We are ONLY looking for qualified people who meet the following requirements:
Willing to invest your time without pay for stock until such time the corporation can afford to pay a salary. You will be one (1) of the three (3) Founding Partners of a newly formed California C Corporation; This is a remote position. You can work from your home. We understand if your involvement will be around you working a part of full time schedule given that there is no paycheck or salary initially for this position for this innovative and ultra creative start up game and mobile app company.
We are looking for a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to provide sound technical leadership in all aspects of our start-up business. You will communicate with employees, stakeholders, and customers to ensure our company’s technologies are used appropriately.
The CTO will be the main architect of the software. This includes:
Since it takes some time for a startup to start hiring devs, the CTO must also act as the main developer on the team. Hires will be made immediately. You will have a team of 4-6 people working for you.
As the startup grows bigger and the dev teams expand, the CTO work less as a developer and sometimes stop coding altogether.
The involvement of the CTO in directly writing code should be up to him, provided he has enough time and resources to be coding (or there's a special justification for it).
It will be the CTO's job to manage the dev team and act as the team leader as well as the VP engineering (until those roles are fulfilled). This includes:
When the dev team grows big enough, usually the role of the team leader is passed down to one of the senior engineers of the team (and sometimes someone from outside is hired for the job).
On the event of hiring / promoting a Team Manager:
Passing the VP Engineering Role
When the company grows even bigger its common to hire a VP Engineering to supervise the dev teams (however, its also common for the CTO to remain a part-time VP engineering).
On the event of hiring / promoting a VP Engineering:
Just like with devs, most startups start without a proper IT team. Its up for the CTO to take up that role until IT is hired. This includes:
When the startup grows bigger usually some IT personnel is hired, and report to the CTO.
With all the roles and responsibilities above its important to remember that the CTO is also a founder and an executive-level personnel, and as such he is entitled to be involved in the strategy planning and big decisions of the company.
Its easy for a CTO to gradually "sink down" into just the architect & dev roles, especially since there's so much work there, but its important that the CTO remains an integral force in the company's direction and be in complete sync with the other founders, aware and part of all major decisions.
