Principal Software Engineer | Disruptive New Product | Technical Leadership Across 7 Squads

Principal Software Engineer | .Net Core, Go, Python, Microservices, AWS, Kafka, Docker, Agile, TDD | New Platform Build for one of the UK's Top Visited Websites

Location: Central London

Salary: Up to £125,000 plus bonus plus incentive plan

Are you a highly skilled Principal Software Engineer with a passion for driving software engineering excellence across multiple squads?

Do you thrive in a collaborative environment, teaching and learning from those around you?

Do you enjoy building products that are used by millions of people and having an input into what is made?

Principal Software Engineer: We're working with one of the UK's most visited websites to grow their engineering function as they continue to build pioneering, disruptive products. You will be tasked with working across the organisation using your capability, influence and gravitas to build common consensus around a single vision and forging multiple stakeholders and teams into a mutually supportive cohesive group. This role is about making an IMPACT and adding VALUE across the business and the 7 current squads within this wider team.

  • As a Principal Software Engineer you will have in-depth knowledge on a variety of languages and their ecosystems as they use Golang, .Net Core, Python, Javascript/Node and are open to using whatever the right tool for the job might be.
  • It would be great to have extensive knowledge of AWS although other Cloud knowledge would be valued too.
  • You will have driven company-wide CI and Automation initiatives, championing the quality and deployment benefits of both.
  • Best practice will be second nature to you and you will have demonstrable examples of how you've implemented this in previous companies - Test first mentality, refactoring, clean code and pair programming.
  • You will have played key roles in designing and implementing new architectures and technical strategies, while also looking after existing technology real estate.

The teams are comprised of exceptionally talented engineers and are growing! There are 7 squads in the wider engineering team - You will be leading these engineers, striving to set the standard and raising the bar by teaching them from your experience.

The environment:

  • .Net Core, Golang, Python
  • AWS (most of the services)
  • JavaScript/React
  • Node
  • Kafka
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • GitLab
  • Agile (Scrum), TDD

With a clearly defined career framework that prevents politics getting in the way of your progression, and a chance to be a part of something that hasn't been built before in this industry, this really could be a career-defining role for the right person.
