  • Permanent position
  • Salary: up to £65k basic + wider benefits package
  • Fully remote interview and onboarding
  • Long term flexible working options (working from home, flexible hours etc.)

What's the role?

It's working as a Lead Software Developer / Engineer for a fast-growing SaaS platform based in the North West. The business provides a range of technologies to large brands at an international level.

Technology stack includes:

  • MongoDB
  • js
  • Express
  • Linux

What's the environment like?
