Harvey Nash's client, one of the world's foremost financial software providers, is expanding its operation in Scotland and are looking for a technical leader who can provide oversight and inspiration to their small team of architects, whilst also remaining hands on. You'll really get the chance to influence the technological direction from senior level, whilst remaining physically engaged and will have the chance to be promoted with their huge investment in training and progression. Upskilling is a major aspect of their ethos, recently investing a seven figure sum solely in training their staff as they continue to reap the rewards of a happy and astute workforce who are setting the Fintech scene alight. This company is rapidly growing, with Harvey Nash assisting them with growth levels of over 100% since 2014. They offer truly flexible working hours, a bespoke office with various perks including chill out areas and a roof terrace. This is not simply a case of all style and no substance however. This is a high performing team with a global reach due to the size of their product's user base and the engaging and enjoyable projects they boast. You will define the architecture and design of JEE with AngularJS and Oracle database applications for performance and scalability, whilst also creating the best practices for the implementation and monitoring of high-performance web and mobile apps. This role is ideal for a technologist with aspirations to pursue a CTO level challenge in the near future. Whilst providing architectural oversight, you will enjoy remaining hands on and influencing the introduction of future technologies. Should the above resonate with you, get in touch with for a confidential discussion around the scope of projects, roadmap for progression and also what's in it for you.
