Posted +1 month ago


Unique opportunity for a Tech Lead to join Manchester’s next big ecommerce scale-up!

The business was recently acquired by a Silicon Valley giant, which means they’re able to offer all the freedom to innovate that you only really get at a start-up, plus all the support and benefits of a major corporate.

They’ve already hired some of Manchester’s best and brightest from the big-name start-ups and scale-ups of the last few years and their product engineering team has been ringfenced to operate as an R&D division responsible for building almost exclusively greenfield software for the next two years.

The existing group are very open minded, they work as multidisciplinary product engineering squads (Dev, Product, UX) who value diversity and teamwork over individual heroics, so you’d be working alongside people that are passionate about using practices like TDD and Pair Programming in an autonomous DevOps environment.

As a Tech Lead, you’d be hands-on in leading a squad of Software Engineers and would become part of the founding leadership team, responsible for playing a key role in shaping their culture and product engineering capabilities as they scale from 3 squads to 6 and beyond.


  • TypeScript (Node, React, Vue)
  • GraphQL
  • TDD

The money is good too – up to £85k plus benefits including stocks, annual bonus, pension, private medical/dental plus plenty more including regular flexible/remote working.
