Blackbird Studios | Project CTO | Remote US only | Contract to hire

Who we are

Blackbird is a San Francisco based digital software studio that specializes in a Human Centered and “Build, Measure, Learn” approach to launching totally new, high-impact software products for a wide variety of public and private sector clients, from early stage startups to Fortune 50 companies. We work directly with brands or through partnerships with some of the top design studios in the world. 

Blackbird is very different from most other software studios. We operate in very collaborative and strategic relationships with our clients and partners which gives us a uniquely strategic seat at the table and opportunity to regularly deep dive into a new interesting understanding of our client’s business then build, launch, and evolve new software products from the ground up.

Our teams include CTO consulting, Software Development, UX/UI, training and capabilities building, and “Build, Measure, Learn” Product Management. We work with large and small companies/startups on projects ranging from 2-12 months with 2-7 people on each project.  We build full stack web, mobile, IoT, physical installations, etc. Our favorite stack is React, React Native, GraphQL, and Rails. We also use a wide range of other tech as needed since we face a pretty diverse set of challenges. Recent and upcoming examples: Flutter, .Net, Drupal, Elixir/Phoenix, Swift, and Kotlin.

Who you are

We are looking for people who are excited about building great software products, who are great teammates, and who are passionate about continuously refining best practices for creating successful digital products. Experience in dev team leadership, new product development, collaboration with business and design stakeholders, and consulting experience are all huge pluses.

We are a remote-first company but very active collaboration on video and Slack, plus occasional travel to San Francisco and other locations is part of the job for project kickoffs and other critical collaboration phases or meetings.
