Tech Lead / CTO to Klarity

Join us in the movement to end corruption
One in four people around the world pay a bribe to access public services. This systematic corruption undermines people’s trust in political- and economic systems, institutions, and leaders. People affected by corruption need help to take action and hold public officials accountable, without risking their lives. Klarity believes technology is the solution. Owned and funded by Norrsken Foundation, Klarity is building a platform that empowers and encourages whistleblowers. What Wikipedia did for the sharing of knowledge, Klarity will do for corruption.

Job description
We are looking for an experienced and driven Tech Lead / aspiring CTO to join our team. You will work directly with our CEO, overseeing all aspects of the company’s technology operations. You will be a key driver of Klarity and have operational mandate to shape our systems. Klarity’s journey has only just begun; today we are a small and tight cross-functional team of four. Klarity will grow and evolve with its users over time, and as lead developer you have a great professional opportunity to develop into our future CTO.

Our system is currently composed of a set of microservices running as Docker containers on Google Cloud. We experiment a lot; in order to facilitate this we use event sourcing and CQRS. Backend services are mostly written in Kotlin, and we use Node.js and React on the frontend. We use continuous deployment for most of our services and are dedicated to an agile work methodology.

Key qualities
We are looking for a person excited by the incredible impact that our code could have on billions of lives.

  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit, and have been part of a growing startup or fast-moving agile company.
  • You are a team builder with a proven track record of recruiting and leading teams.
  • You are a strong communicator, both within the team and with external stakeholders.
  • You are passionate about software development and enjoy product development.
  • You want to learn, grow and elevate those around you, and are the kind of person others want to work with daily.

We respect that our applicants will be positioned in existing high-profile roles elsewhere. All applicant’s profiles will be kept strictly confidential, before, during and after your correspondence with us.
