We are looking for a highly driven, forward thinking & skilled individual to join us as our CTO and Co-founder to help to continue to expand and improve our startup. This is the perfect opportunity for someone looking to get onboard at an early stage with a project that is already showing phenomenal potential.
We are a South-west based tech startup operating a new form of social app across the globe. Our soft launch product only hit the app stores late last year, however since then we have experienced unprecedented popularity and growth. Currently we have seen almost 300k downloads of our app without any advertising or marketing of any kind, in fact things have happened so fast that we are still on the soft launch version of our product (more on this below).
To date the project has been created and run by our founder alongside our head of design with all of the heavier technical work being outsourced, however now that the project has begun to gain traction and is showing real potential on an international level we are keen to bring on a dedicated partner who will act as our CTO and take charge of all technical aspects of the project.
As mentioned above, due to the unexpected immediate popularity of our app and the large number of downloads it has received, we are still currently on our soft launch build version (which of course is not ideal given the amount of traffic that it is seeing). In the role of CTO you would be responsible for implementing a series of technical changes designed to increase not only our overall user base but also our retention rate and general ‘stickiness’. Moving forward your role would be to manage the performance of the app as well as implementing any technical fixes / changes as and when required.
As a co-founder you will be a vital part of the team and will be part of all discussions and strategy moving forward
Who we are looking for
We are looking for an enthusiastic, excited and driven person to join our team. In addition to great technical ability, you must be hungry to succeed! This is an opportunity to get on board early with a project that is showing phenomenal potential!
This role would suit someone who can schedule dedicated time to the project around other project commitments. We would be looking for a commitment of 16-20 hours per week with some of those hours scheduled in regular office hours to have project meetings.
Experience within a startup not essential but a bonus!
Your skill set should include:
- React Native
What is on offer
The reason that we want to bring onboard a co-founder (equity partner) is because we are believers in emotional investment. By offering you equity of our app we believe that you will be as driven and as hungry for it to succeed as we are – Something that saw us go from a ‘no-advertising’ standing start to almost 300k downloads and interviews with the BBC in less than 12 months!
Things are moving fast. We are already expanding faster than we thought possible and are looking to bring in outside investment in the coming months (subject to some product improvements and an increase in stickiness).
Now is the time to get on board, This is possibly the last chance to be able to say that you joined in the early chapters of what is likely to be a very interesting story!
These are very exciting times for us as a platform and as a company. We hope to welcome you aboard for what is likely to be the ride of our lives!
Although we are based in the South West of the UK, we are happy for our new CTO to be based elsewhere and work remotely, subject to the ability to have face to face meetings when required as well as daily catch up calls.
If this opportunity excites you, you feel that you are prepared to be a part of something huge and you feel like you are who we are looking for, please get in touch – we can’t wait to meet you!
