Head of Engineering

Permanent  |  £140000 - £160000 per annum  |  Greater London  |  London

You love people.

Nothing excites you more than spotting that one thing in a person others may have missed, that one spark or twinkle that peaks your interest during an interview.

Then watching that same person progress up the career ladder you implemented, using the techniques you taught them, and the resources you hounded the business for. Hiring, retaining, developing and setting free is what you love doing.

You were a Software Engineer in a previous life, and secretly you still tell people at BBQ's that's what you do. You could still dust you keyboard off and hold your own if required, and that's why your team respect you.

Now however, you live your Software Engineering life through the finger tips of your team. Hiring great Engineers, inspiring them with a vision, then sitting back and watching them do great things, implementing your ideas.

You've already built your team, implemented your processes, and achieved your visions. Your current team will be fine, they're great, but here is an opportunity to move away from the BAU and back to the exciting part. The beginning, and a blank canvas to get the team from 15 to 50. 

What's in it for you? 

The opportunity to scale an expertly talented team of Engineers, covering both Front and Back End Development, Full Stack and DevOps. You'll have managed teams of 40+ Engineers previously, and will be focussed on hiring, training and retaining top level talent.

You'll have the opportunity to shape a company, in a highly ethical industry, genuinely changing the internet for the better. There is no better feeling than using your ability to do something good for the planet.

You'll work for a highly funded ($20mil) company, very well established with an impressive array of clients (their service is mainly focussed on B2B). You'll have true ownership and accountability of the team and the opportunity to get that excitment back. 

Some of the technology you'll get to work with Node, Angular, Redis, Kafka, Java, Docker, Cassandra, Python, PostgresSQL, Kubernetes, Mongo and much more.

If you're intrigued and would like to hear more, please get in touch with me for a confidential conversation on or 0203 714 3961
