Technical Lead

Manchester City Centre

Up To £60,000

The Headlines:

Joining a rather large IT team in a great location in the centre of Manchester, we’re looking for a Technical Lead who can both manage and develop a team of developers, act as Scrum Master and plan and estimate all projects. Ideally you’ll be from a coding background and have moved to a more hands-off role where you still look over code every now and then and have a passion for all things Agile!

The Role:

  • Estimate and schedule development work
  • Manage each project and all deliverables alongside the PMO team
  • Allocate work in line with your teams’ abilities
  • Scrum Master – Sprint planning, chairing and hosting stand ups
  • Line management and development of a team of 4/5 developers
  • Management of project teams – developers, testers, architects
  • Implementing and encouraging best practice
  • Working closely with internal stakeholders and business teams
  • Code reviews and mentoring


  • Moving the company’s main website in house and taking control of it moving forward
  • Improve the ‘application process’ section of their website
  • 3rd party software and infrastructure integrations
  • Continuous integration
  • BAU changes

Technical Skills Required:

  • Coding skills – all languages considered
  • Agile - Scrum or Kanban (Scrum Master experience desired)
  • Cloud – AWS or Azure
  • Full SDLC experience – including architecture, SOA, micro-services etc.
  • Passion for Best Practice

The Benefits:

  • Work from home – 2+ days per week
  • Flexible hours – core hours are 10am – 4pm
  • 25 days’ holiday – option to buy up to 10 more
  • Season ticket loan for public transport
  • Private healthcare and a health cash plan
  • Plus childcare vouchers, cycle to work and many more

This is a brand new role which is absolutely key for the business and their next steps. Bringing the website and application site in house has been on the cards for a while and this is now a chance to take ownership over that project. Joining three other Technical Leads, you’ll be driving the business forward, improving processes and working to develop a number of fantastic applications.

Work/life balance is highly encouraged by this business and it’s a great environment to work in – if you want to be part of it, please send across your CV straight away to apply for this role.
