About Jennie

I am CEO and Co-Founder of www.KAVADOR.com a start-up launched in November 2015.

KAVADOR's goal is to become THE national marketplace for fine jewelry. The $80bn US fine jewelry market is highly fragmented with only 4% of sales conducted online. That is expected to grow to 20% in the next 4 years and KAVADOR will help local independent retailers capitalize on that growth. Retailers can list inventory that has been seen by their local consumer base on our site to showcase it to a new audience at a competitive price point to enable a quick sale. By listing pieces under the KAVADOR brand retailers will protect their bricks and mortar pricing structure and brand and by turning inventory into cash they improve their cash flow and profitability. KAVADOR improves consumer experience by aggregating inventory from local retailers in the highly fragmented online fine jewelry marketplace whilst delivering exceptional value and a luxury shopping experience.

KAVADOR is looking for CTO to join the team to help develop our technology strategy, ensuring we leverage technology to deliver our business goals. The CTO will maintain and develop our site as well as develop a consumer app and a retail partner app. The KAVADOR stack is WordPress, Woocommerce, Nginx, PHP and MySQL. The ideal candidate will be a WordPress and Woocommerce expert with advanced knowledge of Nginx, PHP, MySQL.

The position will be a time commitment of 10-20 hours a week and will be a equity-only position initially.
