Lead Developer | £90,000 | Remote Working & Greater London

Jonothan Bosworth Recruitment Specialists are working with an exciting, forward-thinking organisation with a focus on delivering bespoke & unique problem-solving technical solutions to a range of clients and international brands.


You will be given the opportunity to take responsibility for designing applications and delivering software engineering solutions for a range of in-house products and software engineering services to external clients.

If you can encourage a culture of innovation and provide decisive responses to issues as they arise, whilst weighing up data from various sources, you will be sought after. Dealing with complex problems and ensuring that products and services thoroughly consider customer needs is also important.


Lead Developerswho have a solid & long history of working with Java & also have a good formal understanding for Javascript, will be of interest. In addition, if you have ample working knowledge or exposure to: Spring Boot, Data, MVC, Security, MySQL, Docker or Kubernetes our client will give you the platform and the tools to deliver great results.

Demonstrable hands on working knowledge of Cloud (AWS/Azure) will also be a bonus.

If you have any experience with online payments/card payment flow, compliance & PCI DSS that would be a bonus, but not a pre-requisite.


As well as being a strong developer, you will really enjoy this role if you have led a small team of other developers, QAs and/or researchers.  Being the ‘go to’ person, whilst being able to fully immerse yourself and project manage deliverables, will hold you in good stead. Offering technical expertise and being part of the design solution is exactly what we are looking for in a Lead Developer, for this role.


We are looking for an accomplished coder, but you don’t have to be ‘coder of the year’ – we are much more interested in individuals with a solid all round understanding of software technology, with excellent communication and client facing skills. If you have a comprehensive understanding of design patterns and architecture, then this role should be for you.


This role provides the flexibility of working from home, but meeting with the rest of the team to ‘brainstorm’ and share thoughts and ideas collectively, will be an important part of this role too.  You may only be required to go into London Central once per month, however, in the future, if there are customer-facing responsibilities with a particular project or programme of work, then a journey into London – two, or three times a week could be the case also.


This is a great opportunity for a comprehensive coder, with solid leadership & communication skills to join a collaborative team that works within a horizontal structure. You will report to the Director of Development and your voice on ideas, innovation for product improvements and enhancements will be heard. If you have the skills to review, challenge and adjust performance levels to ensure quality outcomes are delivered on time and clarify strategies and plans; giving a clear sense of direction and purpose, personally and for the wider team you are likely to receive an immediate interview request.

If you can confidently engage with stakeholders and colleagues at all levels, whilst actively coaching and supporting colleagues to take responsibility for their own development, this should be the right job opportunity for you, so if you’d like to work in a cross-functional team – working closely with product and design teams to define feature specifications, coupled with an understanding of workflow requirements; developing new features and solutions please get in touch TODAY.
