Technical Director, gt.school (Remote) - $640,000/year USD

Company: Crossover for Work
Location: Portland
Posted on: May 15, 2022

Job Description:

Crossover is the world's #1 source of full-time remote jobs. Our clients offer top-tier pay for top-tier talent. We're recruiting this role for our client, gt.school. Have you got what it takes?

Are you an accomplished software architect who is hitting a ceiling in your company? Are you looking for the next step, perhaps a bridge to a high-level CTO role? If so, GT School is looking to build the next generation of educational software for gifted and talented ("GT") children, and we have a role for you!

We are GT School, and we are going to change gifted and talented lives forever. We believe educational software has become stale, and gifted children are missing out on enrichment that could change the trajectory of their future. We want to make the next generation of educational software for the top 10% of young learners.

This role requires you to make long-term, strategic technical architecture decisions for our portfolio of educational products. You will review specs from Product CTOs and manage a specific portfolio of products. We're creating an educational software metaverse, and your decisions should last over a 10-year horizon.

If you're deeply technical - and you believe you have a great sense of where technology is trending and what it can do for gifted education - then we want to hear from you!

What You Will Be Doing
Create full specs: learn about problems facing users and then make important technical and long-term architectural decisions using logic, data, and domain knowledge
Coaching: provide written, technical, and actionable feedback to authors of technical specifications to improve the quality of their work

What You Won't Be Doing
Managing an engineering team's day-to-day work
Making decisions without careful logic or showing your work
Speaking to customers

Technical Director Key Responsibilities

This role delivers a simplified product architecture via a series of important technical decisions to define a long-term roadmap for a next-generation educational software product and its features

Basic Requirements
Experience as the most senior technical design decision-maker for a software engineering organization of at least 150 people
15+ years of experience making important architecture and design decisions on software projects
2+ years of experience writing production-quality code

About Gt.school

gt.school is a stealth educational startup in Austin, Texas, the center of educational innovation in the US. We are building an online community focusing on the most underserved customer base in US education - gifted and talented (GT) kids. We are a remote first company who hires globally via Crossover.

There is so much to cover for this exciting role, and space here is limited. Hit the Apply button if you found this interesting and want to learn more. We look forward to meeting you!
