Lead Java Developer

Posted 1 February by Nigel Frank International Easy Apply Ended

I have partnered up with an award-winning Software House and Consultancy who are keen to recruit experienced Java Developers due to an increasingly packed project pipeline.

They are based in Newcastle and the roles will be primarily office-based, offering you the chance to work with a talented team of Developers, Testers and Architects to design and develop a number of high-end solutions.

First and foremost, the positionsare highly technical and will involve you working with a range of technologies including Java, J2EE, Spring, Hibernate, ReactJS, NodeJS, AWS and C++. You will be working on the development of bespoke applications, enterprise in scale with complex architectural design underpinning them.

You will be tasked with working across the entire lifecycle, getting involved in everything from initial R&D, software design, hands on programming, testing and delivery. Moreover, your role will involve acting as a technical escalation point, assisting the team and the end customer with any queries pertaining to the project as well as providing excellent technical leadership at all times.

As a Lead Developer, you will be expected to drive the use of engineering standards and coding best practice at all times, ensuring that only software of the highest quality is delivered. You will also work with a range of modern software development principles and methodologies including Agile, Scrum, TDD, BDD, DevOps and Continuous Integration and will be encouraged to contribute ideas and alternative ways of working. Agile delivery is specifically important so any previous experience leading Agile projects or acting as a Scrum Master would be a huge asset.

You will essentially be a hybrid Developer/Consultant and this brings with it a range of unique opportunities to progress into either Architecture, Client Services or Team Management with each and every avenue being available. With that in mind, they are looking for applicants who are genuinely passionate about coding, candidates who see technology as more than an occupation and candidates who want to continuously improve.

In return, they are offering a competitive base salary between £55,000-£65,000 alongside a varied benefits package (10% pension, 25 days holiday, Bupa healthcare) and the opportunituy to genuinely progress within the organisation (note that I realise every advert says that, so take my word for it on this one).

So if you've gotten to this point in the advert and have managed to avoid all of the mines (hypothetical of course) then I would be happy to have a chat if you want to follow this up.

I can be contacted by calling either or . Alternatively, you can send me an email to or search for 'Liam Haghighat' on LinkedIn (I am pretty easy to find!).

Anything discussed will remain completely confidential.
