  • Join Zeevo, a market leader in custom web solutions and software for business
  • Technical Leadership role providing solution designs that balance technical best practice with delivery time frames.
  • Outstanding growth opportunity, with aspects of hands on project and product development
What’s in it for me?
Zeevo are a well established, well respected market leader in custom web and mobile solutions and software for business, based in the heart of Christchurch’s Innovation Precinct.

Working closely with idea and business owners, internal development team and other stakeholders, Zeevo recognise that projects thrive on positive, focused collaboration, both internally and externally. With a team who really get a kick out of working with high caliber clients, delivering projects that give clients and their business a leading edge in our ever-changing market environment, they are looking for a new leader within the business.

The Software Development Technical Lead will work alongside the Software Development Team Leader, providing solution designs across bespoke web and mobile development projects and SaaS product development, within the context of an Agile software development setting.

What would I be doing?
The Software Development Technical Lead will act as a lead and mentor within the development team, reviewing team members' code to ensure a good level of consistency and quality across solutions. They will be the champion of new technologies, delivering high quality software that meets or exceeds client expectations.

Working across bespoke web and mobile development projects and SaaS product development, the technical lead will have at least a 50% component of hands on development, while also focused on solution design, reviewing source code, training junior developers on good practice and solution design, and helping Zeevo develop their IT delivery infrastructure (servers, networks, Cloud and operating systems).

This is a broad and challenging role requiring a responsive and positive approach to Zeevo clients and their changing requirements.

Reporting to the Software Development Team Leader, the Technical Lead will be improvement oriented, retaining a very strong focus on external customers, helping to ensure projects are delivered on time, every time, with an experience that ‘delights’.

What do I need?
Our ideal candidate will be an experienced professional, with a positive mindset, an encouraging approach, a very strong communicator, and with the strength of character to rally, inspire and grow technically, an internal team.

We are looking for a shaper, a driver, somebody on a quest for improvement, and really able to set the tone in an established team environment.

We would expect to see the following level of experience from the successful candidate:
  • A minimum of 10-15 years within an IT/Software development environment
  • At least 2-3 years in a Technical Leadership role (could be within a Senior Dev context)
  • A proven track record leading improvement and engagement within a professional software development setting
  • Strong understanding and experience with Agile (Scrum)
  • Hands on experience developing in technologies such as C#, PHP, JavaScript, SQL Server, Object C or Open source technologies
