Tech Lead

£45,000 – £60,000 pa plus benefits

If you are an ambitious, commercially-minded developer who is ready for the next step in their career, we’d love for you to apply to join our team based in our stunning new open-plan offices in Queen Square, Bath.

You will have a minimum of five years full stack software development experience and be ready to lead – and grow – an existing team of four developers. We have ambitious plans for how we want the ‘Doodle’ platform to develop over the next 3-5 years – our technology is already hugely popular and well used; part of your remit will be to ensure it remains robust and scalable as we continue to grow by 10% monthly in the UK whilst expanding to overseas territories and other subjects. You’ll also manage the in-house transfer of the last remaining parts of our tech operation that we outsource.

A proven track record in maintaining a clean, consistent code base is essential. Management skills are important, but you’ll still be keen to get your hands dirty too; hierarchy is minimal in our company and leaders lead by example: you’ll be a great coder. Having a keen interest in education is vital – if you want to lead the continuing development of a product that has a hugely positive impact on children’s confidence and ability in maths then this is for you. You will report directly to the founders to ensure their vision becomes a reality.

We’d want you to be pretty accomplished with MySQL and have flexible coding skills. You will be prepared to learn new things, be well-abreast of current changes and trends in technology, and be prepared to contribute significantly to the design of the product and the way it is architected.

Get in touch by submitting you CV and covering letter to and following up with a phone call.
