We are looking for a driven and talented CTO to come and join our fast growing and well funded startup team. 


What matters to you?

We are looking for people who want to make a difference and are motivated to lead a young but fast growing company with a big social ambition.  

We are a HealthTech company on a mission to help older people live with greater confidence, wellbeing and dignity, through better informed and more timely decisions by those who care for them. The data we collect, and the relationships we have with leading researchers allows us to be on the very frontline of dementia research in the UK.

The Role

Reporting directly into the CEO as an integral member of the leadership team, you will design and deliver our new Service Oriented Architecture that will lay the foundations for the future of the company whilst supporting us to build out our ASP.NET Core 2.0 RESTful API.

This is both a strategic and a “roll your sleeves up” job as we enter the next phase of our growth.

Owning the entire software development lifecycle, you will lead on the specification, architecture, design, coding, testing and deployment of solutions within our Microsoft .NET environment.

The ideal candidate will be extremely self-motivated to succeed, and will have spent at least 3 years in a leadership position, ideally in a startup. They will be considered high potential by their current employer and will have have had a fast career trajectory to date. They may have been involved in a previous successful exit.

This will be an exciting opportunity for them to join a leadership team of a company on course to make a big impact on the lives of many people.
