This is a unique opportunity to join our team as a CTO.
Definitely, coding is meritorious – but your leadership, drive, values, attitude to new things, and your experience in tech & mobile app development projects are of more value than extensive coding abilities.
Together with the 2 founders, you will be part of a truly unique journey from the very start, actively shaping the creation of the Storka mobile application as well as the development of a startup that will positively improve the mental & physical wellbeing of millions of men & women across the globe and their future babies! You will be an important part of this journey and as part owner of the company you will create something no one ever built.
If this gives you goosebumps - keep on reading, as this journey might be a great match for your next stage in life!
We are looking for someone who’s curious, independent, open-minded, and innovative - like the rest of the team. Ideally, you have hands-on experience from working for an early-stage startup and from developing a mobile application, or maybe you have always had an ambition of doing so in the future and have an entrepreneurial mindset.
Have you built products or mobile apps from scratch before? Awesome! Since we are a small team, this role will be very hands-on and you will work very operative with the development.
Maybe you also have experience with team management and leadership? Great. Our goal is to expand our team with more developers, so setting up efficient dev processes along with managing a small team of engineers will be on your shoulders.
Our prototype is running and we are in process of collecting initial users' feedback to implement as improvements, before moving to the MVP development which you will be leading - it's your turn to help us bring our app to the wide world!
Your main focus will be to lead the technical development of our mobile application, with an immediate focus on working on the MVP that we aim to release this year.
As a CTO, you will be making executive technology-related decisions on behalf of the company, including managing a technology budget and making investments to align the company with their vision for its technological needs. We will offer you creative freedom, room for experimentation, and let you implement your ideas. We already have a few ideas for our UX, UI and features but we cannot wait to hear your innovative input for an amazing user experience!
As a CTO you will be involved in the general company strategy and development of Storka, with among other things:
Drive technical strategy & roadmap
Lead mobile application architecture & technical framework

Hands-on leadership of technical teams across all functions

Multi-skilled with knowledge and/or experience in mobile app development, architecture, data collection/management, back/frontend, UX, etc.
Experienced in participating in all areas of product development from the idea stage, to development to launch
Prior experience with startups is a plus - interested in management, raising and scaling up the company
Interest in HealthTech & wellness and in Storka’s mission - you want to have a positive impact and you are enthusiastic about creating a new trend
5+ years in a relevant tech role
Financially tolerant to invest your time in future gains
We offer an equity package (vested over time) to officially become a part of the company, followed by a permanent salary once we receive funding
Opportunity to drive technical and product strategy, have real impact on a company
Become a key company player on a C-level, lead technical solutions, shape architecture
An entrepreneurial environment where you will influence the future, and really have the opportunity to help men & women on a large scale
A one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join a value-driven start-up with very high ambitions
Due to the current situation, we advise the team to work from home, but you have the opportunity if wished to work from a co-working space we have access to in Uppsala
Flexible working hours, remote work
Bootstrapping the whole work has taken us thousands of working hours besides financial investment over the last 1.5 years to develop an idea into a prototype.
It is expected from a member of the C-suite & shareholder to compensate for these efforts, mainly in the form of investing working hours and being fully implicated in the project.
The candidate needs a level of financial stability and can manage without a stable salary for some time during 2021 or has other sources of income, as the business is being set up and initial funding secured.
More financial details in addition to key figures about the company is available to discuss during initial meeting.
Please get in touch if you or someone you know might be interested.
We would love to get to know you!
