Pariti, an exciting venture-backed startup with enormous growth potential, is looking for a passionate and dynamic CTO. This is a remote full time position with equity and competitive compensation. Depending on the candidate this role could also be a Head of Engineering role.

Why we need you

  • Startups face tough decisions every day about how to allocate scarce talent and capital. Investors are challenged by the lack of information and expertise in less-served markets. Pariti is exploring ways to help them solve problems for both sides, using cutting edge technology.
  • Processing high volumes of qualitative and quantitative data about startups, and presenting this complexity in a manageable form
  • Creating interfaces that enable users to navigate high volumes of data efficiently
  • Managing distributed talent all over the world, maintaining visibility and quality control
  • Creating beautiful APIs for your front end friends!
  • Growing community spaces for founders and investors where matching and communication can happen to the benefit of both sides

    We've got foundational tools in place, but you would be joining early enough to influence every part of our architecture as we go forward. We also want you to contribute to our collaborative and fun company atmosphere.

    This is a critical role for the team at a time when we’re looking to grow significantly over the next year and beyond.

    We are looking for someone who is driven, smart and just as willing to get stuck in to our high level tech strategy and architecture as they are to get hands on and produce excellent code. Ultimately they will need to build a team of software engineers around them as the business expands.

    Perks

    • Impactful work – help transform investment for the founders that need it most
    • Real responsibility – own a modern engineering stack at a fast growing startup
    • Rockstar team – join a team that are passionate about building something game-changing
    • Founder level contribution – strategic inputs, culture shaping, talent acquisition
    • Output-driven work culture – flexible working hours and location
    • Equity and ownership – as a founding team member, there is  a significant equity portion with a vesting schedule and competitive compensation

      Responsibilities

      • Ability to come up with simple and elegant solutions that support Pariti’s product and platform needs
      • Solid understanding of the full software development lifecycle including application architecture design, testing and productionisation
      • Demonstrated passion for great design and user experience
      • Deep understanding of security and data best practices
      • Technological leadership. You will need to work as a high-level technical problem solver with the casting vote on architecture decisions. You will know where you can delegate and where you need to maintain control.
      • You will play a major role in the product process. You will manage the product team’s relationship with engineering and you will inspire developers with the resulting product vision, while managing expectations upwards and downwards.
      • Grow a lean team of engineers or subcontract development responsibility according to your own strategic plan
      • Contribute to defining the product roadmap.
      • Work with the team to agree a clear set of agile and engineering practices, and promote them with technical mentoring.
