The Development Manager for our Investor Portal team will coordinate and oversee a cross functional development team of consultants delivering a custom portal solution on AWS.
Our investor portal, LP Connect, is one of our main touchpoints with our Investors and is a critical application for our Investor Relations (IR) and Fund Management teams. It plays a critical role in helping our IR team meet their fundraising goals and provide content to high level decision makers of our investors. It's also a critical data/information exchange for documents, reporting and transactions for all roles supporting our investors. The Development Manager will contribute to making significant advances in our content management, event management and reporting capabilities to drive increased engagement on the site, particularly for high level decision makers.
The Investor Portal Team embraces agile/scrum methodologies to deliver fast incremental improvements across the platform. In this role you'll work with all members/roles of the team on ensuring they're delivering the right priorities with high quality using scalable and extendible architectural principles. This individual will own and dive into the full stack of the site from our AWS infrastructure as code, through our dotnet containers, to our React front end, and many other key services that make up the platform. The Manager will also help shape and define improved levels of automation and delivery as the team continues its journey into DevOps.
