In this role you will:

  • Provide technical leadership and guidance to the development team.
  • Lead the design, development, and maintenance of web applications.

  • Prior experience in a technical leadership role. You will be guiding a team of talented engineers - not just managing, you will coach and inspire our developers and guide them in their career with Partful.

Asking the right questions before jumping to solutionisation helps us stay laser-focused, efficient, and aligned with our mission and vision despite the temptation of a huge world of possibilities out there.
  • Transparency: We value honesty and transparency from the top down. Everyone's voice is encouraged and heard.
  • Diversity: We are a diverse bunch, and we love how differences give us peripheral vision and creativity.
