Lead Software Developer - Leeds - Work with the Cloud
Lead Developer required for one of the most innovative companies in Leeds. They are based just outside the city centre, easily commutable from the surrounding area with free parking. They are currently looking for a Senior/Lead developer to help develop, organise and run their new development projects, which will involve enhancing two brand new platforms they have developed to add to their existing product suite.
They are currently developing several greenfield projects and migrating existing software to the Cloud, hosting it all on Azure.
Once in the role, you'll be running their projects making sure they are following an agile/scrum method by planning stand-ups and retrospective meetings as well as setting project goals. You would be helping with the support and maintenance of the product and as an escalation point for developers.
As a team lead you would also be a key person in the team when it comes to mentoring, team leading and generally setting standards across the development process.
Any potential candidates should have around 5 years' experience working with the full Microsoft stack and have knowledge of most of the following:
** C# / ASP.NET
** HTML / CSS / jQuery
** Microsoft Azure / AWS / Google Cloud
** Knowledge of highly customised APIs
** SQL Server / Relational Databases
** Agile / Scrum / Kanban
Ideally alongside this you should be an advocate of Agile and have experience being a mentor due to the demands of a lead role.
Any interest in DevOps would be beneficial as they are keen to modernise the entire development approach, however, this isn't essential as long as you have an open mind.
Based on the outside of Leeds, this is an opportunity to lead what is a completely new team on several new projects. The company are market leaders and have their product used around the world.
The overall package to you comes with a competitive salary, flexible hours and healthcare scheme to name a few of their benefits. If you are interested, please apply and call Matt Gray on .
