Engineering Manager Online Channels @ BNZ
After a couple of decades of software development, Jade accidentally found himself in an engineering leadership role. Initially not keen on the engineering manager title, as he never saw himself as a manager, but enticed by the hope of having some influence in building a better environment for engineers to flourish. Jade fights to keep the management part of the role to a minimum while trying to stay relevant and valuable to engineers.
Over the last 4 years as manager, Jade has been involved in reshaping BNZ online banking ways of working — standardising and industrialising their software patterns, increasing their scalability and reliability — all while the organisation reshapes their technology business unit.
