Lead Developer - Remote + Liverpool / London - Up to £75,000 + Equity - Education
Having already begun shifting the way students and young people across the UK take control of their career options, the business is determined to improve the options young people have at their disposal – guiding them towards a path which not only excites them but encourages them to thrive. With an extensive client portfolio spanning hundreds of educational institutions and UK leaders, such as Vodafone, AstraZeneca, Siemens, NHS, BT & more, the business has developed and hosted a modern platform which has ambitious goals to expand internationally and change the face of education.
As a major milestone towards their journey, our client is looking to recruit a Lead Developer to join their team and act as the technical champion across their product roadmap. Remaining entirely hands-on (this role will be hands on focused with additional leadership responsibilities rather than a bias towards hands-off) across greenfield development of new features & functionality, whilst reporting on technical growth and acting in a leadership across the business, the Lead Developer will be responsible for building a team ready to challenge the norms in EdTech. The successful candidate will be immediately offered the opportunity to build their internal team alongside delivering technical solutions to the most complex issues in the platform. Alongside building your team, the successful candidate will take technical ownership of delivering the technical roadmap whilst making plans to address long term projects including the creation of automation strategies & CI/CD pipelines. Using one of the UK’s largest educational databases, the Lead Developer will support the CTO in bespoke database development and integrations which will genuinely change the lives and future of their users.
In terms of working arrangements, the team is built on flexibility and can make the role work around your needs. The ideal situation is to work under a hybrid model of remote & office work – exactly how many days this looks like on either side depends on your personal circumstances. If you wanted to work fully remote, that’s fine – if you wanted to be based out of their Liverpool or London office once a week, that’s also fine!
