  • Experience in an Engineering lead/Engineering Head/CTO role in organisations/start ups
  • Experience working with HTML/ CSS and a modern frontend JavaScript framework, such as ReactJS, AngularJS, EmberJS or Vue.js
  • Experience with cloud providers (e.g. AWS, Azure, GCP), containerisation (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes) and modern architecture patterns (e.g. microservices, reactive architectures, event-driven architectures)
  • Experience with relational and non-relational data stores (e.g., MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra)
  • First-hand experience with Agile development methodologies
  • Ability to interact with people at all levels in an organisation
  • Willing to travel up 50-75% of the time across to clients' sites 
  • Skills to communicate complex ideas effectively
