Delivery Director

Red Badger is well known for Delivery. We deploy cross-functional delivery teams who are capable of solving the most complex technical problems. We consistently use lean agile techniques and this is central to our success.

As a Delivery Director, you will take responsibility for maintaining alignment with Red Badger’s way of working and ensuring quality. We are looking for someone with a strong track record of large scale digital delivery to be a part of a Leadership team to help the growth of a Red Badger Cell, which is a smaller business unit within Red Badger.

You drive sales activities with existing clients as well as prospective clients. You are able to design digital and delivery strategy, and be influential with clients.
