Job Description

Senior Software Engineer | JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Node| AWS Azure GCP | Manchester Or London office| Remote/flexible working |International Consultancy | £60,000 - £80,000 dependent on experience

The Client:

Manhattan Partners have partnered with one of the most exciting and distinguished international consultancy with offices across Manchester, London and Barcelona.

What an incredible time for them at the moment! They are a fast-growing company and are currently expanding their Manchester office! They care deeply about doing things the right way and are looking for a forward-thinking Principal Software Engineer who wants to utilize their varied skills across different stacks and cloud technologies to join the fantastic team.

Your aspirations are nurtured here. You may aspire to become an effective advisor, an inspirational mentor, a skilled coder, an exceptional architect, a renowned technologist, a cloud solutions expert, an emphatic facilitator, or a visionary leader - you will be provided with the help, training, and support to take leaps in your professional journey.

The company was founded in 2013, but originally began as an idea born in 2010 - a very strong community of programmers with a passion for well-crafted software and XP practices and values. The community spirit and culture carries on, and is at the core of the company. You can see this with frequent internal sessions run by members of the team, where they learn from and share knowledge with each other.

The Team:

The London team is headed up by the Regional Director (South, UK). As a Principal Engineer you will be working very closely alongside the Regional Director, helping to drive innovation through a holistic strategy involving technology, systems & best practices.

The team supports their client base in many ways and you will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of different internal and client projects. Perhaps you’ll work on a client project from the Manchester office with a delivery approach. This may be a greenfield project for a startup, or helping to build a mission-critical system for a large enterprise client.

The clients they help vary from eCommerce, Healthcare to FinTech. Projects vary also, for example complex refactoring or massive scaling and transformation projects.

Wary of consultancies because of the bad rep on excessive travel? The team is working remotely currently due to Covid-19. As things start to return to normal, any travel would be restricted to the main office branch based in Manchester or London. This company is not your typical consultancy and won’t be asking you to travel all over the place! Any client work that is outside of Manchester/London would be undertaken remotely.

Key Requirements:

* Solid commercial experience with JavaScript and TypeScript

* Full Stack experience with React and Node

* Familiarity with a cloud solution (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform)

* An appreciation for good development practices (Test-driven development, pair programming, continuous integration/deployment)

* A passion for continuous learning and sharing knowledge with others

* If you're someone who is at a high mid-level but not quite a senior, we'd still love to hear from you.

Why You Should Apply:


Transparency - salary bandings and company finances are available to everyone from day one.


Autonomy - got an idea? Form an Initiative Circle, take ownership, run with it, and see it through to delivery.


Personal Learning Budget - Access to Learnerbly, an online learning & development tool, to support your personal development and career progression.


Training - No fixed training budget. So long as the course is relevant to the company and you'll do a lightning talk on the subject, they’re happy to pay for it.


Books - Found something interesting to read that doesn’t already live in their digital library? They’ll cover book expenses - and ask to read it after you as well!


Life cover and private medical - A ‘Lump Sum’ payment for life cover. Private medical cover including dental
