Technical Coach

Redgate are looking for a new Coach to help transform our engineering organisation. 

Coaches at Redgate work across product engineering, improving working practices and supporting groups and individuals in their learning & development as we tackle exciting challenges with new products and technologies. 

We do that by forming strategic partnerships with development teams, providing coaching and mentoring services, organising or running structured training exercises, and working on improvement projects within Redgate. 

You’ll need to be able to introduce new ideas to Redgate. Those may come from your existing knowledge and experience of delivering modern, quality software, through your network of contacts throughout the software industry, or anywhere else that works. Ideas are nothing without execution; We care about trying ideas, learning from the ones that fail to better inform the next ideas. 

An engineering background will help you, as our coaches stay close to the work that’s being done. You won’t be doing hands-on product development or testing, but you’ll be an active partner to people who are building our products, and you’ll need to do more than “talk the talk”. 

If you’re excited by a varied role, working with people across all levels of experience and seniority, and are passionate about being a part of Redgate pushing towards a state-of-the-art approach to software development, we’d love to hear from you.

 

To get an idea of the varied work we’ve been doing, here’s some examples:

The Redgate Recruitment process

Step 1

Step 1. Application

Step one is your application. So write a letter and upload it on the page for the job you’re interested in. Tell us about yourself, your skills and experience, and talk about why you’d like to work at Redgate. Include a CV, or a link to your LinkedIn page, and if you'd like to show some of your work, attach your portfolio or point us to Stack Overflow or GitHub.

Step 2

Step 2. Assessment

We’ll acknowledge your application straight away, review it and keep you updated on your progress. We might also email an assessment to complete, or invite you for a brief telephone interview. If we don’t think you’re suitable, we’ll inform you – and tell you why. We won’t let you down, we’ll try and help you.

Step 3

Step 3. 1st Interview

Step three is an interview in our Cambridge office. We’ll talk about your work history, your covering letter or video, and any assessments you’ve completed. You might also be asked to do some work-based tests and, if you’re applying for a technical role, expect technical questions – we love talking tech.

Step 4

Step 4. 2nd Interview

The second interview typically lasts two hours. You’ll be talking to different people, you may well meet people you’ll be working with, and we’ll allow time for you to ask questions. We don’t have a dress code at Redgate, by the way, so dress in whatever makes you comfortable.

Step 1

Step 5. Offer

If we think you’d be great at Redgate, we’ll make an offer and iron out any details like relocation issues. If we don’t think you’ll fit in right away, we’ll tell you why. Some people have taken our advice, boned up their knowledge and come back a year later and got a job. It helps.

This is our typical recruitment process, though for some roles it might be a bit different.
