The Technology team at Ogilvy NY is behind a wide range of digital marketing work, from campaigns to long-term engagement platforms and everything in between. From multiscreen experiences such as Coke Zero Drinkable Advertising, to major website and platform development, and experimental work such as TypeVoice.net, or more recently, the first Interactive Dance Party in collaboration with Daybreaker, our Technology Managers help set the technical vision and direction on a wide array of large-scale creative, digital, mobile, and platform development work for our premier client brands.
In this role, you will be responsible for establishing technical architecture on client projects, determining resource allocation, and being involved in ideation for execution of the client’s vision. You’ll manage an interactive development team and lead by example, architecting solutions, setting and evolving development policies and standards as technology evolves, performing code reviews, and mentoring/training team members, all while maintaining the technical proficiency to step into the trenches of coding and development if necessary in order to meet deadlines. You will report directly to the Executive Director of Technology, and liaise between client-based and in-house technology teams, project & account managers and other business units, with a focus on pinpointing the intersection between technical, business, and creative goals, and the team’s capabilities in an effort to create immersive, unforgettable experiences for the client and end-user.
If you have deep application development experience across a wide variety of languages and technologies, the ability to inspire and direct a team of talented, forward-thinking technologists, and are ready to take on tremendous responsibility for managing the build and development of some of the most exciting digital and interactive projects our tech teams will work on, from concept to completion, we’d love to have you join us!
