Software Architect

Full Time Colchester Essex IT Job Pro UK

Lead Developer

Software Architect

Development Manager


You wear many hats

You can code

You can design

You can strategise

You have a commercial eye and are a somewhat frustrated entrepreneur with great ideas

You can see the bigger picture, understand what is viable and make suggestions

All this whilst guiding the team, mentoring, making improvements and getting stuck in to help out.

Is this you? If so, I have a rare and interesting new role designed for you.

We are looking for a Lead Developer and Architect to round out and lead a small team of two. The organization is multi-faceted with a variety of internal systems from an intricate finance decisioning engine to EPOS, booking systems, RFID and more.

You’ll wear all of the hats above; one day strategising with the board, the next assigning tasks, the next designing solutions and getting stuck into the code. A full-on all-round role.

There is legacy, greenfield and everything in between

The tech stack is Microsoft – C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, JavaScript and more

Salary around £70k – £90k (we’re really open depending on skills and experience)

Location: West Bergholt, Colchester. There is flexibility but this will be an office based role (hybrid possible)

You will get to work with inspirational people, entrepreneurial but considered, driven and with serious pedigree.

You will be challenged and stretched. There are a lot of systems that need updating, revamping and better functionality. There are greenfield projects and there is legacy that needs looking after.

Both current developers need support and mentorship but not hand-holding, they are great at what they do. They enjoy autonomy and are true analyst programmers who can think of their toes.

If you are a hands-on leader with a commercial mind who can code, design and troubleshoot then please apply now or contact Simon at Ithika Recruitment for more information and a confidential chat.
