We’re looking for a Software Development Manager!

Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire.

Exciting opportunity to be an integral part of a transformational software company, where you will help millions of youth leaders and children every day!


We provide a bespoke web-based membership management system to youth organisations around the world and already have over 100,000 users using the system every day.

Our users love our software and our aim is to keep them happy, developing more functionality to save them time, and to grow the product into other areas.

The company was founded in 2011 and has been growing ever since.  You will be joining a small, agile company that is moving out of start-up mode into a more structured way of working to meet the needs of larger clients and to enable a faster growth rate.


You will be responsible for a small team of developers (currently 2-3), as well as being a developer yourself.

You will lead the development and testing of the product, reporting to the director of the business (who initially developed the product).
