CTO - Chief Technology Officer
Chef och ledare – Huvudkontor Sverige, Stockholm
Join our "Why?" of "Happy owners of healthy animals" and create amazing digital services for our pet owners and their pets. As CTO you will be a part of building the stack from the start.
Evidensia/IVC Group is the leading actor in animal healthcare in Europe. We are on a journey to deliver on our "why?" of "happy owners of healthy animals" and create the best customer journey for our pet owners and pets. To do this we need to create amazing, simple to use, connected services for our clients and we are investing more in this now than ever before.
About the role
As the CTO of Evidensia you will have full technical responsibility and work broadly with everything from choosing our tech stack to operations and taking care of our products including hands on programming. You will lead the way for the coming technical development and take Evidensia's products to the next level on the digtalisation journey. You will start with building your own tech team from scratch as well as choose which techniques, systems and processes that should be used in order to deliver great products to their users. You will work in close collaboration with Evidensia's product owners and Chief Digital Officer as well as development consultants before the new tech team is in place. You will work on group-level which means that you will work with digital platforms in all our ten countries within the Evidensia and IVC Group family.
The missing link
This person has at least a couple of years experience of software engineering and a broad ranging competence in development. In order to successfully navigate the role we believe that you have some sort of technical management experience, i.e. with formal responsibilities in a leading role or different projects. A BSC/MSC in Computer Science or related studies is great but it is not a requirement. You are fluent in English. If you have experience from working in a company that has gone through a similar expansion or digitalisation journey that is ahead for Evidensia, it’s a bonus.
As a person you take responsibility for your actions by being well-structured and driven in your work. You are furthermore happy with setting up processes, and have a flexible and solution oriented mindset. You are an excellent communicator and creative team player with a strategic way of thinking.
Evidensia started 2012 when five of Sweden’s largest animal hospitals merged together. As of 2014 Evidensia is a part of the IVC Group, Europe’s leading veterinarian care provider with 63 animal hospitals and veterinarians in Sweden, as well as 1000+ clinics across ten countries in Europe. Today, the IVC Group and Evidensia family is a fast-growing organisation with a strong entrepreneurial attitude, driven by the advancements in veterinary medicine towards tomorrow's animal care. Evidensia, together with the IVC Group, is pioneering the way in intelligently digitising the patient journey from start to finish with the common goal of providing excellent animal healthcare across Europe.
Evidenisa is a value driven organisation with a friendly culture and a strong purpose, where they want to make a difference through digitisation. Therefore, every decision is based on the consumer experience together with the veterinarians. Our platforms allow animal healthcare providers to treat and follow up with patients – safe, secure and online - many times exceeding the human healthcare experience around Europe. We already have online booking system and an animal healthcare guide (djurvårdguiden.se) that enable more proactive work in animal healthcare.
To summarise, our journey is in full motion and we are now entering an expansive phase where a lot of exciting development is just ahead. For example the creation of an interactive app where you can meet a veterinarian online, also embarking on a journey to offer computer assisted diagnosis with Artificial Intelligence, a groundbreaking feat in animal healthcare and an exciting challenge ahead.
