The Opportunity 

We are on a mission to empower construction growth with world class cloud-based technology solutions, for global deployment, and in turn, deliver steel frame buildings faster, better, cheaper, and most importantly, with a lower carbon footprint. 

In this newly created role, the Chief Technology Officer will play a significant part in delivering the strategy and vision, of Donovan Group’s technology products. The focus for the role will be on two core areas – digital delivery of the Airbuildr Construction Technology platform, and Donovan Group internal enterprise technology, ensuring that technology is common, scalable, enabled globally, and meets international Cyber Security standards. And, just as importantly, you will inspire, develop, and engage a world-class team of engineers, product managers, UX designers, and data analysts. 

About You 

You will be a technology visionary, with proven expertise in technological development and the ability to execute that vision. 

You will have a bachelor’s degree in business or computer science, or even better, a master’s degree in business or a technology-related discipline. 

Your previous experience will include executive leadership roles, demonstrating a track record of technology innovation, design, development, and implementation, preferably in the AEC industry. You will have at least 10 years’ experience in software design and development, in a SaaS environment. And as this is a piece of technology for the construction industry, it is important you have deep knowledge of computational tools and workflows, but also of AEC practices and market trends.

You will be able to demonstrate previous CTO experience and the successful development and commercialisation of SAAS software.   

You will have previously bought together teams of people to deliver on development of SAAS software platforms.  You’ll be capable of understanding and clearly articulating the commercial product requirements and translating this into deliverable development sprints to ensure the best possible delivering from your development team. 

You are a “get it done whatever it takes” type of person who doesn’t settle for mediocrity and has a burning desire to create scalable industry leading software platforms for global use.
