Chief Technology Officer (CTO Engineer, Product, Data, Strategy)

Anson McCade

CTO needed for a fast growing Digital SME company related to financial services and retail space (payments focused)

  • Technology Leader
  • Set technical direction and strategy
  • Hands off but must be an engineer
Chief Technology Officer (CTO Engineer, Product, Data, Strategy) required to undertake a leadership role working with rest of C-suite to drive technical direction and decision making for the next phase of growth.

My client, a growing name in the payments space has achieved significant success to date which has seen company grow into low 100's. While they have a strong technology team and product set, they are looking for someone to come in and help drive their internal and external technology decision making around product, platforms, data and digital. 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 mid-size firms helping them grow this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

The ideal candidate will have a strong track record either working in technology or setting tech direction.  Previous experience as a CTO is not required but a rounded upward trajectory in career is definitely favoured.

Furthermore, deep subject expertise in an area of technology would be a big bonus – product, data, digital – it 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, retail, Financial Services and particularly payments are beneficial but scaling technology and exposure to commercialising products in other sectors 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 and well renowned group.

Beyond a challenging and satisfying role, there is an excellent remuneration package on offer also. There is potential for flexible working also. Please send CV or call for further information.
