The role will serve as a technical leader setting the vision for a scalable technology stack and software architecture while being hands on and ultimately responsible for driving implementation forward.

What You’ll Do:
- Leverage a deep and broad understanding of the technology landscape and market, and serve as a thought-leader in order to assist in platforms and technology selections and decision making
- Draw up technical specifications for custom development and systems integration requirements.
- Participate in architecture design, build schedule, milestone, delivery, and post-project reviews

We constantly challenge ourselves to push boundaries, defy conventional wisdom, and take smart risks by pursuing big opportunities hiding in plain sight.

We push ourselves and portfolio companies to build processes and systems that compress time, speed, and decision-making to produce results faster.

We demand the best from ourselves, our team, and our partners. We create the context for success by providing the appropriate resources, infrastructure, training, and mentorship required to win.
