A Bit About Us
We’re currently embarking on a hugely exciting internal transformation; transitioning our development teams to fully independent, autonomous and cross functional product teams; a business wide initiative led by our CEO John Roberts.
Currently we have over twenty development teams and a tech department of over two hundred people, and we're not slowing down.
As part of this transformation we’re rearchitecting our platforms to separate our estate into independently deployable products, around which we’re rebuilding cross functional teams within a Team of Teams structure; groups of teams with shared objectives and overarching goals.
More About the Role
As a senior member of a squad, not only will you lead and facilitate technical decision making, you’ll be the one the rest of the squad turn to for guidance.
A coach and mentor, you’ll help less experienced developers on their journey in producing better, cleaner and intentional code.
You’ll help them better understand agile ways of working, enabling the team to work as one to creating better outcomes and raise the bar right across the team.
It goes without saying that you’ll also be getting your hands dirty, producing top drawer code and applications
