What does serverless mean to me and how could I restructure my application to benefit?

How can we automate our key business decisions and supplement the expertise of our existing workforce?

How do you effectively share technology, methodology and tooling advances to encourage reuse and shared advancement?

These are the types of questions that you'll be asked by our clients, your colleagues and yourself at BJSS. As our business continues to grow, this brings exciting opportunities. We are therefore looking to appoint a Chief Engineer to join our Bristol team. This is a great opportunity to join a growing part of the business, and really help shape how we do exemplary delivery from one of the UK's most vibrant cities.

The Role

The role will mainly focused on client activity (80%), however you will need to be able to focus on internal initiatives too. You will therefore need to influence your client to extract yourself from client work as and when required to do so.

This role reports to the Head of Delivery (Bristol), but will have a dotted line to the UK CTO. Our CTO is responsible for driving and owning all technical initiatives and the Chief Engineer will help to make these reality. You'll have a clear understanding of what technologies are being used across Bristol engagements and work with other regional Chief Engineers to deliver a view of technologies used across our client base.

As with everything that we do, quality will sit at the heart of everything you have exposure to and you'll be responsible for ensuring quality of delivery is maintained. You'll work with senior management on pre-sales and bid activities and promote your technical knowledge through presenting at conferences, blogging and networking.


Above all, you'll be a techy! You'll have a nice breadth of expertise across areas such as Big Data, Machine learning and Cloud. You'll have a good understanding of how to put together software - from short technical spikes to enterprise systems as well as demonstrating both an interest and experience in emerging or modern technology (AI, Blockchain, IoT ). A strong focus on quality is a must, along with excellent communication and listening skills.

This is a new role for BJSS, so this is a great opportunity for someone to come in and shape what the Chief Engineer role looks like across the BJSS group!
