Head of Development - Integrated B2B Agency

North Buckinghamshire

£60k - £70k - NP667

This well-regarded, 35 strong agency, has been around since 2002 operating in the B2B tech space. In order to challenge the agencies at the top table they've decided they require a Head of Development to drive their digital department forward.

As the Head of Development, you'll be the digital face of the agency, leading and inspiring clients, devising strategies for ground-breaking projects, conceiving cutting edge ideas, and getting the most out of your team.

Due to the nature of the team, you'd still be required to be hands-on at times, often leading from the front as a role model. You'll be a problem solver, have a calm head on your shoulders, have a strong commercial focus and be able to manage the workflow through your team.

Desirable Skills:

  • Advanced PHP, HTML, CSS, MySQL, JavaScript knowledge
  • Strong LAMP stack knowledge and experience
  • Experience of Content Management Systems such as Drupal/WordPress
  • Solid experience overseeing medium to large scale digital projects
  • Experience of solutions design and/or system architecture
  • Solid understanding of 'Object Oriented' programming and MVC frameworks such as Zend/Symfony2
  • Proficient knowledge of front-end performance testing and optimization techniques
  • Strong understanding of email and MA platforms including Eloqua, Marketo, Hubspot and Pardot
  • Thorough understanding of performance and scalability
  • Experience of team management and motivation

Aside from the salary on offer of up to £80k, there's also plenty of parking, 22 days' holiday (rising to a maximum of 25 with service), monthly company lunches, free eye tests, fizzy drinks fridge, Nespresso coffee machine, discretionary WFH days, flexible working (within reason) monthly socials, and a 3% pension, and of course, the chance to be part of something amazing.

Please ensure you send over a detailed CV and a folio brimming links to cutting edge projects you've been involved with.
