Applegate & Thorne-Thomsen is looking to hire a Chief Technology Officer to support their dynamic practice. The ideal candidate will be a "player coach," able to execute and perform on required technical support tasks, such as Microsoft Office and Windows upgrades and website redesign, manage both internal and external resources, and provide strategic leadership, vision and long-term IT and IS planning for the firm. Candidates must have both a desire to work in a hands-on capacity while maintaining a big-picture focus.
The firm is close-knit and places an emphasis on work-life balance as well as providing excellent client service. Cultural fit is just as important as technical expertise, as the CTO will be working closely with both the firm COO and Managing Partner. Key responsibilities include leading the firm's technology committee, evaluating and managing the firm's current technical external provider, leading experienced employees, and evaluating/updating the firm's security and business continuity/disaster recovery programs. This position reports up to the COO and will have significant impact on the growth and performance of the business.
