Are you a solution orientated, commercially aware and versatile polyglot with experience in the design and delivery of complex systems?

The Role

Scott Logic is a thriving UK-based software consultancy where we design and build software that transforms the performance of some of the world’s biggest and most demanding organisations. From capital markets and commodities to complex public services, our consultants combine innovation, experience and pragmatism to deliver measurable results with every project.

We are seeking an experienced technologist to occupy a senior position within our growing Bristol office. Located in the heart of the city, you’ll join a team of passionate, smart and like-minded individuals. You’ll work with a diverse range of platforms including the latest front-end and back-end technologies and modern architectures (microservices, cloud, streaming, big data, serverless).

You confidently lead development teams building applications, managing all aspects of the delivery including technical quality and client satisfaction. You are commercially aware, and actively pursue future opportunities within the client. You are capable of delivering development strategy and advisory consultancy to clients across a broad range of requirements. You engage with and influence key stakeholders at the highest levels while shaping engagements even in challenging circumstances.

Within the company your value is in your breadth and versatility. You’ll be a member of the senior leadership team within our Bristol office, helping shape its overall direction, growing both the office and the people within it.

While this is a Bristol-based role, we are looking for an individual who enjoys ‘face time’ with the client, and is happy to hop on the train, or a plane, to visit our clients across the UK and beyond.

You’ll spend your time:

  • Leveraging your software design and technology skills, to create effective architectures and communicating them to the client.
  • Evolving and developing software architectures while balancing budget and business goals.
  • Carefully managing the choice and delivery of technology recognising the human impact of change.
  • Fostering a quality culture both within your client projects and across the Bristol office.
  • Helping other engineers reach their highest potential through mentoring and coaching.
  • Helping grow the Bristol office, the people within the office, and the capabilities and services we offer to clients.
  • Working with a diverse range of platforms including the latest front-end and back-end technologies and modern architectures (microservices, cloud, streaming, big data, serverless).

You should apply if:

  • You have a proven track record in leading complex software projects.
  • You have a breadth of knowledge in technology, and a passion for delivering successful outcomes.
  • You enjoy working with, and influencing, project stakeholders.
  • You can talk professionally with senior non-technical decision makers, understanding and navigating the competing and complex commercial concerns.
  • Enjoy leading teams, and helping them to be the best they can be.
  • Rise to the challenge, are a fault finder, and a fixer.

Scott Logic is a founder-owned, successful and growing, private company located in the UK. Our 300+ employees enjoy working in tight-knit teams where they work, grow and succeed together. We hire people who align with our core values of Passion, Excellence, Collaboration, Respect and Professionalism.

Scott Logic is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. We are mindful of the imbalances in our sector and particularly encourage applications from different underrepresented demographics.
