Position Description

We're on a mission to transform industries globally, through new venture creation and building a new, scalable model for startup investing and corporate innovation that works. Highline BETA helps forward-thinking enterprises innovate faster and co-create new ventures in the areas of FinTech, InsurTech, Digital Health and CPG.

As a New Venture CTO you will help build an innovative batch of new ventures from startup co-creation to venture-backed companies.

Responsibilities

You will be working on a number of different ventures and projects, at various stages of their lifecycle from idea generation to launch. You'll be driving the early technical development of client ventures and co-creations, as well as running validation tests and experiments. 

  • Work with Highline BETA's team and corporate clients to create new projects, products and ventures
  • Be very hands on with everything technical, from a landing page to architecture; from hacking together prototypes to launching MVPs and beyond
  • Participate in validation and customer development work ("getting out of the building")

Early on, you won't be managing a team (of developers, dev ops, etc.) -- you are the tech team. Imagine starting a new company with a product person and a designer; you're the 3rd piece of the puzzle.

Qualifications

You're perfect for this role if you:

  • Have a strong interest in Highline BETA's mission and corporate innovation
  • Are comfortable "hacking things together quickly" and getting your hands dirty
  • Technology and platform agnostic
  • Have shipped product in the past (web & mobile)
  • Have experience working in startups and on multiple projects at the same time
  • Believe in a Lean, iterative, experiment-driven approach
  • Are a versatile self-starter (as you will be working on and managing multiple projects, ideas, ventures, etc. at the same time)

Qualifications:

  • Minimum 3¬†years of relevant development experience (@ at startup)
  • Experience working with small product teams (product + designer) to execute and ship product
  • Experience building/coding a wide breadth of products/features/etc.
  • A drive to get better every single day and always looking for opportunities to learn

Company Description

Highline BETA is a startup co-creation company that partners with leading corporations to launch new ventures in the areas of FinTech, InsurTech, Digital Health and CPG.
