ustwo is looking for an experienced Tech Principal to support the delivery of our projects. This role can vary in the amount of hands-on development needed, but will involve hands-on technical design and technical leadership of full-stack teams, with support extending to mobile teams, depending on the project.

As a Tech Principal at ustwo you will work in partnership with our Tech Director and other senior technical leaders to design and develop solutions that balance the needs of the clients with the evolution of the technical landscape. You will be required to be hands-on, producing both detailed technical work and high-level architectural designs and be a pragmatic visionary who can translate business needs into workable technology solutions, as well as contributing in shaping our engineering practice.

As a Principal, you will be one of the primary ustwo voices and interface points with clients, and we will look to you to create deep, effective partnerships with our clients and to define and deliver work that creates lasting value. Effective client communication, client management and presentation skills are a core requirement to be effective in this role. Within ustwo, as someone skilled at managing others you are comfortable adapting your approach to the needs of each team member without compromising on deep care, achieving positive results, and exhibiting an inclusive and inspirational leadership style essential to maintaining a unique and diverse culture.

ustwo works very hard to win interesting and challenging projects, and you will have a leading role on projects that make a meaningful impact to our clients, their customers, and the world. We work across the project lifecycle, from highly strategic discovery work to launching large-scale build projects and everything in between.

We are open to all types of development backgrounds - whether your experience leans more heavily towards the frontend or the backend is not as important as your overall software expertise, the breadth and depth of your experience working on complex systems, and your ability to collaborate effectively both with your ustwo colleagues and with clients. What is a requirement is that you must have a solid grounding in solution architecture, including cloud-based, on-prem and hybrid solutions, as well as expert-level working knowledge of software development fundamentals including software design patterns, API design, and the SDLC and all of its ceremonies and artefacts.

Location

Our Portuguese team is dotted all around the region as this is currently a fully remote studio. However, a successful candidate would be based in Portugal.
