Do you want to learn how to market new products and experience the dynamics of a startup? This is your opportunity!

Coteries Lab is a web/mobile application development and digital marketing studio based out of EPFL Innovation Park in Lausanne. Trusted by renowned companies like Swisscom, Localsearch.ch, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and startups, Coteries Lab is specialized in the development of prototypes (so-called “Minimum Viable Products”) to help test and iterate new concepts and ideas, as well as building websites and mobile applications for its customers.

Moreover, Coteries SA is developing its own digital products and services, especially Planify (digital solution for group business trips and travel – www.planify.io), but also different other products.

We are looking to reinforce our team with a CTO.

Is this you? You:

  • are proactive, dynamic, curious and extremely organized;
  • are enthusiastic about taking ownership and be responsible for different parts of a project (front-end, mobile, back-end);

  • can handle multiple projects in parallel, in a fast-paced environment;
  • have an entrepreneurial personality and can think outside of the box;

  • have experience with different technologies, programming languages and platforms (front- and back-end, such as: iOS (SWIFT) / Android, React.js, React Native, Javascript, Mongo DB, Node.js, PhP, Java). Or at least, have a strong desire to learn!
  • are fluent in English and ideally also in French;
  • have at least 3 years work experience.


Our side of the bargain for the new CTO:

  • You will be a huge part of an amazing team building ambitious projects;

  • You will be experimenting the different stages of building a product, following an agile methodology;
  • You will be:
    • Estimating development projects
    • Defining and implementing software architecture
    • Coding working prototypes and complete web (especially in react.js) or mobile applications (iOS, Android, react native)
    • Managing development projects (20-30% of your working time)

Our values:

  • We are action-oriented and result driven;
  • We take what we do seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously! We are not scared to laugh, experiment and fail;
  • We are passionate about building and launching digital products.
