In 2003, UsedEverywhere.com started out with a simple purpose: to keep useful items out of the landfill. This continues to be our principle pursuit as we encourage people to buy and sell used goods safely online and now, with the introduction of #UsedHelps, we offer fundraising support to local and national charitable organizations.
As well as our commitment to the environment, UsedEverywhere.com endeavours to be a leader in the local technology sector with a pledge to enhance the user-experience of a “simple” buy and sell site. This, combined with hyper-local engagement in communities both on and offline, results in our innovative approach to e-commerce.
Why we love working here
Reports to: President
The Head of Development is responsible for leading a team of software developers to deliver exceptional business value in a software product, leveraging the Scrum development process and the best of modern lean and agile development practices.
This is a senior position and the successful candidate will join the company’s management team, shaping the future development of the company’s offerings.
The position requires two complementary skill sets – the technical credentials needed to lead a team of talented web application developers, plus authentic practical and soft skills needed to run the Scrum process as Product Owner.
The role is ideal for a senior developer or team lead who wants to transition to Product Ownership, or for an existing Product Owner who has a solid technical background and has shipped successful products on their path to the Product Owner position.
As the Head of Development, the successful candidate will be responsible for providing technical leadership to the team, mentoring them in best practices in coding, technology choices, modern development processes and architecture, environment and development tool choices.
The Product Owner component of the role is essential to the Scrum development process – responsible for bridging between the business priorities and the day-to-day work of the development team.
The successful candidate will also have an understanding of modern quality management including continuous QA, practical implementation of automated testing, along with continuous integration and continuous delivery.
Ultimately, this dual role requires managing development resources to ensure the successful completion of projects.
Great to have:
