This person must be able to work effectively in a group setting with designers, developers, CIRV functional unit leaders, and advisors/senior executives.

microcontroller implementation

The Tech Lead’s scope will initially be to manage development of CIRV’s sensor-based analytics platform with opportunity to grow that scope as the company broadens its product offerings. This role will have line of sight to promotions to Director, Vice President, President, and Chief Technology Officer should the hired candidate have the desire and continue to perform well with a larger and larger sphere of management influence. With such scope increases, the Tech Lead will not only become a more key member of the management team who influences the future direction of the business, but they will have the opportunity to increase their equity ownership in the company (at the discretion of the existing C-Suite, board of directors, and/or other authority as delegated by the company’s governing

The current vision for the evolution of this role, should the hired candidate’s performance demonstrate such a path forward would be of mutual benefit, is as follows (each step is in addition to the ongoing leadership over all prior steps):

  1. Lead development of the Sensor-Based Analytics Platform, which includes: a. Web Application b. People Counting Sensors c. Backend/Server/Database
  2. Lead development of the consumer- and business-facing CIRV Mobile Application: a. Consumer-facing elements b. Unique business-facing elements
  3. Development of CIRV’s AI infrastructure that combines the power of the Mobile Application with that of the Sensor-Based Analytics Platform
  4. Development of CIRV POS
  5. Strategic leader for the future of the CIRV platform Additionally, the Tech Lead will assist with sales, marketing, fund raising, and non-technical recruitment as a key leader when establishing credibility for the team. These functions will be most prevalent early on. The expectation in each area will shrink over time and will eventually be phased out into the responsibility of other functional unit leaders.
