As OpenCorporates’ Chief Technology Officer you will :

·  Have responsibility for the full stack development of our products and  IT network

·  Set our technology agenda, with vision and insight

·  Help us deliver our product roadmap at high quality

·  Identify new opportunities for improvement and innovation

·  Build a truly world-class tech team, both substantially growing our existing team, and creating effective systems and processes to help deliver OpenCorporates' important mission

OpenCorporates' mission is to make public data relating to companies useful and accessible, at volume, at speed, to a level, quality and insight not seen before so you need to be comfortable dealing with it, handling complex concepts, managing big datasets and understanding data flows.

The OpenCorporates architecture also has a variety of components which need to work together seamlessly. You must understand and be able to deal with the challenges this raises.

You will oversee our existing  development and tech team, providing guidance and setting standards to enable them to support existing products and build out new features in a robust, scalable way.

You’ll also be helping us grow this team, hiring more great developers that believe in our mission to implement the technology strategy you'll be setting.

We’re looking for someone who has a passion for data, who wants to work for an exciting and profitable company with a genuine public-

benefit mission, and world-leading trustees to oversee it. You’ll be ready to push boundaries, but understand that building robust, scalable systems requires a clear coherent vision and deliverable plans.

You’ll want to identify opportunities to improve what we have and sell your vision to all the business stakeholders, to create truly world-

class technologies and tools from the internal data pipelines to a backend that stores and presents the data in a way that allows insight and analysis.

A passion for dealing with hard technical problems

You’ll most likely have :
