Do you want to help scientists ?

We’re building an intelligent system that links scientists to grants quickly to help them spend more time in research, and less in administration -  and need more help. If you’re a passionate, focused and driven development manager who has a bias for action, isn’t afraid of putting your teams first, makes good decisions quickly, likes building things you’ve not built before, untangling legacy code issues and ensuring your sprint commitments are met, we want to hear from you. In return we offer the opportunity to lead teams working on a suite of products built using  a range of technologies - Java/Scala AWS microservice architecture environment and modern Node.js based Javascript, as well as the .Net family of technologies.

The role may work also with 3rd party software delivery suppliers to deliver discrete product pieces if required.
If you join us in this role you will be working on a high-profile and business critical project which, for the right candidate, will offer an opportunity for career progression and may involve some international travel.
The Engineering Manager will be working to build an environment focused on encouraging creativity and collaboration.
