About the role

We are always looking for Lead Technical Consultants/Lead Architects who want to work in a dynamic, rapidly developing environment. We use cutting edge cloud technology to enable transformation.

Merapar is a growing software services company. We develop mission critical cloud solutions for clients in the TV and Media, Fintech, IoT and Automotive industries. Millions of people use our award-winning software solutions on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure our customers get the very best experience and business value from the Cloud.

As a Merapar employee you will collaborate on interesting and challenging projects. Our team members in the UK, Netherlands, Germany and Poland work together frequently. Our people are critical to our success and we encourage and invest in training and certification. As an agile organisation we believe in giving as much autonomy to our teams as possible and invite you to help shape our future.

We are an inclusive employer and are actively working to improve diversity in our organisation. We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups, including women and ethnic minorities, and are happy to make special accomodations for disability and neurodiversity in our interview process.

If you are someone who relishes new challenges, working with multiple clients and delivering transformational projects then Merapar is for you.

You will:

  • work closely with our clients and development teams to deliver innovative software and services.

  • coach and motivate others in the team, listen and share knowledge.
  • build strong relationships with stakeholders at all levels and become a trusted partner.
  • guide the design of complex integrations and produce appropriate technical documentation.
  • learn new technologies, design patterns and processes, introducing them where appropriate.
  • enjoy flexibility and freedom in return for passion and commitment.

About You

You will have:

  • substantial experience as a software architect and/or developer.

  • hands-on cloud experience, preferably AWS.
  • familiarity with Continuous Delivery and Agile methodologies.
  • a comprehensive understanding of security, scalability and resilience.
  • the ability to identify and solve problems and work with minimal guidance and direction.
  • an open mind and a natural curiosity for new technologies.
  • built strong relationships with senior leaders and stakeholders from across the organisation.
  • excellent knowledge of English with first-rate verbal and written communication skills.


This is a full-time position based in the UK. As we do not have a UK office, you are able to work from home as appropriate but should be prepared to commute to clients on a regular basis if required.

Most of our clients have adopted hybrid working practices and support flexible working, though the split between office and home working will vary. If you have any concerns or specific needs we will be happy to discuss flexible working arrangements further.

You should also be prepared to travel within the UK and Europe if needed.
