Director of Development / Small company CTO

Posted 7 March by Avanti Easy Apply

Director of Development / Small company CTO - Oxford - £70k - £75k + stock / equity / shares

Avanti Recruitment is currently working with an innovative start up that has an exciting name in the Tech community. This role is to enable the company to grow as per their ambitious plans, having been successful already in securing 3 rounds of VC funding.

The role will suit a seasoned professional coder who has most likely moved to more of a hands off role, focusing more on leadership and management of a highly skilled Development team, but will still be able to help with coding where necessary and help to improve the performance of the development team. The tech stack is JavaScript and Python so hands on coding experience with these technologies would be a big advantage. If you haven’t been close to the code for a number of years, this won’t be the right fit. A small company CTO / Development Director could fit, or someone who has worked in another start up. Team leaders from large companies on high salaries just won’t be the right fit.

This is the sort of opportunity that could offer a current Development leader an amazing opportunity to work with like-minded people and be part of an extremely successful business, contributing to strategic direction and making key leadership decisions.

Technical capability is paramount to success in this role, as is a real passion for delivering to clients. It is important that the successful candidate can roll up their sleeves and get stuck in with coding if necessary, can act as a sounding board to the development team and can make key decisions concerning technology and company direction.

Focusing on the structuring and operation of the product and development function, you will nurture talent and a great culture whilst delegating development tasks to your highly skilled team.

You will be playing a key part to growing the development, engineering and product team from 10 to 25 in the next 24 months. As a key member of the management team you will continuously build and develop the team in technical and leadership talent which will include coaching, hands on development if necessary, code reviews, architecture design, operations and security.
