Co-Founder and CTO
at Retirehub.com in Massachusetts-Boston
We are seeking a talented, hands-on CTO to help take our Internet Company to the next level. We need an entrepreneur with extensive technical expertise who will make strategic decisions about architecture, approach and technologies. He or she must have broad-based application development experience and the judgment to balance decisions against user experience, cost, and implementation challenges.
As for specific technical skills: profound knowledge of .Net is crucial, along with good UX. In addition, strong database scaling experience is a huge plus. Demonstrated ability to apply Web development best practices with respect to scalability, security, usability, load-time, and basic search engine optimization is also important. The CTO will make substantive contributions to the development process beyond simply managing it. He or she will also be deeply involved in product strategy, feature prioritization and business strategy.
