John Beesley



Head of Software / Epsom, Surrey / up to £100,000 + equity

Seeking a new leadership challenge within an ambitious business? Passionate about tech for good? Keep reading!

This is an opportunity to join a business at a challenging, yet eminently exciting period in its growth. Their software is actively making a difference to the lives of thousands of people working within the NHS, education and local government. The problem is that their legacy platform is ill-equipped to scale in line with growing demand for the product. This is where you come in.

As Head of Software, you will oversee the migration of the core platform into a modern, Azure hosted architecture. Naturally, the right person for this role will be someone who has been there and done it with cloud technologies. It doesn't necessarily need to be like for like if you come from more of an AWS/GCP background. The engineering team also has a near shore resource based overseas, so ideally you'll have experience of that, too.

Tech stack: Azure, .NET/.NET Core, SQL, CosmoDB, React.

The role would suit a technologist who enjoys leadership and defining a roadmap, yet retains enough hands on experience so as not to get lost in code. We are looking for an interim candidate in the short term, but a permanent vacancy is also on the table should that be of interest down the line.

Burns Sheehan Ltd will consider applications based only on skills and ability and will not discriminate on any grounds.
