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 a Chapter Lead (line manager) for 6-8 of our skilled Front-End developers.
It is important to notice that the role as a Chapter Lead is also what we call a “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 be more precise on what you can expect as our new Front-End Chapter Lead, it will be your responsibility to:
Ensure consistency in ways or working and standards within the professional domain across tribes
Lead professional expertise through standard setting
Provide sparring on best practices or new ways of working
Be line manager for professionals within their trade and chapter across tribes and assumes responsibility for review and development plans
Develop people within their area to become the best possible professionals
Ensure rewarding career tracks and best in class training
Develop and lead the vision for what a professional is within their craft
Communicate the ambition both within and outside the professional domain
Inspire and create excitement around the future of the craft – is a specialist within the field and ensures cutting-edge knowledge/training
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 Lead, I 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!”
- Lisbeth, Scrum Master Chapter Lead.
We are agile... Are you?
We are working agile in T&I. As the agile principles are very defining for our culture and way of working, you need to either have experience with working agile or at least to have the interest in following the principles and the Scrum/Kanban method.

Modern front-end build pipelines and tools
