Head of Development

Job Ref: 2353

We’re excited to have again partnered with a business we’ve supported for the last 6 years, this time to deliver a number of key senior hires as the business looks to bolster its leadership structure. An integral part of the project is the search for a new Head of Development to lead innovation of their flagship UK product suite.

What will you be doing?

As Head of Development, you’ll lead strategic definition and implementation on a very well established suite of products within financial services, in line with a global transformation strategy already underway for the business.

You’ll have complete autonomy (including budgetary) in your leadership of the Innovation team - c35 Developers, Testers, BA & PMs, and will be asked to cement the product’s position at the forefront of the marketplace.

As this is a multinational software business, you’ll lead the collaboration between the UK business and global, as well as being the key link between R&D and stakeholders across Professional Services, Sales and Clients.

What experience do you need? 

  • Proven experience in either a Software Development Manager or Head of Development capacity
  • Track record of growing teams whilst fostering an environment of personal development for your existing engineers
  • Exposure to a number of tech stacks would be beneficial, although specific domain knowledge is not required
  • Solid interpretation of Agile but more importantly, an ability to clearly identify and implement the most relevant aspects of the methodology appropriate to the business
  • Ideally, Financial Services experience but you’ll need a track record of managing internal (including international) and external stakeholders

This opportunity will very much suit a Head of Development or Software Development Manager with a strong product background, ideally in either FinTech or Financial Services. However, we’d welcome applicants who’ve worked on products deployed in similarly regulated settings.

We look forward to hearing from you!
