I’m trying something new.
A reader presented to me what I consider it to be a disruptive opportunity. In order to help, I offered to use the Asymco podium to solicit applications for a leadership position in this startup. As I consider this audience to be of the highest possible competence and sensitivity to the subtle shifts in the mobile industry, I consider posting this Help Wanted ad a win-win for all involved.
So, without further qualification, here is the pitch:
A new company is being formed that will build the next generation of sports products and services. Traditional sports products have been predicated on business models dependent on old media and advertising. The opportunity exists to enter new, non-consumption markets where new audiences, new performances and new ways of making money are made possible.
Professional sports is one of the last bastions of broadcasting. It’s time to lead the charge.
As CTO you will be responsible for building and managing a team of developers, designers, systems/network engineers, and product managers. You will be expected to have a roll-up-your-sleeves mentality and be able to work extremely closely with the engineering team to design and build out new products and services.
If you have proven leadership and management experience and have operated a mission-critical technology environment while maintaining a climate of rapid innovation, this new company will give you the reins and compensate you handsomely.
If you are interested, please send your resume to Help Wanted.
