  • Manage the change & data requests and bugs submitted by clients, assigning these to the relevant person and feeding back to the client;
  • Perform sprint cycle stand-ups and retrospectives with the internal teams to feedback current statuses;
  • Develop project briefs with clear timescales, scope, skills and effort required in conjunction with the technical lead;
  • Recognise and develop plans for potential monetisation of existing YouSoft systems.
