Head of Software Development - Agency

Skills: Understanding of PHP, Laravel, React with previous leadership experience

Location: Kidderminster - 3 days in office

Salary: Up to £80,000 (DOE)

The Role

This is a truly exciting opportunity to have an integral role in an innovative agency to take full control of the development team in order to support the continuation of the building, development and shape of their global clients applications as well as helping members of the team flourish in their own personal development within the business!

As the Head of Development, you will have complete ownership of the overall vision and strategy of the department from a technical perspective and will lead the development team in order to help drive new innovations in the digital applications for their clients. This is a pivotal role in terms of delegating work and responsibilities to the team of developers and informing them of technical direction such as coding standards, setting and monitoring KPI's, therefore your communication and leadership skills are a must!

The development team itself will be cross functional so they do require someone with a background in development with strong experience in either front end React or back end Laravel … ideal if you are a superstar and have worked with both!

One of the greatest factors about working with them is that you are fully invited to express yourself and challenge the current ways of working so you most definitely have tons of autonomy in terms of changing how the team can drive improvements!

This is a great opportunity for someone either looking to take that next step up from a current lead developer position or someone that has already had experience working as a Head of Development but is not looking to just tick boxes of requirements from others!

Role Requirements

  • Proven experience in a similar role such as a Lead Developer or Head of Development where you are responsible for delegation and ownership of projects and mentorship of others
  • Previous background working as a developer with either React or Laravel or both!
  • Any previous experience working in an agency would be advantageous but not essential
  • Happy travelling into the Kidderminster office at least 3 days a week (this is purely for team support and making communication a lot easier for yourself when all together!)
