Lead Engineer / Architect / Head of Technology - Hands on CTOAnson McCade
Hands on CTO needed for specialist firm in the Media Industry. Great opportunity for someone to take next step in career Lead Engineer / Architect / Head of Technology - Hands on CTO required to undertake a lead technologist role for a business about to undertake their next step in the technology journey. My client, a small, specialist data driven firm in the Finance industry has achieved significant success to date which has seen company grow a foothold in key markets.
Currently they have a key set of technologies that they are relying on to service their clients based on .Net and some proprietary software. Due to recent growth, they need to define future tech strategy, rearchitect and deliver their systems for scalable growth.
As such they are looking for someone to come in as CTO and drive this. Ideally they are looking for a hands on engineer or architect who is looking to step up into a CTO role. You will be leading this transformation, building a team through delivery over their next phase of growth.
While they have a small technology team currently, they are looking for someone to come in and help drive their technology decision making internally and potentially with client focused product set. This role is part engineer, part strategist. If you feel that you bridge the gap between Business and Technology (from the tech side) and have worked in small to mid-size firms helping them grow this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
Depth and breadth in technology would be a big bonus – Systems, data, digital – focus doesn’t really matter as you will be leaning on people in other areas but to be the go to person in one area at least will help your credibility in the role. In terms of sector, any commercially focused domain could have parallels but scaling technology and exposure to commercialising products could be of interest. This is an excellent opportunity with a great deal of autonomy and the chance to make a real impact.
You will be working with some great people in a very forward thinking firm. Beyond a challenging and satisfying role, there is a strong remuneration package on offer also..
