CTO to growing fintech company, Zimpler, Gothenburg

Right now, there is an exciting job opening as the CTO for Zimpler, one of Sweden's fastest growing fintech companies. You will have a key leadership role in an innovative and agile environment and have a real impact on the development of the product. You will have the opportunity to both work with strategy and people, supporting the development team to grow in autonomy, motivation and knowledge.

What will be your responsibilities?
The CTO is responsible for providing a strategic perspective on technical decisions related to the product and platform. That perspective is formed through technical expertise, business understanding and close collaboration with the development teams. The CTO is responsible for promoting a culture of autonomy, collaboration, innovation and sustainability, as well as communicating and representing that culture outwards. This role is a key position within the company and an important part of its continued success. You will:
  • Establish & drive the vision of the architecture & platform
  • Make the right sustainable technical decisions together with the dev team
  • Be a technical coach
  • Make sure that technical choices are aligned with business
  • Setup goals and capacity requirements & manage process and technical changes
  • Contribute to the recruitment of tech talents
What kind of experience do you need for this job?
If you have worked in a similar position or/and have several years experience of working in a leading technical role with a track record of software development, you can be just right for this job. You have a broad technical background with knowledge of:
  • modern DevOps
  • Cloud
  • docker & microservices
  • monitoring
  • continuous integration/deployment
  • software/platform modeling & architecture
Most likely you know that you are able to motivate and inspire others within a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment. With excellent communication skills and a passion for technical solutions you can bring valuable knowledge to the company. With a background in product or/and agile development you will be able to improve the way we work and become a strong ambassador for Zimpler in different communities.

What can you expect when joining Zimpler?
As you arrive on your scooter, bike or bus you will enter one of the exquisite buildings at Vasaplatsen, central in Göteborg. Your workday will be set in a start-up environment with great ambitions. Zimpler has more transactions per minute, more features to deliver, more developers to onboard, more teams working in parallel - and are building stuff in a microservices architecture! They already have a lot of lovely things in place: automated tests and deploy, everything runs in containers with centralized logging and alerting - but still it is a long journey to reach DevOps heaven! Also expect a lot of freedom, many cups of tea (or coffee if you're that type of person) a few train rides to the office in Stockholm, a couple of nerdy quiz, French cakes and fresh challenges every day.

Interested or a little bit curious?
Can this be the next position for you, or maybe know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know! The position is based in Gothenburg and is full-time employment. Welcome to apply or contact me if you want to know more; Linda Landin Ödman +46 763 173828 linda.odman@jerrie.se, but no later than 1st of March.
