Lead Full Stack Engineer, Remote (React/Node.js) – Remote/UK


My client, an award-winning Media Publisher has a new innovation team who are on the look out for an enthusiastic and skilled Lead Full Stack Engineer to build a new engineering team and launch new products.

This role is 100% home based.

Job Introduction

We've launched two brand new social media sites already and now we are looking to recruit a team with the right skills and attitude to make them fly.

As a team, we focus on operating entirely lean, being innovation-driven and rapid innovation.

Key Responsibilities

You will line manage, mentor and help hire a squad of two full-stack software engineers - understanding what they need to do to grow and supporting them through this process.

You will take charge of the engineering effort in the team and make key technical decisions.

We are a small and cohesive team, who will always optimise for the shortest time to market, which often results in tech debt being introduced on purpose, and factored out once a feature has been validated. You have to be comfortable with this style of working.

We deploy multiple times a day to production.

The Ideal Candidate

You need to be fluent in JavaScript, with commercial experience in building applications with React & NodeJS. Having experience with GraphQL would be awesome, but if this is not the case, we’re ready to help you achieve this skill.

An understanding and preference for Functional Programming is highly desirable, however again we are happy to teach you this otherwise.

We use AWS extensively, and we provision our own resources (using Cloudformation), so some knowledge of AWS will help. We expect to mentor you in this aspect though.

Experience in leading a small team during a product's early stage would be awesome, but if your experience lies within a team in another area of business, we are happy to mould you to our way of working.

In applying for this role, Additional Resources will be acting in your best interest and may contact you in relation to the role, either by email, phone or text message.
