CTO – Belfast

Help redefine how users participate in games on their mobile devices.

Join a truly unique company within the game industry and it’s based right here in Belfast.

You would be joining yet another highly attractive start-up in the thriving digital sector in Northern Ireland.  The founders have a long track record of success in building technology businesses around the globe. They now aim to redefine how users play games on their mobile devices.

This company launched in 2018.  They currently have two senior developers in place, and they are currently recruiting for a Product Manager and a CTO.

The founders firmly believe an opportunity exists to fundamentally disrupt the User Gaming Experience on mobile devices which can be currently characterised as static, repetitive, boring and counter-intuitive. They have developed a specification for a new type of application targeting the Gaming Industry which has already been prototyped and end-user tested with very encouraging results in 2017. 
This is the first start-up in this space in Northern Ireland providing a unique opportunity to be truly disruptive within a very lucrative industry.

They are launching the first product in July 2019 and they are recruiting CTO who can manage the development team and take ownership of the development plans for future products. This is a hands-on position and you should expect to be coding for 25% of the time. You will need to implement the core development processes as well as tool adoption.

The focus of this CTO job is the end-to-end development of the overall architecture of the platform.  You will also be representing the technical solution to clients and investors.

We are looking for a CTO who has at least 5 years’ experience of platform development in a multi-tenant model. You must have worked in an Agile environment and have demonstratable experience in team leadership. It is important that you have direct experience in games or digital media development. Also, it would be beneficial if you have some experience in mobile development, with Android or iOS.

The technology stack will include JavaScript (React and Reactive Native), Unity 2D, Firebase and AWS.

The first stages in the process is a coffee with one of the founders.  They will go into detail about the product, future plans, and more. This will give you a clear understanding of what is expected before progressing to a formal interview.

Simply give me a call/text/WhatsApp on 077 8988 6539 and we can start the conversation.  Anything that we discuss will be kept in the strictest confidence.
