Graze may not seem it at first glance but we are very much a tech company! We are a fast-growth, online food company based on a home grown and highly scalable technology platform. Everything from our website, through to our customer service tools and dispatch systems, are built in PHP/MySQL and served through Amazon Web Services or locally in our office here in Richmond. 

 Graze was started by 7 friends who all share a passion for food. We deliver tasty, natural snacks through the post in the UK and since our official launch in January 2009 we have grown massively.   We currently employ approx. 250 people split between our head office in Richmond, our factory in Feltham and our new state of the art facility we are building.  We have big plans to build on this success and are currently going through a very exciting period of expansion.

 What the web development team manager will be responsible for

 There are 3 key facets to the role:

  • Effective development and management of the team (varying levels of experience and skill sets) to ensure they realise their full potential and add as much value to graze as possible whilst achieving their own career goals.  
  • Ensure we have a clear understanding of  the resource we have to deliver as effectively as possible work pipelines.  
  • Introduce clear project management (agile) methodologies.  

We really value our people and have created this role lead and manage designated members of the technology team to ensure that projects/workload is effectively managed and skill sets within the team are fully utilised.  This role will also be involved in the technical speccing sessions and act as an escalation point for any technical issues so experience of coding in PHP would be advantageous.  

 

What we’re looking for in our web development team manager - technology

  • The ideal candidate will have come from a web development background and will have experience working in a small to medium size company which is tech focused.  Exposure to a start-up environment would be advantageous.  
  • Although this role will not be coding/technical on a day to day basis you will act as an escalation point for issues as well as scoping projects and will have experience in both coding (preferably PHP) and project management  (preferably agile, waterfall).
  • Must be an established team leader with proven skills in developing talent.    
  • Readiness to work in an extremely fast paced and dynamic growth business
  • Strong communication skills both written and verbal.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills.
