CTO / Tech Lead

Salary Competitive

Worked as a tech lead before and ready to take the leap and grow with an award-winning and fast-scaling startup ready for international expansion?

Bower’s vision is to make recycling a rewarding no-brainer and create a world free from trash. We’re aiming to become the first impact tech unicorn in Sweden, helping +1B consumers make sustainable choices by rewarding them for doing the right thing.

We are growing at a rapid rate and you will be a driving force in enabling our growth even further. Since our launch in 2019, we’ve grown to over 250 thousand users with customers in five countries (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, United States) with several more market entries to come. 

Are you up for the challenge?

Are you ready for the challenge of building our technology for the upcoming 1-3 years enabling high-scale growth to international markets?

You will work closely with the management team in translating great visions to physical app features. You will lead the tech development and the tech team to ensure high scalability and performance.

Do you have what it takes?

  • We’re a startup so pure roles such as CTO / VP of Engineering / Product Owner / Tech Lead are really not for us. Instead, we’re looking for the mash of them all. Someone who will take responsibility for the tech part as well as growing the team. 

  • You have a genuine interest in consumer app solutions and are passionate about changing a traditional industry.

  • You’ve got experience from working with companies in their early stages with a strong entrepreneurial culture, and are eager to join a fast-scaling startup in its international expansion journey.

  • You’ve previously worked as Tech Lead.

  • You’ve got at least 3 years of experience as a full-stack developer.

  • You're familiar with our tech stack: PostgreSQL, MongoDB, NodeJs, React, React Native, GraphQL, Amazon S3, iOS, Android, JMeter, Redis, Kue, Mocha, REST, Realm, Fastlane.

  • These words tickle you: large-scale data, consumer insights, crowdsourcing, machine learning, agile processes, coaching...

  • You can plan for a future ahead, ensuring great scalability – while at the same time being pragmatic, understanding our business goals and not over-doing it by building a high-tech rocket ship just for the sake of it.

  • You're someone who can communicate highly technical and complex issues in an easy and comprehendible way.

  • You’re a person with integrity.

  • You're good with people.

  • You’re fluent in English (and preferably also in Swedish).

Why we think you should join us...

As a Product Owner / Tech Lead at Bower, you’ll be part of an award-winning team passionate about creating a global recycling movement. 

We believe that a brilliant person with the right ambition can really leverage their time at Bower. We are growing fast, and with us, so will you. Most importantly, we are looking for a candidate who is eager to develop Bower as a company to a world-leading position. You will be one of the leading individuals making this happen.

Bower’s vision is to make recycling a rewarding no-brainer and create a world free from trash. We’re aiming to become the first impact tech unicorn in Sweden, helping +1B consumers make sustainable choices by rewarding them for doing the right thing. We’re a bold and visionary, yet down-to-earth and heart-centered, tech company based in Stockholm. Our mission is to reduce the number of packaging that ends up as trash in nature and increase recycling rates by giving all packaging a value in monetary terms – ”pant” – just like with PET bottles and cans in Sweden. That’s why we’ve developed a world-unique mobile app that rewards recycling of all consumer packaging at regular recycling bins. We are first-movers with global customers such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Mondelez, currently operating in Sweden and in USA. We have a revolutionarily scalable business model where the only thing we need to do to scale up to other markets is to pinpoint the GPS coordinates of already existing recycling stations. In cases where we lack this data, consumers upload the stations themselves. We've been on the top lists of both App Store and Google Play in Sweden since we launched in August 2019. Bower is an award-winning startup: - Winners of Norrsken People’s Choice Award 2019 - Winners of Carnegie’s prize Future Entrepreneurs 2019 - Winners of PwC’s prize Social Entrepreneurs of the Year 2018 - Winners of Nordea’s Largest Impact Within 5 Years Check out our rebranding film to get a feel for us: https://youtu.be/7eUZuN49LV8
