The Job

Software Team Lead - Sensor Platform
Kentish Town, London

We are looking for a fantastic Software Team Lead to help us build a new operating system for cities, solving congestion, prioritising cyclists, and eliminating accidents.

About us
At Vivacity, we make cities smarter. We provide the operating system for road transport, helping cities apply modern technology to problems like congestion, air pollution, and adapting to the autonomous transition.

This starts with our computer vision-based sensors, which provide real-time data to understand accident blackspots, inform infrastructure changes, and support autonomous vehicles. This data is fed into our cutting-edge Reinforcement Learning algorithms for traffic lights to prioritise cyclists and reduce congestion.

We are a fast-growing, 70-person start up, with a presence in most major cities across the UK. Following £5m of investment earlier this year, we are doubling the size of our team, including heavy investment in technology. Join us to help our ultimate goal to make the European vision of a Smart City - one which makes the city work for the community.

About the role
The production engineering teams at Vivacity implement pipelines processing billions of data points, build beautiful dashboards, and manage our world-leading AI systems controlling critical traffic infrastructure. You will lead a 4-6 person team of experienced engineers, working with modern languages including Golang and JavaScript (Node and React), and building on top of cutting-edge cloud infrastructure tools including Docker, Kubernetes and Kafka.

About you
You are an experienced software engineering team leader with strong technical and people skills. You must be familiar with modern software development methodologies and comfortable working in an agile environment. You are an empathetic leader who is skilled at getting the best out of your team members.

Your day-to-day tasks include
* Leading the technical vision and strategy for your team and product
* Architecting and designing scalable, production-ready software solutions
* Building a world-class team through mentoring, managing and training your team members
* Contributing to hands-on software development as part of the team

Requirements for the role
* 5 years of software development experience
* 3 years of experience leading software teams
* Experience in building complex software products and successfully taking them to market
* Experience working with Golang
* Experienced in test driven development and familiarity with common DevOps tools and CI/CD processes

The following would further strengthen an application
* Experience of Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus and Kafka
* Hands-on experience with IoT devices
* Evidence of close collaboration with research teams
* Experience in Smart Cities technologies

Salary range: £60,000-75,000
