We’re currently seeking a skilled developer with strong leadership skills/potential to lead a small team creating software solutions used by some of the biggest names in the UK financial services industry.
At Defaqto, we build modern, responsive websites using Angular, MVC, web API, web services, C# and SQL – and we aim to use the latest versions of the Microsoft development stack. We also use agile development methodologies and engineering practices such as SCRUM / XP.
As our Software Development Team Leader, you’ll spend around 50% of your time co-ordinating and overseeing the day-to-day development of our applications and managing a team of up to five Software Developers. The other 50% of your time will be spent actively participating in projects as a Software Developer and/or Technical Lead.
To be considered, you must have at least 5 years’ experience of developing modern websites, in an agile environment, with good skills in all the following essential areas:
- C# / ASP.NET / .NET
- T-SQL / SQL Server
- Visual Studio
You’ll also need good problem solving and solution design skills, with the ability to interpret and analyse business requirements to produce simple high level software designs.
You don’t have to have managed a team before, but you do need to have good team and project leadership skills and the ability to co-ordinate the work of others effectively. You'll also have a very good understanding of modern software design patterns and standards as you'll be responsible for mentoring the team and ensuring these are adopted and extended.
The successful candidate will be someone who’s passionate about technology, committed to delivering great software for our customers and keen to drive innovation through sharing ideas and new technologies.
In return, we can offer you training and support to become a highly successful Software Development Team Leader, within a challenging and collaborative environment, surrounded by friendly, talented and hard-working colleagues, and contributing to a successful and growing business.
