This is a great opportunity to join an extremely innovative team of specialists where your knowledge and expertise is valued.

What you will do:

  • Providing leadership and direction to the development team including getting into the technical detail, and hands on with code and platform configuration where required.
  • Ensure the delivery of the product is efficient and of suitable quality by ensuring Keytree's DevOps, Continuous delivery, and automated testing processes are followed.
  • Ensure the product works with other products it needs to - for example designing the integration of digital products into packaged business system software and platforms.
  • Drive continuous improvement in Keytree's digital delivery processes
  • Provide technical leadership within Keytree - Helping set technical standards within the organisation and providing expert technical advice to customers.
  • Help develop and manage Keytree's technical team including mentoring senior developers in architect roles
 The ideal candidate will bring the following: 
  • Experience of working with business customers
  • Development / software engineering experience in an Agile environment using continuous delivery / DevOps techniques.
  • Design and delivery of integrated systems - ideally using REST APIs
  • Experience with delivery of internet delivered applications e.g. eCommerce sites or mobile apps
  • Experience of working with cloud solutions - IaaS, PaaS and SaaS
  • Experience working with at least one of SAP, AWS or Azure cloud products 
Desired skills:
  • Experience with automated testing / Behavior-driven development
  • Experience using the Atlassian tool set – Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and Crucible.
