CTO - social networking startup

Where: temogo

Date Posted:


£cash + equity

Software engineering whizz kid needed to turn the concept that is TEMOGO into reality. This is an ambitious project with a grand vision for location-based social networking.

As CTO you will be in charge of all the technological aspects of the project; from building it to the upkeep/redevelopment as it grows. You will be able to think for yourself and anticipate problems before they happen. With your own share of equity you will treat the business like your own, and do what it takes to make it work, even if it means working weekends. You will be relied upon to choose the best solution to reach the project’s goals, not the solution which suits you best – if you’re not right for the project you will be honest and say so.

The project is essentially a graphically based messaging system, but with some key USPs. Ultimately the front-end engine will mature into something akin to Waze or Recce, but an MVP would be much simpler. Experience with mapping technology is therefore a big bonus. It will need to be mobile first of all; whether through mobile web or native apps is something we would need to discuss.

Ideally, you will be able to code and build the MVP yourself, but we are flexible and ultimately it will be up to you how to apportion the cash/equity you are paid with. If you think you have the relevant motivation and expertise for this role, please send your CV with a covering letter, along with details of any portfolio, to
