Creative Development Lead

Creative Agency

      Are you a creative and highly tech-savvy professional who enjoys helping others? Do you have solid experience as a front-end developer and do you like to manage a team? If yes, then you’re the Creative Development Lead our client is looking for!

       As a Creative Development Lead you are part of the DCO (Dynamic Creative Optimization) team where you deliver a crucial contribution to setting-up the best-in-class DCO campaigns together with your clients. Our client is a young, ambitious and fast growing organization where flexibility, commitment and quality are highly valued. They are here to globally change digital advertising into personal storytelling.

      So what does it mean to work as a Creative Development Lead in our client’s  team?

      They are working with the A-brands in the world like Ford, Uber, Pfizer, Mars, etc. They recieve briefs from clients all over the world, daily.

      DCO is a craft where you really need to understand the brand, but also the wishes of the consumer. As a team lead you lead a team of creative developers and you help them with their personal and substantive development.

      You manage the team, guarantee planning and stimulate innovation from within the team. You do this as a “cooperating foreman”; you work alongside the other developers and you take responsibility for development work for one or a number of our customers.

      GSAP and jQuery have no secrets for you, but you also know how to come up with your own ‘hacks’ to blow the client’s customers away. They have a dedicated agile mindset: the digital advertising market is dynamic and fast-growing; it is not easy to plan too far ahead. They work with sprints of one week.

      Key Responsibilities:

      • Responsible for the growth of the creative developers
      • Have recurring development/coaching sessions with the creative developers
      • Ensuring team happiness
      • Raise the bar on creative coding

      Our client is looking for some who wants to challenge the current status quo. Someone who wants to dive into the future, build state-of-the-art code and most importantly, make their clients happy.

      Do you like a challenge, and do you have the skillset that can make their team even stronger?

      Skills set required:

        • You are a front-end developer with at least 5 years of experience

        • You can work accurately, but also know how to bend rules when necessary

        • You have good people skills, experience in managing a team is a big plus

        • Fluent English in speaking and writing

        • Preferable: knowledge of DCO (not mandatory)

        If this is you, we would love to register you with Wighthall Collective and invite you to submit your details.
