Job Description

New Venture seeks Entrepreneurs

We are a new start-up trying something very different and experimental. The foundation of our enterprise is to take good business ideas and then rapidly prototype them using frameworks we discover ourselves and frameworks that have been developed elsewhere. The team operates under a culture of radical openness and transparency.

Airbnb started with one blow up mattress on the founder's apartment floor. Facebook as a simple software tool for Harvard students to get to know each other quickly and easily. They did not start off with huge amounts of Venture Capital money, just with a bright idea, a little low cost experimentation, drive, passion and luck.

So what do we plan to do? Take between 6 and 20 ideas per year and build a prototype we can field test to see if it has more legs. If it looks promising then we can either build a new team around it, or put some of our existing entrepreneurial staff in to it if they are excited by the idea.

The idea funnel is going to be very broad. It may cover any number of different sectors from tech to manufacturing to finance to consumer goods. It is not the idea that is paramount, it is the ability to explore it cheaply and quickly with an energetic open-minded team.

As an in-house entrepreneur you are going to get the opportunity to be paid to learn a broad range of skills. What are those skills? I can't tell you yet because we don't know what business ideas we are going to progress. If you are excited by the prospect of that then you are the type of person we want in our team. If you are excited to have your voice heard and be surrounded by high performing, success driven individuals, we are the company for you.

Qualifications

If you can make a strong case for why we should hire you it does not matter if you do not have the perfect credentials.
