About us

RedSofa Berlin was launched in 2014.

As part of the rapidly expanding RedSofa family, we were determined to create a European Creative Recruitment Hub with a real difference. In other words, do a better job than the competition and have fun at the same time.

Well, years on we're helping and placing more people than we ever thought possible and having more fun than we ever imagined.

Our philosophy is blindingly simple: only hire the very best consultants and then watch them and the business flourish. Of course, there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and the building of long-term relationships: but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior designers to global CEOs. Our expertise in most areas is now being regarded as almost unequaled.

CTO – Music Startup

Berlin

Permanent

€100,000 - €120,000

+

Are you passionate about music and technology? Would you like to be an important part to the future of how we listen to our musical journeys?

Working for an early/growth stage deep-tech music start up, there is brand new CTO opening where you will be working closely with both the CEO and COO in guiding the future direction of the technology and products.

This is a very interesting company with an eclectic mix of people ranging from developers, art /creative directors, music composers, machine learning specialists and more.

You ideally should have a wealth of experience across system architecture, knowledge of app development (ios), cloud experience and experience in scaling and managing small teams upwards.

As CTO, one of your first decisions here could be to decide in which direction the product and technologies will be going, do you take the cloud route, is an app a better way to start wit etc.

So this is a super exciting time to make an instant impact. You will have 3 direct reports but this will grow as the product scales.

You will contribute to the technology strategy and deliver the product roadmap here.

Having a musical background would be fantastic to have, or even a strong interest in the music industry but it’s definitely not essential to have.

GET TO KNOW: RORY

Steve Buss 8th July 2021

GET TO KNOW: RORY

A passionate recruiter who currently helps Berlin startups, SME’s & scaleups secure the best design talent from Senior Product Designers & Brand Designers all the way through to Directors & Global Heads of Design.

 

 

 

Following successful and occasionally simultaneous careers in both hospitality and music events, Rory desired a new challenge, so in 2017 he began recruiting design in Berlin.

He’s also invested in supporting grass roots designers at the start of their careers. He regularly hosts portfolio reviews for the design students from IronHack Berlin.

 

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

It’s always a pleasure to work with Rory. His understanding of roles and clients’ needs is incredible. He provides lots of high-quality candidates quickly and helps to move the process forward. It’s always great to work with people who obviously love what they do.

Natalia Volgina | Product Design @ Sesame

 

What I think is so unique about what Rory brings to the table is his instinct. His ability to get a sense of a company, what they value, what they have the ability to contribute to today’s world, and what roles, support, or individual contributor could really help bolster those efforts is really remarkable. He quickly and with ease gets a sense of one’s interest, character, and passion, matching that well with the needs he sees in the market. Finding good, appropriate talent is so undervalued.

Jill Yoe Graves | Global Head of Design @ Yara Digital Farming.

 

A FUN FACT ABOUT RORY;
When I was working as a chef in Manchester I cooked for Dizzie Rascal, Pele, David Bekham, Girls Aloud, and Alice Cooper to name a few.
