Rockstar CTO Wanted at Award Winning Startup

at Local Spoon in London

About Local Spoon:

What started as a simple academic project has turned into a revolutionary platform in a multi-billion pound industry, with unlimited potential for growth and innovation.

Local Spoon is a food tech startup founded by two young entrepreneurs, that saw an opportunity to connect restaurants with local customers and solve the biggest problems for each.

Restaurants can attract their diners when they most need them and use Local Spoon to reward and build loyalty. For users like you and I, Local Spoon is the simplest way to not only save both money and time, but also be rewarded for doing so.

We’ve won some awards and key partners along the way:

• Local Spoon is the winner of the Lloyds Banking People’s Choice 2016 award with over 1700 votes received from students across London;

• Empowered by PayPal, Local Spoon users can easily purchase any offer available in their proximity directly on Local Spoon App;

• Local Spoon is one of the NACUE Varsity Pitch Finalists in November 2016;

Local Spoon is one of the finalist startups in the Sirius Programme, a highly reputable accelerator in the UK sponsored by the Department of International Trade. The company has been put forward to their investment committee and pending final confirmation to join the programme. If you are international professional working in the UK, they may offer support. in obtaining a UK visa for members of the our team.


Why We’re Hiring:

At this point we have validated our ideas through building a proof of concept and functional MVP. This has been done through outsourcing technical development and bootstrapping everything ourselves.

We are onboarding partners at a fast rate and have huge access to supply. Our partnerships and network give us access to tens of thousands of consumers ready to sign up and start purchasing.

We now need a Co-Founder and CTO who will take a key role in our team to help us complete Local Spoon V1 so we can iterate and officially launch ASAP.


About Us:

CEO - Has several years of experience working with small businesses in retail and hospitality. Now working full-time in Business Development for one of the world’s largest e-Commerce companies. Will be responsible for strategy and business development.

CMO - Has studied digital marketing and entrepreneurship extensively at UCL and worked with other tech startups in their early and growth phases. She recently joined Startupbootcamp as a Global Marketing and Social Media Specialist helping their international teams and other startups in the wider ecosystem, and building commercial partnerships. She will be responsible for all things branding and marketing related and she will also take care of operational duties at present.


About You:

Along with sharing our vision and our passion, our CTO will be responsible for making sure our technology strategy serves our business strategy and will oversee all technical aspects of the company.

The most important thing to us is that you are a great personal and cultural fit for us and that we can all see ourselves working together in 5 years time. Your skills and drive to learn are far more important to us than experience although that would also be great!

Please note that we are looking for a technical Co-Founder, not just a developer who will need to be managed by us day to day. It’s critical that you have the ability to think and act strategically and proactively. That you are able to grow with us and the company and can learn or delegate anything you may not be able to do.

You will have to be based in London as we need somebody very hands on who can (at least initially) meet up regularly and then work remotely at times. This is ideal for somebody who already has a job (as we do) but can dedicate enough time to help us get to launch time (ideally in 3-6 months max) at which point we would all hopefully be able to work on this full-time.


Responsibilities and Duties:

Work with other Co-Founders to establish the company’s technical vision and then lead all aspects of the company’s technological development. At this point you will wear many hats and be responsible for everything technical. As we grow, you will assist in hiring a technical team and will then manage them day to day.


What We Can Offer:

Sweat equity (negotiable depending on experience etc) and possibly a modest salary if necessary. As a Co-Founder, the reward is joining us on this exciting journey of helping build a business together. Ah, and have some fun!


Next Step:

We're open to meeting everybody for a coffee and a chat, so please message ASAP! Even if you just have some friendly advice :)

Please include your LinkedIn, CV etc so we can get a little idea of who you are and how you can fit in.

Thanks and speak soon!
