Overview

The Director of Digital Technology breaks the “business as usual” mindset for clients through innovative problem-solving and igniting excitement to reach a better digital future.  

In this critical consulting and engineering leadership role, you are  responsible for spearheading our technology strategies and development efforts while building long-term customer relationships within a growing consulting services company. As a key member of the commercial technology team, you have a seat at the table when it comes to crafting our technical vision and leading teams successfully through our enterprise client’s greatest challenges.

You are a hands-on, seasoned technical professional who has mastered the art of communication because you know that a great solution is only great if you can communicate its value. You love to learn and have an insatiable curiosity for how things work. You can handle ambiguity with ease and logically spot patterns to help guide the path forward. 

Because each client and their needs are different, you are comfortable wearing multiple hats and rolling up your sleeves when needed. You’re a thinker AND a doer. When compared to others, you stand out as a star player who will do whatever it takes to get the job done—no matter how big or small the job is. You lead by example as well as help others.

As a team player, you will work closely with a team of strategists, subject matter experts, and executive leaders to craft technical solutions that accelerate our client’s businesses and their growth—all built upon a deep understanding of our client, our client’s customers and their needs. While you can work independently when needed, you know that the best ideas come when involving a well-integrated and trusted team. When working with this team, you communicate fully and transparently. You’re humble, genuine and smart with the goal of wanting everyone involved to grow, succeed and ultimately be personally and professionally better as a result.
