ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Technical Manager you will focus on leading one of our Software Development sub-teams. You will work at the intersection of innovation and technology to implement high complexity digital applications used to research the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance of public and private companies globally.
You will be responsible for managing the implementation, delivery and improvement of our digital product, while also constantly increasing the team skills, stability and performance.
The results of your work will help investors to define their investing strategy using ESG data and will push companies to improve how they treat the environment, their social spheres (workforce, stakeholders, consumers, nearby communities), and their governance.
As more and more companies move in that direction, everyone will benefit, from their employees to their customers to the world at large.
On our team, you can be responsible for that far-reaching change.
