Entrepreneur in Residence @ Paua Ventures portfolio company
Established in 2010, we have built our way up to becoming a leading tech investor in Europe with €70+ million under management and a portfolio of over 25 companies in different growth stages from all over Europe. We are passionate about backing visionary, exceptionally talented but at the same time humble founders and have been fortunate to work with founding teams of companies, such as Pipedrive, Stripe, Detectify, Silexica and many more. Our approach as a VC is very service-oriented, providing full support through a proactive partnership, such as operational help in core business development tasks and support in HR & recruiting processes.
To strengthen our portfolio companies, we are always on the lookout for outstanding talent!
Currently, we are looking to fill several Entrepreneur in Residence positions in our portfolio companies (mainly SaaS) in different cities in Germany and the EU. If you strive to work side by side with highly passionate, inspiring and talented founders, if you are eager to hold the reins over various projects from start to finish line and if you enjoy being involved both in strategic decision making as well as operational work – then we should talk!
As Entrepreneur in Residence, you can expect the following:
- You will be working side by side with the founders, execute strategic and operational topics and play a significant role in running and growing the company
- You will take the lead in a variety of cross-functional tasks and projects related to Strategy, Business Development, Marketing, Sales and Finance
- You will dive deep in the data and not only convert data analysis into insights, identify the biggest levers for growth and develop actionable plans, but also subsequently implement these with lots of drive and ownership
- You will be a growth hacker in everything you do and proactively figure out how to unlock operational efficiency, improve business processes and deliver scalable solutions
- You don’t see the mess, you see the challenges which want to be tackled and rules which want to be broken ;-)
This role is a fantastic opportunity to get a great overview into the various functions and processes of a fast growing, VC-backed tech company. With a fixed 12 to 18-month term it also offers excellent prospects for rapid upward progression into a key position.
