Head of Digital

The job of a lifetime


Apply

Following recent client wins and evolving our business model to future technologies, our Product Team is growing and we’re looking for a Head of Digital to be the principal technical solutions architect and technical evangelist to help achieve our exciting plans. The right candidate will drive forward our technical strategy both internally and for our clients, leading both sides with an agile approach to web & digital product development utilising and taking advantage of public cloud services and emerging platforms.

 

Working within a cross functional team alongside our UX and development teams, along with our strategic partnerships, you will be able to successfully work with clients to establish solution requirements with a focus on digital transformation.

Traditionally Cube3 has been focussed on open source technologies, utilising open source platforms and services over its 20 year history.  Whilst we see the principles of our open source rationale being maintained, we are also looking to develop a more emerging technology repertoire utilising public cloud services and best in class platforms and integrations to create more future proofed and robust technical solutions.

 

We are looking for an individual who is passionate about emerging technologies and platforms that allow for our agency to grow and differentiate through continually evolving, but firmly structured technology stacks.
