Product CTO, GT School (Remote) - $320,000/year USD

Job ID: 4645

Description

Are you a technical expert who has built amazing architecture for games, but now craves a role where you could use your skills for a more meaningful cause? Do you wonder why educational organizations still follow teaching methods from ancient history and miss out on the most advanced technologies? If you want to be one of the pioneers to change that, we believe we have something for you.

This role is essential to the success of our revolution. You will build the education metaverse by architecting a portfolio of products. Your focus will be on making strategic technical decisions instead of worrying about business, legal, or cost-related details.

  • Coaching: Reviewing content regarding data structures, APIs, and module breakdowns, and providing the authors with written, technical, and actionable feedback to improve the quality of their work

What you will NOT be doing

  • You will not be making any decisions based primarily on saving money. This role makes strategic technical design decisions.
  • You will not be participating in daily scrum meetings, making low-level decisions, or debugging. This role provides clear leadership for our engineering organization to execute on.

Key Responsibilities

Building simple, yet elegant architecture for our adaptive and mastery-based education applications through important technical decisions that will drive our product roadmaps for the next 3-5 years
