Full service agency

Our client is looking for an experienced Tech Manager to join the team in London.

The client

You’ll be joining an expanding company (currently at 80 and aiming for 120 by April!) that works closely with some massive brands, including Google and Just Eat. They’ve got some pretty awesome offices based a 5 minute walk from London Bridge.

In the position you’ll be working closely with the Delivery Lead to ensure smooth running of workstreams, as well as ensuring that all work delivered for clients is of a consistently high standard. You’ll be directly in charge of 6 engineers and will be helping to grow their career.

  • Working closely with the Product team to deliver quality work.
  • Setting standards and guidelines for the technical team.
  • Ensuring an optimal lifecycle process, making sure it is rooted in best practices from both a development and security perspective.
  • Making sure that the quality of the technical output produced on the workstreams is top notch.
  • Coaching and mentoring the programme technical teams, as well as line managing several engineers, i.e. career progression plans.
  • Liaising with key stakeholders in order to ensure the momentum of the project.

What experience do you need?

  • The capability to carry out code reviews on JavaScript and Python codebases.
  • Prior experience with Vanilla JS frameworks, ideally Angular or React.

  • A knowledge of mobile development, preferably in Android or iOS.

Why work with these guys?

Our client is at the forefront of its industry, in a period of growth within the London office. There are also offices in NY, AUX and SF which means you will get to work with a wider global operations team as they define and implement operational procedures.
