Reporting to the Development Group Lead, the Development Lead will be responsible for the delivery of key projects to the business, as well as the ongoing day to day management of the developers within the team including coaching and mentoring. From a project perspective, the right person will be involved from the very start of the project to produce high level estimates and designs. From there, they will be responsible for creating a delivery plan and organising the team to deliver it, as well as working with stakeholders to resolve or remove blockers and raise risks or issues. Whilst the Development Lead's main responsibility will be to manage the team and deliver projects, they should also have a very good level of technical knowledge. The Development Lead will also be expected to work across the wider Development and Technology departments to improve and rollout new processes alongside their peers. Current Projects The company has recently delivered a new state of the art, digital front end to our clients and their investors. One of the key features of this is a DMS integration, that sends documents created by Pershing to the investor portal for end investors to see. The application is responsible for uploading millions of documents a year and the technologies used for this include Hangfire and RabbitMQ. We are now beginning the second phase of this project, to further enhance this functionality by delivering electronic notifications and by suppressing printed copies where the investor has opted for online documents only. Whilst this is the current project within the team, there are many more in the pipeline. The Development Lead will work in the same capacity for these future projects, which will involve working in different areas of the business. The successful candidate will also be involved in the rollout of new tools and systems to help development processes, such as Jenkins, GIT and Octopus to the wider development department.
