Who are they?

Creative Dock is a company builder. They create innovative projects for their clients from the ground up and launch them on the market. Among their “offspring” are more than 50 start-ups, which include Zonky, Mutumutu, Pointa, SingleCase, or HoppyGo.

Besides founding new start-ups, the company focuses on rebuilding processes and customer journeys in big corporations. They currently operate in 10 European countries employing roughly 450 people. The company develops new projects in several business sectors – they specialize in fintech, insurtech, eHealth, p2p sharing, and publishing among other things.

They believe in managing as much work as they can in-house as opposed to excessive outsourcing. Each project has its own team supported by in-house delivery teams (IT, UX, big data, blockchain, innovations, digital marketing, content, branding, and advertising). Thanks to that, they are able to remain in startup mode and execute the steps quickly without time-consuming processes.

They’re not fond of empty words but rather devote their energy to honest work. Their goal is to expand to other European countries, so they can offer their digital projects and scale the products fast across the continent.

Job description

At Creative Dock, we build digital products and services, but also digitize companies, grow their revenue, generate new value, and create impactful business models 💣.

Who we are looking for 👀:
We are looking for a CTO for our new IT team. There are plenty of validated “smart” projects on our table. Take ownership of one of them, join the team, and build a working solution from scratch. We know you’ve always wanted to do this 🔥!

Typically, each Creative Dock project has a Project Lead, who represents the product from a business perspective. As CTO, you will be the Project Lead’s partner in crime, overseeing the tech aspects of the project.

About the project 👇:
Creative Dock has come up with a creative and innovative product for travel management giant to encourage employees in corporations as well as SMEs to make sustainable choices in their day-to-day activities. In the current phase of the project, the team is focused on validating the concept of the product and preparing for the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) launch. Want to be part of an enthusiastic team and disrupt the traditional travel industry? You’re in the right place.

  • Search and design the most suitable solutions with emphasis on technological efficiency, safety and the resulting operating price
  • Ensure cooperation across the entire IT team (backend and frontend developers, data analysts, DevOps) and efficiently manage it
  • Take an active part in the development itself – redesign of the core backend components
  • Understand the whole product not only in terms of implementation, but also deployment, testing, monitoring and operation
  • Preferably have knowledge of backend development with overlap into frontend and DevOps skills
  • Understand the product from landing page to the whole ecosystem
  • IoT protocols and platforms know-how is a big plus
