Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

We’re seeking a Chief Technology Officer to help us transform childcare in the US.

Join MyVyllage: an exciting start-up that has a powerful & inspiring vision for transforming child care.

Early education is the most important part of the educational system for setting children up for success in life, yet it is underfunded, inconsistently delivered, and too often just unavailable. MyVillage is the solution: a platform for creating the safe, nurturing and affordable spaces that enable our community’s children to reach their full potential.

MyVillage was founded by two moms who are deeply committed to improving childcare to create better outcomes for kids. After speaking to hundreds of early childhood experts, teachers, and successful child care providers, we realized that the most important factor in childhood development was the connection between a child and a care provider.

We’re building a team of awesome, committed people who are dedicated to supporting kids and their earliest teachers — maybe someone like you!

You will fall in love with this role if:

You are motivated to reimagine early childcare, see children, caregivers and parents as all equally important in early childhood, and are passionate about growing a world-class product development team.

Our CTO will be in charge of all company technology product, design, and engineering. You’ll be in charge of establishing the company technology vision, strategies, and plans for growth.
