personal specification

We're looking for a candidate with the skills we need, who is also flexible enough to fit into the company and grow with us. We need someone with strong ethical values, who thrives on producing results, can adapt to new challenges, and enjoys learning along the way. You will need to be able to work effectively in a team-based agile environment, as well as playing a part in the growth and direction of the company as a whole.

To be successful in this role you’ll:

  • Lead a number of exciting projects. You will be the key liaison between internal and external/client teams.
  • Help manage our projects internally and externally, ensuring we keep on track with project deliverables and roadmap. We generally use Agile methodologies (e.g. Scrum) but this flexes for different projects and clients.
  • Act as Product Owner; really understand the products we develop and work with the client and development team to create great user experiences.
  • Help unblock and motivate team members by solving challenges with clients, and ensure the team then carries out the strategy and delivers results.
  • Identify new opportunities with existing clients and support our Business Development team in revenue pipeline reporting, meeting targets and growing the business.
  • Manage a number of key client relationships, from on-boarding through to project go-live. You will be responsible for maintaining and developing the client relationship, keeping them up to date with project status and partnering with them to document new product requirements and manage expectations.
  • Help us run the business more effectively. This may involve looking at internal processes, collecting metrics, helping with testing and Quality Assurance. 
  • Be someone with strong ethical values, who thrives on producing results, can adapt to new challenges, and enjoys learning along the way.
  • The role will be varied and you will need excellent prioritisation and decision making skills.
  • Be able to work effectively in a team-based, agile environment, as well as play a part in the growth and direction of the company as a whole, helping set company strategy. Being able to collaborate with the team and clients is vital.
  • Have a positive attitude, bringing energy and enthusiasm to our team.
  • Reflect and champion our Brand Values of Collaborative, Friendly, Expert.

It is not imperative to be a hands-on technical expert but we would expect you to understand high level technical concepts immediately and be able to drill into details when required (with help).

Core Skills:

Below is a list of core skills we consider key. We are not expecting any candidate to have experience or knowledge in all of these areas. What we are looking for is the ability and desire to learn the areas you don't have, when and if required.

If you only have some of the below, you should still apply!

  • Highly organised.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Experience of working on client facing projects and liaising directly with clients.
  • Standout presentation skills (in person and video conferencing).
  • The ability to quickly pick up new concepts or businesses and simplify them.
  • Project management experience with a love of systems and processes.
  • Client relationship/Account Management and Development experience.
  • Good IT skills and able to write clear presentations, documents and reports.
  • Technical confidence (ie. can you explain the difference between a web app, a mobile app and a hybrid app? What is AWS?).
  • Agile methodologies – primarily Scrum (Scrum Master experience would be useful).
  • Business analysis.
  • User experience analysis, design and prototyping.
  • QA and software testing.
  • Bug reporting.

what are we offering you?

  • A competitive salary depending on your experience.
  • A chance to join a growing company and help drive DabApps as we expand.
  • 25 days paid holiday – plus paid bank holidays.

  • Pension scheme (after qualifying period).
  • Regular training and conference opportunities – in-house and external.
  • A great working location in the heart of Brighton + remote options.

This is a hybrid remote and office-based role – applicants should be based in and around Brighton. We also have a flexible 'work from anywhere' policy so you can make the most of time away from home, with family and friends.
