We’re looking to expand our team with a smart, talented and dedicated


Chief Technology Officer (CTO).


Are you passionate about great technology that provides the backbone for improving people’s lives? Do you love challenges? Have you overcome the odds more than once in your personal and professional life? Do you have the battle scars to prove it? If you can answer those questions with a resounding yes, then read on – the person we’re describing might be you.


As CTO, you lead the tech strategy for and lead our company’s largest team. You have profound knowledge of our full stack – from C to React – and the overall tech landscape. As such, you set the technological agenda for and implement it with your team. You have extensive leadership experience and understand that your success relies on your ability to inspire others. You listen, consider different points of view and make the tough calls no one else wants to make. You ensure that development efforts go hand in hand with product, marketing, design and sales. As part of our management team, you play an important part in developing’s strategy and organizational structure.


You set the tone for how your team works: you nurture a culture of experimentation and learning, and you value agility and reliability in equal measure. You have a progressive mindset when it comes to technological solutions; you are a critical thinker yet open-minded. You deeply appreciate the requirements of our business and our users, and lead your team to value the fulfilment of these needs above all else. You want team members who enjoy both what they do and why they do it, and you provide a constructive work environment that allows software developers to flourish.


You enjoy an entrepreneurial work setting and fast-paced product cycles. Because no two days are ever the same in our office, you may find yourself working on a number of projects at any given time. We’re looking for people with a curious mind who thrive in such situations and aren’t scared of long to-do lists.


We value enthusiasm, reliability, intelligence, attention to detail and a ‘get-sh*t-done’ attitude. And we expect you to have an insatiable drive to make things better. You’ll also need a university degree and excellent command of German and English; any other Swiss language is an advantage. And be prepared to learn snippets of Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan and even Liechtensteinisch (yes, that’s a thing) during and after work hours.


What we offer


We offer a competitive salary, a great office in the heart of Zurich, free flow of fresh fruits, numerous benefits and 30 co-workers who’ve got brains, looks and infamous Nerf gun skills. And last but not least, the chance to work on one of the largest and fastest-growing online ventures in Switzerland!
