Agile Software Development Manager - London

My client is looking for an experienced Software Development Manger to lead an Agile team.

My client builds technologies that customers and colleagues love and other builders respect. But they are also building more than technologies, they are also building themselves.

In the end my client expects to build the best place in the world to build the best tech in retail.

The role

You should develop and realize a strategic technical vision to transform the shopping experience on my client's website. Key to this will be leading a program of re-engineering our customer journeys using open source technologies and creating APIs to support ecommerce and the wider business.

Ideally you would have worked on migrating full-stack solutions to open-source supported capabilities and most importantly design and deliver innovative customer experiences and journeys.

  • Build a culture to bring the best out of your teams by inspiring your team and building strong relationships at all levels.
  • Managing around 20 developers, in multi-skilled functional teams.
  • Working with Product Managers and Developers to define the Vision and technical direction.
  • Instilling a spirit of continuous improvements across the teams.
  • Drive Development of new Features.
  • Manage multiple deliveries working closely with the Product Management Teams.
  • Tread the line between delivering quickly and building sustainable code.

  • An engineering background in Java, APIs, micro services and web technologies.
  • Record of developing and managing high performing teams.
  • Knowledge of JavaScript and UI development (React.js and Node.js experience would be a bonus).
  • Knowledge of Continuous integration and associated tools.
  • Attention to detail, able to foresee potential pitfalls before they arise.

Highly competitive salary and package offered
