Chief Technology Officer (CTO) – Stockholm, Sweden

We are looking to recruit an inspiring and proven CTO to help guide the company towards the next stage of growth.

We believe high-end creative project management is lacking at many creative facilities who still opt for sending hundreds of emails and track projects by sending Excel sheets with thousands of cells back and forth. Simply by storing this information on the cloud with a beautiful UI, accessed by any web-browser, all of this information can be stored securely to collaborate with anyone in the world, using powerful production tracking and pipeline tools to ensure projects are delivered on time, every time. Our clients regularly win prestigious awards for their high level of quality in blockbuster films, triple-A games, and eye-catching advertising campaigns. We concentrate on improving project management so creative teams can spend less time on admin and focus on what they do best – create stunning visual content.

The CTO will also be responsible for leading and managing the development team, supported by senior developer leads. We’re offering the right person, the opportunity to join our dynamic team to help unlock the next stage of our growth. You will be offered equity share in the company and be responsible for driving the company a step closer to world domination.
