? Want to work in a well-funded cutting-edge tech startup, led and advised by experienced entrepreneurs?
? Want to manage and grow a high performing team, with freedom to do things your way?
? Want to work with blockchain and distributed computing?

Your new company
My client is a Bournemouth based, blockchain compute ethical innovation company. They are developing distributed computing and blockchain solutions that make a positive impact on the world we live in. The initial software product is changing the global cloud computing market, facilitating new greener IT, enabling anyone to monetise their hardware and raising substantial funds from spare IT capacity.

Currently the business is undergoing a sustained period of growth and are looking to recruit a Software Development Manager to spearhead the development team of eight. You'll be joining a team of 15+, working from their modern head office location in Central Bournemouth, 5 minutes' walk from the train/bus station and to the beach.

Your new role
My client is a well-funded startup business with enormous ambition comprised of developers, techies and entrepreneurs. As a member of the management team you'll play a crucial role in building a business with a real mission, helping take them from start-up to major player.

The ethos in the team is to challenge accepted norms and to build amazing products, including working on building a distributed computing platform using the Ethereum OS. You will have overall stewardship of the team, be responsible for introducing development methodologies and software best practice, selecting appropriate tools and technologies, running code reviews and hiring other bright individuals to join your team. It's truly a role you can make your own.

Your people skills will be equally as important. There is a real buzz and energy in the team but every good manager needs the right motivational makeup to channel that energy towards deliverables. You'll work at the architecture level on high level designs/proof of concepts/strategy and will have an ability to communicate these to business people and to techies in equal measure. With this in mind and given the size of the business it's expected that you'll not be completely removed from the code and will wish to offer hands-on contributions to projects at times.

What you'll need to succeed
Their key areas of focus moving forward are distributed computing, blockchain and cryptocurrency, and whilst you don't need these from day one, an interest in this space and a commitment to open source and the shared economy will be intrinsic to their goals.

You must have previous experience leading a development team and will have successfully used modern software approaches and methodologies (Agile/DevOps) as part of your role.

A positive mindset, flexible "can do" attitude, ability to create innovative solutions, and strong organisational skills will allow you to fit the culture.

The development stack that sits underneath this includes JavaScript, React, Vue, Node, Electron, C++, Bash, Redis, MySQL and Git. You should have experience with DevOps and will have exposure to microservices/containers (Docker/Kubernetes).

Good experience with any cloud platform will be of interest, though Google Cloud (Storage, Build, IoT Core) will make you a standout candidate.

What you'll get in return
They offer access to a share options scheme, bonus cryptocurrency tokens, an unlimited holiday policy, free town centre parking, free breakfast/snacks and a very flexible working policy. The offices are extremely modern and open plan encouraging regular knowledge shares and collaboration.
