Full Time: Chief Technical Officer at FrontlineSMS in Nairobi, Kenya

Frontline is an award-winning social enterprise that helps our users run automated messaging workflows.

These range from simple surveys and RSVPs, to complex long-running projects with external data dependencies and specific reporting requirements.

Our team works closely with companies, non-profits, and governments to help them turn messaging into a key component of their internal and client-facing workflows.

At the heart of this is the Frontline product suite, a set of tools that allow people in any country in the world to send, receive and automate SMS.

Our main product is FrontlineCloud, a Groovy/Grails webapp hosted on AWS.

The primary focus of our dev team is improving, maintaining and documenting FrontlineCloud, and the workflow automations hosted on it.

Frontline is built with the the ambitious goal of ensuring that every use case for SMS automation can be provided by our tools in a user-friendly and intuitive way.

Implementing this is the job of our inquisitive and skillful dev team.

That’s where you come in.

As Chief Technical Officer you will lead our Nairobi-based technical team in design, implementation and maintenance of our key existing products, FrontlineSMS and FrontlineSync, and provide technical guidance in the expansion of our team and product suite.

As the senior-most technical team member, you will work closely with colleagues in complementary roles to design, prioritize and execute a product roadmap, and will have full control over implementation and architecture to ensure Frontline is always available for the critical services that rely on us.

The FrontlineSMS tech team not only builds all of our tech suite, it is also responsible for deployment, user support, and feedback into prioritization for future improvement.

Your role at the head of this team is therefore a key element in building not only the tooling, but the culture and image of FrontlineSMS to our employees, users and wider community.

As the senior-most member of the Nairobi office, you’ll also ensure your colleagues in the dev team and beyond are set up to succeed, and maintain the Frontline team culture among current colleagues and future hires.
