Role Overview
The successful Ruby Lead will have a balance of roughly 70/30 in terms of hands on coding/team management. There are currently four junior/mid-level back-end developers who will benefit from your technical knowledge and guidance, as you have the opportunity to influence all areas of the technical estate. The focus of this role will be back-end programming; however, an appreciation of front-end development will be a great benefit.

This is a realistic and sensible business, if you're a talented developer but you don't have a wealth of Ruby experience, we still want to hear from you - as long as you're confident that you can get to grips with 10 years of Ruby in the code base!

This role may suit an individual with software development experience who has possibly held the following roles: Ruby Developer, Senior Ruby Developer, Software Developer, Senior Software Developer, Full Stack Developer
