The Role
Since several work modes are offered to all our employees (100% from home, Flex, 100% in-office), job opportunities posted here are available whether you live in Quebec or Ontario, unless indicated otherwise.

We are looking for a technical director to oversee all the technical endeavours undertaken by the Player Insights team.

The team is continuously developing and improving our data pipelines to support the games produced at Behaviour. Team members work with a variety of stakeholders, including, but not limited to, product managers, brand managers, game designers and developers. 
 
To help us achieve our vision, we are looking for someone to be accountable for the delivery, maintenance, and improvement, of all the technology developed within the Player Insights team.While you are expected to be responsible for some people management, this role is more technical than managerial.  
In this role you will :
  • Steer and guide the technology developed, by defining the technical strategy, managing technical risks and mitigation plans, making high level design, architecture, and implementation decisions, to develop the most appropriate data pipelines. 
  • Work with the technical leads and data developers on the team, mentoring, guiding, and helping them take the best technical decisions. 
  • Work with other technical directors at Behaviour to align on the technical strategy of each product. 
  • Work with the data scientists and the data analysts, to ensure that the data corresponds to their needs. 
  • Work with all the stakeholders, to ensure their expectations are well met. 
  • Interview candidates for technical positions. 
What we're looking for :
  • This is a senior role with at least 8 years of prior experience in data engineering. Prior experience as a technical director is also a must. 
  • Technical versatility. You need to be comfortable with database architecture, ETL, data engineering programming languages, cloud data platforms, and DevOps concepts. 
  • Experience in master data management implementation. 
  • Great communication skills. You will be working with technical and nontechnical people, catering the message to the right audience.
  • You need to be solution-oriented and possess a collaborative spirit.
