About the business
This start-up has just signed off on contracts worth £20m revenue in 2018. They are looking to build a team of talented, high quality developers in Manchester to grow their global reach. The CTO is passionate about training and developing junior or graduate developers by constantly pushing their knowledge and trialling new technology. This is an extremely well backed start up and is born from a well known more established tech business in Manchester.
This is an opportunity for graduate or junior developers to work on something that will change the way financial institutions work by pulling in big data and using AI and machine learning to create a piece of software that constantly evolves as cyber criminals become more sophisticated.
The CTO is a serial entrepreneur who has a track record of building and nurturing tech business from start up, to scale up to sale.
