Head of Development Opportunity - Software House using next-generation tech

A Head of Development role has opened up with one of Bristol's best tech companies.

This is an incredibly varied and engaging role for someone who is keen to bring their own fresh new ways of thinking to a company.

The Role:

This position is bursting with opportunities to drive this company's market-leading software platform to its next exciting level. The platform itself is already moving into the sphere of microservices and event-driven architectures with a back-end largely in C#.Net and the front-end currently in Angular.

You will have genuine autonomy to take ownership of the technical roadmap. What's vital to this company's outlook is that this person acts as a supportive and knowledgeable facilitator to the team.

We're looking for someone who thrives in a role dedicated to leading an incredibly strong cross-functional team of around 10-12 people including full-stack & front-end developers, BIs and platform engineers.

This company put's strong relationships at the core of its success, so we're looking for someone who enjoys building relationships across the business, so that they can be the best and most efficient Head of Development that they can be.

The day-to-day:

-mostly coaching, guiding & encouraging the team with an Agile delivery management approach

-take ownership of the technical roadmap, being able to look at the birds-eye view

-cost projections/client bids & presentations/stakeholder liaising

-Appraisals as often as you deem best

-keeping up-to-date with next-generation technologies

The company culture:

Where to begin! This company's commitment to encouraging a healthy work-life balance is second to none. Everyone benefits when people feel valued, supported and able to enjoy the day-to-day - a healthy work-life balance is a great recipe for innovative thinking!

They're committed to inclusion and a culture of positivity and integrity; with plenty of social activities (virtual for now). Their offices are in the heart of Bristol, within a very cool tech space of likeminded creative tech companies (not to mention the private gym and more.)

This position is pivotal to continuing the positive and inclusive culture they're proud to have built, so if that's something you value too - we'd love to hear from you.


-Experience leading a team

-Passion for, and experience with, Agile delivery

-A strong communicator

-A continuing curiosity in next-generation technologies, and desire to utilize them

Tech Background:

While the role is hands-off, a solid technical background in related technologies is vital to leading from the front and contributing to the technical decisions, so ideally you will be familiar with:

  • C#
  • .Net
  • Azure
  • Microservices Architecture & distributed systems design
  • Event Driven Architecture
  • REST
  • Reporting and data warehousing concepts
  • Javascript/HTML/CSS
  • Sql Server
