Director of Software Development|
This company has recently had a management buyout to demerge it from an international group it had been part of for the last 5 years or so. The SMT have been with it since prior to that period.
They are about to enter a period of change in the development side (which is core to the company as their business revolves around data analysis and sale of that analysis) and need a strong manager to lead and grow the team through that.
Whilst they do not need you to be a current developer yourself they do need someone who understands modern web based development utilising services such as azure and elastic cloud computing in a Agile / scrum environment along with the usual plethora of Angular, JQuery, SQL & NoSQL, PHP etc. The team is spread across 4 countries on 2 continents (US & Europe) so experience of dealing with multinational projects strongly preferred.
They are after someone able to manage external consultants when needed especially in being able to understand realistic timescales for projects - in fact they are looking for someone who can present to a board meeting and be happy to tell them that they can either have a project for a given budget or by a set date but not both if that is the case.
The offices are set in rural West Berkshire and whilst a degree of home working is expected you must live within a sensible commute, there will also be trips to overseas offices in the US, France and Eastern Europe
Please state salary expectations with application as they have still not set their budget in stone and it is a case of looking at what people can bring to the table against cost
