So, you're an Software Engineering Team Lead and you're absolutely at the top of your game. You pride yourself being a respected, inspirational manager and you know exactly how to get the absolute BEST out of your teams. Although you have moved away from cutting-code you still like to keep close to the tech under your remit and you're passionate about best-practice and delivering top-notch calibre software. Now, your focus is on building, leading and inspiring large, multiple teams of Developers delivering enterprise-scale software within a thriving sector..

Look no further.

This is your superb chance for a Software Engineering Team Lead or Engineering Manager to play a key role in the evolution of a hugely successful, enterprise-scale technology firm delivering an UNRIVALLED online platform.

To put it simply - these guys are mega successful and essentially a clear leader within their industry. The company has over 6,000 employees globally (with c.1,600 in Technology). It's a privately owned organisation with a customer base in excess of 52 million and products supported in 19 languages!

These guys are expanding internationally, so naturally.. so does their volume of real time, transactional data which requires complex reporting and systems development solutions, within a highly compliant framework. You will work closely with the Head of Software Development to improve strategy, process improvement and project delivery across a number of Software Engineering teams.

Although "Team Lead" in name - Your role will be truly Management and leadership focused. Whilst you'll understand the tech under your remit, your role will largely be people management focused where you'll be running a team of circa 10 Developers within a very hands-off role.. (So no-coding!) In addition you'll be prioritising work alongside other Team Leaders so essentially you'll kinda wear a PM hat - understanding and considering how other projects affect yours - how to improve tools, process and tech.

You will indirectly manage teams of Software Developers including middleware and business intelligence professionals. These include some of the very best SQL Server database developers and polygot Engineers (including emerging tech like Golang - as well as largely .NET Development teams and specialist JavaScript teams)

There is HUGE investment in tech here and as your new company enter new markets, your role as Software Engineering Manager will see you delivering business intelligence, authentication and interactive solutions which haven't been developed before at this scale. You'll benefit from a wider leadership group to hone your own management skills. They also have an established structure in place which recognises and rewards performance, and they have a strong staff retention rate too.

A family run firm - the family feel here is evident in the company culture, where people are straight-talking, informal and very non-corporate.

You'll enjoy working within an informal environment where people can't afford to get tied down with bureaucratic processes or meetings about meetings!

Working in a hybrid set-up (With just 2 days in the city centre office in Manchester), your team develop public-facing websites, high transaction systems, complex trading tools, tools for advertising on third party websites, and large-scale internal system rewrites.

I'm recruiting for both back-end as well as front-end teams. So you have the option essentially chose you choice of team - .NET, SQL, or TypeScript within an environment that releases often so quality is paramount.

What do you get in return?

An amazing package.

You'll be rewarded with up to £70,000 plus £5,000 car - but we could go up to £75,000 for somebody spot on.

There's also a lucrative bonus (15% on target when fully meeting expectations of the role, with more being available dependant on an exceptional performance - max bonus award 30, Company Pension (will match contribution to 7.5%), 25 days holiday + bank holidays (with an additional day off on your birthday!)
