Ready to disrupt the status quo? Interested? Then read on.
I am seeking a fellow Co-Founder to join me in a life changing adventure as Chief Technology Officer in an equity split, of a new startup I call Rideable in the on-demand taxi/private hire space.
The startup is currently at ideation and concept stage, and heading full on into product development. Market validation is complete. The opportunity is very very exciting and feedback has been positive.
Importantly I am seeking a Co-Founder to augment and bring technological chops to the table.
Transport is in trouble, augmented by the cost of living and soaring costs. The transport market has failed to deliver for riders and commuters. The overall transport market which does include ride hailing apps like Uber, is heavily saturated with lots of global players, but overall, the operating model have stayed the same. Regular commuters are faced with mutliple hits; costs of trains and public transport are soaring, with service delivery very poor outside of London. Users of 1st generation on-demand apps like Uber, Lyft etc..face unpredictable surge pricing, fares, legal disputes and battles with lawmakers. Outside of London, a lot of 1st generation on-demand hail apps simply do not exist.
The concept of TaaS 2.0 is focused on an app (on-demand delivery), but with a very big change to the operating model used by similar brands like Uber. The target market is heavily focused on Gen-Z and I have a clear road map ahead for how this concept will grow.
It is all about the long term!
The role: Chief Technology Officer
The CTO should be experienced in mobile application development: iOS and Android, backend and frontend development. You should ideally be a strategic thinker, an effective communicator, and an expert in technological development in particular in the app/mobile space.
Experience in startups or technology businesses is preferred, as this is not a typical 9 to 5 monday to friday role. Any experience in the transport or travel space would be greatly appreciated, but skillsets in the cloud, as-a-Service and app space would be fantastic too.
General Responsibilities: a general guide.
- Setting a technological vision and how it will be used.
- Ensuring that resources meet our short and long-term needs.
- Plan for recruitment of team members to assist in product development.
- Creating product timelines for development and deployment ahead of launch.
- Making executive decisions on our behalf mapping out future technological requirements.
- Assisting in raising finance/investment and using such investment to set budgets and time frames.
The nitty gritty bit:
The role will start as a remote only role, at first but that could change as our journey progresses. Such conversations could be had down the line about location. The CTO would get a Founders Agreement, and a healthy share of equity befitting a fellow Co-Founder, along with the usual protections afforded founders of startups.
Salary would follow after investment or revenue generation. So the successful CTO would have to be comfortable with equity only for a time.
I am seeking someone passionate, willing to join me on this journey and disrupt forever how we think of transport in the modern globalised world.
I am open to teams/zoom call and then see how things go there. I don't like a formal recruiting hr approach to someone I would consider a fellow Co-Founder in Rideable, so i'm open to a social meet too.
