Why is this role important to Code for Australia

The Chief Technology Officer’s role is to assure the successful execution of Code for Australia’s mission through development and deployment of technology solutions and programs with our Government partners. It’s big.

Always be shipping - You know how to manage teams and programs. You have enough experience to make solid technical and management choices. You know when not to use the shiny new technology. Much of work will be on or supported by government staff on old systems, you need to be comfortable getting the good deeds done with these legacy tools.
