  • Work with Engineering teams to up-skill their capabilities in their relevant area
  • Take ownership and lead teams to deliver customer outcomes
  • Be an ambassador for the continuous improvement of the systems and technologies in the team
  • Promote collaboration and strategic conversations with Engineering Leads across Group Transformation


What we're looking for

As a Lead Software Engineer, you'll have a broad technical appreciation combined with a strong delivery approach.

  • Good understanding of the latest software development practice, with experience in defining and implementing technical strategies and roadmaps
  • Skilled in the leadership and delivery of technical change using Agile methodologies
  • Experienced in technical architecture, infrastructure, and hardware and able to lead teams, set direction and solve problems when delivering change in these areas
  • Being an experience advocate of both Cloud Technology and DevOps to help shape the technology transformation plan
  • You'll be a keen and comfortable communicator who is happy working with a wide range of technical and non-technical staff

We would also welcome someone with experience in leading the relationship with 3rd party technology suppliers, taking ownership of associated contract and governance activities.; a people leader with experience running Engineering Guilds and the line management of Software Engineers to support their learning and development; and help to define and deliver the Labs strategy, vision and purpose with the broader leadership community.

We'll provide you with a diverse, energising, and informal environment that focuses on equal opportunity and supports career progression. We'll take your personal and professional development very seriously and enable you to make a positive difference to the overall teams' mission.

If you're passionate about engineering and want to join a team working to transform the landscape and are willing to develop yourself then it would be great to hear from you!
