If you’re looking for the next step in your Software Development career, consider joining our team at EDF.

We’re a multi-disciplined team with generalists and specialists; be it front-end, back-end, full stack developer or DevOps. We offer opportunities for engineers who want to help shape, develop and grow our software engineering practice, whilst developing their own skills, knowledge and career.

We’re one of the big suppliers, we’re agile and move quickly when it comes to tech. We’re evolving our IT landscape from traditional on-premise monoliths, to a collection of scalable, independent micro services, which enable us to react to the fast paced nature of the energy industry and uncertainty.

Our Software Engineering practice is at the heart of this transformation and we encourage our engineering community to really understand our challenges, what our customers need from us, and to create practical applications that solve business needs.

The opportunity…

As Lead Engineer, you’ll be working across multiple small teams (3-5) within a domain (tribe), to galvanise and lead that domains (tribe) engineering teams in terms of purpose, quality, direction and culture. 

The role is a senior leader and influencer who will focus as much time on the technical direction or the teams, as on the strategic elements – working with product owners/managers, other engineering managers, Principal Software Engineer and other senior state holders to understand and drive that domain forward in terms growth, technology, skills and capabilities.

You’ll be comfortable writing code and keeping hands on as much as providing thought and direction leadership to product managers, defining and shaping the teams structure, skills and recruitment.

This is a key role in leading, shaping and driving forward our software engineering practise.

We work almost exclusively within the native cloud space, leveraging the AWS platform and an ecosystem of external SaaS components. Architecturally we strive to be “serverless first”, where practical, and recognise and use containerization where necessary.

Our core working methods are based around modern DevOps process; shift-left, test automation, SRE, CICD, and “everything as code” mindset.

•    AWS tools and resources inc; CodeBuild/CodePipeline, IAM, Lambda, S3, SNS, SQS, EventBridge, CloudWatch, Cloudformation, Step Functions, DDB, Cognito, API Gateway, S3+Cloudfront hosting
•    CI/CD  with Github/CodeBuild/CodePipeline
•    Front-end; ReactJS with styled components / StoryBook
•    ReactNative for web and mobile
•    Languages; right tool for the job!, but typically JS/TS, and Python. 
•    IaC; Terraform, Serverless Framework and SAM
•    Ops; CloudWatch, NewRelic
•    Test; Jest, Cypress, Cucumber.

What we’re looking for…

•    Experience of leading multiple small to medium sized teams in a fast-paced agile environment
•    Proactive and able to demonstrate strong ownership
•    Ability to translate complex engineering concepts to non-technical team members and broader stakeholders
•    Cloud architectures, particularly AWS – with relevant accreditations 
•    Expertise in at least one server-side language (ideally, Python, Java/Kotlin, NodeJS)
•    Serverless architectures
•    Commercial experience with React and/or React Native UI framework
•    Commercial experience with one or more popular app state management libraries
•    Experienced in source control and CI / CD tooling technologies (e.g., Jenkins, GitHub, Terraform)
•    Automated testing knowledge and experience (e.g. Selenium / Cypress / detox)
•    CSS3/ HTML5 /Typescript

You thrive in an evolving environment where you get the opportunity to contribute to diverse projects and innovate new solutions to business challenges. At EDF, you can experience different teams and feel like you’re in a new job, without changing companies.
