Startup CTO

About us and the role

For helloSkotty that has left port and has set sail, we are looking for a full stack technical co founder CTO to join our team. The quote above is one live by in the startup world.

A little about us:

We embarked on this mission about 9 months ago, we are a team of 4 based in Loenen aan de Vecht, with an external crew of another 8 people abroad. We are in the personal management services via Artificial Intelligence with bot’s. Our first product helloSkotty (available for Android and iOs) has seen a glorious and very promising MVP launch with thousands of beta users in over 25 countries.

We are looking for

is this you?

if so, please read on :)

Full stack developer that is very up to speed with:

The basic Android and iOs app kits, React native, Google Firebase, Amazon stack ‘Lambda’ ‘Connect’ and ‘Lex” a little Twilio (and messagebird) as service providers (note: on the last two  we might migrate to other solutions for that in the longer run). Since we at present our service works closely with telco functionality, a background and or extensive knowledge in telecommunication technics is a definite advantage.
