Technical Leadership

  • Provide technical leadership to the team through collaboration sessions and knowledge-sharing initiatives.
  • Engage regularly with software architects in order to ensure the development within the team is according to architectural guidelines.
  • Work with other developers, designers/analysts, and architects to make sure that the solutions meet application requirements and performance goals.
  • Ensure checked-in code is reviewed to ensure standards are met and the code base is sound.
  • Ensure that all technical solutions that are rolled out consider compatibility with other environments and dependencies; have a high usability factor; are reliable to reduce downtime and perform at maximum efficiency during peak periods of usage; consider security at its highest level (third party attacks, data protection etc.).
  • Drive the adoption of processes within the Team, which consider and meet the expectations of technical throughput rates and responses; processing times; effective resource utilisation during operation and where the system or solution ensures maximum operational capacity requirements are met.


Quality of Software Implementation

  • Ensure rigorous testing of any solution before deployment and create standards and processes within the team to align with these.
  • Ensure the delivery of a complete and technically appropriate solution, which covers all the agreed specified tasks and user objectives and has been tested thoroughly.
  • Ensure relevant documentation is provided to Support Teams to reduce development support load.
  • Where possible, work to develop and implement a quality mechanism for the solution to analyse its own faults and provide reports prior to a critical failure.
  • Develop the solution in a manner, which supports modification for future developers thereby reducing the number of defects or negatively affecting system quality.


Initiative and Innovation

  • Implement improved processes that have a positive effect on the Team’s performance and company bottom line.
  • Ensure technical problems and opportunities are anticipated and dealt with immediately considering any technical dependencies.
  • Take an active involvement in problem resolution and, where necessary, work after hours to ensure that problems are resolved.
  • Show foresight to prevent errors or delays in projects.
  • Demonstrate initiative by understanding, acquiring and implementing new knowledge and skills both within the Team and to the wider group.
  • Incorporate new abilities into the day-to-day operational activities to improve the performance of products and systems.
  • Ensure techniques, technologies, tools and processes used are in line with industry best practices.


Knowledge Share

    • Identify Team Members requiring specific knowledge, skill or understanding and seek ways to upskill these Team Members through coaching and mentorship.
    • Verify that the knowledge has been imparted successfully and if not, take steps to rectify gaps in knowledge share.
