As a supplier of compliance management solutions with over 4000 customers using our products, it would be easy to label Ideagen Plc as a software company, but with offices across the UK, USA, Bulgaria, Malaysia and Dubai we are so much more than that. We are a company that continually works with its customers to maximise what can be achieved with effective management of their compliance system – a remit much wider than a set of products. The last financial year saw us reach 62% growth and with a strategic plan for the future that involves growth through expansion and acquisition there has never been a more exciting time to join the Ideagen Team!

You will also be expected to balance the needs of the roadmap against existing issues within the product, such as internal bugs, necessary refactoring and external support cases.

  • Responsible taking strong, educated leadership decisions on the direction of the product to ensure that the product strives to be the best in class; this includes working closely with the Product Management to understand the products position within the market and how it stacks up against the competition
  • Responsible for the constant refinement and estimation of the development backlog to ensure that progress is on track and the development team can maintain velocity
  • Ensure that iterative releases are communicated and demonstrated to business stakeholders in a timely manner to ensure that feedback is collected and fed back into the development backlog where necessary
  • The ability to balance priorities to ensure that the highest standards are maintained whilst new features are delivered, through clear and effective negotiation between diverse stakeholders with opposing priorities
