We’re looking for a lead engineer to bring their technical aptitude and engineering experience to bear on complex customer-facing problems, solving them alongside a team of talented colleagues to rapidly deliver the right solution. 

Job Description

Come join us

As lead engineer, you’ll be working closely with Product and Engineering managers to understand large and complex pieces of work, and to plan ways for the team to deliver them. We’d want you to act as a coach and mentor to junior members of the team and ensure everyone is heard and feels included.

You could choose to follow a path to deepening your knowledge as a real specialist in your field, broadening your knowledge to learn other specialisms, or you could go down the managerial route. The choice is yours.

What we're offering you 

  • Remote - based anywhere in the UK (2 days per month in the office)
  • Flexible working hours
  • £1000 per year to spend on professional development
  • Life Insurance to protect your loved ones
  • Pension and salary sacrifice scheme
  • Be Well: A programme to support the wellbeing of all MVFers and their families
  • Free breakfast when in the office
  • Company off-sites and holiday incentives (Ibiza is our usual choice of destination!)
  • A plethora of free health & wellbeing clubs that include yoga, pilates football, ultimate frisbee, book club, boxing, personal training, spinning, dine & draw - we have been running these remotely so you can still get involved!

What you’ll be doing

  • Working with the engineering team to discuss, design and build software
  • Leading architecture and complex solution design sessions
  • Balancing technical debt and innovation
  • Deliver tested, working software in line with product requirements - solving the “hard problems”
  • Working with business teams to identify & solve issues with existing software
  • Deploying new versions of platforms into pre-live and/or live environments
  • Engaging with the wider engineering and technical team to make MVF a better place to work

About you/Requirements for the role

  • Strong technical skills, ideally Full Stack, but with a focus on Backend
  • This role will largely entail working with PHP, but we’re also open to other specialisms (I.e. Node.js)
  • Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks (e.g. React, Vue)
  • Experience of solution architecture and AWS-based development
  • Lean/Agile environment exposure with continual improvement focus
  • Demonstrable experience of TDD/BDD - and the benefits (or otherwise!)
  • Commercial awareness of business impact alongside engineering excellence
