Head of Technology

Want to be part of making a real difference to people’s lives?

Settld has one simple goal: use technology to remove all unnecessary admin around death, giving people back the time and space to focus on what matters most. We started by automating the process of notifying multiple companies when someone dies, and then transparently resolving each account request with live status tracking. The result is that we interface with over 800 organisations to turn 10 hours of headache into a 15 minute stress free task for our users, landing us a net promoter score of 97.

Settld is a TechStars 2021 company, a Barclays Bank ‘Eagle Labs’ company, supported by the UK Law Society, and a TechNation ‘Rising Star’. We were nominated by the Lisbon Web Summit as a ‘ones to watch’ Breakout Startup, have already won 3 business awards, and are regularly featured in national TV, radio and press for our ‘tech for good’ solution. All this is made possible because of our brilliant team: we’re a friendly group of product, marketing, engineering, operations and finance minds, with international experience built across Tech, VC, Media and Startup. What brings us together is the desire to use our brain power to help others. Settld has raised ~$1M to date, and is now gearing up for the next funding round.

What is the role?

Settld is built with cutting edge technologies such as Elixir, running on AWS. The mission of the Head of Technology is to help Settld scale its automation and machine learning to the next level. Settld wants to be the first business to solve ‘death admin’ problems at a global scale, so whoever we take on should be excited by the idea of leading a technical team to make big things happen. Our ideal candidate has led and delivered at least 1 tech project before (ideally within a startup environment), keeps a keen eye on Security, and has successfully grown a team. This is a high profile and entrepreneurial role, offering a great opportunity to make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Working in an early stage startup environment, expect to have autonomy and ownership over all our key technology decisions.
