HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT - INTEGRATION - API
We’re changing the world of work. We believe that business success is underpinned by the effectiveness of its people. So, we made it our mission to help millions of people have a great day at work – every day. With locations in practically every country, city, town and transport hub, and options ranging from an hour’s coworking to multi-year office space leases, we enable people and businesses to work where, when and how they want.
Technology in IWG
We’re focused on delivering seamless digital propositions which allow customers to instantly manage their requirements and position IWG as the “Digital First” workspace provider. As early adopters of the latest technologies - whether it be Artificial Intelligence, Office IoT, Data or Cloud Solutions - we create business value and are constantly striving to find new and improved ways to help our customers. Which is why we’re always on the look-out for intelligent, energetic, self-motivated, and curious individuals. We want to bring about a global workspace revolution and want you to help.
The engineering team in IWG is comprised by several practices (Business Analysis, Solution & Data Architecture, DevOps, Security as well as Product Development). The Development practice, in particular, is responsible for the roadmap for a product as well as its planning, developing, operating, maintaining and end-to-end costing.
We require an experienced Head of Development that blends a strong software development background with product delivery to further develop our Product Development practice.
The role will control our API landscape, from our API management portal till the internal gateway, in its entirety (delivery pods, technical lead, QA lead, delivery manager, DevOps and IT support capacity) to fully own all aspects of its delivery and shaping how our current API will evolve onto the new future of microservices. The role is also responsible for budgeting, team sizing and vendor management.
What you’ll need to succeed
We are looking for someone with a strong development track record (e.g., development, technical lead and/or solution architecture roles) that has transitioned into fully owning products, their roadmap and delivery for global companies. The ideal person would also have strong experience in systems integration, including event driven design and asynchronous communications. Candidates who have led and delivered initiatives to introduce stability around applications will be of interest, particularly in relation to high volume requests and multi-point integrations. Being able to manage both tactical changes in harmony with a clear strategic vision for the future is key.
