For the formation of a SaaS startup, we -- the Doodle founders and Elohna initiators -- are looking for a team of founders who would build the startup and own major stakes in it. We would co-finance the formation and be on hand with help and advice.
We are looking for full-time profiles, preferably an entire team in Switzerland or Germany. However, a remote setup is feasible as well, albeit dependent on the overall team constellation.
We are not only looking for computer scientists who enjoy building software and are good at it, but also graduates with good CS knowledge, ideally programming knowledge, who majored in other disciplines. A minimum requirement is for you to have completed your studies and won’t drop out of school for the formation (cf. http://paulgraham.com/before.html).
Ideally, we will be able to set up a small, powerful product team consisting of software engineers (ideally with uxd or devops skills), an interaction/visual designer, and a technically inclined product manager. Furthermore, you have to be willing to proceed according to Customer Development, Disciplined Entrepreneurship, or Running Lean.
Not only would you go without salary in the first months but also without fancy CxO titles -- your future roles would become clear in the course of the build-up, based on discussions with your team-mates and us.
If you apply, please tell us why this opportunity excites you and which of your previous performances you are most proud of.
You can apply as an individual or as a team. If you apply as a team, please list your other team members in the corresponding field.
