Working with the wider team you'll be responsible for the rebirth / build of a range of websites from architecture to delivery. You'll dismantle the legacy and rebuild in modern technologies - think native, microservices, React, Redux, Mongo, Node etc. You'll also be an effective leader - you'll know how to get the most of teams of engineers and drive quality.

What you'll be doing:

Growing and managing a team of talented Software Engineers fostering a culture of excellence
Acting as a hands on lead, mucking in and writing code when it's necessary
Establishing ways of sharing code across multiple applications and platforms
Encouraging TDD
Optimising systems and applications to reduce costs of infrastructure
Ensuring your team is writing clean, well-documented, future proof code
Fixing issues with performanceAnd probably a load of other stuff which you'd expect from an Engineering Lead role!

You'll come with:

Experience in leading a team of engineers, and getting the best out of them whilst keeping them happy
The ability to solve problems and think on your feet
A passion for building amazing products that are used by the masses
Experience maintaining high traffic websites
Microservices experience
AWS and associated services Lambda, EC2 etc
Experience in Continuous integration / deployment

This role will require occasional travel down to their UK office which is down the M5 just past Exeter. This will be sporadic, you'll largely work remotely.
