Huge is looking for a global head of technology for our commerce practice. You will report directly to our global head of commerce, driving Huge’s perspective on what good looks like - from platform strategies for apps and websites to emerging technologies and patterns - and help lead our most important projects online, in-stores, and everywhere in between. The Commerce practice at Huge is rapidly expanding, and is one of our most important strategic initiatives - this role is an opportunity to get in at the ground floor.

You will have the opportunity to work with our most exciting clients, and with teams from New York to Singapore, London to Detroit. This is a highly visible role, with opportunities for public speaking, thought leadership, and partnering directly with client executives, third-party partners, and regional Huge leadership.

Technology directors at Huge are cross-functional. They understand business challenges and goals, have strong perspectives on the platform landscape, can set direction and guide clients and teams through complex trade-offs and decision-making, and can lead integrated teams to deliver amazing solutions. They are orchestrators and leaders, and relentlessly focused on bringing a vision to reality.

Additionally, this role will have responsibilities in supporting our corporate strategy for delivering end-to-end eCommerce work, helping mentor our teams and grow commerce capabilities across our various regions, and identifying and engaging with third-party partners ranging from emerging technologies to service providers.

What you'll be doing.

  • Develop relationships across the Huge global network, influencing teams, supporting existing account needs, and reinforcing strong ties between the commerce practice and regional teams.
  • In partnership with the global head of commerce and leaders at Huge, support the definition and execution of Huge’s strategy for executing end-to-end eCommerce website and app implementation work. 
  • Participate in pitches, business development, and public speaking opportunities.
  • Work internally and externally to stay abreast of new developments in digital commerce, including new platforms/technologies, interacting with partners, and the latest thinking on modern commerce experiences.
  • Lead the definition of technology strategies for clients, front-end and back-end, including evaluations and vendor selections, exploring needed capabilities (across people, process, and technology), and consult on key technology decisions with internal and external teams.
  • Regularly partner with cross-functional Huge teams - including visual and experience design, product management, user research, product, analytics, SEO, and project management - in the creation of concepts and experiences that align to the vision for a client.
  • Mentor and manage senior team members, including selecting platform technologies.

What we’d like to see.

  • 5-7 years of experience in commerce consulting, including delivering technology strategies to senior executives.
  • A strong understanding of the current commerce technology platform landscape, emerging technologies in the commerce space, and common solution architectures (ranging from headless or “MACH” based to more monolithic patterns).
  • Broad exposure to large (e.g., Salesforce Commerce Cloud, SAP Commerce Cloud, Oracle Commerce Cloud), mid-market (Shopify, BigCommerce, Magento), and modern or more emergent (commercetools, elasticpath, VTEX, Fabric) solutions.
  • Experience in researching and exploring new solutions, developing relationships with platforms, and directing the work of others.
  • Familiarity with leading content and experience management platforms (including Contentful, Amplience, Bloomreach) is a plus. Experience with complex front-end architectures, including API-based models, is a plus.
  • The ability to estimate work and staffing, and strategize to satisfy client budgetary requirements.
  • xDemonstrated experience leading a team of 10 - 12 people through a successful multi-month technical delivery process.
  • The ability to coach and transform a diverse and talented team into a high-performing delivery machine.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
