Chief Architect

Permanent  |  Competitive  |    |  Dubai

Leadership  •  DevOps

A stealth start-up, so stealth they don't even have a company name, are looking for a Chief Architect to join the already growing team. With the most significant amount of funding we have ever seen (over $1billion dollars available), the company are looking to self-generate an entire economy, and it's one of the most exciting positions we have seen for a long time. 

The very high net worth visionary behind the venture, has two core visions:

  1. Diversify the Dubai economy. The Dubai economy is traditionally seen as corporate and rigid, with many financial services institutions and investment banks. This organisation are looking to self-generate a tech community to rival that of San Francisco, London and Berlin. This is an opportunity to be a fundamental part of the first mover in this community. 
  2. Fill a gap in the online shopping market. Believe it or not, there is a huge anomaly between the number of people online and the number of sales generated online, and advertising spend in the Dubai economy. The second vision is to build an online shopping company to essentially be the Amazon of the UAE. 

The company will have two core areas of focus. One is to build a software platform for all new Dubai tech ventures to build upon, essentially further generating the community. The second is to build an e-commerce platform to create an awesome experience for online shopping in the UAE which will then roll out across the whole middle east. 

The company have huge growth plans which are unprecedented, with growth from 0 - 100million users in a very quick timeframe. What we're looking for is someone to almost head up the Engineering function, leading a small team of two and being highly influential and responsible for the architecture and build of a new environment, with is going to be fundamentally built in Mesos. The role will be a Chief Architectural position, with the ability to grow and build a team while maintaining 'hands-on' responsibility. 

We're looking for someone who has a deep understanding of technology such as Mesos, Kubernetes, Docker, AWS and who can build a highly scalable Microservice architecture from the ground up. The backend is going to be built in Scala using the Akka framework. We need someone who understands Linux Engineering, DevOps, CI/CD, Microservices, SRE. Someone who loves to get their hands dirty with technology and who has real world experience with Mesos. 

The company have already managed to attract a large number of high calibre individuals to join the journey, from all corners of the globe. It's a highly attractive opportunity to work in an almost tax-free environment, with a unique lifestyle and some amazing weather! 

This is a great opportunity and one we're excited to be partnering with. Please get in touch with me for further details.
