Recommend Recruitment

A Java Development Manager is required to scratch-build a Java Developer team of 15-20 for a Global Fintech, to replace their outsourced core product development with an in-house team. You’ll be very close to the code – ideally 70% management, 30% technical hands-on, ultimately with a clear and acute passion for tech with the gravitas to technically compliment Tech lead and Senior Java Developers. You’ll be building a team from scratch, 15-20 developers in total, working with the VP & CTO to build the core product internally.

Location: London, City

Salary: £80k – £100k + bonus + bens

The Java Development Manager role is not the traditional Java Development Manager role, in so far as you will need to be closer to the code than the role traditionally would expect. This is due to the gravitas required around code reviews and quality; they are bringing in a product for which there is no current in-house knowledge for. As such, you will be seeding the knowledge of that product within the team, and need expert knowledge of cutting-edge Java code to be able to galvanise the team you’re in.

The Java Development Manager will be the cultural driver, and help give ownership to the right people within their team. You’ll have the technical knowledge of high-transaction, high-availability tech that accommodates transaction in the £X00ms.
