From senior stakeholders to junior developers,
you’ll make sure everyone is speaking the same language.

Here at HMGCC, we’re a centre of technical excellence. Using world-class tech, we develop unique communication systems to help safeguard the country. We’re now looking for individuals with excellent communication skills. People who can help us to find solutions to complex problems – all while inspiring everyone from senior stakeholders to junior developers.

The role

In this crucial role, you’ll keep up with ever-evolving technologies, and lead the end-to-end development of key products. These solutions will work across various domains, helping to solve some of the most complex problems. In fact, you’ll take on challenges considered too difficult or sensitive to be done elsewhere.

Uniquely, you’ll decide on your specialism. You might directly lead a team of developers – defining, planning and monitoring their work. As part of this, you’ll collaborate with project managers to successfully deliver on time. Proactive, you’ll choose how to split your time between hands-on development and technical management.

Or, as a natural problem-solver, you’ll oversee the engineering lifecycle on some of our most intricate projects. Operating at a programme level, you’ll manage the eco-systems of technologies, and shape future developments. No matter which route you take, you’ll work towards the best outcomes and have the chance to manage other Technical Leads.

Your profile

To join, you’ll need experience of working on software projects where you had to understand the technical elements of the solution. This will include working on, or leading, projects relating to Windows, Linux or Mac. With your background, you’ll have a practical understanding of the principles and techniques used to shape engineering projects.  

Ideally, you’ll have a background of leading software engineers. But importantly, you’ll have excellent communication skills, along with a natural ability to influence customers and stakeholders. Proactive, driven and confident, you’ll constantly improve your professional development and solve problems.


In return, you’ll take advantage of a creative environment, world-class training and flexible working. As part of the Technical Lead community, you’ll soon have an impact that’s out of this world.
