Director of Development Managed Services
fjorge is a full-service development firm with over 40 developers on staff. Our Managed Services teams are the detectives, emergency room, mechanics, and renovation specialists for existing client websites and applications. What sets fjorge Managed Services apart from the competition is how we humanize the client experience, and work to uncomplicate the world of technology through open lines of communication and literally uncomplicating the code we inherit.
We are the solution to client digital needs. fjorge offers a fun environment with diverse tickets across different mobile and web app platforms, a growing range of benefits, and professional development opportunities. We value a curious nature that drives continual learning, a desire to effectively tackle issues through open communication, and a positive approach to problem-solving.
fjorge is looking for a leader to drive the vision and growth of our Managed Services team. Our ideal candidate has strong business acumen, diligent department budget and stakeholder management skills, prior experience in the web development space, a keen ability to relate to others and can lead a technical team without needing to have all the technical answers.
This department establishes long-term relationships with agency partners and end clients for websites and applications from the point of launch to deprecation. Both fjorge-built and inherited accounts are eligible for Managed Services offerings, which include hosting, emergency on-call support, systems administration, maintenance, continuous development, and technical SEO services.
“Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to apply only when they check every box.” If you think you have what it takes but don’t meet every point in the job description, please apply anyway. You can explain in your cover letter and through the interview process how the experience you do have will help you succeed in the role!
