About this role

As CTO 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. You will co-develop our machine learning data strategy and lead on its deployment.

This is both a strategic and a “roll your sleeves up” job as we enter the next phase of our growth. You enjoy leading teams through ambiguity and the thrill of delivering against key milestones. You are both strategic and operational, and can work with junior developers as easily as you talk to C-Suite clients.

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 5 years in a leadership position. You will have enjoyed a successful career trajectory to date and be highly regarded by your network. You may have been involved in a previous successful startup exit.

Reporting directly into the CEO as an integral member of the leadership team, this will be an exciting opportunity for you to join a leadership team of a company on course to make a big impact on the lives of many people.
