Moving house is stressful. 

Don’t take our word for it. Google “life’s most stressful events”, and you’ll see moving is on nearly every list. 

But moving into your new home should be exciting. 

Curating Pinterest boards, buying house plants, picking out furniture. Finding your favourite soft furnishings, hanging up artwork and the smell of fresh paint on your walls. Butterflies as you walk through your front door for the first time. That’s what moving should be about.

That’s why we’ve made it our mission to transform the Property Industry. People moving home regularly cite a lack of transparency and a painfully slow process, and that’s often due to the technology in Estate Agent’s hands. 

For the past five years, we’ve been working hard to change that.  

Behind the very best SaaS companies are teams of talented, highly driven people, and that’s exactly the kind of team you can expect to join at Street Group. If you love autonomy, are naturally curious, and want to have a genuine impact within a growing company, we think you’d fit right in.

We’re now looking for a Tech Lead to join our growing Street development team. Leading a small cross-functional team, you’ll shape and build a brand new area of our existing software. This is an amazing opportunity to improve the way people move in the UK, leave a lasting impact on Street, and take the next step in your career. 

Here’s what you can expect to be working on as a Tech Lead at Street Group:

  • Supporting, leading and coaching a small but highly talented cross-functional team 
  • Remaining hands-on with building a best in class piece of software 
  • Being a driving force behind best programming practices and taking your team on that journey with you 
  • Collaborating with other Street development teams, customers, and commercial counterparts in the business to build the best product we can 

What you bring to the table: 

  • You have strong expertise in PHP plus one or more of the following: Laravel, Vue, or AWS
  • You’re a passionate advocate for best practices including Agile, TDD and BDD 
  • You have experience bringing people on a journey to build things better 
  • You have previously mentored, coached or led other developers
  • You have strong empathy, communication and collaboration skills 
  • You care about empowering your team and working together to find the best solutions

Research has shown that women tend to rule themselves out of applying for jobs unless they meet 100% of the requirements. If you fall into that category and were about to rule yourself out based on the above criteria; please consider applying anyway. We'd love to see your application!
