traveltree is looking for a CTO/Co-founder with the creativity, tenacity and passion to help create what we hope to be the biggest travel social media company across the globe. We're a young team, so we're looking for someone interested in getting in on the ground floor to help shape the culture of the company. The team is based in Reading and hoping to move into office space in the coming months, however, candidates do not have to be based in Reading.

About traveltree
traveltree is a travel social media-based community. It connects the amazing people you meet while traveling, through an interactive map feature,
whilst also allowing a user to see the whole community. This allows great ways to use your friends to explore locally, save money, and reconnect.

traveltree's feed is especially unique and something that we rarely share the concept of! For this reason, all information will be released in a meeting once an NDA has been signed.

Our CEO Tom built a working prototype while he was traveling and trilled it on over 400 backpackers and travelers across 3 different continents.
Using this feedback we have been able to create the perfect app for the backpacking community and have great confidence due to the amazing but constructive feedback.

About the role
As CTO you will be expected to transform the concept and designs into a clean, fully functional product. You will be in charge of the whole technical side of the company, working alongside the co-founders to transform this vision into a reality.

We feel the ideal candidate is a mid-level developer that is a coding guru wanting to be part of something new and exciting. We expect you to get your hands dirty and be brave enough to head this whole thing on your own. If you don't know the answers you will have to break it down and work them out for yourself. We hope to find someone who would be comfortable and eager to accept this challenge.

Expected soft and hard skills include:
Be able to develop in android, IOS, web
Solid front and backend dev
Experience integrating with 3rd party APIs
Comfortable translating tech language into laymans terms and vice versa
Ability to lead and recruit a team (It's just you at the start but eventually you will have a team)
Passion to create things from scratch
The ability to break complex problems down into simple solutions.

Nice to have
Travel sector experience and LOVE for travel.

Qualities we value
Integrity - what you say is what you do
Creativity
Passion
Camaraderie- enjoy working with others to achieve a common goal.
Enjoyment for the work and task ahead
