  • Permanent

Head of Engineering / Engineering Manager ---Hiring during COVID 19---

80-110k - Central London

I am currently hiring for a leading retail finance business that have developed a product that has proven to be extremely resilient during what is proving to be a tough time for so many. Due to business growth, they are now looking for a Head of Engineering to work on an exciting consumer product in an extremely forward-thinking, and rewarding environment.

This role will suit someone who is a self-starter and entrepreneurial in nature. This position has been created due to the team reaching a point where an established head with a track record of leadership in similar environments is required. The makeup of your responsibilities is below:

  • Managerial activities - 50%
  • Contributing to code (Java Spring-boot) 20-30%
  • DevOps 20-30%

If you have worked in a finance startup before and wish to do so again, this would definitely suit. If however you have worked for a larger challenger bank or similar larger company previously and wish to work in a business that would give you the chance to have more say and control, please still apply so we can discuss how this could equally suit!


  • Strong knowledge of Java, Spring-boot
  • Solid knowledge of DevOps (CI/CD, etc)
  • Experience of managing MULTIPLE teams concurrently (You will initially be managing 8 technical staff internally and 5 currently offshore)

Nice to haves (Not essentials):

  • Experience of working in start-ups/SMEs/Fintech
  • Experience of large scale databases

This role would perfectly suit someone who is ambitious and wants to really have an input in an environment where their voice will be heard. The company currently stands at around 25 heads though that is growing and is very sociable with a large focus on team interaction.

If this sounds like a role you would be keen on, please do get in touch!
