As a Lead, a lot of your value and skill can be accredited to advocating for, championing, and following good practice.
So, what separates a Lead Dev from a Senior?
Their relentless observation of good Agile practices, unwavering following of SOLID principles, continuous thirst for wanting to adopt newer technologies, dedication to Testing (TDD, Unit Testing etc), and selflessness in mentoring those under, so that they progress!
The reason you’re in a Lead position or would consider taking the next step, is that you’re confident in your ability to raise the overall skill competency of a team through coaching and mentoring, whilst seeing and delivering on projects from requirements gathering, through to deployment and maintenance, all in a timely manner.
You know where to be, how to get there and how to help others get there!
Now, is driving change your motivation?
If so, let’s see if this role could be your next success story.
When a business sees a lot of success, it tends to scale with its customers. This is the story here with this trusted (by world leading companies!) and consultative SaaS provider.
Due to significant growth in the UK, this supplier of SaaS solutions is going global, with offices already set up in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, and Holland. Being the leading supplier, we have been tasked in ramping up their Engineering Department by 150+ people and it goes without saying that they’re going to need some exceptional Lead Devs to support this growth, both through internal promotions and external talent (you!).
Expect your time and responsibility to be split 50/50 between hands-on coding and code reviews/mentoring your squad(s). Your direct report will be an Engineering Manager (a natural progression option for you too) who will always be at your disposal.
Your SCRUM team will consist of more impassioned Devs, Testers, PO’s and Agile Delivery Consultants; all working on either a particular product offering or working to service and support a plethora of integral customers.
Being a technology-driven SaaS business means yours and your teams work will be hosted in AWS; with the current tech stack including .Net Core, C#, AWS, Typescript, Microservices and WebAPIs.
So, what’s the catch?
Domain knowledge. It will take some time to get to grips with but, if you’re someone who truly rises to a challenge, it will be well worth it. Especially as you start to embed yourself within the lovely teams.
