I recently started a role for a new company. When I interviewed it was sold as a technical lead role, they seemed keen to implement new ideas and improve quality. After nearly three months at the job however it is apparent that this is absolutely not the case. The only focus is on getting things done as soon as possible and that leads to inevitable drop in quality.
I've always been proud that the code I wrote was of high quality and I was hoping this role would allow me to progress to the next level but I feel like I'm becoming a code monkey and rather than my skills improving I fear they are going to decrease as I'm just concentrating on doing things quickly instead of well.
I understand that in any business there is a fine line between speed and quality, but this just seems to too far the other way.
I'm therefore considering moving on. I'm nearly halfway through a 6 month probation period and after that expires then I have an extended notice period.
My question mainly concerns how I approach this scenario with potential new employers. I've got an unblemished record in the 11 years of my career and my last role prior to this one was 6 years so it's not like I'm a habitual job hopper. How can I explain to potential new employers my reasons for wanting to leave without sounding negative?
