What you'll be doing:
- Hiring, retaining, mentoring and developing the team.

- Participating in code reviews for the various delivery teams, to ensure we continue to produce high quality, maintainable code with appropriate documentation.

Your qualifications & experience:
- You'll have experience building self-managing engineering teams, and understand how to nurture a culture of continuous improvement.
- You'll have a strong background in full-stack software engineering, ideally with a front-end focus.
- You'll be able to clearly articulate what good looks like in software engineering, and describe how you help teams achieve it.
- You'll have strong hands on engineering skills in some or all of our core technical stack: TypeScript/Node.js/React/Kubernetes/AWS.

If you have the relevant experience and this role looks of interest to you, please apply for more details.
