Lead Java Developer - Edinburgh Hybrid - 80-120K plus 30% Bonus

Lorien's client, a great firm succeeding in one of the world's largest markets, is looking to bring on board a Lead Java Developer to continue building up their new central Edinburgh office (hybrid working, model below), work closely with a cross-functional dev team across Scotland, London and overseas, and put their skills to good use as they create products and tooling for a growing, global customer base.

In this instance, they're looking for Java Developers (Lead level and maybe Seniors looking for a step up, too) from either Back End/Full Stack backgrounds to take the reins across the development of core business software as part of their wider global trading platform, and engineer a variety of technical solutions including core trading and order management services, cloud-based microservices, big data solutions and more.

What you'll enjoy in return for your efforts:

  • Strong remuneration packages of around 80-120K depending on your level and relevant skills, plus bonuses up to 30% which could even increase depending on the market fit, popularity and impact of your creations
  • Hybrid working (2 days in office, 3 days WFH per week) in a new central Edinburgh office, very commutable by public transport and close to the main train stations
  • Chance to work on tooling and products used across the globe in an impactful market
  • Opportunities to progress both professionally (you can pave your own career pathway) and technically, with chances to upskill and learn as you go

Some of the duties involved:

  • Designing, developing and improving key software and APIs
  • Helping to lead in a hands-on capacity; improving both the team and products simultaneously and representing less senior members at stand ups
  • Liaising with a multidisciplinary team of Front End, Product Management, QA and UX/UI specialists
  • Contributing to flagship system/tooling-related and high-level architectural decisions
  • Leading and mentoring other Developers as the team grows
  • Writing clean code and instilling best practices wherever possible

Knowledge and Experience:

  • Strong Java development skills - either in a Back End or Full Stack capacity (there are openings for both)
  • Strong grasp of data structures, algorithms, Hash Maps / Hash Tables and related concepts
  • Some record of team leadership ideally with line management skills

If this sounds like a good match for your skills, and you like the idea of joining an already successful team operating in a promising market, working on solutions and seeing the fruits of your labour through exciting products, amazing bonuses and more, apply now with your latest CV and let's have a chat!
