I am recruiting for a Lead Software Engineer in the Cheshire area. The position has opened up just in time for the Easter weekend so take 2 minutes to give it a read before the chocolate-themed celebrations commence...

The Client in question is a Global Organisation spanning the Finance, Banking and Insurance verticals and this role is a key strategic hire for them in 2017. The role will involve a mix of line management and hands on programming responsibilities with a focus on providing technical leadership on a range of issues.

You will be working closely with the Product Development Manager to ensure that coding standards and best practice (DRY, SOLID) is adhered too throughout the Software Development Lifecycle. You will also champion core Agile/Scrum processes.

The technical focus is pure product development with a 'full stack' feel, focusing on a range of market leading Enterprise products servicing millions of customers worldwide. There will be a mix of Greenfield development using the Microsoft technologies stack (C#, ASP.NET MVC, WCF, SQL) as well as the ongoing maintenance of some of their legacy Desktop Apps (WinForms, WPF).

In terms of culture, you would struggle to find somewhere better. Their CTO is looking to create a 'Google-feel' with their office space (whatever that means) and it includes a gym, tennis courts, on-site childcare and social areas where you can grab some food and a coffee with your colleagues!

But enough about them... this job ad is all about you and your search... more specifically, what should you be able to demonstrate on your CV?

* Knowledge of the Microsoft .NET framework and ASP.NET MVC
* Excellent C# programming skills and knowledge of Object Oriented principles
* Experience of Application Lifecycle Management tools - e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio Team Suite and Microsoft Team Foundation Server
* Knowledge of WCF and Entity Framework
* Strong database skills with SQL Server and T-SQL
* Web experience (JavaScript, JQuery, HTML)
* Understanding of Agile/Scrum and Waterfall
* Experience working across the full Software Development Lifecycle

So if you tick all of those boxes and are even more interested in this role then give me a shout. You can call me on either 0191 338 7540 or 07943721308. Alternatively, if you are unable to chat then send me an email to .

Anything discussed will be kept completely confidential.
