Your responsibility

- You are responsible for the entire IT architecture and infrastructure and it is basically up to you to choose the appropriate technology (currently PHP and React JS).

- Collaborating closely with the CPO, you will be leading the development activities including integration, testing and deployment of new products and features.

- You are in charge of recruiting/completing and heading the development teams both in Zurich as well as in our nearshore center.

- You deal with the interfaces to our current and future partner systems and you guarantee the scalability of all IT systems

- Together with your team you document all past and future developments and take care of all IT related challenges.

Your profile

- Excellent skills and experience in the area of IT architecture and databases.

- You have successfully led a team of developers and shipped outstanding products with such a team.

- You have a very analytical and conceptual mindset and you bring a comprehensive understanding for software development and operational processes (teamwork, development, deployment, testing, code optimization, etc.).

- You are experienced in agile software development and you have startup experience – hence you know when it’s important to strive for the perfect solution and when to go for the pragmatic option.

- Focus on the goal, a go getter attitude, an entrepreneurial mindset and very good communication skills are must-haves; and of course flexibility and ability to work under pressure.

- Ideally, you have already built a nearshore team in your previous career.

- Experience as full-stack developer, AI knowhow and skills and an understanding / interest in UX/UI are advantageous.

What you can expect

- Centrally located office in Zurich
