Chief Technology Officer

Job Description

This job will require 25-30 hours of coding for about the first year until you have established a team of engineers. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT OR DO NOT WANT TO WRITE CODE.

Please only apply to this job if you are willing to relocate to our corproate office in Virginia Beach, VA.

We are looking for a CTO to join our growing team! You will be required to work in our corporate office.

We want to help you break through complacency and find a place of impact within the real estate software industry.

You’re not okay with complacency.

We understand that being the same today as yesterday means that you’re not growing. It’s not okay to trade passion and progress for a paycheck; you should be able to have both.

Canzell is a growth-stage cloud brokerage creating and maintaining an acceleration platform for our agents’ real estate businesses so we can have big impact in the lives of our clients and their communities.

While building our acceleration platform, we saw an industry norm:

  • Tooling that is clunky, confusing, slow, over-priced, and doesn’t play well with others!

Here’s the game plan for breaking through complacency and finding you a place of impact:

  • Restructure our engineering team into a product team, hiring talented individuals like yourself.
  • Take our internal software solutions from a high-functioning prototype to a polished product.
  • Deliver this industry-transforming platform to our agents at Canzell for testing and feedback.
  • Subvert the industry norm again by packaging it up for agents at other brokerages.

We want to give back to the industry and empower them to have the kind of impact Canzell has in the lives of our clients and their communities.

Become the change-bringer clients and their communities need, gaining extensive experience in the design, development, and scaling of next-gen software services that will transform an entire industry.

Most companies put you in front of a micro-sized piece of the big picture; we are inviting you to take a seat at the painter’s easel. Instead of being told to stay in your corner, you’ll gain experience you won’t get anywhere else as you contribute at every stage of product lifecycle.

Apply to be a part of the Canzell product team today!

This position focuses on building the backend API powering our products.

It is a full-time position requiring you to be in-office. Only apply if you are in the Hampton Roads area or willing to relocate to our beautiful and beachy Virginia Beach, VA.
