I am looking for a Software Development Manager to join my clients Digital Technology team based in their Newcastle Upon Tyne HQ on the basis of a 12 month fixed term contract. If you would like to stay after the 12 months there is also the option to do so! Whether you are office or home based is fully flexible! You can be 100% remote if you wish as getting the job done right is what's important - not where you do it from!

In an increasingly digital and data driven world, they work with their customers to create intelligent products, which involves writing complex software and working with modern technologies like machine learning. The team all share the same goal which is to deliver game changing solutions that will transform the productivity of their customers.

As Software Development Manager, this position will see you be the direct line manager to the Developers and you will report into the Head of Development and work together to create great solutions. Although on the management side, this role still requires you to be hands on sometimes with the coding side however the programming language you specialise in an be C#, JavaScript or even Python.

You would be joining and managing a cloud mature team, mainly working with Azure. The team use various frameworks, tools and languages which are built around a microservice architecture, and everyone is given the freedom to use the right technology for the job which is the beauty of IT

As mentioned you will still be very hands on in your day to day but you will make business decisions and manage projects to ensure the best delivery possible. You will support with the ongoing development of the team and so coaching and mentoring will play a part as will future recruitment for the team.

A snapshot of the package :
