CTO for Danish Startup with Important Climate Mission

Salary Competitive

We are looking for a stand-out individual to join us in bringing our growing startup to the next level. As our new CTO and part of the management team, you will use your previous startup and innovation experience to set out a technical strategy that includes maintaining a reliable product, while scaling to new markets and looking for opportunities to lead the way in digitizing and automating processes in existing markets.

Our ideal candidate is a hands-on, pragmatic software engineer at heart. You love to get your hands dirty and jump into both front- and back-end or infrastructure code when the need arises. Your strong experience in various programming languages, frameworks, databases and cloud infrastructure will be a great advantage in our upcoming stack transition.

You will be part of the exciting and at times challenging journey of a growing company - initially small and with pioneering spirit - later with your own larger team internally or externally, depending on what the future brings. We need you to be ambitious on behalf of Frame but also realistic with regard to the limited resources of everyday life. Last but not least - you are a team player and a caring manager for your employees on the journey.



Several years of experience in technical roles in organizations of similar size with growing duties and responsibilities.

  • Experience from working in an early-stage tech start-up company

  • Extensive experience in working with NodeJS (ExpressJS and React)

  • Experience with multiple other programming languages and frameworks

  • Extensive experience working with relational databases

  • In-depth knowledge of cloud infrastructure (AWS or GCP)

  • Experience in Java Spring (Alfresco and Backbone Marionette JS) would be a plus

  • Comfortable in leading and being part of a fast growing and changing organization

  • Up-to-date knowledge of technological trends and industry standards/best practice

  • A track record of recruiting, hiring and growing technical talents
