Role of Lead Back End Developer
The Lead Developer is the driving force behind the application architecture and will have a strong focus on code quality and guiding the team members in adopting and adhering to standards and best practices. It is not a management role, but the emphasis is on taking the lead and showing the right example, guiding others and confront when deviating from the standards.
An important aspect is to build more application knowledge and to keep the application architecture manageable. Besides that the Lead Developer should be able to bring together front end and back end developers where there is currently too much division.
General software design skills are more important than knowledge of any specific framework or tooling. We are looking for an experienced developer (Java back end) with a proven track record of designing applications, not the ‘look and feel’ but from a technical perspective. We are not looking for an Architect, but a Developer with experience in building application design.
