Main responsibilities

  • You will be responsible for scoping, planning and delivering world-class, scalable UI’s - a key member of agile project teams across a range of industries and markets.
  • You will be confident in your experience and have the ability to make key architectural decisions.
  • You will lead and manage on and off-shore colleagues to deliver agile sprints, uphold code quality with pull-requests and test-driven development, and take part in retrospectives to learn and improve from experience.
  • You will define and document technical architecture and approach, having excellent knowledge of back-end integration.

  • You will lead the technology presence in BB's ‘conversation to creation’ (C2C) sessions.
