Technical Lead – Southampton / Remote – Up to £65,000 + Great Benefits
A vibrant healthcare business with an exciting web and mobile app are on the lookout for a driven and enthusiastic Technical Lead to join them and take the lead on the technology side of the business, whilst building a high-class team around them.
This is a great opportunity to work in a vibrant start-up culture on a high-tech product that has a genuine and long-lasting impact with its customers. The business has a huge growth mindset, so this is the chance for someone who is constantly looking to develop themselves and try new challenges.
The head office is based near Southampton but this will primarily be a remote role where you'll be expected to be in the office once or twice every few weeks.
As the Technical Lead, you will work close to the Management team to define the product roadmap, tech stack, architecture and scalability, and then build, maintain and monitor them with your team.
You'll have to be autonomous in managing projects from beginning to end, taking care of both front end and back end activities. You will be managing an outsourced tech team and will take over the project once the beta version is ready.
Within the time, as the Technical Lead you will have to hire your own developers to join the team and be able to manage them, maintaining a good discipline of coding and best practices. You'll have to work hands-on, mastering the architecture, understanding how it works at each level. You will be working with local and remote developers so time management and understanding different cultures is key to your success.
The ideal candidate will have excellent technical and communicational skills, with the ability to show leadership, autonomy and dedication to getting things done. You will need to be passionate and thoughtful and enjoy working in a collaborative environment, balancing business needs and technical debt.
From a technical perspective, knowledge of native mobile application development (iOS and Android) is essential. The business used a broad tech stack, so the more experience you have with the below the better!
MongoDB, Apache, MySQL
Grunt, Gulp, RESTful API
In addition to a competitive salary of up to £65,000, the Technical Lead will receive a number of great benefits including a vibrant, modern office, relaxed working environment, pensions and healthcare to name but a few!
