Seek Limited (SEEK), focusses on creating world-class technology solutions to connect more people to relevant employment, education, small business and volunteer opportunities. SEEK makes a positive contribution to people’s lives, and its strategy is to match more candidates to opportunities than anyone else through using its scale to build a radically more efficient and effective marketplace. Across ANZ and Asia, they maintain over 40 million candidate relationships, with exposure to 900 million people.
In early 2018, SEEK announced a change to their organisational structure that created a new operating entity – Asia Pacific & Americas (AP&A). This change was designed to help SEEK come together with greater collective strength in an evolving competitive environment. Within this change, one of the most significant elements was the creation of the Chief Technology Officer role for AP&A operations.
Reporting to the MD AP&A Product and Technology, the CTO would be the voice of technology in the organisation. They would be responsible for leading the delivery of software development across the SEEK Asia Pacific operating structure. The role could be based in either Melbourne, Australia or Hong Kong, HK, and would lead large agile software development teams across different regions building the full spectrum of SEEK products. The role was to be responsible for building global product engineering capabilities through the transformation of existing regional teams, and development of model collaborations which would allow the SEEK Group to move faster and solve more problems for candidates and hirers across the globe.
