\nJob Title:          Software Development Manager\n\nLocation:          Home-working, although frequent travel is required (UK and international).\n\nHours of work:  37.5 hours per week  \n\nReporting to:Head of R&D\n\nAt ByBox, our software solutions and smart locker technologies are keeping our UK distribution, warehousing and technical services divisions working 24/7, 365 days a year, minimising delivery times and inventory levels. As the market leader for field service supply chain solutions in the UK, we rely on our software team to innovate and build new solutions, as well as developing our existing systems, keeping ByBox ahead of the competition and reinforcing our position as a successful innovator within UK field support.\n\nWe are also successfully re-positioning ourselves as a global technology provider for locker delivery solutions, predominantly focussing on the field service supply chain. This is an exciting departure from the previous market position as a distribution company with a strong technology capability. This change of position is allowing us to operate a different revenue model, through software subscriptions and licensing, rather than through logistics services.\n\nTo support this, the software development department must deliver the correct short and long-term projects to enable that re-positioning.\n\nThe Position\n\nAs a Software Development Manager at ByBox your duties include:\n\nLeadership. Lead, motivate and influence a team of expert software developers to deliver value for ByBox while ensuring software quality. Ensure the developers have all the tools they need, be it hardware, software, or training, to do their job to the required level.\n\nRelationships. Work closely with colleagues in the software development department to ensure the development team are aligned to business priorities and strategy. Develop strong relationships with internal customers to understand their perspectives and to positively influence the reputation of software development.\n\nRecruitment. Take a highly pro-active role in the recruitment of software developers. Work with the ByBox recruitment team to ensure the highest-quality candidates are identified and engaged effectively. Also, engage with external organisations to seek the right talent and to promote ByBox as a forward-thinking employer of software developers.\n\nResourcing. Work closely with the Business Interface Manager and Project Managers to ensure the right developers are available at the right time for delivering the Software Development Pipeline. Where necessary, own the relationship with outsourced-development teams and the process for bringing on additional software developers on a temporary-contract basis. Ensure the software developers are appropriately assigned to projects, and given opportunities to work on other projects as required and fairly. Respond to business needs through the appropriate deployment of developers, while protecting long-term contingency in capacity so we can quickly respond to opportunities.\n\nPeople development. Develop and retain our people by fostering a positive environment for personal and professional development through continuously engaging with developers, appraisals, objectives and training plans. Provide a platform for developers to raise concerns or offer new ideas, support one another, and resolve conflict, and where necessary manage performance or disciplinary concerns. Promote and develop the key values from our Ways of Working, including innovation, trust and openness.\n\nContinuous improvement. Drive continuous improvement and adoption of best practices within the software development team to optimize the performance of the team. By pragmatically weighing the business need for delivery with the need to keeping technology current, help to ensure the team is producing the right solution at the right time.\n\nDocumentation. Define and own the good practice for technical documentation, demos, and handovers amongst the team for the benefit of colleagues, and customers requiring technical API documentation.\n\nTechnology. Support your team in ensuring they are abreast of the latest developments in technologies, and they have the tools they need to adopt appropriate technology. Be familiar with the current technologies in your team, and be aware of upcoming technologies. You do not need to be the technology expert within your team, but must be able to articulate the pros and cons of competing technologies and justify investment to senior management.\n\nQuality Assurance. Work very closely with the Quality Assurance Manager to ensure QA practices are aligned across the department, particularly in the adoption of Test Automation and the Test Automation Engineers reporting to the QA Manager.\n\nWorkload. Manage your own objectives and priorities effectively and without close supervision. Although you won't be directly managing the work of your direct reports (this will be done by Software Project Managers), a good awareness of their current work will be crucial in making good decisions. You will be able to escalate issues to the Head of R&D and will also be required to make recommendations. You will also be involved in the technology strategy by supporting the Head of R&D with departmental planning activities as required.\n\nThe Person\n\nThe Software Development manager does not need to be currently active in writing code, and the role does not entail any code-writing, but there is room for a successful candidate to define the level of their technical involvement, based on their knowledge. The ideal candidate will:\n\n\n* Have a passion for Technology and good understanding of trends in Software Development.\n\n* Have a strong technical foundation in Software Development.\n\n* Embrace a cross-functional approach to team management and appreciate the challenges therein.\n\n* Foster an open, collaborative environment, and balance people's needs with company objectives.\n\n* Appreciate the challenges of managing a team of home-workers, and home-working yourself.\n\n* Understand how to lead and manage a team of highly talented, distributed Software Developers.\n\n\n\n\nEssential qualifications and experience:\n\n\n* Team Leadership or Management, particularly teams of Software Developers\n\n* Technical background.\n\n* Worked with home-working or distributed teams.\n\n* Management of outsourced development partners.\n\n* Excellent command of written and spoken English.\n\n\n\n\nDesirable qualifications and experience:\n\n\n* Experience working in a team of primarily .Net & JavaScript developers.\n\n* Experience in the logistics industry.\n\n* Knowledge of the ByBox domain\n\n\n\n\n#Location\nšŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ UK-only

