CTO for edutech startup with Angel/seed round completed

Counselor Oslo Full-time
Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated
We are an EdTech startup that aims to disrupt the university admissions industry worldwide. The industry is highly fragmented, with over 20,000 small companies helping students find and apply to universities globally, and university recruitment is highly inefficient, with universities spending thousands of dollars per student on recruitment. Our offering will upend both by digitizing and using state of the art tech features to consolidate recruiting at a fraction of the cost.

We are looking for a CTO with IT-experience (back-end, app development, preferably but definitely IT project management). We are a small company that completed our Angel/seed round, with a major private equity player in Norway, and our product spec. We are getting ready for the next step, which is to fully develop our platform/service. As part of our spec, we have already developed an MVP idea which shows a lot of the features we picture in the full platform. We will have AI and machine learning features as well as API connections with CMSs for various educational organizations. We are in stealth mode so we do not have a public presence.

We are looking for a CTO who can help us plan and put together the entire platform/product/service from the technical side. We will use tech partners to build out the app, the APIs, and the user experience/branding. That is why we are looking for someone with enough experience in developing IT projects such as this to manage the entire process.

We have over 40% of our 1st round ($1.5MM) committed and anticipate having little problem funding the rest as most of our investors are/will come from our clients from a pre-existing 10 year old successful edtech company. Counselor will digitize that company into a new company. We need to complete a team (CTO & COO) to close funding. When we close we will get started full time, and until then there will be little work other than meeting investors and planning for ramping up.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
