EA License No.15S7496

Job Description

This role will require relocation to Jakarta, Indonesia. The company is looking for a native Chinese speaker who is open to relocate.

My client is an emerging digital bank for the Indonesia market. The company was formed through a merger in 2022 between a leading Indonesian retail bank and a Chinese digital bank. Hence, they are looking for a CTO who can bridge this gap.

Thanks to the retail bank's legacy, they already have a user base of 200m, and thanks to the cutting edge technology of the Chinese digibank, they are now poised to become the most trusted digital bank in Indonesia.

Key Responsibilities

As a CTO of an early stage (but high growth FinTech) you will:

  • Lead the entire Technology team (around 60 people)
  • Own and further develop the Technology roadmap, including transforming the current structure to be "product led" (agile, squad based)
  • Report to CEO and interface with the investment team, board members and current technology teams (based in both Indonesia and China)
  • Embody strategic thinking across the technology organization - helping to determine the future of the team and the business at large

Key Requirements

To be successful in this role, you should have:

  • A very strong background in technology (a degree in Computer Science/Engineering would be useful, plus several years working in technology / app based companies)
  • Prior experience leading significant technology teams (30+ people)
  • Strategic vision to back up your technology skills
  • Experience with the Indonesia market would be a plus, but it's not a must have
  • A passion / interest in the fintech domain and the future of digi banking in traditionally "underserved" markets
