We are working with a pioneering technology start-up, who are looking for a Team Lead to join their Delivery team based in their Birmingham office. It is a very exciting time to join this small yet leading-edge company as they are in a real growth phase and for the right person it is a fantastic opportunity to join a passionate team of tech-sector professionals.

Our Client

This start-up is using its own technology to deliver innovation projects internationally for enterprise-level clients. In addition to a very exciting product, they are based in a lovely office space in the heart of Birmingham nearby one of the main train stations.

They are a truly passionate and forward-thinking bunch of people, making innovation happen in a short space of time for some large-scale businesses. If you have an interest and passion for technology and digital innovation, this opportunity would be right up your street. Our client is very much a people-centric, dynamic young business where there is a real opportunity to grow with the business, and we are looking for a like-minded team leader to join them.

In addition to their quarterly socials, Friday lunch is provided and there is also plenty of biscuits and fruit in the office! The role also comes with 25 days holiday (+ Bank Holidays). When you start, you will be given a budget to buy your preferred kit, a work mobile phone and headphones. Other perks include a hardware scheme and bike to work scheme.

The Role

This role is heading up the Web Delivery team, looking after a team of three Web Developers; managing, mentoring, motivating and growing that team.

You will be responsible for your team's performance and output, and for recruiting into that team. You are also managing all projects for that team from the specification, including client calls, through to maintenance, planning and overseeing sprints, identifying and addressing any problems. You are taking the ownership of any projects coming into the delivery team and it is your task to make sure the experiences are delivered to budget, on time and to spec.

Whilst your day to day doesn't necessarily involve a great deal of hands-on build, we are looking for a Web Development Team Lead with a technical background for this role. You will have experience with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and if you have experience with automated testing, and you have used node.JS, SQL, Go in the past, that would be a bonus, however, it is not essential.

About You

We are looking for a pragmatic Team Lead; someone who has already got experience working in a similar role, ideally in an agency environment. It is essential that you are a great communicator and have good people skills and you will need to have hands-on coding experience, so a technical background is a must. You are a great team leader and good with clients, and you will also have managed digital delivery projects in your past role as part of your day-to-day.
