  • Working as part of a Scrum team to deliver projects – participating in all Scrum meetings
  • Ensuring quality on our projects and contributing to ways of enhancing this
  • Supporting our delivery team to deliver projects on-time

Technical leadership and mentoring

As a senior member of the team, part of your role is to provide excellent technical leadership and be a role model at Manifesto.

Some of the things you’ll get involved in which will demonstrate this will include:

  • Helping kick off projects and providing ongoing support to the delivery team to help ensure the projects are a success
  • Providing estimates for projects
  • Taking responsibility for understanding how much time is available for projects and highlighting impediments at the earliest possible opportunity.
  • Mentoring more junior members of the team and making yourself available for their questions in an approachable way.

Drupal Contributions

To be London’s best creative technology agency Manifesto needs to be current and deliver work that is both strategic and executed with dedication and craft.

To achieve this it’s crucial that we take time to reflect on what we’re doing and actively participate in our own and external communities.

As an agency it can be difficult to make time for this crucial element of our development but it’s is absolutely part of your role to:

  • Participate in regular team meetings or events
  • Speak up if you see something isn’t working
  • Actively engage in your own professional development and suggest training that would help you or others
  • Get involved in communities of practice around your role
  • Participate in wider communities relevant to your role
  • Research new technology and share your thoughts on them with the team
  • Create regular blogs for the Manifesto website
  • Further the quality and approach to Drupal and PHP development at Manifesto
  • Participate in Drupal related communities to help us stay up-to-date
  • Participate in one or two innovation projects always having at least one that you’re associated with
  • Demonstrate the Manifesto guiding principles in your work with clients and the team

In turn our commitment is to make time for these things. This isn’t always easy and we want you to let us know if we’re falling short.