ByBox have done this using its world-beating electronic-box technology and in-house developed software platform to provide the most sophisticated field service solution in the UK. The ByBox solution disrupted the market by increasing service while reducing cost for customers, so that it now dominates the UK market.\n\n\nByBox is now taking its technology globally by building on its already impressive software development team to build a technology team capable of delivering electronic box-based solutions to a global market. The ByBox suite of mobile, web, and client-based applications cover:\n\n\n\n* Bluetooth electronic lockers\n\n* Multi-tenanted customer web-applications\n\n* End-user mobile applications\n\n* Logistics support & label/barcode generation\n\n* Warehouse management systems\n\n* Customer-facing order portals\n\n* Customer and 3rd-party EDI\n\n* In-field mobile device and scanner solutions\n\n* Automated testing facilities\n\n* And much, much more\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Position\n\n\nByBox requires an experienced, enthusiastic, and highly motivated Software professional to take on the new role of Technical Content Author at ByBox, in the Software Development department. As the first person to fill this role you will be expected to bring your experience to the team and influence how technical documentation fits into the Software Development Lifecycle in ByBox.\n\n\nUntil now technical documentation at ByBox has largely been in the form of written documents, been completed by a range of people, and of a mixed quality, but as our team and Software Portfolio grows the need for high-quality technical content has also increased, and deserves dedicated attention from a professional Technical Content Author. This is especially important now, as much of the documentation will be customer-focused; therefore, content must be designed and delivered with an emphasis on presentation, accuracy, clarity, and usability.\n\n\nWith the support of the development team (in particular the business analysts and system specialists) you will be responsible for owning and maintaining the software team's product catalogue/portfolio and producing user guides (including technical installation instructions), and content for the ByBox marketing team. Working closely with Product Owners you will produce professional documentation for our key products. You will also drive the adoption of the latest mediums for knowledge transfer, such as through e-learning tools, online video, and other techniques. The Software Development team will look to you for guidance on documentation strategy, techniques, templates, and media content. You will also have overall responsibility for guiding the structure and standards in our internal Knowledge Base Wiki.\n\n\nYour duties will include:\n\n\n* Own, develop and maintain the content of ByBox Software Product Catalogue/Portfolio, producing content suitable for both internal and external audiences.\n\n* Be involved from the early stages of projects to understand the solution, and to understand the documentation/training requirements of the end-users.\n\n* Produce appropriate technical content for the end-users of our software, including Users  Guides, technical installation instructions, and integration/API guides.\n\n* Understand the configuration and use-cases of the ByBox products to be self-reliant in producing appropriate content (e.g. screenshots, screencasts, videos etc.)\n\n* Drive the adoption of other techniques such as e-learning and online videos, or other media.\n\n* Guide the standardization of documentation and other content and help define our documentation strategy.\n\n* Gather feedback on the usability of content from internal and external customers, and regularly review content and processes to ensure best practices.\n\n* Work with technical team to make products easier to use and thus need fewer instructions.\n\n* Keep up to date with changing technologies, developments and trends in the industry, attending training courses as necessary.\n\n* Work closely with the ByBox Marketing team to produce suitable content for their Marketing material.\n\n\n\n\n\nYou will receive full domain training where necessary; and experts in all areas of existing systems will be on hand throughout projects™ lifetimes and beyond.\n\n\nByBox is opening a new 'Tech Hub' office in Oxford (opening 2018), and this role will be based from this office, which will be a key place for knowledge transfer, testing our products and utilising demo systems. However, we have a flexible working culture, and with mutual agreement you can spend a proportion of your time working from home. There will also be some travel to other sites in the UK, namely our facilities in Coventry and Milton Keynes. All technical team members are connected remotely and communication is fully established, effective and easy. Face to face meetings in any one of our offices can be arranged easily as and when required.\n\n\nAlthough rare, some out of hours working may be required as part of understanding the different ByBox domains (particularly operational).\n\n\nThe Person\n\n\nThe successful candidate will be an experienced technical author/writer with the following experience and qualities:\n\n\n\n* Background of working in Software Development teams creating software user documentation, user manuals, release notes, training courses / materials and other documents.\n\n* Outstanding written communication skills, with strong literacy, and a clear and concise writing style.\n\n* Creative, with a flair for turning technical subjects and jargon into easily understood content or training material.\n\n* Be a clear and confident communicator; able to interact effectively with a distributed team of other technical experts and senior representatives.\n\n* Passion and aptitude in technology and technical techniques, particularly content authoring tools.\n\n* Be enthusiastic and pro-active in learning the technologies and capabilities of ByBox’ existing software.\n\n* An exceptional eye for detail with a passion for accuracy.\n\n* Worked with both internal and external stakeholders to define suitable documentation requirements.\n\n* Be a clear and confident communicator; able to interact effectively with a distributed team of other technical experts and senior representatives.\n\n* Ability to lead and influence a variety of team members with the goal of fulfilling our documentation strategy.\n\n* Be self-motivated, positive, self-disciplined, reliable, trustful, honest and collaborative.\n\n* Capable of working effectively with minimal supervision.\n\n\n\n\n\nDesirable qualifications and experience:\n\n\n* Qualifications in English, Communications, Computer Science, or other relevant subjects.\n\n* Experience in the logistics industry, or knowledge of the ByBox domain.\n\n* Experience working with agile software development methodologies.\n\n\n\n\n\nApplication Process:\n\n Please apply in writing to the Recruitment Department including a covering letter and up to date CV\n\nNOTE:\n\nExternal candidates will be required to supply details of two business referees in senior positions, who will be contacted by the Company after the first interview.
