Vitamin London is a digital production and innovation studio that was established in 2011 to change industries for the better. We like to take equity in our products in order to build long term partnerships.

Vitamin D was founded in 2018 to create a scalable development team to fulfil the growing demand for custom platforms and services. This arm of the larger group employs ten developers (this will be increasing) to support a number of short term agency and longer term retained clients. To accommodate this growth we’ve recently renovated a bespoke, custom designed studio in the heart of Kyiv, Ukraine where most of our developers are situated.

We're also in the process of building a fund so interest in VC and investing is a bonus.

We are looking for an ambitious London based individual to assist in taking the company to the next level. Ideally you’d have a software development background and have experience managing teams, recruiting and handling general business matters. Someone who is ex start-up and super ambitious would be appropriate.

The group now consists of Vitamin London, Little Vitamin, Vitamin Cornwall, Vitamin D and Vitamin Amsterdam. Each company focuses on a particular market or type of agency work.

This role will be the most important position in our development pipeline and will be demanding but rewarding.

Some of the responsibilities for the role are:
- Supporting the sales team by discussing technical requirements with prospective clients and collaborating on proposals
- Communicating effectively and professionally, helping to translate our clients’ ideas into development
- Ensuring project manager(s) adhere to the agile process
- Overseeing recruitment of new development staff
- Implementing proper development processes and ensuring these are followed to the wire
- Recruiting, interviewing and hiring developers
- Understanding the needs of staff, performing appraisals and dealing with HR matters

We’d like you to have the following:

Web development
- Minimum 3 years working as a developer
- Knowledge of React, React Native and Node

Project management
- Detailed understanding of Agile and SCRUM
- Understanding of industry tools like Jira
- Knowledge of software release processes
- Ability to set and control budget and scope
- Ability to help clients communicate their ideas in a way that can be effectively executed by the team
- Ability to manage a growing team

Business management
- Previous experience starting your own business or startup preferred
- Identifying business improvements by staying up to date on tech trends, industry activities and competitors
- Good team player, self motivated and willing to seek out areas of improvement

Must be willing to travel to Kyiv approx. 1 / 2 times a month to liaise with the PM and team. This is not a 9-5!

The successful candidate may also have the opportunity of taking equity in some of our partners.

You'll get all of the excitement of working in a startup but with the backing of an established but progressive agency group.
