Lead Developer / Technical Consultant required by a forward thinking digital solutions provider to join them in their Soho office.

This will be the first technical hire in the London team which up until now has very much been focused on strategy, new business and account management.

The Role:

Reporting into the Head of Development your main focus will be to offer a technical slant to their client facing work. You will work closely with the new business team to help win new projects; defining solutions from a technical perspective and be able to translate these back to the development team in detail. Essentially, you'll be the bridge between the developers and the customers, which means you'll be comfortable talking to non-technical people about technical problems without coming across as patronising!

The Company:

A full service digital solutions provider who work with an impressive range of clients from world renowned automotive brands, public sector bodies, financial services organisations and telecommunications providers.

Multi-award winning and fiercely proud of the culture they have created in both their corporate HQ and the Soho office, this organisation really understand the importance of keeping employees happy.

They have also just had their most successful year when it comes to revenue, sales and new client wins - which has rubber stamped a stellar year for the entire business.


To be successful in this role, you will have a natural flair for communicating with people from all walks of life; you'll love solving complex digital & technical problems and seeing them through to completion; have genuine interest in emerging technologies, with the ability to share new skills with the wider team and you will love the challenge that comes with working for multiple (very different) customers at any one time.

In an ideal world you will have agency experience as the digital world isn't for everyone, however, anyone who is used to fast paced work with an ever changing technical landscape will most certainly be considered.

From a technical perspective, you will be comfortable with most of the following:

** You will likely come from a Microsoft development background - ASP.NET, MVC, .NET, C#, SQL Server, Strong Object Orientated principles, CMS experience would be a big plus.

** Designing and writing technical specifications / documentation following a client brief or presentation

** You will have developed technical architecture for organisations of varying sizes

** Genuine interest in new technologies, whether that be one of the many new JavaScript libraries, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Chatbots, .NET Core or anything of that ilk

Package & Interview Process:

The package on offer for this role includes: £45-60k salary DOE, flexible working hours, enhanced holidays as standard, free fruit & snacks and contributory pension.

As this role is very much client facing, you will be expected to travel to customer site as and when required by the business.

The interview process will likely consist of a telephone call with the Head of Development to chat tech, followed by a meeting with the Head of Dev and the head of the London office in Soho to chat through the role in more detail.
