Job description

TrustFlight is at the forefront of digitizing the aviation industry with the creation of intelligent workflow applications that automate operating and maintenance processes, enabling our customers to focus on the data and insights that matter. TrustFlight has bases in both England (London & Leamington Spa) and Canada (Vancouver). Our business is rapidly expanding, and we’re proud to share that we’re entirely self-funded and consistently profitable.

Not only are we disrupting the sector, we are creating a great place to work that gives our people the freedom to create, innovate and influence how we do this. We continue to build an amazing group of people who are all here to make our products, services and culture the most envied in the industry!

We are looking for a skilled Technical Lead to join a dedicated team to transform and re-architect a very successful SaaS platform. The project requires modernising the backend to .NET 8 and making it more modular, as well as redeveloping the frontend in JavaScript/React (where much of the focus of this role will be). In addition to the re-architecture, you will work alongside data engineers that will design data capture strategies to create new services. You will also work alongside AI engineers to upgrade digital workflows to become more highly automated with augmented decision support for our customers.

Your role will inspire fresh ideas that encourage us to continuously learn and improve, allowing us to elevate our platform and bring out its full potential, making the aviation industry a more efficient and safer place to be. TrustFlight values leadership and performance as paramount within our team culture. In this role, we seek individuals who embody strength in leadership, are driven by objectives, and champions in exceeding expectations, inspiring those around them.


  • Assist hands-on in leading the redevelopment of our SaaS platform (particularly on the frontend side), driving modernization and integration of AI-driven features.

  • Define, evaluate, and optimise technical processes to ensure efficiency and uphold quality standards.

  • Bring forth innovative ideas, even in situations where solutions seem limited, infusing a fresh perspective into our development approach.

  • Serve as the go-to expert for technical queries.

  • Influence business decisions by contributing insightful perspectives that consider both technical and strategic aspects.

  • Line-manage a squad of software engineers and testers.

  • Collaborate with other Technical Leads on cross-product initiatives, fostering a unified approach to technology advancement.

  • Work closely with other teams across the organisation to ensure close integration of products and alignment to the overall technology strategy.

  • Play a key role in the recruitment process, assessing candidates and helping to build a high-performing technical team.

Job requirements

You ideally need the following to qualify:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a related field

  • Proficiency in .NET, JavaScript/React and familiarity with Python

  • Proven track record of successfully leading technical projects in a SaaS development environment

  • Excellent leadership skills, inspiring and mentoring a team to achieve outstanding results

  • Architectural acumen

  • Strong understanding of the capabilities, scope, and limitations of the current state of AI

  • Experience in problem solving prompt engineering
