I'm looking for my first engineer and CTO. This is a full time, long term position so please only apply if you're willing to work 30+ hours/week for me. Also, I strongly prefer someone in my timezone, so North or Latin America.
The CTO will need to design the architecture for the overall system, help write the first version and will be responsible for recruiting and managing the rest of the engineering team on Upwork.
You should have very strong backend skills (Java, Ruby, Python, I don't have a strong preference), and you should be able to hire & manage mobile developers (iOS and Android) and to validate the quality of their technical decisions and their code.
