Software Development Manager

Are you a manager, who’s enthusiastic about developing teams and people, in a dynamic and vibrant environment? And do you want to combine your people skills with your knowledge of technology? In that case: we are looking for you!

What will you be doing?

As Software Development Manager you have a leadership role within our IT department. You are a people manager and as such you support and facilitate the work of our multidisciplinary development teams. You are responsible for coaching, hiring, guiding and growing your teams and individual employees. In this respect, we highly value providing everyone open and honest feedback, encouraging growth and identifying talent within your teams. 

Together with your teams you are involved in drawing up the IT roadmap and the OKR’s (Objectives and Key-Results) for your department, you are responsible for safeguarding the progress, detecting possible bottlenecks and impediments, and acting upon this. You advise and mentor colleagues proactively on technical and organizational aspects. You prioritize, make choices and you monitor the quality of your teams’ work. You initiate projects and look for consensus and broad support to realize and implement these projects. Also, you assure an optimal collaboration between the IT department and the business and act as an Agile coach within the organisation. You take place in the IT-management team and you are accountable to the board.



What do you need for that?

You are an ambitious technology leader, with an open and crisp way of communicating. Besides that you are entrepreneurial and a driving force; someone who gets things done. You are pragmatic, technically well versed and you understand that with every technical decision a business requirement needs to be fulfilled. In this matter, you are able to translate technical trends into concrete IT solutions, and you actively look for cooperation with your colleagues.

You are an inspirer and motivator and you actively stimulate the further personal and professional development of your team members. Also, you are a person who is continually looking for new ideas and technologies and is focused on renewal and innovation. Drive, result-oriented, flexibility and creativity are traits that describe you. 



In addition you have:

  • a bachelor or master degree in technical business administration, computer science or similar;
  • experience, preferably as a team leader, scrum master or manager within the IT-industry;
  • experience with working in an environment where scalability and performance are of high importance;
  • knowledge of modern software development practices;
  • experience working in an agile environment;
  • excellent communication skills in English;
  • several years of experience within a SaaS environment (plus);
  • experience with micro services architecture (plus);
  • communication skills in Dutch (plus).

Why work at Coosto?

Because you will work in a stimulating environment, full of technical challenges in a team of cool and clever colleagues. We have a strong focus on the agile way of working. Correspondingly, we work in short sprints, and go live faster every time with continuous delivery and test automation, giving you more honor of your work as it is immediately used by our clients.

We pay much attention to the further development of your talent: we have a training budget with which you can follow relevant courses and training to grow within the organization. You will work from a beautiful office in Eindhoven, right beside the train station, with a wide view on the dynamics of the city. Of course you will get a good salary and an attractive package of benefits.

Working in the office is less self-evident in this Corona period than before. Working more flexible and working from home is therefore definitely an option at Coosto.
