The Client

Are a multi-award winning technology platform working in the marketing arena who are looking for a Head of Development to join their established team and help guide the continued growth of the business.

Why it’s a great opportunity?

Unlike a typical Head of Development opportunity, you will not just be leveraging your technical knowledge but also your business acumen to help the directors make educated decisions fir the business strategy as a whole.

As the Head of Development, you will be wholly responsive for the evolution of the internal tech stack, ensuring their platform is developed using the latest technologies to improve functionality, UX and effective UI.

What’s needed for me to be considered?

Their current system is built on a LAMP stack, integrating a number of 3rd party API’s with a JavaScript focused front end (AngularJS and ReactJS) so experience developing solutions in those technologies is highly desirable.

You will be experienced in guiding development processes, working with a development team, project managers and key business stakeholders to ensure effective delivery of projects within set parameters.

You will manage the team, conducting team appraisals and assisting in the continued development of the tech team via recruitment, training and guidance.

What next?

Apply today to be considered for this opportunity. If suitable, one of our specialist consultants will be in contact to discuss the opportunity with you in detail prior to submitting your CV to the client.
