CTO-in-Residency for DT Starts
If you’re a new but talented developer, love entrepreneurship, and have dreams of playing a central role in red hot start-up, the CTO-In-Residence position at DeveloperTown Starts is the perfect next step.
It’s the ultimate learning experience: CTOs-In-Residence will spend the next 2-3 years working alongside great founding teams while learning from the experienced DeveloperTown team, and then either join a startup they fall in love with or start their own!
Being a star startup CTO also means being a great technical cofounder. Working on the DeveloperTown Starts team goes way beyond the “Chief Technical” part of the job and gives you the chance to legitimately add “Officer” to your title by learning the business side of startups. You will participate in our constant debates on the next most important steps and the relative risks/rewards of each. And the chance to work alongside both seasoned and first-time entrepreneurs and connect with our advisors and investors will serve you incredibly well when you launch into your own startup.
The position is fully paid, expects a “startup-level” commitment from you, and includes the chance to earn equity participation in the startups on which you work. We’re looking for candidates with at least:
⁃ 2 – 4 years of Ruby on Rails or Node.js experience
⁃ Demonstrated ability to develop full web apps (please have samples of your work)
Your responsibilities will include:
⁃ Developing technology strategies with our CTO for our co-founded companies
⁃ Working with your teammates to deliver stellar codebases that are ready to scale
⁃ Implementing strategies for maintaining low technical debt and long-term code evolution
Core technologies we use:
⁃ Ruby on Rails
⁃ React / Redux
⁃ Node.js (just a bit, maybe more in the future.)
⁃ Be able to work in a team
⁃ Enjoy learning from others
⁃ Be a clear written and verbal communicator
⁃ Have kick-@** problem solving skills
And most importantly:
⁃ Show a willingness and readiness to lead and inspire other technical team members
