CTO

Join us in changing how pet care is provided worldwide.

FirstVet is the first truly digital veterinary clinic. We let pet owners meet licensed veterinarians via their mobile, tablet or laptop. Our solution contributes to a more balanced and better functioning care process for all parties. By providing a first point of contact for all pet owners FirstVet makes pet care more available, more efficient and more qualitative. Since FirstVet's inception, our co-founder and CTO has led our tech organisation. The time has come to divide this outstanding and tight knit team into 1 - Tech and 2 - Product. As our current CTO will head the product team, we're looking for a new CTO.

The role:

At FirstVet you will lead a small, fast growing (currently ~8 developers) team and be responsible and lead the technical development of the platform, both operationally as well as strategically by making technical decisions and implement new functionality with the help of others in the team. Your daily work will include system architectural design, system reviews, security, maintenance and performance optimization of our web servers and cloud platforms.

Currently our tech stack includes AWSPHPMySQL and frameworks like NativeScriptAngularVue and Laravel.

As our CTO you will:

  • Leading the tech organization including personnel responsibility, budgeting, forecasting and strategic planning
  • Represent and drive the development of the FirstVet platform in a global market
  • Responsible for mapping the business against technology in the best suitable way 
  • Prioritize and implement requirements internally
  • Deciding the technology stack, languages, platforms 
  • Responsible for the technological agenda of the company
  • Create the start-up mentality needed to gather and strengthen every member both personally and technically
  • You will report to our CEO 
  • You will have a close collaboration with our CPO as well other internal stakeholders
  • Be able to jump in and write code when needed

Who are we:

We are a young and fast growing start-up working passionately to build a high quality service and an expansive global company. We value personal qualities at least as much as background and experiences. We believe that having fun together in a professional environment will build a long lasting company culture where everyone give 100%.  

The person we are looking for has:

We believe that you have at least 7+ years of relevant systems engineering experience, preferably with experience from top or middle management roles. Previous experience including the skills and drive necessary to fulfill the obligations in a high growth, fast-paced company is a clear advantage. You are a technology enthusiast and a geek with full-stack understanding and as a person you are flexible, positive and solution oriented combined with great leadership skills. You have excellent communication skills in both speech and written and you are fluent in both English and Swedish. Previous experience of recruiting top engineers is absolutely an advantage.
