Ecommerce CTO/Co-Founder

GatherrLondon1M ago

We build online e-commerce stores for influencers and we’re looking for a CTO to join as a 

co-founder. You’ll be joining two other young founders in their mid-twenties including an ex-fashion entrepreneur and an ex-Googler both with extensive experience in UI/UX. 


Our venture is backed by investors including ex-CEO of Dentsu & and ex C-level retail specialist, who were early backers of some of the most exciting names in tech.


Why is this an unmissable opportunity 

COVID-19 has caused social media usage to rocket, which has led to more and more purchasing decisions being influenced on social media - by influencers. We’re now helping influencers monetise this rocketing demand by building them their own stores to share all of their favourite products, brand partnerships and affiliates in one place - in a way that’s super simple:


  1. They pick their products
  2. Promote their store
  3. The rest is handled for them
  4. They collect a commission of each sale


We sit in the middle of two high-growth sectors, online marketplaces (account for 62% of global eCommerce market forecasted to grow to 64% by 2022) and influencer marketing (industry expected to grow from $8bn to $15bn by 2022), and we’ve set ourselves the goal of a 8 figure exit. 


What we can offer you

  • £40-45k per annum
  • Equity in a high-exit valuation startup.
  • Join as equals with the other founders and help direct the company’s course.
  • Grow your network working directly with industry leading investors, agencies, brands and influencers.
  • Build your own technical team.


What we’re looking for

  • User-focused developer who understands great products come from working directly with customers
  • Developer who understands tech-debt is a reality of moving fast and agile but are able to make decisions on how to manage it
  • Experience building marketplaces and eCommerce stores
  • Charismatic and people-focused and can make business decisions as well as technical ones
  • Ability to build an iOS app and at least a deep understanding of web-development


Responsibilities

  • Initially 80% implementation, 20% high level thinking, management and planning. As the team grows expect to shift toward management.
  • Find cost and tech efficient solutions for our product
  • Own the delivery of software, including estimation, planning and release management
