Would you like to lead the development and architecture of a new green-field system? Do you have experience using multiple public cloud providers? Do you understand the details of SAML and OpenID Connect? Are you comfortable working with stakeholders to help them understand the system as well as getting involved with the coding? Are you a clean code advocate who has embraced TDD? If so you may be just what we need!

We are building a new team to develop a bespoke web portal for one of our clients. This portal will integrate with a number of in-house systems and both AWS and Azure to provide a single view to manage cloud resources. This team will be initially 5 people and we are looking for someone who can shape the technical direction of the system and lead the development. You will be hands-on, working with the rest of the team to deliver the system. This is not a whiteboard based role and you will spend the majority of your time coding but we are looking for someone who is also able to work with senior stakeholders effectively.

Why work for Headforwards?

We are a software development company with just over 100 people from 18 different countries and we like to have fun at work. We are agile with a very laid back feel, a relatively flat structure and small self-organising teams of 2-7 people. There’s no pressure to work extra hours to churn out more and more code. At Headforwards, our culture and environment is dedicated to making people happy at work. We have lots of social activities and monthly learning sessions, talks and cross company communities of practice for various languages, tools and frameworks. This is a place where you can make a difference, work in a small team start-up feel but benefit from the support of a larger community of developers and like-minded people. We work in teams dedicated to various clients and we work on global projects with cutting edge technologies, tools and techniques. Most of us live in beautiful Cornwall and our offices are less than 5 miles from the beach. While we love Cornwall and can’t imagine not living here, we know a lot of people are happy elsewhere. We expect everyone to come to our office occasionally, maybe once or twice a quarter, and there are some client visits necessary but apart from that we are happy for our team to be based anywhere in the UK. If you are lucky enough to be based in Cornwall, our new offices are set-up for you to work here if you would prefer though.
