Platform Lead - Digital and Web Technologies - London - £70-85k plus excellent package.

A leading online Publisher requires a Platform Lead to take technical ownership of Architecture, Development and Delivery for a complete platform transformation including new Website, CMS, CRM and Analytics.

This transformation will include a number of new tools designed to increase revenue through increasing subscription and retention. For example, identity and access management, payment gateways, elastic search, analytics, customer journey and UX, semantec search, marketing automation etc.

Working closely with 3rd Party suppliers, the Platform Lead will act as the CTO's right hand person to own delivery, including ensuring the suppliers architecture and design are aligned to the platform strategy and ensuring the 3rd party development teams are delivering in accordance to agreed deliverables.

Platform Lead's must have a strong technical background stemming from web development and progressed into a senior position where web architecture has played a prominent part of the role including owning development, design and integrations.

This is phenomenal opportunity to join a leading online publisher and play a major role in their digital transformation programme which planned over the next 2-3 years, and with a CTO with a track record of grooming his replacement, the opportunity for career progression is second to none.
