Summary of Role

A Systems Lead / Programme Engineering Manager is required for the Defence Targeting Toolset (DTT) Programme. Working within the Command and Control section of the Cyber & Intelligence Business Unit, the DTT Programme is comprised of two Agile projects; DTT and IMT.

DTT provides users with a single source-of-truth in collation and management of targeting data, including consumption of data from external services, distribution and guaranteeing consistency; thorough audit capability of decision making; automatic generation of reports; and an increase in operational tempo.

IMT provides a holistic ISR enterprise approach and ability to leverage the full capacity of existing ISR capabilities to achieve better understanding. This capability reduces the issues associated with increased volume, velocity, and variety of data, to make the analysts’ task more manageable. The provision of intelligence requirements management (IRM) and collection management (CM) software fills the capability gap that will enable the current ISR and intelligence structures to provide the consistently high standard of multi-intelligence assessment.

DTT is an n-tier Rich Web Application, built on Service Oriented Architecture and comprising RESTful services. The programme operates within an Agile development framework from two prioritised backlogs, with daily stand-ups and regularly creating releasable builds.

Strategic responsibilities include:

  • Improving the medium/long term engineering capability of the DTT Team.
  • Management of the Systems Engineering Teams collective skills to deliver and monitor progress against the capability roadmap.
  • Managing interdependencies to ensure success of both projects.

The role also includes tactical responsibility for the overall leadership of the Systems Engineering Team within the DTT Programme including assignment of tasks and monitoring of progress. Responsibilities of the Systems Team you will be managing include :
