We’re looking for a Chief Technology Officer that is not just an inspiring leader but a visionary who knows how to build great products and use their strategic mindset to bring the best out of others.

As we champion the customer and focus on efficiency, we’re looking for leaders that can build a world-class technology company and inspire excellence to be driven at speed. We’re growing, and it’s now more important than ever that the backbone of our product is our technology.

The role 💬
Build and drive the growth of our Engineering team. We’ll rely on you pre-empting what's around the corner, and your decisions will heavily influence our product and customer-led growth.

Drive a culture of impact, respect and candour. Our mission is ambitious and underpinned by our Principles. As we scale, not only will you help us hire and grow our engineering team, you’ll create a culture centred on high performance, speed and intentionality.

Launch products and scale globally. You will design and deliver a modern technology strategy that ensures efficiency and sustainable growth. Your expertise will see us adapt our approach to technology and see us continue to build new exceptional product features and improvements for our customers while maintaining the quality and experience of our existing product.

Your experience ✨

    • You care about people and talent. Your leadership should inspire growth in people individually and within their teams. You’ll leave any ego at the door and take a human-first approach that encourages innovation, feedback, high performance, and the best decisions.
    • You know how to build great products. Being a leader in a product-led business, you’ve seen efficient growth and know how to tactically and strategically ensure technology plays a fundamental role in a business.
    • You champion the customer. Our customers underpin everything we do. You encourage teams to deliver the best for the customer and ensure the customer remains at the forefront of every decision. You always put yourself in the customer's shoes to ensure value and impact.
