Pozíció leírása / Job description

The Role

Our partner needs an experienced technical leader capable of both managing a growing technical team facing technological and organisational challenges, as well as being a key member of the management team. You are passionate about people development and culture, technology, technical strategy and business development. You obsess about data and metrics to support your decisions, can clearly articulate your reasoning and influence stakeholders when there are conflicting or competing priorities.

As a CTO you will be responsible for defining and executing the overall technology strategy, working in tight collaboration with the CPO. This will include setting a clear vision and communicating it across the company, developing a sharp strategy and turn it into quarterly plans and deliveries, identifying and executing the right investments in both technology and people.

You will have to organise a team of experts with generalist as well as specialists in Backend Engineering, Frontend Engineering, Mobile Engineering, Quality Engineering, Infrastructure Engineering, Data and Architecture to ensure an efficient, effective and sustainable use of our resources, clearly positioning the tech organisation inside our partners organisation as a key driver for business growth. As part of this work, you will have to identify areas where technical debt is preventing from expressing the full potential of the team, and drive the right investments to pay back this debt while continuing to support and evolve the product that so many users love to interact with daily.

You are able to think systemically and see the big picture, while also focusing and going deep on specific topics where needed.

To support you in this journey you will rely both on the local management team as well as on the Global Markets P&T leadership team which will provide you with expertise, tools and resources to help you move the company in the right direction.

Your main responsibilities will be focused around 4 key areas.

  • Constantly evolve the organisational setup following both business needs as well as learning from the rest of the industry, including other companies
  • As a consequence of building the right organisation, coaching and leading managers is more important than investing your time in reviewing pull requests and writing code. In this role you are expected to understand very clearly where your time is best spent, while making sure you can safely rely on the people you delegate to.

Contribution to the Business

  • Understand the business and its key metrics and mechanics
  • Strong member of the leadership team, contributing to decisions that expand well beyond the technical field
  • Negotiate, manage and operate a significant budget in order to grow the team, scale platforms and invest in relevant technology for the day to day business operations
  • Able to educate the rest of the leadership team about the role of technology as well as the importance of investing in technology to ensure long term sustainability of the businesa
  • Actively participate in processes that will lead to partnership or M&A operations with other companies

Contribution Beyond your Country

  • Actively participate in discussions and exchanges with the CTO community in Global Markets
  • Actively share presentations and Insights with the broader tech community in the organisation
  • Provide significant contributions to discussions around key pillars of the Company's Tech Strategy
  • Represent our partner in conferences and events from the tech community both in Adevinta Hungary and abroad
