Company Details

Start-ups & SME's are the backbone of the majority of markets internationally. In some markets, companies which are in these categories make up 98% of ALL enterprises. Before technical products can be released to customers, much to the frustration of developers at times, a rigorous testing process needs to be followed.

95% of all product launches fail, the data strongly suggests that companies which take a data-driven & interactive approach to innovation are those which are more successful. This scale-up has built a cloud-based product which automates the testing process from defining business questions and outlining value propositions to final verdicts/decisions. As a result, 3 out of 4 customers see new product launches succeed.

Through the companies lifespan, they've completed 4000 tests with 240 million respondents across 130 markets. 86% of customers state their advanced methods offer clear insights with 90% of customers agreeing they adopt a simple yet effective process.

The Role

As a result of the continuous increase in demand seen for the product. They're hiring a Lead Engineer to be the central foundation for a large team to be built around in the future. A core responsibility will be to provide technical oversight on the system architecture. Despite working in a Fullstack role, the chosen candidate will take ownership for the Frontend built with TypeScript & React. You'll become the go-to for any architecture issues in addition to coordinating project development across the tech stack & data science services.

The product is deployed on a serverless AWS system which the chosen candidate will have a technical, hands on role in managing. For these reasons, it's essential that you bring strong AWS & project management experience as you will work cross-functionally with Product Owners + Managers and Architects. You'll be expected to 'see the bigger picture', identify issues at the cause and use technical insight to prevent issues before they come up.

What they're looking for?

* Seasoned software developer with at least 5+ years working Fullstack with Python (FastAPI) & JavaScript (TypeScript, React).
* AWS experience working in product companies with scalable, cloud-based products. Strong experience with a host of services including CDK & RDS Lambda.
* Project Management experience, ideally coming from a position of technical oversight in the past, managing & moving forwards a cloud-native infrastructure/product.

Beneficial if you have:

* Ambitious with the ability to 'hit the ground running' and become highly accustomed to the product environment in a short period.
* Holistic thinker - able to understand the 'bigger picture' from an architecture perspective.

Next steps?

If you're a seasoned software developer with past experience in technical, project management roles within cloud-native environments, this could be the next step in your progression to becoming a technical leader.

The client can offer a highly competitive total compensation package including stock options. Furthermore, you'll get to work in a unique & rare position where the product development is built around you. Allowing your team to be an extension of yourself and your approach to development.
