Business co-founder living-as-a-service software platform [EN] [NL]

Job description

Voor Nederlands klik hier.

We are looking for a seasoned business co-founder for a new venture called Obeyo! Obeyo helps real estate developers and property managers to provide Living-as-a-Service to residents using a software platform and a mobile app.


As CEO you'll be leading this startup to a profitable company by focussing on sales, marketing and product management. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to become an entrepreneur, with the support of the We Are Builders team as a co-founder.


We Are Builders is a startup studio. We work with committed entrepreneurs to transform unique ideas and tech startups into strong and independent growing companies. We're a compact, multidisciplinary team of A-players each with over 10 years of experience in entrepreneurship, software development, UX/UI design, copy writing, growth marketing and more.


About Obeyo

The problem we found is that it was hardly possible to provide smart and affordable hotel-like services in urban apartments. Over the last few months we worked with our partner, developing the initial idea into a value proposition based on facts. After a prototyping phase we built the first version of the software, which is in use at a launching customer in Amsterdam. The platform connects service partners, property managers and smart devices. Through an app residents can order services like Laundry and Housekeeping, and control smart features in their apartments (for example, lights). They can also chat with a concierge through the app and find information about hotspots in their surroundings.


Your responsibility as a co-founder

It is your job to take our blueprint and build, measure, learn and pivot your way to a profitable company. Sales, marketing and everything required to grow the customer base are an important part of your daily activities. Later, you'll create your own team and work on the company culture.


You are fully responsible for:

  • Business development
  • Roadmap and Product management
  • Creating a culture for growth
  • Marketing
  • Scaling the operation
  • Etc. (and many more)

You'll be accompanied by a technical co-founder to take on this great opportunity. And don't forget, our startup studio team helps you through the first rough months.


Job benefits

The opportunity to be an entrepreneur. Launch a company under controlled circumstances and with a safety net.

  • Equity in the company.
  • A good salary. 
  • A bunch of fresh, entrepreneurial, ambitious colleagues from the Builders team, a.k.a. your safety net.
  • A MacBook Pro, with maxed out options.
  • A great office space for you and your team next to Rotterdam Central Station (Groothandelsgebouw).
  • We Are Builders stickers for you and your friends.
  • Fresh fruits during the day.
  • The best Friday drinks in the Groothandelsgebouw.


If the above didn't scare you off, here's what we look for in applications:

  • You have working experience in the field of real estate, hospitality, startups and/or IoT.
  • A passion for entrepreneurship. You know it if you have it.
  • Unbounded energy.
  • You're an authentic problem-solver, a pro-active strategic thinker and pragmatist: you’re able to formulate a strategy, translate it into actions and then execute or delegate.
  • You have a European passport or a valid long-term visa for The Netherlands.
