We’re recruiting for an emerging technology company based on the outskirts of Exeter as they seek a Software Development Team Lead to help guide the team development efforts towards successful project delivery.
Working in a high-growth industry, and supporting some huge international clients on some really unique projects, it’s a brilliant place to work. Company culture is a big thing for them; they ensure each member of the team feels valued and listened to - ideas are welcomed and training is encouraged. It’s quite laid back and informal in the office, but for those who prefer to work from home there’s also long-term scope to do so too.
Your role as Software Development Team lead will involve:
Coaching, mentoring and providing technical leadership to the team
Maintaining high standards of software quality by establishing good practices and habits
Identifying and encouraging areas of growth and improvement within the team to allow everyone to progress
Helping to plan, design, develop, test and maintain applications built on WordPress technologies
Assisting with collecting and documenting user requirements, development of user stories, estimates and work plans
Preparing reporting, manuals and other relevant documentation on the status, operation and maintenance of software
Designing, developing and unit testing applications
Taking part in peer-reviews of solution designs and related code
Working with colleagues in the migration of legacy applications to WordPress technologies
Resolving technical and applications problems and assessing opportunities for improvement
The skills and experience we’re looking for:
5+ years’ experience in Software Development and previous experience of leading a technical team
Experience with source control management systems and CI/CD environments
Confident with Agile development methodologies including Kanban and Scrum
Someone who is self-motivated and happy working independently and as part of a team
An excellent communicator - both internally and with external business stakeholders
Deployment and programming of WordPress would be beneficial
Experience with UI design and prototyping is advantageous but not essential
The company offer flexible hours, remote working, occasional opportunities to travel abroad, regular team socials and more.
