Chief Technology Officer (f/m)

Job description

About your role


Your role is incredibly important to ChartMogul. ChartMogul is heavily investing in R&D (product development) and as such the engineering department (that you would lead) makes up nearly half the company’s headcount. Aside from leading your organisation, you also play a critical part in our ability to grow and scale by being the critical link between the business strategy and the engineering team.


You work closely with the Product Development team and the Engineering team to ensure technical considerations are factored into the product roadmap and business strategy.


A big part of your job involves enabling engineers to deliver. This means you spend of lot of time mitigating against factors that could hinder productivity or otherwise disrupt your team. However, you also dedicate a fair amount of time to thinking through the technical future of ChartMogul’s platform. Leveraging feedback from your engineering team, you identify opportunities to improve the software and enable it to meet current and future needs.


Finally, you act as a leader in the organization and champion ChartMogul values. You’re responsible for a team of 15 really talented engineers, to whom you provide coaching and mentorship. Your main objective is to enable all engineers so the unit can meet its objectives. Therefore, you work to create an environment where everyone is encouraged to share ideas and take initiative, and made to feel safe voicing opinions. You also identify skills gaps in your team and work to either upskill existing team members, by providing professional development opportunities, or recruit to complement your team’s skills.


What will you be doing?

  • Analyzing the product roadmap and making recommendations based on feasibility and viability

  • Mastering our tech stack and making recommendations based on how development of new features might restrict future development

  • Facilitating collaboration and communication with other ChartMogul teams

  • Leading the prioritization exercise alongside Product Management, Customer Success, and Sales teams

  • Providing technical input during fund-raising and for investor reporting

  • Managing technological aspects of GDPR compliance

  • Transforming existing architecture and infrastructure to position the software for growth

  • Dedicating time to researching and fully understanding the changing tech landscape to promote innovative practices at ChartMogul

  • Collaborating with team members at all levels to increase engagement, promote an understanding of engineering challenges, and consequently get more done

  • Line managing a group of engineering leads

  • Providing mentorship, support, and career development opportunities

  • Building and nurturing a diverse and inclusive team of high-performing engineers
