Opportunities for CTOs and CIOs

Hirings for C-Level technical and information officers have been on the rise in 2019, though this has slowed down within larger multinational corporations as a result of their conservative approach to spending. As such, the majority of opportunities for CTO & CIOs exist within the startup space.

Popular Industries for CTO & CIO jobs

Although CTOs and CIOs often originate within the technical sector, where they will have gained much of their expertise, these roles are becoming increasingly important across all walks of business, as digitization takes hold of more and more industries.

Recent changes in CTO & CIO roles

Technology remains integral to almost all companies. The rapid rate of evolution has put emphasis on CTOs and CIOs to become overnight experts in an increasing number of computer systems and data processes.

Future Prospects

Although information technology continues to evolve, human knowledge and expertise is always going to be required to manage computer systems. CTO and CIO roles are expected to continue to grow in demand and remain free from the risk of automation.


  • Salt’s advice for getting a job as a CTO or CIO


    Employers’ Requirements

    Businesses look to their CTOs and CIOs to be able to manage large scale operations, drive product development, and get their hands dirty in the nitty-gritty of coding if required.

    CV Requirements

    Candidates for CTO or CIO roles should use their CVs to demonstrate their ability to run complex processes on a large scale, as well as interacting with senior stakeholders. They should also be able to demonstrate experience in creating growth plans and expanding business revenue streams. Candidates should also be experts in software or web development, in whichever coding languages the company in question requires.

    Job Interview Preparation

    Those seeking a position as a CIO or CTO can expect a relatively relaxed interview setting, depending on the size of the company they are meeting. The process generally starts with a discussion, followed by a more technical task, which may be executed at home or on-site. Candidates should also be prepared to present any previous projects in which they had a major hand, and demonstrate their leading role in them.

    Educational Requirements

    Candidates will need to have a minimum of a Bachelors degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering, as well as any additional qualifications in related fields.

Top Tip

"Candidates are advised to pace the conversation and understand the employers' current pain points before suggesting solutions. With the limited time frame to converse and present to Senior Stakeholders, it is essential for candidates to have strong prior research and preparation to convey their key topics in a clear and concise manner. "
