Development Team Lead
We're growing and looking to add a Development Team Lead to our London office. We’re looking for an experienced technical leader to support and grow our development team in London, while also continuing to be an individual contributor. Together we’ll build both great products and a great team.
As the leader of the development team, you’ll provide mentorship and support to 6-10 developers in London with one-on-ones and reviews. You'll also be working to grow the development team, our reputation in London, attracting great projects, and working inbound opportunities. You’ll work together with the rest of the thoughtbot London leadership team, and global thoughtbot leadership, to manage the business and success of the studio.
Alongside hands-on technical work, you'll be helping to support the London development team: working with team members on their professional development, hiring new people, and finding new projects. Along with the other Directors in London, you'll be responsible for profitability of the studio.
Very well-qualified candidates will also have experience with consulting, and have a proven track record of attracting potential customers.
This is a full-time position with a competitive salary, paid time off, pension eligibility, and private health insurance.
Our team works in a relaxed and educational environment to develop excellent products for our clients. We work a sustainable pace of 40 hours/week, consulting for clients four days/week. We also like to learn. Everything we do is predicated on having a great team and a culture of growing. We use the latest technologies and are always down to try new methods on both internal and client projects.
We pay 100% of expenses when you speak at conferences and 50% of the cost for attendees. We also pay 50% of all expenses for job-related training.
We offer 24 vacation days and 8 holidays. For new parents, we offer additional paid leave on top of your statutory rights.
