About PebbleRoad
PebbleRoad is a strategy, design and innovation practice. We help organisations thrive in a digital age by aligning strategic vision, digital experiences and organisational capabilities.
We started our practice in 2004 with one objective: to do impactful work. This single-minded pursuit has guided whom we hire, whom we work for, the work we do and the decisions we make.
We worked with clients such as DBS (Singapore), Digi (Malaysia), Sinar Mas (Indonesia), ADB (Philippines), CLP (Hong Kong) and many government agencies in Singapore.
We are looking for an experienced Technical Director to join our team in Singapore.

About The Job
We offer 3 services to our clients:
  • We help them craft a vision and create a strategy to pursue it.
  • We help design and build products using modern technologies.
  • We help them grow their digital capabilities.
As a Technology Director, you will help build the modern technology practice at PebbleRoad. This includes internally building the team, processes and capabilities and externally building partnerships and customer relationships.

What You Will Do
  • Build the modern technology practice at PebbleRoad.
  • Work with product teams to seamlessly integrate modern technology solutions into the product.
  • Be responsible for the technical architecture and technology stacks recommended and implemented to fulfil client needs.
  • Build the fabric of tech excellence by growing the team, defining processes and building new capabilities.
  • Evaluate, liaise and oversee our tech partners in a project context.
  • Create a culture of tech excellence and thought leadership in making advanced technology (e.g. search, AI/ML, IoT, blockchain, no-/low-code, etc.) relevant for business, which you are encouraged to share through events, blogs and other publications.
We're Looking For Someone Who
  • Has built a technology practice before.
  • Can communicate effectively with tech teams and non-technical stakeholders (i.e. business, designers, etc.).
  • Has 10+ years of technology leadership experience.
  • Has an engineering background and an architect’s mindset. Can balance between a hacker mindset of quickly diving deep and testing out, but also architect structurally sound systems.
  • Has experience with microservice architectures, defining APIs, structuring code, and building design patterns to tackle reusability/scalability/complexity.
  • Is experienced with DevOps toolchains and workflows.
  • Has experience defining and executing software testing practices
  • Solid knowledge of advanced technologies (e.g. search, AI/ML, blockchain, IoT, etc.) is a welcome bonus
  • Solid experience in no-code and low-code (e.g. Microsoft Power Apps, OutSystems, Kissflow, Retool, etc.) environments and their interplay with pro-code.
What We Offer
  • An opportunity to deliver meaningful change by working on big challenging problems.
  • An opportunity to work in cross-functional teams of experienced practitioners.
  • A flexible work environment with the tools you need to succeed.
  • A rich learning environment with the freedom to pursue new knowledge.
  • A platform to host and speak at events to share the learnings and grow your network.
