Salary £55,000 - £65,000

We're looking for a Software Engineer to lead a small team of engineers working on the local desktop, mobile and web applications used by customers. The team of five developers and two embedded testers cover a wide range of areas, from efficient networking and protocol designs to creating an effortless and attractive UX. The team works with a diverse set of platforms, including Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, Android, and HTML5, using platform-native code on top of a common C++ core.

The role is part technical leadership and part project management, with line management responsibility for the developers in the team. The team works in an increasingly agile way, so you'll be working with product management and key stakeholders to schedule and track the team's work, coordinate with the wider product engineering team, and steer the overall technical direction of the team itself when required. As a line manager, you'll mentor and develop the members of your team, while your development experience means you can still pitch in and write code as needed.

As Lead Software Engineer you will have:
* have previous team lead experience within commercial software teams
* come from a software engineering background, ideally with C++ use, OO design skills and multi-platform experience
* ability to estimate, prioritise and track workloads for you and your team
* familiarity with agile methodologies such as Scrum and understand both their strengths and weaknesses
* can juggle the needs of different stakeholders, while keeping them up to date and setting expectations appropriately
* excellent oral and written communication skills
* a good technical degree (or equivalent qualification / experience)

If you have any experience with mobile, web, networking or graphics technologies, that's a great bonus too.

These roles offer a unique opportunity to join a growing company with a recognised global brand and huge potential and vision. If you're successful, you'll be compensated with an attractive package which will be appropriate to your skills and experience. They also offer generous benefits, including a contributory pension, childcare vouchers, and private dental and medical care.

If you are an experienced Lead Software Engineer with programming skills in C++, then get in touch with Simon Allen at IC Resources.
