Financial Times seeks new CTO

Rebecca Thomson

The Financial Times is looking for a new chief technology officer (CTO) to lead the technical strategy of FT.com.

The company wants someone able to lead a transformational programme, with an extensive understanding of web technology, who has worked at a senior level in a "high-end consumer facing, web driven business".

The FT is the latest media company to focus on recruiting forward-looking technology expertise. The Telegraph Group's chief information officer Paul Cheesborough recently moved to News International, and the Press Association has just appointed its first CTO.

The Financial Times job description suggests an upcoming period of change, with the company looking for someone with a "firm grasp of the processes and tools that enable rapid development and deployment" and "experience of leading a team through change".

The new CTO will also need to have empathy with emerging web technology and a "high degree of persuasive and professional acumen."
