My client, a data driven sports marketing agency, is looking for a sports loving Head of Data Development to drive the next stage of their technical growth.  The development team, working in SQL, within a Microsoft Tech Stack, provides a business-critical service, processing and managing commercial data from sports rights holders to support the delivery of insight, marketing communications and strategy consultancy.

The Head of Data Development, is a new position within this team, a leadership function created to build on the existing capability of the team and help to design their future technical product as the company continues to expand its product offering and serviced geographies.

The successful candidate will have a background working within a leading, progressive technical environment.  They will be able to demonstrate evidence of solutions architecture or managing business change projects with multiple stakeholders.  They will have the vision and appetite to implement change, with the relentlessness to drive it through in a fast-paced environment. 

This is a role for an exceptional communicator who can juggle technical excellence with commercial pragmatism; somebody who can blue-sky think but follow-through and deliver. 

The Head of Data Development will also be responsible for the career progression and line management of the team of Developers, helping them to grow with the company. 

Candidates who have some understanding of SQL or similar languages, who have worked with APIs and in data development environments will be viewed favourably. 

A passion for sports is a must.
