Job Details:

At Gearset, we build a cutting-edge DevOps solution for the millions of developers building applications on Salesforce. In only three years Gearset has become the DevOps solution of choice for some of the world’s biggest companies, including IBM, McKesson, and even Salesforce themselves.

As a Development Team Lead at Gearset you’ll join a passionate and experienced cross-functional development team with a laser focus on quality – from infrastructure, to code, to user experience. The features you build will make thousands of businesses around the world more effective.

Who are we?

We’re a team of smart, pragmatic people who enjoy giving our best every day to solve our users’ problems. We recently received three awards from Best Companies in 2021, putting us in the top 10 best mid-sized companies to work for, the top three best technology companies in the UK, and top 5 best companies in the East of England.

We’re proud of what we’ve built and how we’ve built it. We work as a team, where attributes of trust, openness and honesty are key, as they allow us to have a feedback-driven culture that keeps us always improving. To learn more about what “good” looks like to us, read about our engineering values here .

As a Team Lead at Gearset, you will:
Work with the other team leads, product managers, and all the engineers at Gearset to ensure we’re building and delivering the right products in the right way.
Line manage, nurture, and grow your own software team of up to 6 people, working with them to achieve their own development goals
Spend half of your time managing the team, and the other half getting your hands dirty creating great software alongside them
Prevent the build up of silos by ensuring your team is working not only with each other and the rest of engineering, but also marketing, product, sales, customer success, and of course our users
Balance product development vs necessary technical improvements to help ensure we’re improving the product for our users, and making sure it scales into the future
Become familiar with a pragmatically-chosen tech stack, including a mix of technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, React, and C#
Work closely with users, delighting them with support, researching new features and soliciting feedback
Contribute opinions on a range of topics, from development practices to product strategy and roadmap

To help you get up to speed as smoothly as possible, you would join Gearset as a senior developer working in another team for a few months to ease you into things before taking on Team Lead duties.

You’ll be a good fit if you:
Have experience of leading teams and projects, and deeply care about making sure you’re working together to solve the right problems and delivering early
Can lead from experience by having been a first class software engineer yourself
Can step back and reassess the approaches and goals of your and your team’s work to ensure we’re always on the right path
Have a bias towards action and pragmatism
Enjoy mentoring, sharing knowledge, and developing the skills of less experienced developers
Enjoy working with a collaborative team of varied disciplines, including software developers, designers, marketers and salespeople
Have an enthusiasm for working directly with users to build and deliver the right features

Nice to haves:
Familiarity with JavaScript and C#
Experience working on a hosted product
Experience working in an agile development team, following software engineering best practices

A little on our Salary and Benefits:
You’ll work 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday, splitting your time flexibly between home and our Cambridge office (typically 2-3 days per week)
Salary is £65k – 85k, depending on experience
Bupa health care
Life Insurance & Critical Illness cover
Flexible working hours
Free lunch in the office
Discounted gym membership, as well as many other wellness benefits
