Are you up for a challenge?

This is a 2 year project working on a digital transformation project. It will not be an easy role, you will be in for a real challenge but it will be something to be proud of. It will keep you driving forward on a daily basis.

Following a restructure at the very beginning of the project, there is now the need for a Development Manager. The manager will lead a small team of developers as they look to overhaul existing systems and the way which the organisation has delivered in the past. The team is now running in an agile manner and focus on creating products which will be delivered to over 150,000 customers, plus an array of internal stakeholders.

The digital transformation is at the forefront of the organisation and is being backed by senior management. The team is highly visible within the organisation and therefore you will be tasked with delivering effectively.

You will be working in a java / open source technology stack, with a little bit of C#. You'll need to take ownership of the projects quickly and get to understand the tech stack as you go.

You will need to drive the team, coach and mentor individuals, whilst also managing key stakeholders across the business.

The role is for a 2 year, fixed term contract basis. The view is that if you want the role permanently at the end of the projects, it will be yours.

Why apply?

- A great challenge of a digital transformation
- Excellent backing in the business
- Training / up-skilling opportunities - you will learn as you go in certain areas.
- A vast amount of products to work on
- There's a huge client / customer base
- Complex systems and processes - you won't get bored!
- Opportunity to go permanent afterwards
- Awesome offices with gym, restaurants, cafe and chill out zone

- Java / open source technologies background - preferable
- Understanding of agile
- Be able to work under pressure
- Ability to take ownership of projects
