Technical Director, Healthcare

Technical Directors (TDs) at Code and Theory are subject matter experts in particular domains and stay abreast of developments and changes in those industries and technologies. They are paired with clients and lead complex technical projects from inception to delivery.

TDs craft the right technical approach to meet business needs and future-proof client organizations. They are also responsible for the management and development of a team aligned to specific technical competencies.

As a Technical Director focusing on our Healthcare Service offering “Code and Theory Health”, you should understand and have experience with a wide range of Healthcare-specific software (including Veeva (Salesforce), IQVIA, Crossix) as well legal, compliance, and security protocols. Additionally, familiarity with Healthcare Ad Technologies and data handling are a bonus.

  • Assist the developers in their day to day activities
  • Be involved in client meetings (stand ups, steering committees) to provide technical client communication and progress updates

Throughout the project/program lifecycle:

Other required skills:

  • You are comfortable working with 3rd-party vendors for integration and support
