Job Title

Chief Technology Officer (M/F/D), Creative and Growing Startup Environment

Job Description

Humanitarian emergencies, such as climate shocks, the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine and famine in Africa are leading to skyrocketing costs. Traditional fundraising is slow and fails to attract younger donors. Let’s do something about it – with the power of machine learning. If you love working on data-driven challenges, applying the latest technologies, taking ownership and having impact this may be your chance.

At Perigee, we combine innovative machine learning methods, adaptive data science and predictive analytics. We enable the humanitarian sector to improve disaster risk management and connect with people in ways that move them to action. We’re a growing startup, currently looking for a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with a focus on application architecture and API integration/adaptation.


  • Telecommuting is OK

Your responsibilities:

  • Architecture design and choice of technologies, frameworks and tools;
  • Design, implement and deploy Machine Learning solutions;
  • Coordinate software teams for data collection and preprocessing;
  • Implement high-quality, well-tested and scalable code;
  • Help define standards and best practices;

You offer:

  • Hands-on Experience with Python (e. g. pandas, scikit-learn, TensorFlow/PyTorch, pytest, FastAPI, and similar frameworks or libraries);
  • Git;
  • Docker;
  • SQL/PostgreSQL;

  • Experience with planning and requirements gathering;
