About Kerve

We design and build interactive experiences for amazing brands.
All our work starts and finishes with the highest creative standards but, perhaps just as importantly, we focus on the projects we can have the most fun with. Why? Because over the past 22 years we’ve found the best results come from doing the things you love.

Head of Development

Kerve is looking for a Head of Development to inspire, direct and build our development team, and provide clearly communicated technical consultancy to our clients. The ideal candidate will have a foundation in JavaScript development frameworks, have already been part of a development team, and will be ready to take a more senior management role in an enthusiastic and experienced agency.

Able to interrogate the heavily technical elements of a brief/solution

Very good communication skills – in person and in writing functional spec documents

Diverse tech knowledge and development experience ideally gained in an agency environment (rather than in-house role or product development experience)

Seeking out the newest technologies, broadly understanding them and suggesting how they could be utilised by Kerve or their clients

Technically minded and comfortable with clients
