Software Development Manager, £70k, Chesterfield

I am looking for a Software Development Manager to work within an international company, within their Chesterfield office. This role will be within an area of the business that develops software and will be managing a software team within the R&D sector.

If you are an experienced Software Development Manager who has experience in managing development teams then we want to hear from you.

We are specifically looking for someone who has the right attitude and drive. The development team are very experienced but have all been there for a long time and are a little ridged in their development approaches. Although we need someone with a strong character, we don't want someone that will bulldoze the team into submission but instead be able to positively make effective changes and bring in fresh ideas, including the introduction of a more agile development approach.

As this is an R&D team, we are looking for someone who has got extensive experience with product development.

The role isn't a hands on development role, however we are looking for someone who understands the development process and can be the bridge between the development team and the clients and presales team. The development team are made up of 25 experience developers, based within Chesterfield however you will be required to report into a line manager who is based overseas and works in a different time zone, so experience working with overseas development teams or management teams would be beneficial.

We are not looking for a Software Development Manager from any specific development background (i.e. C# or PHP or Java) but if you have experience managing R&D development teams, that would be a huge bonus. We are more interested in the right person with the right attitude who has the ability to motivate and direct the development team.

The package offered for this role will be up to £70k with pension and other attractive benefits.

As this is a global company, international travel will sometimes be required within this role.
