Job Description

Here's proof that you're not earning what you're worth.

Ask yourself this…

Are you ready to earn what you're really worth? Including a higher basic salary and enhanced benefits package that reflects your value to the business? Are you currently carrying out team lead responsibilities but not recognised for the extra work?

Then we might have the right opportunity for you.

About us

There are many companies out there that work in some shape or form within the defence industry but very few that are integrated partners for every arm of the UK's military. You would be joining at a time where they are investing heavily into scaling the software development capability of some of the UK's most classified and high-profile military and civil engineering capability.

The job

This is a Technical Lead opportunity with responsibility for two Java Developers and headcount for a further four Developers in the next 6-12 months. You'll get the opportunity to help transition projects towards a containerised microservice architecture using APIs and more Agile way of working. You'll also receive the support and training to help shape and grow your team to reach these goals.


Along with a strong track record of working as a Java Developer, you'll have some experience of leading other Developers. You'll have been involved in peer reviews, mentoring and coaching more junior members of the team and be aware of what best practice looks like when it comes to developing modern Java web applications.

Your technical experience will include Java, J2EE and web-based technologies such as JavaScript. Any additional experience on modern JavaScript frameworks like Angular would be desirable but not essential.

In return

You'll receive a competitive market salary, benefits package and the training and support needed to hit your 12-24-month goals and progress. People who have been in similar positions have quickly progressed to management and architecture roles within the company in a short space of time.

To apply

If you're interested in finding out more, apply with an updated CV and we'll be in touch to discuss it further with you.
