As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to change lives and to transform organisations. A global perspective and cultural diversity are reflected in all aspects of our research and teaching. With a presence in four locations Europe (France), Asia (Singapore), the Middle East (Abu Dhabi) and North America (San Francisco), INSEAD’s business education and research spans four continents.

Currently, INSEAD has a need for a Technical Lead who would serve as the main contact and operational point for all the school’s needs surrounding our use of Canvas – our Learning Management System. This is a full-time and permanent position based at our campus in Singapore.

Canvas is the foundation of our teaching programmes and how our classes are delivered to our students. The Technical Lead is the key person within the IT department who would provide direction and execute design, development and testing of all software applications according to INSEAD’s programming standards. It is a role that continuously strives for improving business efficiency and productivity.

Stakeholder management skills are as important as technical ability in this role and the Technical Lead must guarantee excellent cooperation with all project members, business representatives and external experts. The Technical Lead should be able to translate the needs of the business into Canvas and vice versa; being able to create presentations on developments that are friendly to a business audience.

Integration is a major part of our architecture framework so the Technical Lead will also need to collaborate intensively with vendors and contractors – ensuring external parties meet the standards set by INSEAD. Most of all, the Technical Lead has the ability to analyse the needs of the business and create necessary solutions while highlighting potential risks concerning timing and resources.

The successful candidate should possess the following qualifications and qualities:

  • In-depth knowledge of the Canvas Learning Management System.
  • This is not a fully-fledged developer role but a certain knowledge of Canvas development will be needed.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and a strong sense of customer orientation.
