In our experience, good people are hard to find at the best of times and they're impossible to find at the exact moment we really need them. Which is why we ask talented people to get in touch with us whenever they darn well like. Who knows, we might have the perfect role for you right now and if we don’t we will get back in touch with you the moment we do.

 

Technical Development Manager

  • Are you able to motivate and lead a team of Developers to successful delivery?
  • Do you have a true passion for technology, data and delivering value for clients?
  • Would you like to work with a fun, award winning team to deliver great digital experiences?

Yes? Then we are what you've been waiting for…

Cucumber listens intently to our customers, works closely with them to investigate and analyse their toughest challenges and then smashes them by leveraging emerging technologies. We engage at all levels in our clients organisations with passion, skill and a near obsession for adding value with each interaction. As such, we seek people with similar drive to join our growing team of 40 people. Right now we are seeking an exceptional Technical Development Manager. This new position will be based in our HQ in beautiful Tauranga, Bay of Plenty with occasional travel to client sites. If that’s not enough to tempt you, how about a few Cucumber facts. We:

  • Are in growth mode with a clear strategy, which focuses on both a services and product approach
  • Have technical ambition to match: we are not shackled by technology constraints, but it is also not a free for all. We use the technology that makes sense for the problem we are solving
  • Have a smart, passionate team who genuinely care about delivering together for our clients
  • Care about our people, with monthly social events, monthly company updates, cakes on your birthday, fresh fruit available and a great office environment!

As Technical Development Manager your main focus is working with our current and prospective clients to understand their strategy and ensure Cucumber is implementing scalable, best practice custom .Net solutions, as well as a number of sites built on the Sitecore platform to create and maintain long-term sustainable relationships. A senior member of the team and reporting to the Cucumber CTO, the Technical Development Manager is also responsible for leading (including day to day management) a group of developers and be excited about mentoring and influencing them to deliver results. You are a passionate and enthusiastic leader who enjoys taking your team with you on the journey and watching them grow. Your previous experience with hands on development will be evident and your strong technical ability will back this up. 

To hit the ground running as Technical Development Manager, you will be good at:

  • Management: Experience managing a development team.
  • Coding: We believe that our technical leaders should always be coding, exploring new areas and challenging themselves. You must have a strong technical background with 5 + years of solid hands-on experience in Microsoft C#, ASP.Net (Web Forms & MVC), MS SQL and JavaScript. Optional – proficiency in the Sitecore platform.
  • Architecture: You will be comfortable working with clients and the development team to lead where practical, if not support, the solution architecture approach for projects and designing the best solution within scope that works for our client.
  • Agile: We use agile delivery practices across all of our projects. You will be experienced working with SCRUM using Continuous Delivery and enjoy working with these practices.
  • Understanding: Playing a major part in the entire lifecycle of solution delivery, you will have knowledge and experience from ideation, to UX, to architecture, to code, to testing and deployment.
  • Mind-set: Thinking big and acting fast, you will need a start-up mind-set with enterprise awareness. You can manage competing priorities and adjust plans quickly to meet project outcomes.
  • Mentoring: We continuously share knowledge and learn from each other. With the technical experience you bring, you will be an inspirational teacher to your peers, mentoring the team and bringing them up to speed on new approaches, languages and skills. 
  • Influencing: You understand both the client’s problem and technical solution and you’re able to advocate for excellence and effect change.
  • Communication: Your people skills will be used just as much as your coding and technical skills, so solid communication and experience dealing with clients at a high level is essential to your success.
  • Awareness: You will be able to keep up with the current state of the entire project at all times and be fully aware of any potential blockers. If there is an internal or external force that threatens slowing the project down, then you should know about it.

Cucumber is where technology passion and family values combine to make a truly unique company. So if you would like to exercise your true potential and be mission critical to the team and clients you are servicing then please contact us today!
