Technical Delivery Manager
TECHNICAL DELIVERY MANAGER
You’ve probably read a Bill Gates or Andy Grove biography or two for fun and have a soldering iron on stand-by for when you feel like tinkering with a mother board – tech is part of your DNA. Order, timing and productivity are your lifeblood.
You’re an accomplished project delivery manager, who can scrum, agile and prototype with the best of them – heck you’ve probably got some fancy PM acronym after your name to prove it. From hardware to software upgrades to app development to the build & rollout of major new websites, your skills and experience keep tech projects on time, on budget and fully debugged.
And whilst this talk of tech makes us all tingly inside, you’re a people person too and understand the value of building strong respectful relationships with clients and your team through excellent communication. Basically you’re a Babel Fish of martech (see Douglas Adams), since we’re not all as tech-smart as you, your mission is to help the rest of us understand your world a little better.
Innately curious and fixated on delivering real-world results, your new home will be with a group of likeminded people. Becoming a Bright Spark at AFFINITY excites you because you’re tired of working within existing paradigms and want to be part of once-in-a-lifetime builds that will bring meaningful and measurable change.
We’re a bunch of serious thinkers dedicated to creating unmatched business outcomes for our clients. We love challenging ourselves each day, finishing mentally tired but totally satisfied we contributed to something meaningful. Go home, disconnect, play and come back for another round. Proudly independent, we are an AFR Best Places to Work as well as one of the most effectiveness awarded agencies on the planet.
So if the time is right and you’ve grown out of your old world, we can’t wait to welcome you to an inspiring new one.
