The Job

 Working as a Java technical lead your job will be to lead a team of five Java developer and act as the lead developer to translate Technical Specification into robust, functioning code for a gaming platform that supports over 30 million people per day.

This is a hands-on technical job where you will cut code using Java, NoSQL e.g.  MongoDB and Kubernetes.  You will liaise with technical architects, product owners and the QA team to design, build, test and deploy your solutions.

Working an agile environment, you will have a daily stand up and spend your sprints solving complex projects in a collaborative way. 

As the technical lead you will break down the architecture to your team and get heavily involved in the low-level design and making sure technical output is robust and problem free.   


The tech stack here is  (this is not what you need to have experience, but it is what you will work on)

  • Java 8+
  • Spring
  • NoSQL (E.g. MongoDB)
  • Maven
  • Git
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Working on high volume available websites
  • Linux Command Shell
  • Testing good practices: TDD, unit, integration, function and performance testing

About you

You must be a natural problem solver and be at the right level to be a technical lead.  You must be strong with Java, Kubernetes and MongoDB.  You must be able to demonstrate a DevOps mindset.

Beyond the technical skills, you will be a great communicator and be happy to work in a collaborative team.


About the company

This is a well-known gaming business who build some of the worlds biggest games and a gaming platform that is used to by a large percentage of gaming operators around the world.  It is estimated that at least 30 million people a day are using their platforms. 

Based in central London, they employ around 150 engineers and a brilliant track record of retaining staff for a long time.  

It is a fun place to work and a very diverse workforce, they have over 28 nationalities represented with their employees. The development teams are focused on outputs, rather than inputs and they want you to bring your whole self to work.

Beyond work this a sociable team and friendly team who will make you feel welcome from day one.


Why you would work here.

I have asked lots of developers this question over the years, to my surprise it is not the bonus system (very transparent, goals clearly defined and documented twice a year), nor the salary or the cutting edge technologies.  It is always that they feel that they have a voice, that their opinion matters and they are heard. 


There are a million other reasons why you should join this company, but this is what stands out.


The money

£90K basic salary plus a bonus of 15% (which can expect to get paid, paid in summer and Christmas)



Soho London, once to twice per week,  from home the rest of the time.
