Java Technical Lead


Join Entelect as a Technical Lead where you will lead and drive technical direction, quality and delivery – not only within your project, but also across the entire company.

As a Technical Lead, you have seen several systems fail, succeed and evolve, and are a master in some of the technologies you’ve encountered. You have enough experience that you can architect and structure a project, which would conform to the enterprise environment, whilst mentoring and guiding others. That means you can deal with scoping, expectation management, architecture, design, influencing decision-making at higher levels and some customer management. Your experience allows you to quickly pick up new frameworks and technologies, and to evaluate them effectively. You’ll be part of a community of highly skilled professionals, all dedicated to innovation and excellence. This is your chance to elevate your career and make a significant impact in a dynamic environment.
