Current Vacancies
Chief Technology Officer
Memrica is an award-winning start up, backed by Uber, tackling the anxiety that hits the confidence and independence of active people living with a memory problem, which starts to reduce their quality of life. Globally more than 500m people live with a condition that affects recall and the majority are under 70.

We’re helping by linking shared histories and context about the people and places that are most important to users to reminders, so they can prepare for events and feel confident about coping. Over time, the system learns users’ patterns or behaviour and preferences and surfaces useful information when needed as well as sending alerts if things are changing.

The system taps into the note taking habits people develop as a coping strategy and enhances it by adding images and background as well as ensuring the information stored is persistent. It comprises an app, a web dashboard and a cloud server (Azure) for syncing content. The app works offline, with all content and links between content synced when the app is next online.

We are seeking a CTO who is as passionate as we are about changing lives across the world. You’re a problem solver who listens to what customers need and translates that into a great product, you horizon scan for new concepts and ideas to apply, you enjoy being hands on, taking ownership of a product as well as being involved in strategic thinking. Your attitude and aptitude are more important than your years of experience.

We’re a small team – a passionate tech savvy founder and super bright graduate developer supported by great technical advisors and this is a great opportunity for you to help shape the future of the business. We’re based in iCentrum, a new tech start up hub on the Birmingham Science Park, near Aston University. It’s bright, spacious, great for networking and there’s a really good café on the ground floor. We’re part of the Wayra Open Futures Programme.

Technically, our system’s core is written in Javascript, with Azure cloud hosting and we plan to move the presentation layer from Swift to React Native or similar. We’re in public beta with the app and are pushing to release this Spring.

• Want to make a difference for active people with a memory problem
