We are now looking for a Head of Apps, leading the development of our ads-driven experiences TV4 Play and TV4.se, across the IOS and Android ecosystems. If you are interested in taking the next step in your career and working with digital entertainment products with high volume and great potential, this is your chance!
Is this your next opportunity?
You will lead a skilled team of developers creating beautiful ad-driven experiences across the IOS and Android-based ecosystems. Many of our users are enjoying our content through their Apple or Android devices. Your team works with the latest technology and with all screen sizes; from mobile to the living-room TV. Since we deeply care about the user experience, we believe that you do too. As Head of Apps, you will be responsible for the technical development and end-user experience through the apps under your team’s wings.
In the role of a Head of Apps, you will be responsible for:
Setting and communicating the priorities, together with stakeholders
Balancing effort spent across product improvements, customer-facing issues, and technical debt
Establishing in-team and cross-team ways of working with agile development processes
The operational fitness and the relevant KPIs
Owning the technical roadmap and encouraging People development and team well-being
Staffing and recruiting
You can see the big picture, anticipate the problem together with the team or individually and solve it effectively with an analytical mindset.
You are result-oriented, should be able to plan and achieve goals and continuously seek ways to establish credibility and trust, and influence others to develop new relationships or strengthen existing ones.
Humbleness, the ability to share, teach and learn from others, and flexibility are important to us. In practice, this means that your genuine interest to try new tools, languages, and tech together with a team is essential.
We value your curiosity and your eagerness to learn.
To be successful in this role, we believe that you have several years of experience in a similar role, where you have a proven track record of leading DevOps teams. You thrive in a fast-paced and agile setting, and you are laser-focused on providing the best possible end-user experience. You make sure that the people working with you are happy, growing as professionals, and know what they are doing, and why.
Additionally, we believe that you have a strong, and relevant, technical background to be able to credibly give your team a technical direction. You are the conductor of the orchestra. You will rely on your team for deeper technical knowledge and expertise, but you are versed enough to be able to set a high-level technical strategy. Perhaps you have been a developer before stepping into engineering management?
Has held engineering management positions at relevant high-profile media or eCommerce service(s)
A background as a senior developer, tech lead, or similar, and has good insight into the IOS and/or Android ecosystems, and related technologies
