    Lead Java Developer, JVM,SPRING, AWS, AZURE, Development Lead (43434321)

    Location: Taunton, England  |  Contract Type: Permanent  |   |  Salary: £40,000 - £55,000

    Job description

    As a Lead, you'll provide technical leadership for a small delivery team of developers, creating cloud-based software. You'll be hands-on coding yourself as well as making sure that the whole team creates great quality software. Most importantly, you'll ensure everyone is able to contribute their best ideas and that the team is smart about how it does its work.


    You'll be joining a software development practice of 40 developers. We're proud that we've created this group by recruiting junior people who share a commitment to professional development and watched them grow with us. Right now, we have people pursuing certification in Azure, AWS, Kubernetes and Security; we have others on management training courses; we even have people on Masters Degree programmes.

    Within this practice, the community of Lead Developers provides technical leadership for the department, recommending tools, technologies and techniques for adoption. This group contains people with various specialisms and levels of experience who all support each other in their roles, exploring what it means to be a Lead.

    Everything we do is team based. We take Agile seriously; your delivery team will be small but will have the people it needs to get things done - developers, testers, product owner and a delivery manager - as well as access to infrastructure specialists, UX experts and analysts.

    Quality is paramount. You and your team will be supported to do good work. Most code is done in pairs or larger groups to ensure quality and spread knowledge. Everyone reviews code and everyone welcomes feedback.
    We strive to automate as much as possible; testing, builds, deployments use the latest tools available.

    We offer a great work / life balance. Peoples' start and end times are built around their own preferences and around a 10am - 2pm team time, where the team is focussed on building things (no meetings!). We're all set up for working from home and encourage people to make use of this if they prefer. We are committed to providing part time options and reasonable accommodations and will work with you to meet your needs.
