Opportunity in SoCal (LA or San Diego) with an early stage start-up.  Company has raised about a million seed so far and is getting close with further negotiations with several top tier VCs.   There are two co-founders and looking for a technical co-founder to take the reins as CTO.
Early Stage Start-Up looking for CTO (co-founding) to lead the buildout of the company’s technology stack. Our vision is to become the world’s leading software platform that services waste and recycling haulers in all business areas. This business management platform will grow to include dispatch, routing, CRM, billing, accounting, phone integration and payment processing.

The CEO was the top sales executive and strategic director at one the fastest growing tech start-ups in Los Angeles and plans to use a similar playbook and strategy to help disrupt another underserved industry. The President previously led acquisitions of legacy software products in the industry and knows all the players, both their strengths and weaknesses.

The CTO will work directly with the other 2 founders and manage the offshore (and eventually on shore) engineering team to help build this product. This person should be able to get into the code while also being able to partake in future discussions with prospective clients and potential investors.
