Front-End Developer Chapter Lead

“Chapter Lead?” you might think. 
A dynamic role with the opportunity to combine servant leadership with hands-on execution of your high-quality Front-end developer skill set!

Earlier this year we reorganized our Technology and Innovation (T&I) Department in DFDS and introduced a new way of working – in tribes - a network defined by mission and purpose. In every tribe structure, there are three key lead roles, one of them being the Chapter Lead. Right now, we are looking for our next great Front-End Developer Chapter Lead to make a difference for the Front-End area in DFDS.  

What it is like to be Chapter Lead  

As a Chapter Lead, your main objective is to ensure consistency and work standards, capability building, line management and vision setting within your area, in this case Front-End. This also means that you are a specialist and passionate about Front-End yourself.  

You will become part of the Technology & Innovation Department and be Chapter Lead (line manager) for 6-8 of our skilled Front-End developers.  

It is important to notice that the role as Chapter Lead is also what we call playing coach, and your time will be spent on three core areas:  

  • You will develop the Front-End craft 

  • You will line manage the Front-End developers within the craft., e.g. leading, recruiting, developing, and evaluating people 

  • You will be a Front-end developer in your own agile team

To get an even better feeling of how it is to be working as a Chapter Lead in DFDS, here is what one of our Chapter Leads says about it:  

As a Chapter LeadI am a “playing coach” as we call it. I work both with the teams to develop value for our customers and I am a driver for the Scrum Master Chapter where we develop our craftmanship together. If I should describe the culture in T&I in three words it would be: Ambitious, open minded and humorous. People are great and we really got something going on!”
