CTO/Co-Founder

Toronto, ON, Canada
Full Time
Senior Executive

Who we are

An R-LABS portfolio company, Ownablii is an early-stage B2B SaaS startup led by co-founder and CEO Marcel Greaux. A 20-year veteran in the real estate investment and mortgage space, Marcel is on a mission to tackle the housing affordability problem by providing home-seekers with a new path to ownership. Ownablii is building a fintech-enabled platform that enables co-ownership arrangements. 

Who you are

You are a technical leader, product builder, and collaborator. You are an architect, a coder, a creator, and a mentor. Ideally, you have led complex projects in Fintech or Proptech platforms end-to-end and have exposure to marketplaces, blockchain, and matchmaking apps. Your reputation and connections in technology are one of your greatest assets with the ability to attract talented innovators and builders to join your team and make things happen quickly.

You may have a history of successfully building tech startups and new products. Or, you may have a reputation as the technical brain to bring in and strategically shape a product to bring a vision to life. Either way, you have the hustle, the presence, the grit, and the expertise to take an idea from concept to architecture to MVP product market fit success in the marketplace. You thrive in a position where you can roll up your sleeves, select the people, the technology, and the approach as you lead the design, development, and deployment of early solutions. You have the technical chops to directly contribute to the coding and product development  in a high-growth, fast-paced, Agile environment.

As an exceptional partner, you can build trust, negotiate ownership and accountabilities and work closely with an engaging, face-of-the-business, Co-Founder while holding your own to recruit and manage a robust technical team and ensure alignment between our technology and business strategy. You are comfortable with ambiguity and can step back and look at the bigger picture, designing a flexible solution and responding quickly to changes in the industry, the marketplace, the team, and the business. 

You can nurture relationships with clients and stakeholders at all levels. You have a way of speaking, writing, and relaying information that engages people and expresses appreciation for diverse opinions and approaches.

Why join Ownablii as a Co-Founder and CTO?

We are just getting started with our impact based venture, and joining now as a Chief of Technology and Co-Founder is an incredible opportunity to be a strategic technology and business leader, shaping the product and the direction of a start-up from day one. This is a chance to:

  • Be a Co-Founder and be empowered to make critical decisions, strategic choices, and influential directions and further your reputation as a successful technology leader.
  • Solve a massive social crisis - the challenge of affordable home ownership - through technology. It’s what you have been working towards, what excites and inspires you. You want to play an influential role introducing best practices, standards, processes, and cutting-edge technologies. 
  • Build a best-in-class team that shares your passion for tackling challenges in unconventional ways, drawing on their curiosity to research, learn, innovate, and adapt quickly to the new while accepting the unknown.

This is a level of exposure and scale that few other opportunities provide - at a funded venture in the very early stages.

At a high level, your accountabilities will include:

You are looking for an opportunity to bring your expertise and apply your insights and passion for owning the technical scope from the ground up. You will spearhead and be directly involved - in all aspects of the product, from architecture to launch. This includes:

  • Collaborating with the Co-Founder to fulfill our mission and bring our purposeful vision to life.
  • Leading the strategy for technology platforms, partnerships, and external relationships.
  • Providing thought leadership, innovation, creativity, and mentorship.
  • Implementing and continuously optimizing technology solutions, standards and best practices to meet current and future business needs based on insights, experience, industry knowledge, and new trends.
  • Building, overseeing the growth and managing the performance of an engineering team, and their work, including all system design and architecture changes
  • Developing and controlling the annual operating and capital budgets for technology purchasing, staffing and operations.
  • Working closely with Marketing, Business Development and Operations to define and deliver new products and enhancements.
  • Co-managing this venture from a data-driven, performance-measurement-informed perspective.

If you are passionate about creating impact and solving real world problems, have the technology, operational, and people leadership expertise, including overseeing architecture and engineering for enterprise solutions in B2C SaaS, we’d love to set up a discussion with you and introduce you to Marcel.

We welcome and appreciate candidates with a range of backgrounds and experiences, including women, persons with disabilities, Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC), the LGBTQ2SIA+ community, and other equity-seeking groups.

 If you have 70% of the qualifications we are looking for, express your interest here. Please let us know what accommodations or assistance we can provide you during the application process.
