Harvey Nash have been retained by a market leading organisation in Leeds who are looking to hire a Software Development Director. They are now in a position where they are going to invest significantly in their tech/development function as it expands and technical spreads it's wings. This is a key hire within the business who will oversee all things development as they embark on a structured 3 year development plan.
The role itself will be there to embark on a major technical change and transformation journey over the next few years into the cloud, Azure to be specific. The current team is 25 strong spread across applications, web, cloud, support, qa and data; you'll sit at the helm and drive this organisation into the cloud with some critical development projects. Outside of the day to day tech with the team you'll be part of a larger technical function that reports directly into the CIO and you'll play a pivotal part in driving tech and changes to the business, products and applications going forward; in this role you won't be a number in a huge cog but a key player in a tech function.
Your key reports will be a combination of Team Leads who you'll guide outside of the larger function to influence the tech direction of the main applications.
This is a unique opportunity to join this type of business at this stage in their journey where you will be able to come in and make an impact whilst moulding the business to key ways of working going forward. We're looking for a mixture of a technical leader who was once hands-on and an Agile enthusiast, someone who can challenge but also influence tech decision across the development function and the wider business.
Ideally you'll have two things;
- Experience working on large scale ERP solutions (SAP, Oracle, Dynamics, Progress, etc)
- Previously taken a business into and worked on modern cloud based applications (ideally Azure focused).
Outside of this we're keen to find someone who can lead an incredibly talented team. If you've worked on large complex global applications that would be hugely beneficial given the size and scale of the growth planned.
In return they are offering a generous salary; £90-100,000 p/a plus a range of benefits, inc. car or car allowance (10%), bonus (up to 25%), private healthcare, pension, holidays, etc. This role will have occasional travel, 3-4 times per month within the UK (Midlands) and infrequently outside of the UK.
