Full-timeTech Lead, CTO (Future Builders)

Founders Factory – Posted by FoundersFactory London, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

?Hey, We're Founders Factory

Founders Factory is unlike anywhere else. We're a corporate backed incubator and accelerator that takes a unique approach to business creation. Born out of Founders Forum, the leading global network of entrepreneurs, we're at the very centre of the technology ecosystem.

?? We’re on a mission to create a repeatable and reliable methodology to build truly innovative startups that will define the future.
Our incubator creates entirely new products from scratch and turns promising concepts into prototypes, and ultimately an MVP, validating decisions commercially along the way to attract a founding team that can spin out into a fully-fledged business. And you know what, we're also officially Europe's Hottest Startup Accelerator according to the Europas!! ??

❓Who Are We?
FutureBuilders is a virtual academy for software developers. We help people start new careers in tech by training them in the skills employers value most. This isn’t your typical ‘coding school’ - students work in teams solving real problems with help from a tutor, and we actively help them into their first jobs with great hiring companies. Our vision is to provide affordable, risk-free vocational training for all.

If you love developing software, and you want to open up opportunities for others, this may be the mission for you.

What we’re making:
An experiential learning platform built on top of Atlassian suite/GitHub APIs, AWS Cloud9 and other developer tools.
A web app for managing students’ training paths, calendar scheduling, and for communications between hiring partners and learners.
The initial course content: a ‘Fundamentals’ course (series of progressively harder coding challenges), plus modules for the ‘Professional’ course (skeleton projects, along with instructions for what to build).

?The Ideal Person For This Job:
Has previous experience building developer tools or products aimed at technical users;
Has a high degree of user empathy and actively seeks to test, learn and iterate based on user feedback;
Is motivated to found a startup business, and able to dedicate themselves full-time to the project;
Startup experience is a plus, as is experience working with distributed teams;
Is well-connected to the developer community and able to attract the right engineering team post-spinout.

? Role Responsibilities:
Take charge of platform development, owning the engineering budget and making key decisions on technical architecture.
Deliver the MVP (prototype), enabling us to start serving our early customers.
Build the engineering function by hiring the right people and embedding a great working culture.
Become a member of the initial founding team (with founder-level equity) when the company spins out in 6 months’ time.

This is your rare chance to contribute across the full business spectrum to become a founder in the future.
Growth: Work with and meet exceptional talent. Learn faster than you ever have before.
Autonomy: Freedom to execute, build businesses, not just products.
Health and Wellness: Comprehensive extended health care coverage, standing desks, Yoga, and Stretch O’Clock.
Office Meals: Catered lunches, unlimited breakfast, healthy snacks, freshly ground coffee and Paul’s Irish Bar.
Founder-level equity on spinoff.
25 days annual paid leave.

Please note: we have an overwhelming number of applications and will do our best to get back to you within 72 hours if you fit the bill.
