The Head of Development will play key part of the Mirriad leadership team and will work alongside the CTO, day-to-day, implementing and devising technical development and infrastructure strategy.

This is an opportunity to lead an Engineering Function, fully aligned with our commercial goals, comprising of multiple empowered, cross-functional development teams, along with DevOps and Data Engineering SMEs.

You will be a trusted partner/advisor to the business and the Product team, interrogating the roadmap and other decision making, to ensure that Engineering considerations are fully represented. Your teams are also the ultimate escalation resource for the Support Team, identifying platform issues and providing fixes.

If you care passionately about creating a great culture and environment for your engineers, then this is a real chance to make an impact. You have likely been in their shoes and have a strong sense of what 'good' looks and feels like. You will nurture your direct reports, giving them the support, tools and space to deliver and to grow.

If you would like to be part of an AIM listed, well-funded, market leading, international Adtech company, with a clear vision for scale and reach, then look no further.
