Job description

Engineering Manager // Principle Developer

Engineering Manager// Principle Developer 

Remote // £70k - £80k 

I have the pleasure of representing a truly fantastic role. 
One of the most exciting I've seen for a while!

I am in need of a Principle level Java developer to move into management. Or indeed someone who is already used to managing teams of 5-10 people. You will still be expected to be hands-on in your development for maybe 25-50% of the team, leading from the front. However, as the team, you build organically grows you will see this shift into a more hands-off role. 

The opportunity arises as one of the UK's biggest Pharmaceutical businesses is looking to energise and modernise their tech offering to their customers. Bridging the gap between pharmacist and customer through technology. 

You will be working with state of the art technology, and an ultra-modern tech stack, with the ability to influence this too. 

The role can be based wherever you like in the UK, however you may be required to travel to Manchester every now and again 

Your technical background should look something like this: 

Java8                   Microservices development 
Docker                Application packaging and runtime for Java/Linux applications
AWS                    Our chose cloud provider      
BitBucket            Source control
Grafana               Event monitoring, alerting, dashboards
Jenkins                For managing continuous integration builds and delivery pipelines
ELK stack            Application log storage/analysis, Monitoring, Dashboards
Packer                 Used to build server images (AMIs) for EC2 instances
Puppet                For configuration of management & build server
Terraform           To manage and define infrastructure as code
