You’ll be responsible for leading teams of talented developers and engineers across a variety of increasingly challenging projects.
Firstborn is looking for a Technical Director that’s not afraid to get his or her hands dirty with active coding. Your main responsibility will be leading development across multiple projects with small teams of programmers. As a Technical Director, you’ll be analyzing business and creative requirements to determine the technical approach for a project while working directly with developers to execute the given challenge.
You’ll be expected to understand and use the latest frameworks and technologies and provide assistance and mentorship to juniors on the team. On larger and more technically complex projects, you’ll work with the Lead Developer to ensure development is considerate of the technical approach and that all aspects of the project—such as security, performance, usability, and aesthetics—are held to our standards. On smaller projects, you’ll lead the actual development with a Junior or Intermediate developer, laying the groundwork and providing code reviews to monitor progress.
As a part of our Technical Leadership team, you’ll be expected to help strategize approaches for new business on pitches and new work requests. You’ll also have the opportunity to impact the way we make work—both on the Development team and at the agency overall.
