  • Manage day-to-day activities of the engineering team
  • Clear concise progress reports and feedback
  • Lead from the front, seeking excellence in all engineering disciplines 
  • Provide technical guidance and direction whilst being a hands-on resource
  • Responsible for feature deployment and the stability of the platform
  • Play a mentorship role, assisting others in their duties upon request and constantly promoting the growth of the teams’ professional skills
  • Development of a technical resource hub
  • Work in a geographically distributed environment and some travel (primarily in Europe)
  • Work with non-technical stakeholders within the business to understand and refine complex requirements
  • Handling multiple, competing priorities in a fast-paced environment
