We are seeking an agile delivery manager to help coordinate our busy software development process.

  • Make sure everyone knows what they should be doing, and has the resources they need to do it
  • Keep track of ongoing development projects, and progress
  • Help triage and prioritise urgent customer requests
  • Communicate development and project status to the wider team
  • For each project, clearly define a goal and plan/deadline, and keep things on track

About us
