Keystream Healthcare is currently seeking a Back End Development Lead on behalf of our client in Central London.


This is an interesting role in a leading provider of pathology and diagnostic services in both the public and private sector. You’ll enjoy being near good transportation hubs and 8th floor views along with an impressive new office in Central London.


The Development Lead role is responsible for guidance, planning, scoping, and estimation for the development team as a whole. The Lead often also takes responsibility for implementing core application features and may make architectural and systems-level decisions in the absence of a dedicated architect. Other high-level responsibilities of this Lead role will include establishment of DevOps pipelines, performing code reviews, and encouraging professional growth amongst development staff.


Due to the critical level of responsibility and specialized skills involved, we are looking for a candidate with a minimum of 8-10 years’ software engineering experience on medium to large projects, including at least 2 years’ experience managing a mid-sized team. Because the Development Lead role is a technical management role, the candidate should have solid communications, planning, mentoring, and diplomacy skills to fulfill the social requirements of the role. In addition to soft skills, the candidate should be very familiar with agile methodologies, general software architecture, and test-driven development practices, and should be willing to promote their use to the team at large.
