Employment: Permanent

Job description

True flexible home working – Diverse employer – Flexible working times - Excellent benefits - Relocating welcome (UK)

IntaPeople are currently supporting a well-established client in Cardiff who require a number of experienced software engineering leads to join and lead one of their many cross functional agile teams. These are important leadership positions within the development team, and you’ll be responsible for the team’s delivery against specific products whilst being directly responsible for a team of roughly 4-8 members (including developers/software testers and product managers).

There are two opportunities available which are slightly different but predominantly leadership focussed positions with opportunity to step in and get hands on when required to provide good technical direction and mentorship. Working closely with the Director of Engineering and another team leads/managers you’ll promote a strong collaboration between teams, sharing best practice and helping clear potential blockers as you see them.

Ideally, we’re looking for; (but not all so please apply if you feel your experience is relatable)

*Proven software development leadership/management experience (min teams 3-5)

*Extensive development experience in one/all of the following languages PHP, Java, C++ or Ruby.

*Linux working environments

*Strong knowledge and experience within an Agile environment

*Excellent communication skills

*An interest in modern software development & transformation projects

The individual will support the development of each of their team members across a cross function team to ensure that the team is able to deliver efficiently and effectively, using good agile practices, alongside working closely with the team’s Product Managers who are also based in Cardiff office.

Alongside the above you’ll always have a delivery focused mind and ensure new features are implemented across the entire technology stack (including front/backend). As we are looking for two software engineering leads there is opportunity to be more hands on and vice versa (hands off). You describe the roles as being 60%-70% leadership/management and 30%-40% technical/hands on, but this can fluctuate depending on the team’s project pipeline.

The company offer a flexible working policy and no two weeks are the same. The options for home working are flexible and you have to decision on this. Typically, teams work from home between 3-4days per week but if you’d rather be office based this is also available. If you are based further afield or find working from home more productive you can travel into the office just once per week for sprint planning / meetings.
