Sympli is on the lookout for a CTO, responsible for the platform architecture and security of the Sympli platform and the ISMS, regulatory compliance obligations and data governance.
Sympli started in 2018 with 10 employees and has grown to over 70 employees across Australia. The company has been established by ASX and InfoTrack to build the next generation electronic property settlement service, used by lawyers, conveyancers and financial institutions to lodge and settle securely and efficiently.
The company is one of two ELNOs (Electronic Lodgment Network Operators) currently operational in Australia with states rapidly adopting the digitisation of conveyancing. ELNOs operate critical financial infrastructure which sits at the heart of Australia’s real estate and lending markets.
Reporting to the CEO, the CTO will be tasked with formulating the organisation's IT strategy (in collaboration with other executives).
The CTO will establish and direct the company’s technical vision, and lead all aspects of the company’s technological development and future growth. The CTO will also work closely with the CEO, the chief product officer, head of development and head of infrastructure and security to ensure that the technology priorities are clear, executed efficiently and in accordance with Sympli's risk appetite.
The job also requires the CTO to manage the provision of secure/stable IT services to support business outcomes through effective risk management strategies; and establish and maintain value-based stakeholder and strategic supplier relationships (including external) which meet business requirements.
Also on the list of requirements includes the responsibility to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of group assets, information, data and IT services through clearly defined policies/standards; and represent Sympli's technology strategy to shareholders, including ASX and the InfoTrack group of companies.
