A growing Financial Services client of ours is looking for a key leader for their Enterprise Applications Development team and has engaged us exclusively to identify this Application Development Manager. We are looking a well-rounded senior level IT leader that will oversee application development activities and be responsible for new development and/or maintenance of software products, features, components and tools. The development environment is largely Microsoft .NET based on the business apps side and Wordpress for client-facing web apps. This role will direct both project and functional management efforts during the software development lifecycle and will involve collaboration with other development related functional areas such as architecture, product management and project management to ensure products meet high quality. This position will report directly to the CIO and have 5 direct reports, but there are plans to expand the team in the coming months and that will ultimately be at the discretion of the person in this Application Development Manager seat.
