We are looking for a Tech Lead Developer to join our award-winning team at evoke Mind+Matter to assist us creating meaningful experiences, driven by data and emotions to ultimately change behaviours, in both the UK and globally.

Every day we inspire people to change their behaviour and make better healthy decisions. From the food they eat, to the products they put on their skin, and from the medicines they take to the routines they adopt to prevent or manage long-term illness.

The Role:

  • Being the go-to for technology solutions within the agency
  • Representing the agency within our global group
  • Leading the development team and managing freelance resource
  • Managing large-scale digital projects from a technical perspective and overseeing the delivery of smaller projects
  • Technical project management, planning and developing budgets and SOW
  • Advocating and promoting new technology approaches and methodologies with clients and internal teams
  • Working with the wider group to develop existing processes, security and technical infrastructure
  • Generating and communicating creative ideas and technical solutions for new briefs
  • Developing prototypes or proofs-of-concept for pitches and proposals
  • Working closely with internal teams, including Experience, Creative and Account Management
