  • Demonstrated experience coaching, mentoring, and supporting teams to adopt new practices.

  • You will be able to build and maintain effective and constructive relationships with your team and internal stakeholders.
  • A solid understanding and appreciation of technical engineering best practices (test driven development, continuous integration, scalability, security, DevOps, etc.).
  • You’ll value design based on iteration, and real customer feedback.
  • You’ll be able to maximize flow for developers, optimising the team for high performance.
  • You’ll have a proven track record of taking ownership of problems and being accountable.
