What you will be doing:

  • You will be reporting to the Head of Engineering and working as part of a triad with a product manager and a designer to lead a cross-functional squad consisting of engineering, product and design.
  • Line manage a team of cross functional engineers taking ownership of hiring & onboarding, and actively driving their personal growth & development.
  • Hold the whole squad to account for execution and delivery of value to users and partners, ensuring continual improvement of your squad’s effectiveness.

  • Expert understanding of modern agile practices to drive outcomes and outputs, with a continuous improvement mindset.
  • An iterative and experimentation mindset to be able to optimise outcomes
