Client of mine based in Dublin North is looking to add a Senior Java Technical Lead to their team on a 6 month rolling contract for a large project which will run for 24 months.

They are looking for someone who is happy working 60/70% people management side and 30/40% hands on. This role would suit someone who is technically very sufficient leading small teams of about 4-6 members while also working well with different stakeholders, BA’s, PM’s etc.

Key Responsibilities for the role:

  • Mentoring other team members in the implementation of SOA and other development techniques.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking to lead teams of on shore 10 and off shore teams 15.

They are paying very competitive daily rates  and the manager will interview next Monday and Tuesday.

What you need:

  • Previous experience as a technical lead in a large scale software development project (will speak with someone who is looking to move into a lead role also).
  • Java technologies including Spring Framework
