We’re looking for a confident VP of Tech with a strong Drupal background who can take our client, a fast-growing cable TV network, to the next level. This role requires a mix of strong technical leadership, strategic vision, and a heavy-duty track record of building immersive experiences across web and mobile platforms.
The ideal head of technology should have the confidence to build the right technology strategy and to lead and mentor a team of developers who are itching to build great stuff. You should have deep experience launching or re-launching high-traffic, content-rich sites, along with a healthy dose of diplomacy that has enabled you to operate effectively within matrixed organizations.
A card-carrying member of the Drupal community, you have an excellent understanding of design patterns and software development architecture, and can communicate your cross-platform thinking so that your devs can build it — and users can use it. Also on the plate: HTML and CMS, PHP, and experience with popular API frameworks. Beyond that, tell us what you’ve got in your toolbox, and we can go from there.
As a strong proponent of Agile, you’ll be charged with introducing a more nimble, iterative process to your team: a smart bunch, not easily impressed, but more than willing to give their all for someone they believe in. To earn their trust, you need to be their champion within the company and always be ready to roll up your own sleeves.
Our client is a forward-thinking digital early-mover with aspirations to build a truly social digital platform that’s unique to cable TV. Your job is to lead the team that runs all of its web and mobile platforms. You’ll be charged with identifying and implementing the right technology infrastructure and solutions to ensure a multitude of platforms are supported, as well as guaranteeing the scalability and flexibility to grow.
Not only will you map out this vision with the digital business group, but you’ll also take the lead on execution. Plans for a relaunch of the core website are already underway, with mobile to follow — and you’ll be a key player in driving this forward. You’ll have a Tech Lead and two developers reporting to you, and room for additional headcount.
This network’s been winning awards right and left, setting the industry abuzz with its achievements in tablet, mobile, and on-air/Web integration and second-screen experiences. Come ready to dazzle with evidence of your own multi-platform smarts.
This is an opportunity to have a major impact on a huge media brand and work on some of the coolest technology products on the Web.
