The Role

Within the role of Technical Lead, you'll be responsible for the full software development lifecycle, from requirements capture, analysis, design, and delivery. The successful candidate will have a development background, have managed teams, be able to take responsibility for a solution, and drive the technical outcomes to meet the customer's mission needs.

  • Strong C++ and Java
  • Experience of modern libraries including STL, Apache libraries (NiFi etc)
  • Linux and Windows development experience

In addition, knowledge in scripting languages e.g. Ruby, Python, Bash and good grasp of networking fundamentals would be beneficial.

Please note that due to security nature of this role, candidate must be UK national with live SC security clearance.

This is an exciting opportunity to work for a global business that has developed a strategy of working closely with its contingent workforce. Within the role, you can expect to:

  • Achieve a work/life balance
  • Increase earning potential
  • Develop your skills
  • Be appreciated and valued

If this sounds like the role for you, we'd love to hear from you!
