Suit not necessary – tech expertise essential
Based in Leeds
You will be pushed to find a better opportunity this year.
This job requires an exceptional, far-sighted technology evangelist, capable of keeping ahead of current thinking while designing and building innovative software solutions. This is one of eight similar roles across the UK, all of which report directly to the CTO while working closely with the local leadership team of this cutting-edge, award-winning consultancy.
We’re looking for a unique mix of technical expertise, sound experience, drive, verve and gravitas; all rolled into a Chief Engineer who understands the big picture and knows how to explain it persuasively to clients. We need someone who not only helps build software and pitch it to clients, but also enjoys immersing themselves in the (Scottish) tech market, attending and speaking at events and bringing new learning to the table.
As Chief Engineer, you’ll have considerable autonomy and will be expected to identify issues and develop initiatives across your territory, rolling up your sleeves to direct wider teams as required and getting things done by providing effective, practical solutions and demonstrating the clear difference a “hack culture” makes to the company and its clients.
Non-delivery work will include overseeing technical solutions for projects, bids and proposals, client support to ensure delivery quality remains at the highest levels, organising interest groups and developing a culture of innovative technical excellence.
You’ll probably come from a software development or architecture background (although neither is essential), but you’ll certainly bring first-class, maybe polyglot, coding skills, coupled with an outgoing, personable approach and the ability to build and develop long-term relationships across the length and breadth of the company and country.
As well as the hefty salary and bonus, this is a chance to work with an award-winning company where the professionalism that permeates every aspect of daily life and work is underpinned by a sense of fun, great colleagues and superb prospects.
