* Hands-on software development and scrum mastering where required

* Inspiring and motivating team members to achieve the best they can and fostering a culture of continuous improvement

* Recruiting new developers and implementing staff development projects and programs

* Providing ongoing feedback, coaching and training to support each team member in their career development, working with HR as required

* Fostering effective communications within the Solutions Group for status updates and issue reporting

* Be the spokesperson for the team and champion its accomplishments and requirements with upper management and adjacent teams

* Maintain personal technical expertise to work effectively with team members and the broader community

* Keep up with software industry trends, as well as development activities in other groups within

* Identifying, anticipating and tackling technical issues early

* Evangelising good development principles and practices

Skills and experience:

* Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Maths, or other related field

* Cross platform (Windows, OS-X, Linux) software development experience

* Strong front-end web development skills, including “responsive” techniques using JavaScript frameworks such as Angular or React

* Experience of server-side development using Node.js; experience with Java and/or NoSQL technologies such as MongoDB would also be beneficial

* Knowledge of Python and web application frameworks, particularly Django, would be beneficial

* Full cycle software engineering skills, e.g. object-oriented design, design patterns, unit testing, build and deployment automation

* Formal training and/or experience in Agile methodologies including Scrum, with a passion for producing quality software
