Release Coordinator - Prince2 / SDLC

An expanding technology business in Manchester are looking to add a Release Coordinator to the team, who will organisation and ultimately coordinate the end-of sprint releases of code.

This role would be ideal for someone looking to make some early steps into the world of technology or transitioning from something like a project coordinator position, into a more software development related position.

The Release Coordinator essentially coordinates between several teams of software developers, software testers, Cloud Engineers & Database Engineers, pulling together all the code that the various teams have been writing over the course of a planned 2-4 week sprint. This role ensures that all the various teams submit fully-tested code to a Release Manager, and that the Cloud Engineers & Database Engineers have ensured there is enough Database capacity and subscribed cloud storage for a coordinated release of updated code.

As such the role requires excellent organisational skills, ideally knowledge of MS Project and other Office 365 packages, strong communication skills (written & spoken) and ideally an understanding of the software development lifecycle. You will certainly need to be quick & proactive learner, and be prepared to hassle & harry people to meet deadlines.

Required knowledge / experience

Excellent organisational skills
Knowledge of MS Office 365 & MS Project

Excellent written & spoken communication skills

Knowledge of the Software Development lifecycle
Prince 2 and / or ITIL qualifications hugely beneficial
Knowledge of software / application release process and what is required for these to be successful
