We’re looking for a Director of Creative Engineering to join the Quartz Creative* team.
The Director of Creative Engineering leads a creative team of developers in concepting and building compelling digital stories (interactive articles, data visualizations, display units, bots, games, etc.) on behalf of clients, allowing them to challenge advertising conventions and audience expectations (TLDR: At Quartz, we want our ads to be as strong as our editorial content).
We’re seeking a leader who can contribute to a culture of innovation, experimentation, and continuous improvement, and who can identify new tech trends and apply them to our products.
Responsibilities and skills include:
Oversight of a team of five software engineers
Experience with a wide range of technologies and modern frameworks
Excellent communication and collaboration skills are a must
Creative mindset and ability to think of new ways of telling stories for clients—and ability to transform original concepts to executions within tight timelines and client constraints
Process-minded and organized, can manage multiple projects at once and tight deadlines while remaining calm, collected, and positive (a sense of humor is a plus)
