This is a unique opportunity for a strategic, curious and creative engineer to take ownership of the Company’s current and future technology. This is a stepping stone opportunity toward becoming a CTO.
You will be responsible for the on-going development, operations and support of our two production platforms. The first is our proprietary hyperlocal paid search management system. This application enables us to rapidly create and manage exceptionally effective hyperlocal paid search advertising campaigns on Google and Yahoo. It operates on the LAMP stack. The second is our unique system for lead and campaign management, reporting and billing. We’ve built this system on Microsoft SQL Server and Cold Fusion, and continue to evolve it with real-time mapping, dynamic landing pages, and other key functionality. You will collaborate closely with our entire team, including paid search, operations, finance, client service, and in-house call center. You will also be part of our strategic planning as we continue to grow.
You will report directly to the Company’s managing partner, and serve as a member of the Company’s senior staff. The Company partner to whom you will report is an experienced entrepreneur and operations executive. This position offers a special opportunity to learn from him as you directly help the Company grow. You will direct and oversee the work of our trusted local development partners, along with our relationships with companies providing cloud-based applications on which we rely. You will have the important opportunity to lead every aspect of our Company’s technology future, including the evolution of our legacy Microsoft-based application.
You work hard, have a strong service orientation and appreciate the opportunity to meet users’ needs. You value the importance of data in running growing businesses, and continually look for opportunities to leverage technology to interpret it. You enjoy working both with others, as well as getting work done on your own. You have an extraordinary attention to detail and system reliability. You are curious, and possess that sixth sense that tells you something just isn’t working as it should. You are a creative problem solver. When searching for solutions, you think “how, what and when”, and collaborate to quickly develop and assess various approaches. You are highly organized, and can both structure project work, and ensure that it stays on track. Most importantly, you approach everything you do with a clear bias for action.
