    This is great if you want to play a high influence hand on something new.

    Client are building a new product with multiple moving parts & are heavily funded by one of the Banks. The Head of Dev has come on board to scale the MVP & he needs a right hand man.

     Why look at this:

    • The rates are good
    • The head of dev is one of the best techies in the SAFA market & more so, he’s the kinda guy that prefers delivery over clock watching
    • The tech is bleeding edge
    • Your role will be to support the HOD in architecture, design & code. You will feature as an influencer not only over the solution itself but over the dev’s around you.

    Our HOD is an incredibly strong backend specialist; to hit the sort of rates he’s prepared to pay, he’s going to ask you to play the UI hand

     The sorts of skills that are going to make him want to buy you a beer are:

    • You didn’t start coding yesterday. Yes you’re talented but you’ve eaten elephants before & know what to watch for
    • You’re curious – we’ve got a blank slate for you; at these rates you’ll be expected to back the HOD up when conceptualising, tech decision making & in the actual code itself
    • C# is your playground
    • You’ve played the UI hand before – they’d prefer strong Angular skills but strong UI with a little Angular will work as well. JavaScript / Typescript / React

    That’s the core ask. Full Stack skills would help. If you know any of the following, it will add fat to your offer:

    • Web API / Restful services
    • Azure with CosmoDB
    • Taken an MVP to market before
    • Financial Services or Fintech experience
    • B2C product experience
