We are partnering with an incredible mission driven start up that is focused on changing the way that we live our lives. Their mission is to make the world a healthier and happier place through mindfulness. They have big ambitions to make a positive impact on a global scale.
They are an early stage start up, their product itself is doing incredibly well – with no marketing at all they have 4 millions users, 10,000 daily downloads, and a 5 start rating on the App Store. They are angel funded, but are already cash-flow positive. The cofounders are very successful entrepreneurs who have had incredible success in their previous businesses.
They are looking for a hands on CTO with extensive experience creating web and/or mobile applications to join them as an engineering leader. Initially, you will be managing a small team of engineers, lead the architecture design and work very close with the founders.
They are looking for someone with coding excellence, a willingness to build a strong engineering team, as well as someone with a keen focus on the quality of the product and overall user experience.
