The Opportunity

This is an opportunity for an experienced software leader to support the implementation of an exciting change programme and lead the production test software team to success on a number of high profile deliveries. This is a key role supporting the delivery of the entire MBDA UK product range.
The Role
  • Based at our Stevenage facility, you will be providing leadership and direction to four software development teams (three at Stevenage and one at Bolton) delivering production test software supporting the whole of the MBDA UK product range;
  • You will be working together with the department leadership team to define future capability requirements and support the implementation of change initiatives;
  • You will be providing oversight for current software projects to ensure they are delivered to time, cost and quality. Using your own experience you will be a role model for good engineering management practice and support the team to resolve project issues and realise opportunities to improve;
  • You will be responsible for developing proposals to support future project requirements integrating reuse, lessons learnt and new techniques where appropriate;
  • You will be developing and maintaining strong collaborative relationships with senior project stakeholders in other engineering disciplines, MBDA national companies and project management in order to ensure software activities integrate smoothly with wider project milestones.
What’s in it for you?
  • The opportunity to learn about the whole MBDA product range;
  • Develop and grow your career in a company with expanding horizons. You’ll get lots of experience in a more senior role if you join us on this journey;
  • Be a part of a change initiative where changes you make will have a perceptible positive impact on the development of your team;
  • The opportunity to travel. We work closely with colleagues across UK and French sites.
What’s great about the team?
Test solutions are delivered by a multi-disciplined dynamic, focussed and agile team of about 100 engineers specialising in all aspects of test solution design, including hardware, software and embedded real-time systems.  These skills are co-located providing an atmosphere of supportive cooperation and interdependence whose strengths are well placed to face the challenges of the future.
What are we looking for?
  • A collaborative and energetic individual who will be an inspiring leader for the production test software team;
  • Experience in engineering management roles where there is a significant software content;
  • Experience with line management of teams;
  • An understanding of product testing environments and techniques;
What would you get?
  • Competitive salary, flexible working, paid overtime (subject to level), a comprehensive pension scheme, employee funded voluntary private healthcare, sporting activities, fantastic site facilities, bonus schemes (subject to level) and superb learning and development opportunities.
