We are looking for someone to be the owner of technology decisions in the development team ensuring that the engineering and solutions architecture is sufficiently engineered for the initiative, and that future options are not being restricted by current choices.
We want a strategic leader across technology, who inspires and motivates the team by leading from the front. Assure the solution will deliver the functional and non-functional characteristics required.

We have a great product team here at BrightHR that believes in user-centered design, iterative development and validated learning. We work in an agile and collaborate way in cross-functional teams focusing on delivering value not just to a UK audience but to international clients across 4 platforms.

What are looking for?

* Able to communicate a complicated problem succinctly accurately and coherently to a team with different skill sets.
* Able to negotiate and compromise solutions and find the balance between best practice, expediency and longer term maintenance costs
* Ensure that the initiative has a coherent Definition of Done and that your features are met
* Propose new technology, process or tooling to improve efficiency being aware of the future maintenance costs and consistency across other product teams
* Inspire enthusiasm for technology from your colleagues
* Demonstrate, discuss and permeate current good practice in the skills specific to your professional family across other members of your professional family
* You are able to strongly influence quality in your product team and across the department.
* You are able to communicate at various levels in the business, describing complex situations in a way that can be understood by non-technology stakeholders
* You are able to develop colleagues by collaborating and supporting rather than executing on their behalf
* Experience of refactoring in extremely complex software systems where much of the code is legacy
* Ability to deal with very high levels of uncertainty either in the technology or business domain
* Ability to incrementally define and build a solution in a way that doesn’t restrict future choices
* Maintain and improve engineering practice
* Maintain and improve software quality for features built (TDD, Pairing, Peer Review, Static Analysis)
* Support the QA in identifying describing and resolving defects
* Support the BA in the elaboration of requirements

What’s in it for you?
