Intro

We're looking for a great CTO, who will lead our technology team in building a next generation smart assistant.

Main requirements

  • Ruby: You spent a good number of years developing a deep understanding of RoR
  • Leadership: You have the ability to coordinate all of our development efforts
  • Passion: You don’t just want to lead, but are passionate about coding yourself
  • Big picture: You keep the big picture in mind in everything you do

Nice to have

This is our tech stack, so the closer your previous experiences have been to these technologies, the better:

  • Back-end: Ruby, Rails, RSpec and Sidekiq
  • Front-end: Backbone, HAML, SASS, D3 and ZURB Foundatio
  • Infrastructure: AWS, docker and dokku; PostgreSQL and Redis

Perks

  • Values: We have a clear set of values that drive our actions. And we are not talking about a mission statement that hangs on our wall, but concrete actions that we take to make a difference in how we operate.
  • Environment: We design our work-environment in a way that feels good to us. Hence, we pay attention to how it feels spending our working hours in our office.
  • Health: We have gotten used to eating healthy lunches thanks to our steaming tradition.
  • Learning: We constantly experiment with smarter ways of working such as running targeted experiment loops to validate our assumptions.
  • Inspiration: We draw inspiration from partners such as the HPI School of Design with which we collaborated as project partner.
