Sage People is based on the Salesforce platform while using Angular in the frontend with some legacy Angular.js currently still running.

  • To be successful in this role you will need a broad knowledge of principles, practices, and procedures of software development to facilitate the completion of difficult assignments.

  • As we partner with other teams for a variety of services, you will be partnering with team members across the organization to deliver on commitments.

  • As a Principal Engineer you will also be a Mentor and Coach to more junior members of the engineering teams and help them grow further.


What Are We Looking For?



  • Ideally you will have a deep knowledge of Salesforce or Angular technologies and be able to work in both back end and front end development.

  • Further, you have been working with Agile frameworks, modern design patterns and BDD. As a source control we use Github, with Jira used as a product management system, so any work experience with these are welcome.

  • You will have strong soft skills, as you will be working with a lot of other departments/ areas of the company to promote tools and designs, and come to a conclusion for the best solution possible. Presentations and demos will also be required as part of the normal Agile process.

  • As you are a role model for more junior Engineers, you should feel comfortable in transfering knowledge and incourage them to grow
