Job Description

Headquarters: New York, NY

URL: https://shiftlab.co

Shift Lab is a team of design-minded UX designers and developers. We solve complex challenges for our clients through the use of creative technology.
We craft beautiful, user-driven experiences, connecting the dots between client ambition, conceptual design thinking, and thoughtful code. From extending a creative director’s vision in a digital product to reinventing systems that improve our quality of life, we create innovative user experiences and technical solutions.
We are strongest when we collaborate with creative partners and business leaders who value transparency, iteration, and craft. We’re for those who seek a team creative, but technical, experimental yet focused; esoteric digital experts who know how to explain things.
Our projects are typically bespoke to the creative or cultural technology challenge at hand. An agile development process keeps us open and responsive to every evolving user need. We’ve kept our headquarters in New York City, but our team is fully remote across all US time zones.
We are:
A tight-knit team of UX designers and creative technologists. We use a variety of languages and frameworks to collaborate with startups, nonprofits, corporations, social impact brands, cultural institutions, and more. We often collaborate closely with top-tier international design agencies.
Our modern, bright, open office space is located in New York City, but our team is everywhere. We empower and trust our people, providing ample opportunities for career growth and work frictionlessly across all US time zones.

Director of Technology

We’re looking for a Director of Technology; a builder of people, a strategic thinker, and a capable practitioner. Someone who can mentor, guide, and enable our amazing team of technologists — and work with clients, too. You have: a proven track record of effective technical leadership and culture-building. We have: a kind and capable team and roster of clients waiting for your leadership.

Working collaboratively with product + project managers, and our clients, our Director of Technology will help set technical architectures, project plans, roadmaps, and then delegate full-scale development to our teams of capable, cross-discipline Agile teams.
Shift is coming off of seven consecutive years of healthy, sustainable growth, and we are ready to bring on a technology leader to help us unlock our next phase of (calculated) growth. The Director of Technology will join our agency’s leadership team and will have a critical role in shaping and guiding the future direction of our business and team.

You are:

  • Experienced in directing talented groups of humans and have 8+ years of experience.
  • An empath, an innovator, a people-first technology leader.
  • A champion of the Agile process.
  • Someone who still wants to be close to code (but maybe not too close).
  • A master of object-oriented programming concepts, capable of learning just about any language or framework.
  • Collaborative by nature.
  • Comfortable with cloud computing architectures and products.
  • Understand that good user experiences don’t happen by accident.
  • Highly motivated by quality work and craft.
  • An extremely effective communicator.
  • (Somewhat) tech agnostic, and open to choosing the best tool for the job. Probably not .NET though.
Together we:
Comprise a well-rounded, dynamic team known for premium, innovative UX and development work. Apply yourself at careers@shiftlabny.com.
