Team Lead, Technology Development

We are now looking for a passionate full stack developer to join our newly established Digital Products and Services team and lead our Technology Development function.

People work at Wellington Water because they want to make a difference; that means helping to look after our most precious assets: water, human health and welfare, and the environment so our communities can prosper.

It is an exciting time to work in the water sector as the focus on challenges such as climate change and sustainable water supply require us to work both innovatively and collaboratively.

The ability to access and utilise good quality data and information is increasingly important across all roles in our business for both the delivery of our services and the way we work together. The recent announcement of a new water regulator and new water regulations will only amplify the role our data and information assets will play in the future in order to inform our priorities, operate efficiently and demonstrate compliance.

As a member of the newly established Digital Products and Services leadership team, you will be instrumental in supporting both the establishment of the team and transitioning the organisation towards a new way of delivering data and information services and ultimately technology through cross functional teams.

Responsible for the line management of a small development team, you will ensure that development resources are prioritised with organisational needs and deliver a quality of output. You will also bring your experience in full stack development to be a hands-on developer as part of a cross functional delivery team.

You will use your strong relationship management skills to quickly make connections and build up and lead a community of practice across our partner organisations and client councils.

Knowledge of Amazon Web Services, ArcGIS, Sharepoint and Tableau is highly advantageous. Knowledge of or experience in the Water sector is not a prerequisite.
