About the Role

We’re looking for an outstanding architecture and data focused technologist to join Unbiased as our first CTO.

This is a super exciting time for our Engineering team - we’re now operating in two established markets, with three at early stages and three brand new markets to explore and build product fit for.

  • To champion the importance and principles of developing clean, high quality, high performing, secure code
  • Zoomability - you never take your eye off the big picture, but you can focus in on the detail when you need to
  • To provide technical direction to enable delivery of data solutions in a complex environment
  • Experience of progressive delivery management and quality practices
  • A laser focus on building products our users will love and strong commercial acumen

What makes us different?

We are an ever-growing business so therefore attracting, engaging and retaining top talent is at the core of everything we do. We think our behaviours sum us up pretty well: act lean, be collaborative, think differently and learn from mistakes. 

We have weekly bake-offs (good luck trying to get out of it!), poker nights and team lunches. But more importantly we have opportunities for growth, development and career progression.
