Job Description

TECH LEAD (PATH TO CTO) - Greenfield Work - Exciting FinTech - Salary Up to 110k + Bonus and Benefits

The company I am working with is an exciting FinTech that was started by an ex-MD of a large bank and is changing the way that people look at investing. They develop algorithms for investing in listed securities. Leveraging on their team's diverse background and expertise, they designed a system that provides an edge by successfully combining deep understanding of the fund-raising market and the power of big-data analytics. Their algorithms analyse large amounts of data from multiple sources, and aim to identify and predict potential patterns in investors' decisions.

After meeting with them personally, they have told me that for a person to be successful with them, they must be a tech-focused individual who is happy to use new technologies and react to change quickly. The new Lead must be proficient in cloud technologies as this position will have a strong focus on this area. You will be responsible for leading a team of intelligent and talented developers, from junior level up to senior, and must be able to lead them in a way that manages to get the best out of them. During this role, you will be working closely with the COO who will nurture you into becoming the next CTO of the company. It is worth noting that this is a hands on role, you will be required to remain roughly 75% hands on for this position.

After visiting the companies offices personally, I can vouch that they offer an incredibly welcoming environment. With weekly Salisbury deliveries to cater to the teams needs, accompanies by weekly pizza nights, their team feel is something that is hard to come by in this industry.

You will be required to…
- Lead a team of talented developers
- Work on greenfield projects

Experience required…
- Strong Java Experience
- AWS OR GCP Cloud experience
- Spring
