Manchester, Greater Manchester

cinch is transforming the UK’s car buying experience. We’re taking one of the last industries to go digital and disrupting it with trailblazing tech and beautifully simple customer experiences. Now as we accelerate from start-up to scale-up, we’re hiring talented, ambitious and passionate people to join us and drive our success.

Why join cinch? We’re dedicated to building and being a great technology business. Together, we’re creating a culture that is every bit as faff-free as our online customer experience, where communication is open, decisions are made quickly and everybody has the freedom to bring in new ideas. Of course, working together doesn’t mean we’re in the same room every day. Our teams spend around 60% of their time working remotely – and that’s not going to change.

The role

We’re growing fast. We test as a team; we automate everything. We never micromanage. Our Engineers are given the freedom to think creatively and to go live with their own ideas quickly. As our Tech Lead Engineer, you’ll lead your squad from development to deployment, working closely with UXers, Product Owners and Data Analysts amongst others. It’s an opportunity to help build on our culture of collaboration between tribes and squads, fostering outcome-focused teamwork, tackling complex challenges as a multi-disciplinary group, continuously adapting the technology we utilise.

Our tech stack is an object of envy; Serverless, TypeScript, React.js, DynamoDB, EventBridge, React.js, GitHub. It’s an event-driven architecture with testing automated. And we never stop searching for the next piece of the jigsaw. As well as leading a multidisciplinary squad, you’ll have the opportunity to join Communities of Practice - a group of like-minded individuals from different disciplines who explore ideas, skills and technologies, sharing their knowledge and developing their expertise. We’re the first people in the UK to take this 100-year-old industry and make it digital, so we’ve got plenty of exciting problems to solve.

The person

This is a senior role - you’ll arrive at cinch with a deep understanding of web applications and the surrounding stacks, as well as experience of building and supporting public cloud apps using a strongly typed programming language. You need to understand the importance of using automation to drive quality code, as well as being able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of service-oriented architectures and appreciate good architectural and solution design. Most of all, you’ll be excited and enthused by the idea of collaborating with people from different disciplines and working together to build something truly groundbreaking. We certainly are.

If you’re open to new ideas, you’re ready to collaborate, you’re ready to embrace new technologies - together, we’ll do great things. Apply now.
