Lead Developer / CTO

Old Street, London

£80,000 - £100,000



I've partnered up with an exciting VC backed startup based in Old Street who are looking for a Lead Developer / CTO who's an expert in Python and Django technologies to come in and lead, manage and build the app that's due to go live in a couple of months!!

They operate on a world-class, highly scalable python-oriented stack hosted on AWS, set-up by the current technical team.

They're looking for a lead developer to take them to the next level. The ideal candidate will join as Lead Developer and grow to become our CTO in a very short space of time.

Working with the founders of the business you will:

● Grow the business by leading the technical strategy, supporting additional funding rounds and building a tech team pretty much from scratch

● Own and manage all of their technology, codebase and infrastructure

● Be equally excited by the prospect of leading technical strategy and cutting code



To be considered for this role it's essential you have the following hands on skillset:

o High Priority: Python, Django

o Medium Priority: React Native, GraphQL, PostgreSQL, AWS

o Low Priority: Redis, Celery, React, Java



If you're genuinely excited by the opportunity of joining a fast-growing start-up in the social betting space, then this is the perfect role for you!

For this role, my client are looking to offer a generous salary up to £100k plus equity for the right candidate plus a fantastic benefits package so it is certainly a very competitive remuneration in the current perm market.
