I am helping a booming E-commerce business in Bangkok to recruit for a CTO to expand and grow their tech environment.

The company

Set up within the past 10 years, they are a rapidly growing E-commerce business and are looking to hire their first full time CTO, based from the Bangkok office. With plans to become the first true Thai Unicorn, they have ambitious plans and need a similarly ambitious character. Based out of Bangkok, you will be responsible for an initial team of 80 with plans for you to grow this gradually. You will receive stock options that will be worth a lot more in a few years - with the potential to make you a millionaire. The team consists of everything you would think of in a modern business in this industry - a large number of front and Back End Developers, QA, IT Support as well as Data and BI.

The business has recently gone through a round of funding and has managed to raise tens of millions of Dollars in order to expand the company. They are now looking to rival the largest brands across Asia and become one of the biggest hitters. The aim is to merge their online focus of mobile and social with the latest trends and data and to truly modernise the company.

The role:

You will need to be willing to take on a challenge and really make your mark to overhaul the current tech environment. As it stands, it is predominantly a React Front End and Node.js Back End and you will need to make decisions in how to change this in the best and most effective manner moving forward (where applicable). They are looking for a creative and ambitious leader who has come from either a well-known E-commerce company or an interesting tech organisation - ideally cutting edge!

You will be responsible for the strategy, leadership and management of the tech platforms as well as having a huge say in overall strategic direction. As well as contributing to the direction of the products, you will need to make important business decisions regarding the team as well as the technology stack used moving forward. Growing relationships both internally and out with the business is another key area that will help you thrive in this role.

In this position, you will be compensated with a very strong salary as well as exceptional stock options, fully paid travel expense to facilitate your move over to Bangkok as well as assistance with setting up yours and your family's lives over there.

This is a rare opportunity for someone who is willing to make a big change in their life, with huge rewards and a chance to help shape one of the next big hitters in Asia.
