Chief Technology Officer – Startupmatcher – Norg

  • Norg


Stack by me (“Stack”) is a Norwegian startup, aiming to get inexperienced to start investing – especially the many young women and minorities out there. We believe that the capital market should be for everyone, and therefore we need solutions that are adapted and appealing to all groups in society.

Stack by you

Shares have existed for hundreds of years, yet there is still some mystery to «stock buying». Stack combines e-learning and fund and stock trading, on top of a lively “community” (app) where members can follow each other and be notified when their friends have made an investment, demystifying the process by doing it together and with knowledge – with lots of visual content. You could call it “Instagram for investment”. 

The app is live with fund investments and ETFs, and has thousands of users. The app is free with basic content, but for those who want to unlock more video explanations, there is a paid subscription plan as well.

E-learning is a way of attracting consumers to the app – It is not intended to be a major source of income. The greatest income will come from fund- and later stock-trading in the app. 


The main launch of the app was September 2022, and it is now possible to invest in funds via the app. As per January 2023, Stack has about 6500 users in the app.

A total of 10 are working on the Stack project, including consultants and suppliers. Now it’s about getting more people on board internally so the app can be developed further, is stable and has the capacity for thousands of more users. 

We have raised 14MNOK, and the next round of fundraising is also an important focus, which is mainly done to scale the product.

The role of CTO

As the CTO you will be central in shaping Stack´s future. From day 1 you will be responsible for the overall technology strategy, IT architecture, new product features, system integration and building a technical department. This is the opportunity to come in early and play a central role in an up and coming company.

Furthermore, the job involves hands-on coding, as well as taking the strategic view of how to build the architecture and systems. Ultimately, you will be responsible for enabling a successful global commercialization technically. 

Your key responsibilities will be: 

Craft the overall technology strategy for the company

Attract, establish and lead teams of developers


Problem solving

Write comprehensible code that can be expanded and improved as the company and team grows

Design and develop an IT architecture and technical solutions

Work with third-party solutions via APIs

Be part of the Stack C-suite and participate in strategic decision making 

What you get

Stack is a startup with a head-start who needs a technical leader to ensure scalability and later international commercialization. By joining Stack, you will be part of an ambitious and dynamic startup on an important mission to make investments fun and easy.

You will not start completely from scratch as you will get good support from experienced people, and you will also have the freedom to unfold and choose your own team. We are also working with external consultants who can deliver work to you.

You get the opportunity to join early and build a product that’s already shaped with a lot of users, craft and execute a strategy and an architecture for the app, ensuring international growth along with the opportunity to grow your career with us as we grow our company. You will learn a lot about private investments, you will get flexible days and you will expand your social and professional network a lot as we move forward.

Lastly, we can offer an attractive total compensation package including 6 weeks of vacation, a competitive bonus and significant equity and/or stock options in the company. 

Who are we looking for?

Your role will be to lead and build teams on backend, front-end and design, so being motivated to build teams is very important. As a start you will work with the current CTO which will focus mostly on backend tasks, as well as a number of hired consultants on the front-end and web which we are already working with.

Officially we are an Oslo based company, but practically we all work remotely. For us it doesn’t matter if you want to work from Oslo, Stockholm, Larvik or Mo I Rana, or from your sailboat and rather meet occasionally. We talk on Slack and Meet often enough anyway.

We are building an investment platform, so it is a plus if you are interested in stocks, funds, cryptocurrencies, and other investments but it is also perfectly OK if you just want to learn!
