About this job
Lead Developer
Newcastle/Extensive Remote
Great Benefits

Bright Purple are working closely with Newcastle's fastest-growing technology company, who specialise in delivering cutting edge software using Java + .NET based Microservices to big name clients across the public and private sector.

In this role you'd be leading their most important projects in a hands-on capacity, and what we really want is:

*someone with an agile mindset to be an advocate and practitioner of XP practices;
*be able to convincingly sell the benefits associated with these to both clients and their teams
*happy to learn new technologies and promote best practice always.

All their project work is greenfield, and they use cutting edge technologies and approaches to deliver world-class software.

A good example of a "headline project" would be the key Government programme "Eat Out to Help Out" during last year's struggles against the economic impact of Covid. They have delivered many key projects to major household names over recent years, and 2021 is set to be their most exciting year yet.

Key Experience/Requirements include:

*Experience leading projects or teams in an Agile environment
*Still hands on (.NET, Java, or Scala)
*Experience designing software architectures
*Strong client-facing skills
*Hands-on experience in TDD and Paired Programming

They are offering a lot of remote work, and a great package that includes Apple hardware (and discounts!), a discretionary bonus, a big focus on training + development, corporate healthcare, and a lot of family-oriented benefits.

Bright Purple Resourcing is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
