Introduction

As Head of Technology, you will manage the IT strategy, IT infrastructure, IT team, as well as all technology-led projects aiming at enhancing our e-commerce, logistics, and operational framework.

With a direct report to the MD, you will manage and develop our platforms and teams to scale at the International level and gain a significant competitive advantage against competition.

At the core of armadioverde business model and user journey, there is an event-driven serverless platform based on AWS with an advanced frontend, an in-house ERP (used by our ops team), and a digital currency called ‘stars’. In our development plans, we will also expand towards ML and blockchain solutions where you will have a reporting dotted line to the CEO and the responsibility to support the R&D team with IT deliverables.

Whom we are looking for

To be successful in this role you need at least 15 years of experience in the above areas and you have been scaling IT platforms (and teams) in a scaleup or in a fast-growing corporate division, probably with a direct report to a very senior CTO. In your previous roles, your work has represented a tangible success factor to the business, outpacing the competition and any internal expectations in the IT area.

Ideally, you have applied all this experience in a direct-to-consumer business (even better if in a fashion or lifestyle industry). You are an expert in several IT verticals, but you are also conscious of the wider digital landscape surrounding a company’s IT backbone (social networks, new reselling channels, latest e-payment solutions, mobile-first technology, etc).

We expect you to lead the projects not for the sake of tech, but with a clear, identified, and measurable outcome towards the customer, the business, its P&L, and your internal customers.
