Head of Technology (Filled)

Are you interested in building a completely new tech product in a creative environment, where you can realise your ideas and prove your talents? These are exciting times at project access. We’ve grown to a community of over 3,000 mentors and 2,000 mentees and now it’s time to build a better, more intuitive and more robust mentoring- and knowledge platform that integrates all the work we do to help our applicants in one place.

As part of the new product team, the head of technology will be responsible for:

  • developing the technical specifications of our new mentoring platform

  • finding partner institutions, products and providers to build a product our mentees and mentors find intuitive and easy to use

  • building and leading a tech-team to maintain and innovate upon our new mentoring platform

Your key qualifications should include:

  • programming skills in at least one language, preferably R

  • ability to draft and communicate complex software projects

  • ability to build, lead and motivate a team of volunteer tech-experts to further innovate and improve our product

At project access, you get full responsibility for the technology behind our product. In other words, you get responsibility for a system used by 150-200 project access team members and about 5,000 users, with a strong tendency of growth. You’ll be part of a big organisation that cherishes efficiency, hard work and agility in a startup-like environment. Although the work is unpaid, you’ll be part of a team that will strive to generate all the tools and resources required to realise the project. Most importantly, you’ll have a massive degree of freedom in deciding which way to go! - You can try out new skills or ideas in a low-risk but high-value context. This will be extremely useful experience for people interested in a career in:

  • technology consultancy

  • tech startups

  • product consultancies

  • traditional tech firms
