Take Note is hiring

CTO / Technical Director

You will be working for Take Note as CTO / Technical Director

Take Note

8 years ago, when we set up Take Note, you associated typing with old fashioned type-writers, typing pools of people and, men dictating over the shoulders of their secretaries (Mad Men). Then, it was pictures of people with head-sets on smiling at you from a call centre (The Office). The industry was screaming for a modern day makeover and that is where we came in - all laptops and legs...hello boys!

HQ is delightfully located in Borough, opposite the bustling food market making it a very palatable place to work for starters. Now for the meaty bit;

We have been outsourcing our tech for the last 18 months and the beast is growing and growing. We are chomping at the bit to bring it in-house and so are looking for someone full-time to come in and quite literally ‘take the bull by the horns’.

A CTO / Technical Director is where we want to begin, so if you think you’d be interested in working for a young fun and friendly typing company, there is a lot to be getting on with.

The Role

We need someone to start work immediately on our current ‘portal’ - a work flow / file transfer / bookings / monster of a management system that has been built in PHP, MySQL, JavaScript & jQuery + more. It currently needs integration with Xero as we start to scale up the business. You might want to start your own version from scratch or build onto the current system.

Other projects include; an on-line recruitment academy, our bespoke transcription software, APP, API and website. All jQuery, PHP and more.

You will manage everything technical and be in charge of the company’s technical strategy implementing the business ideas that we have. Passionate about great ideas and innovation in the marketplace you will need to work with the teams whose problems all need solving whilst keeping up/ahead of the industry as technology disrupts it. You’ll be in charge of recruiting your junior too.
