The role provides leadership over a new team that are being formed to introduce Machine Learning capability into their already world-leading software platform. The intention is to not only enhance their use of data to make business decisions, but also to create new products. As such this role will not only manage the outputs of the team, but continuously improve software engineering best practices, as well ongoing people & resource management.

This role gives an incoming Software Development Manager the chance to help grow this team, but also represent it across their global business and contribute to global engineering best practices. As things stand, our client are currently introducing a microservices architecture and increasing automating testing & deployments, plus leveraging the use of Cloud-based solutions like AWS.

You will have previous experience of working closely with Software Development teams, with an in-depth knowledge of Agile, plus development best practice such as BDD, Continuous Integration & Continuous Deployment.

Whilst not hands-on with the technology, you still need to be able to understand the technology there. You will have background in building, leading & motivating teams, able to lead Scrum teams and improve development process & tooling.

  • Strong leadership capabilities ensuring a highly performing and engaged team

  • Broad experience of Agile delivery and knowledge of Agile techniques such as User Stories, Behaviour Driven Development (BDD), Test-driven development (TDD), Continuous Integration & Delivery and Automated Testing etc.
  • Strong interpersonal, written and presentation skills - service orientation, collaboration, facilitation and negotiation skills, situational awareness and conflict resolution.
