Global CTO

Are you looking to develop your technical/product skills in a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment? ๐Ÿ“ˆ Are you the person who will take our tech-stack from a bootstrapped patchwork to a scalable machine of wonder?

Job description
We are looking for a CTO as it makes the jump from a bootstrapped Zapier/Google Sheets solution to an in-house mentor/mentee tracking system for our personalised content platform. This platform will form a core part of our long-term vision to allow us to help more people, more quickly. Youโ€™ll be mentored by another programmer, and will have the opportunity to learn and grow with us. Youโ€™ll be free to create whichever stack you prefer (within reason!) - from Rails to Node - and we have plenty of AWS credits to support you! We are an organisation of doers and we hope that this excites you. The โ€œCTOโ€ title may seem grandiose for an 8-hour-a-week commitment, but we want to signal the ownership you should feel over our core technology. ๐Ÿš€
