Lead Developer (Shopify)
Our story :
Founded in 2016, Overdose has grown out to a family of 450+ staff, with offices across New Zealand, Australia, South East Asia, Europe and the USA. We work in a partnership format with a select group of clients looking for innovation and accelerated growth in a competitive digital landscape.
We take an abductive approach to design thinking, applying a balance between consumer empathy and data-driven insights. Our always-on approach to delivery forces us to think bigger and challenge the status quo. Our reputation is the key to our success.
About the role :
As a Lead Developer, you are responsible for providing technical leadership for the SaaS development team. Your focus is to be working on complex development tasks, providing solutions consulting to clients and setting the frameworks for the development team to work with. Experience with Shopify and Shopify Plus is essential. React experience is preferable as more of our projects are skewing towards Shopify Hydrogen.
Be a Shopify expert: We need someone who lives and breathes the Shopify platform. Your experience could be in an agency, merchant side or working as a freelancer.
Coding: Utilising your skills as an experienced developer to deliver quality work efficiently for clients.
Solutions: Solving problems, ranging from initial project discovery, to those that arise during projects and critical bug fixes.
Technical scoping: Assist with architecting solutions for ecommerce projects to ensure Overdose deliver the most efficient and effective solutions that use the most appropriate combination of apps, APIs, custom development and human resources.
Delegation: To ensure you are able to utilise your skills where they are needed, you will need to delegate parts of projects that can be completed by other developers across other offices.
Time management: An ability to juggle large project work with day-to-day client requirements. You need to work to a schedule and own your deadlines (this includes helping to set realistic timeframes).
Project management: Work with our project managers and client success team to ensure smooth end-to-end delivery of large projects and make sure our retainer clients are serviced impeccably.
QA testing: assist with testing on all project releases and help to improve QA testing processes.
