RecommendMe is seeking its CTO
RecommendMe is a seed funded social dining platform. Our latest version is live both on iOS (RecommendMe App) and our web app. Our member base continues to grow and we’re rapidly bringing on additional top tier restaurant partners. Building upon the validation from customer and partner feedback and usage, we’re looking for an entrepreneurial engineer to join the team as CTO and own and lead the technology vision and implementation.

What is RecommendMe?
RecommendMe is an app to get priority reservations & benefits at your favorite restaurants + discover your friends’ tips. Restaurants receive social referrals and establish relationships with their Fans to convert them into frequent diners. We’re currently focused on building out the Chicago market, both members and restaurants, but the app can be used globally.

What will you do as CTO?
You’ll be a true partner on the team, in terms of role and equity (yes, salary and healthcare too!), and play a key role in product strategy/development. You’ll also have deep exposure to members and restaurants and help set the tone for culture, performance and quality of the team overall.

Day to day, you will own the technical vision and roadmap while also being one of the primary hands on developers. While our current stack is comprised of Ruby on Rails, Swift, and React, we are agnostic on the technical stack going forward though as you will determine that.

Leadership Team
Kapil Chaudhary, Founder and CEO: 15+ years experience co-founding, investing in and working with seed/early stage companies. Co-founder/Managing Partner of I2A Ventures ($30M+ venture fund), co-founder of Excelerate, now TechStars Chicago, and founder of Launch U (educational start-up).

Your Name, CTO and Partner: Your awesome prior experience here

TBD, Head of Product and Partner: Recruiting now as well and will be the other Partner
