Are you the best software architect in your company? Can you identify patterns in complex systems and see ways to make them 10x simpler? Do you hate that you’re losing your technical edge because of increasing managerial responsibilities? If so, join us and you will create, rebuild, and re-architect a virtually endless supply of software products.

MELD is looking for a seasoned CTO to join our team. In this role, you will join a passionate and experienced team responsible for all of the important technical decisions on every product in our extensive portfolio of enterprise software solutions.

  • Strong leadership skills.

  • Facilitate communications and conflict resolution between various technology departments.

  • Be able to work with the QA team to guarantee the quality of the product.

  • Must have a high level understanding for key security needs.

  • Apply an exceptionally high-quality bar to the core technical design decisions - data structures, algorithms, architectural patterns, and the leverage of third-party implementations

  • Utilize other architects as force-multipliers, mentoring them by providing high-quality feedback on their work

  • Synthesize your decisions and designs into clear and structured written specs

What You Won’t Be Doing

  • Participating in daily scrum meetings or providing day-to-day direction to an engineering team

  • Performing code reviews, debugging, or investigating bugs and outages

Basic Requirements

  • At least 15 years of experience making important architecture and design decisions on software projects, such as the application of architecture design patterns or significant open source technologies

  • At least 2 years of experience as the decision-maker for design decisions involving the use of cloud computing services

  • Experience working as a senior technical leader whose technical design decisions measurably influenced a software development organization of at least 50 people

  • Ability to simplify complex ideas and communicate them in writing with clear, logical thinking

  • Basic understanding of Traditional finance or blockchain.
