Job description

Tasks

  • Oversee technical development and contribute to development tasks on various projects
  • Help lead web development hiring, including candidate review, technical interview, and hiring decisions
  • Take part in web team quarterly and year-end performance reviews

  • Make staffing recommendations for projects with Project Management
  • Support Business Development and PMs regarding web development
  • Conduct code reviews with web developers
  • Research, audit and adopt web technologies as required

  • Solid command line and git skills

Nice to haves

  • Commercial coding or web agency experience
  • Additional back end or programming languages — PHP, Golang, etc.

  • Experience with agile practices — scrum, kanban, etc.

Thai or foreign nationals accepted.
