Apply for this job

Tigerspike is a digital services company that solves complex problems by creating digital products, providing consultative services and helping businesses to define their digital strategy.

As a 300+ strong global team, we're an AWS Advanced Tier Partner, a Google Certified Developer Agency Partner and one of the most recognised specialist enterprise mobility companies in the world.

Tigerspike London is now looking for a Tech Lead with exceptional engineering skills on either iOS or Android (or both).

Typically you will oversee a project (or two) from an architectural & code quality perspective without necessarily writing any code and at times you will participate in the project as a programmer as well as taking the lead on code direction.

So, if you have a thirst for innovation and want to work with talented and passionate people in an informal and high energy office then read on...

Tell me more!

The clients we partner with range from boutique to multinational, whose users span from employees in your local supermarket to vulnerable young adults. You'll gain experience with industries from NGOs to Travel and have the opportunity to provide a meaningful voice in developing products that improve people's lives.

In recent projects, we created a Smart Cities platform using React and AWS's IoT products for SSE and also launched a pilot project for NIHR, the research arm of the NHS, which required AWS middleware and native Android (Kotlin) and iOS (Swift) apps.

As a Technical Lead, you must demonstrate good leadership and communication skills, be self-motivated, able to problem solve and motivate other team members. You will be able to quickly learn and utilise new technologies and promote relevant emerging technologies to help improve the business.

What's in it for you?

Empowerment - whilst listening to and guiding your self-organising team, you'll be the one steering the ship, with the autonomy to make the final call on important decisions.

Professional Growth - we know you're happiest when you're learning new things, so you'll be given an annual allowance to spend on your professional growth such as attending a conference or taking a course. It's like a makeover for your mind!

Quality - author and critique software designs and architectures and ensure the quality of your teams work through pair programming, code reviews, unit tests and test automation.

Innovation - our monthly 'Transmogrification Day' allows us to take a break from client work to spend time playing with the latest tech and improving our tools and techniques.

Collaboration - you'll work in a multi-disciplinary Agile team, forming a close relationship with clients.

What else?

Tigerspike takes both physical and mental health and wellbeing seriously. Some of the ways we do this include:

  • The chance to work remotely when you need to
  • An annual allowance to spend on your personal growth such as learning French, pottery or even attending a wine tasting course
  • Weekly Bootcamp and Yoga class
  • Spontaneous plank and stretch breaks
  • Free fruit daily

Some of the other benefits we offer include:

  • 25 days' holiday (in addition to all public holidays) + a bonus day for your birthday!
  • £60 monthly mobile phone allowance
  • Free lunch and drinks on a Friday
  • Some pretty awesome social events, from Christmas & Summer parties to impromptu shows at the theatre
  • The opportunity to collaborate with other offices (e.g. Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo, Dubai, Singapore, New York) on other exciting projects
    Who are you?

    You're an ambitious self-starter who shows perseverance because you're hungry for results. You're a great listener, you communicate clearly and your colleagues trust you. You're self-aware, you embrace feedback because you know you can grow from it and you admit your mistakes.

    You should have experience/ skills in the following:

    • Extensive experience designing and implementing software solutions using Swift, Java or Kotlin
    • Ability to leverage development tools and methodologies to help clients build and evolve products that provide real value
    • A product centred approach with experience providing balanced solutions to challenging requirements for key stakeholders
    • Proficiency writing highly maintainable code, leveraging techniques such as Unit Testing, CI/ CD and Code Reviews
    • Skilled in translating business requirements into pragmatic solutions
    • The confidence and passion to work in a client-facing role, offering a consultative approach to development
    • An understanding of best practices in securing data, in transit and at rest
    • Experience advising on architectural choices and mentoring a team to execute those decisions
    • Knowledge of Scrum or Kanban
    • A solid history of constantly improving your own knowledge and skills as well as improving processes for your organisation

    It's a bonus if you also have:

    • Previous leadership experience, managing/mentoring a development team
    • Working knowledge of other languages (such as .Net or React)
    • Consultancy or agency experience
    Who are we?
