This meetup group is an excellent way to share ideas and to meet other like-minded people. At my start-up, WishWantWear, we are in urgent need of a Hands on CTO and are hoping that someone here can make some recommendations

We are an exciting new fashion start-up and are looking to bring on board a hands-on CTO to help design and build our technology infrastructure.

The opportunity

In this role, you will be the software architect of our delicious website and supporting backend systems (order management, customer management et al possibly using an ERP)…from scratch. You will be hands-on and will contribute to the success of the business by building a robust, extensible and scaleable software. You will own our IT infrastructure and may also need to manage vendors/contractors to deliver the target architecture.

You will be the first technology member of our team and we promise that you will have the opportunity to significantly contribute to the future of the company!

About you:

You will have a passion for startups and (by some stretch of imagination) an interest in fashion!

You will be a self-starting, self-directing, hands-on individual who is creative and passionate about designing, developing, and implementing robust software applications, systems and services. You will be expected to work in a heterogeneous environment of different languages and technologies. You should have a solid background in the fundamentals of software development, and have a deep understanding of Java/C++ with experience in developing reasonably complex web applications and e-commerce websites.

Some basics:

- 7+ years of experience in building e-commerce websites and backend systems
- Proficient in Java/C++ or any other object oriented programming language
- Expertise in Javascript, with and without the aid of frameworks like Jquery.
- Record of using cutting edge technologies like HTML5 and CSS3 in rich-media applications and on mobile platform.
- Proficient in MySQL and server-side scripting languages like PHP, Python and Ruby.
- Knowledge of modern web practices (e.g. workarounds for cross-browser issues) for efficient user-experience
- All in all, you've created an entire web application (HTML to database) that is flexible, scales and performs well under load.
- A minimum of B.Tech, B.S in Computer Science or in a related field

If you know of anyone who meets this description, or indeed, if you are this person, please get in touch with us. We'd love to meet you/them.
