  • Fully remote working, office if you'd like, coding and leading.

A very well-established digital product business in Bristol is looking for a Lead Developer to join their talented team. Fully remote working is absolutely fine, with an office space in Bristol if you’d prefer to be in too. Plenty of time to still be hands-on with code, but also mentoring, leading and nurturing others. If these are the kind of responsibilities you’re looking for, then this could work really well for you!

What experience you’ll need

  • Writing unit tests and using unit test frameworks
  • Experience working with agile/scrum
  • A good working knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • JavaScript, AJAX, JSON or JavaScript frameworks

Taking the technical lead on projects including requirements gathering, design specification, development, deployment, testing and client support. Assisting and mentoring other members of the development team. Liaising with your team and producers on projects and regularly updating them on progress. Bringing new ideas and process improvements to the team. Actively participate with the team in agile planning, reviews and retrospectives. Use appropriate agile practices and tools to efficiently develop new software, and change existing code. E.g. pair-programming, test-driven development, user stories, code reviews etc. Ensure that knowledge is shared across the team.

What you’ll get in return for your talents

They’re a self-confessed ‘geeky bunch’ who all get along incredibly well, so the cultural fit is as important as technical ability. Salary up to £65K DOE (closer to the top end of you already have leadership experience). Discretionary annual bonus, inclusion in the company pension scheme, 22 days holiday plus another two weeks extra over Christmas. An annual company trip with flights and accommodation paid by the company (previous locations have included Rome, Paris, Amsterdam and Prague), monthly socials on the company, training budget for courses and conferences of your choosing, remote working, flexi-time and when in the office you can expect free soft drinks, beers, breakfast etc. If you have a real passion for Web Development, C# .Net, leading others and want to work in a fun, relaxed but professional environment, then this is the role for you.
