Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. This is an exciting time to be joining the Digital Data Services team at Camden, and this is the senior tech role within our newly formed Digital Products and Services team.
The Tech Lead is a hands-on role and will set the standard for our technical product development at Camden working with the design, delivery and product management teams to deliver high value and quality work. This role, with the support of two full-stack developers, will think and work creatively to create technical solutions to improve and work with existing platforms and services as well as develop new prototypes and products when needed. This role will play a leading part in developing our technical standards, keeping abreast of emerging technologies whilst building and maintaining a knowledge of the applications, platforms and capabilities that are already in house.
You are a passionate, experienced developer able to create products from scratch and pragmatically work with existing platforms to transform services. You’ll thrive when using agile methods and enjoy championing and establishing best practices in terms of process and standards. You will have experience of working with design systems and always champion user needs, evaluating proposed solutions and prototypes against their ability to serve the citizens of Camden. If you haven’t had formal management experience yet, you will have strong experience of mentoring and peer to peer coaching. You will have great judgment and insight from your own dev work which will have included specialism in front and back-end development/ coding and be comfortable to work alongside DevOps teams to create the best set up and environments for your team. You will have demonstratable experience of building A/AA complaint products. Ideally with an interest and commitment to creating public value, you will have developed products and services across platforms for diverse audiences - and you'll be as happy to code alongside colleagues as create a technical roadmap if that’s what’s needed.
This role is subject to a DBS Enhanced Check.
