At BHP we’re embarking on a journey to enable a fully integrated and highly automated business from resource to market. Our Big Hairy Audacious Goal is to revolutionize technology in resources, by exponentially accelerating the speed at which we can adopt new technologies.

We envision a future where data ingested from every part of our operations, drive automated decisions using machine learning algorithms and natural language processing; built on software defined infrastructure and delivery platforms. This technology foundation translates into a future of smart operations that are safer, cleaner and super-efficient.

How? By building deep technical digitally empowered teams inside BHP that embrace agile, customer centric and lean ways of working. These software and hardware technology delivery teams (called tribes) converge in the foundational digital capabilities of Software Engineering, Data Engineering, User Experience and Hardware Engineering.

This approach is part of BHP’s new #techrevolution and we are all excited about our future enabled by a digital mindset. We want to create a culture of intrinsically motivated people who understand what they are building, why they are building it, and have the tools and capabilities to deliver fantastic value to our business. We recognise that we require technical and cultural assistance to adopt and embed agile and user-centric ways of working within our teams.

To execute these goals, we need exceptional leadership for our technical experts in these tribes and we are looking for a highly skilled and experienced technical, Digital Development Manager (coach if you will) who will work with our delivery teams and tribe members to develop the people, embed the processes and culture we need to succeed. The tribes are already in place and scaling to a size where the Digital Development Manager role is urgently required.
