Director, Technology Services

The Director of Technology Services will lead a small and quickly growing company in shaping our technical service delivery.  This job entails evaluating and recommending new technologies, providing recommendations on market trends and strategic outlook, developing and maintaining a technical process, hiring and onboard technical resources, supporting the sales/marketing process and leading both the backend and frontend programming teams.

A technical degree and previous digital agency experience overseeing senior level Drupal programmers as they lead multiple large-scale web projects is desired.   If you enjoy having a public facing role (interacting with clients, speaking at conferences, representing the company) as much as you enjoy building and growing an environment that will allow technologists to thrive, you will find this an ideal position for you.  

We are a small company!  This means that the Director of Technology Services may need to roll up their shirtsleeves and keep their fingers in the code as needed.  This role is not expected to be more than 20% billable – so you should have strong experience building large-scale Drupal websites.

Key components of this role:

  • Lead a Senior Level Technical Team (front-end/back-end developers)
  • Hire and onboarding new talent
  • Process Development
  • Ensure industry standards are followed and met consistently
  • Evaluate and recommend new technologies or technology trends  
  • Support sales presentations, lead technical demonstrations and support proposals with cost estimations
  • Have comprehensive experience working with research, UX, design and development teams to build online experiences

BENEFITS:

  • Excellent compensation for your work and expertise
  • Full time, 40 hour work week, Paid time off and holidays (including your Birthday!)
  • 401(k) with 3% company match
  • Health Insurance
  • Life and disability insurance
  • Flexible scheduling of work onsite and/or remotely
  • A work environment that welcomes and values your ideas!
