Are you fluent in proposing modern software engineering solutions? Do you want the opportunity to work in an entrepreneurial environment where bureaucracy and red tape do not exist, where you can drive the direction of a company without being micro-managed?

Client

Our client provides modern software engineering to many of Europe’s leading high-street retailers helping them boost their customer experience. They are now looking to expand on their retail portfolio by introducing both finance & telecoms sectors. The business offer consulting, development and advisory services to help clients define their strategy, solution architecture and deliver outcomes that provide tangible business benefits.

Role

This position will focus on current, up to date software engineering utilising an Agile methodology, such as Cloud Native Applications, API’s and Microservices. The role will focus on working with two types of client:

* Companies that have been born in the age of cloud and web-scale applications such as ASOS, Netflix and Expedia to name a few.

* Traditional organisations who are looking to breakdown their legacy systems into microservices with some of the largest retailers and financial institutions in the UK.

This position is split between working with a number of existing key clients, as well as working closely with the Business Development Director and Sales Director to help bring on new clients and win new business. The successful candidate will be required to leverage the existing relationships with some of their largest enterprise clients to introduce modern software engineering techniques to manage digital transformations and business applications.

Most of the thinking and drawing conclusions in each project is done when preparing the proposal, discussing hypotheses and client needs finding the data for the hypotheses and verifying this. You will handle client relationships during projects, visiting and supporting the client to realise the delivery of the project sold.

This role requires a consultant at the forefront of working with digital transformations and complex business applications to provide solutions to legacy systems and infrastructure. This individual will interact with Technical Directors, CTO’s and IT Directors accountable for the delivery of each project.

Responsibilities:

* Responsible for new solution development and improvement of existing solutions.

* Composing commercial proposals

* Developing the business proposition (increasing market awareness of the company, creating positive image, participating in conferences, publications etc.).

* Responsible for development and enhancement of methodology.

* Recognising and understanding of client's (project) objectives and targets, formalising them and reconciling the definitions with the client, directing project team effort to achieving project targets.

* Responsible for development and maintenance of relationships with several clients on top-management level.

* Monitoring activities of competitors and establishing connections/contacts.

The ideal candidate will be:

* An extraordinary communicator, who can influence at board level, while being flexible and adaptable enough to collaborate with internal teams on complex delivery solutions and IT services.

* You manifest a track record of fostering growth and the experience of handling high net worth IT projects.

* You should be technically astute in the latest technology trends and practices including Microservices, Cloud Native Applications, Open Source Data Analytics tools, Infrastructure and Continuous Deployment.

* You are well versed in agile and lean practices and programs and should be able to demonstrate functional understanding of how these projects are executed.
