About the job
It has been said that the average job seeker spends approximately 90 seconds reading a job ad before either pressing Next or Apply. This is likely due to the mobilefirst nature of society, but regardless, I wanted to try and beat the clock by crafting something short, sweet and snappy.
Here it goes...
I have partnered up with a Global Enterprise in the Cheshire area who are looking to supplment their Technology Leadership function by adding an experienced Mobile Engineering Manager. The role is newly released and the core focus of the role will involve leading a team of Mobile Engineers (iOS, Android) and Architects on a number of highly visible businesscritical platforms.
These platforms in question are a mix of legacy and greenfield technologies and service millions (and millions) of their customers worldwide. You will essentially oversee the full development lifecycle, getting involved in product development, architectural strategy, governance and stakeholder management.
As you can probably imagine, this role covers a number of key areas and responsibilities. So rather than simply regurgitating the job description, I wanted to point out a few key requirements for this role following my conversation with the Hiring Manager... here goes nothing:
Stakeholder Management A key focus of this role will involve working with numerous stakeholders, both technical and nontechnical, throughout the duration of your role. You will be working with everyone from Graduate/Junior Engineers to CLevel Directors and will be expected to effectively manage stakeholder expectations at all times. You will be a figurehead for this function so a track record working with key stakeholders and excellent communciation skills are crucial.
Processes & Methodologies As the Mobile Application Development Manager, one of the core components of your role will be ensuring a qualityfirst approach to product development. You will be expected to drive home the use of engineering standards and development best practice, and wider knowledge of processes such as Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and DevOps would be an additional bonus. As with all organisations, they are on an Agile journey so experience with Agile/Scrum would be an additional benefit.
Line Management & Leadership Finally, you must be able to demonstrate genuine leadership skills and a track record managing diverse teams of Developers/Engineers/Testers/Architects. Your role will involve motivating and inspiring a team of talented professionals (OK, that did admittedly sound cheesy) and they are keen to hire somebody with a genuine passion for technology and leadership. Leadership is not for everyone, so somebody who actually enjoys improving others would be a great fit!
In return for all of the above (and maybe even more...), you will be rewarded with a competitive base salary between £60,000 £80,000 alongside an annual bonus, noncontributory pension (10%) and private healthcare. On top of that, you will be given the opportunity to work from home if required.
So there you have it... an engaging job ad.
The question is... do you want to find out more?
If the answer is a resounding yes... give me a call!
