Are you an experienced Senior Software/Application Development Manager? Have you managed Product driven Development teams through change, transformation and the adoption of Agile? If so, read on…

You will be working for a highly respected and innovative organisation, currently making significant investment to re-platform and re-launch existing software to new product based software as a service solution (SaaS). You will be responsible for leading an existing team of developers with change and transformation is very much on the agenda. You will lead and deliver the shift from traditional development methods and processes to Agile. Therefore, you'll need a strong background in Agile and ideally some experience of leading a transition from waterfall to Agile.

There is an existing set of applications, built on legacy platforms and the new work will be to build a new set of products (SaaS) using a Microsoft first approach (C#.Net, Azure) and moving from a project delivery to a product based model.

As well as leading an in-house team of developers, you will also be responsible for a number of external 3rd party providers.

Key Responsibilities:-

* Head up the software engineering function
* Ensure effective delivery of software solutions to agreed time and budget, meeting and exceeding stakeholder expectations
* In collaboration with other members of the IT leadership team, design and oversee projects to improve applications, products and services
* Ownership/input into identifying and implementing the appropriate tooling
* Provide strong leadership and focus on the definition and introduction of industry standard, modern software engineering methods across the teams (Agile)

Required experience :-

* Strong Microsoft background (.Net stack) and Cloud (Azure)
* Experience in a leadership role in a 'Product based' development organisation
* Experience of developing SaaS solutions
* Developing application engineering road maps and strategies
* Experience of growing, running and developing high performing software engineering teams
* Application Development methodologies. Proven at implementing/transitioning to new modern methods e.g. from Waterfall to Agile/Kanban/Scrumban/Spotify
* Demonstrable understanding of other technologies across front and back end, data platforms along with experience of legacy migrations
* Experience with on premise, cloud, mobile and COTS products

This is great opportunity to join a great organisation at a genuinely exciting time. This is not a BAU role - it's all about change and creating/building a new modern successful set of products. You'll have hold a high profile position and make a big difference to the future commercial success of their software products.

On offer is a very competitive salary, car allowance, bonus and pension scheme.
