The Bridge Technology Partners are supporting a national award winning Utilities business with their ambitious growth plans. As part of this huge investment, our client is looking for a Lead Developer with strong Azure and Python skills. Competence with ReactJS is also highly desirable but not essential. 

As the Lead Full-Stack Developer, you will play a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of applications and infrastructure, ensuring speedy software development and deployment. With a unique combination of technical support and IT operations, you will be responsible for continuously improving and updating critical applications and products to align with business requirements. You will also identify and resolve complex incidents and problems while devising technical solutions that cater to the needs of the business.

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Designing, developing, and maintaining web applications (Python & ReactJS) across the business, focusing on Azure functions, APIs, and application integrations.
  • Coaching and leading by example within the continuous development team to add value to our products through development and release processes.
  • Being a technical lead by turning the product backlog into workable solutions inline with, or via change of, the system design. Working with the team to define, develop, test, and deliver business outcomes.
  • Defining, implementing, and maintaining development standards in line with specifications.

To be considered for this role, we require you to have:


  • Strong experience with designing, building, and operating solutions using Azure cloud technologies: Azure authentication products, Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Data Factory, Azure Function Apps, Azure Blob storage, Azure Active Directory, and App-Insights.
  • Exceptional programming, troubleshooting, and analytical skills – following strict coding practises with unit testing, release procedures, coding design, and documentation protocol as well as change management procedures.
  • Hands-on experience with Python: developing and supporting function apps/web applications, familiarity with a microservices architecture, and solid experience in building APIs, experience working with EventHub and NoSQL (Preferably Cosmos).
  • Experience in continuous improvement and operational support roles – with full end-to-end agile product delivery lifecycle (including incident lifecycle) experience, must have the ability to investigate and analyse information with strong technical debugging skills to find the causes of any production issues and to draw conclusions.
  • Good knowledge of ReactJS is preferable but not mandatory.

If this sounds like you, please get in touch ASAP for consideration.
