IntaPeople are currently supporting a globally recognised company who require an experienced software development lead to join and lead one of their many cross functional agile teams. This is an important leadership position within the development team, and you’ll be responsible for the team’s delivery against a specific project whilst being directly responsible for a team of roughly 4-8 members.

The role is predominantly leadership and ensuring good development process/success, with opportunity to step in and get hands on when required to provide good technical direction and mentorship.
