About This Job

Lets invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday- Steve Jobs

The technology head works to bridge the space between strategic vision, business practice, and software implementation His role is to assure the successful execution of the companys business mission through development and deployment of the companys technology presence

This requires envisioning how the software is structured by the brands service offerings as a web-based business, planning how the software is built as well as, leading implementation of web based applications, and planning for risk and growth

Its an important job considering you become the face of the companys technology platform; an evangelist to developers, customers and employees with a focus on building awesome technology

Key Accountabilities

The Technology Head needs to wear a lot of hats especially in the early days from systems architect to code monkey to development manager to project manager then finally to technology head as the business scales over time He or she would have built web applications in C++, Java, PHP, Python and Ruby frameworks (at least Java, PHP and Python)

The specific skills can be broken into the below mentioned five parts

Seeing the big picture

- The tech head should know everything technology can and cant do in their head That means knowing whats written and whats not, what the architecture can and cant support, and how long it would take to build something new and scale it Being able to see the macro and micro simultaneously is a hallmark of all of the really great technologists

Platform selection and technical design

- With multiple people working on the same project and platform, you will have to be a lot crisper in your definitions Is the fact that we were primarily using Magento essential, or could we add new frameworks written in other languages- Is it an important fact that most of our web code is procedural and what if someone wanted to write his or her module in OOP style- When projects are getting off the ground, the team checks with you to make sure their plans are viable

Provide options

- You never say, thats impossible Instead you find options and communicate them to everyone in the company If the business head wants to change the product in order to serve a new customer segment, you need to digest the needs of the new (proposed) business, and lay out the costs of each possible approach

Find the 80/20

- Sometimes, the tech head is in a meeting where someone wants to build a new feature And in their mind, theyve got it all spec- d out It slices, it dices, and probably washes your onions too In your mind, you would find a way to get 80% of the benefit for 20% of the cost Would you be able to learn what you need to learn if that feature just sliced, but not diced- Because if we dont have to add a dicing module, we can reduce 80% costs You will know how often features are added on a whim!

Own the development methodology

- Usually the VP Engineering would be responsible for the engineers writing adequate specs, interfacing well with QA, and also running the scheduling trains for releases But in our lean startup, the development methodology is too important and has enormous impact on what the architecture must look like and therefore the technology head has to be responsible for this

Grow technical leaders

- You will formalize this responsibility by eventually designating some developers as Technical Leads and delegating more and more projects This is the only way to scale By delegating and training, you create a chain of leaders who could step in to provide Tech head-like services on demand Despite the title, you are still hands on - not merely the management who gets wheeled in for meetings It means knowing how good architecture or interface design is built, what makes things tick, doing incredible debugging when the team is stuck or need help Its about trust Its about inspiration

About This Company

To seed, grow & build a brand in the online space, is as much a challenge, as it is an opportunity While stories of attempts to build an online store for a brand are exciting, in general, truly mind-blowing are the few runaway successes, executed by new and small teams, that have nearly re-defined business and branding We believe we are at the beginnings of one such success story

ROUTE16 is a young and upcoming start-up in the online commerce space, founded by experienced professionals from diverse backgrounds and great global exposure We aim to build Indias most result oriented full services e-commerce partner for brands to amplify their online business in a proven and cost effective manner Our model is to partner with brands to sell their products/services online under their own brand and make it contribute significantly to the top-line sales on a completely managed basis Route16 is thus in the business of increasing a brands online business
