.

The type of person who will excel in this leadership position will be a proactive life-long learner, with an eye for the big picture. Their career is likely to be backed by a good technical degree, such as Computer Science or Physics and they will be comfortable working to the highest professional standards. They will enjoy taking on technical challenges and empowering their team to come up with their own innovative solutions. They will have the determination, flexibility and resilience to overcome challenges and see a task through to a successful conclusion. And they will have excellent skills in communication and leadership, as may be proven by past success in a commercial setting.

The tech stack includes:

  • C#, .NET Framework and .NET Core
  • multi-tenant architecture, scalable infrastructure and cloud microservices
  • AWS, (e.g. EC2, ECS, RDS) and containers via Docker and Kubernetes
  • CI / CD and Jenkins

Full right to work in the UK without time limit or sponsorship will also be required.

Our client offers highly competitive salaries and a good benefits package. Employees can also choose to either work completely remotely or opt for a more traditional working style, attending the Cambridge office 5 days a week, with flexible start and finish times.
