Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

The Chief Technology Officer (CTO) is a member of the Senior Leadership Team who is responsible for developing and implementing our technology strategy. For Chapman Cubine Allen & Hussey (CCAH), technology strategy goes beyond the traditional IT silo. Technology, data, and information security touch all aspects of the business and implementing effective technology across the organization is required to achieve business goals and support continuing growth.

The CTO leads the team responsible for day-to-day technology enablement, defining technology architecture and infrastructure, ensuring compliance, and managing vendor relationships. We’re looking for someone who can alternate between leading strategic objectives and acting as an individual contributor in areas ranging from systems administration to employee IT to procurement.

The CTO will act as a technology and business expert while driving innovative technologies that will enhance the company’s products and services and create a sustainable competitive advantage for the Company. CCAH recently joined forces with MissionWired, a premier digital firm partnering, like CCAH, with leading nonprofits and Democratic causes and campaigns. The CTO will be a key liaison working to implement best practices in collaboration with the MissionWired team. The CTO is expected to possess a mix of strong leadership skills, operational effectiveness, and a creative approach to business acumen.

Joining CCAH means helping the biggest names in campaigns and nonprofits make their mark on the world.
