👌What We Need
Our incubator creates entirely new products from scratch and turns promising concepts into prototypes, and ultimately an MVP, validating decisions commercially along the way to attract a founding team that can spin out into a fully-fledged business. As our Concepting Business Analyst, you'll be working directly with our corporate investors to identify new business opportunities. You’ll tease out problems, map out market analysis, conceptualise solutions in the form of experience flows, and validate them with consumers. This involves deep research into trends, so we seek individuals who walk the line between product and business.
You have a curious and creative mind, eager to understand what makes people tick, but have the ability to look at things from a business point of view. You should love impacting the direction of product strategy and working across different projects with lots of competing priorities at rapid pace. You should thrive in a startup environment and subscribe to lean methodologies and principles of product development.
👟Our CultureLet’s be honest, Founders Factory is not for everyone. Working with us is very different than other companies. Not just a job – instead, a pursuit that we live and breathe every single day. We are resilient business builders, thrive in uncertainty, and are incredibly passionate. We want to develop a deeper understanding of the conditions that lead to successful innovation and are hoping to show that there’s a better way to build tech startups and take on the issue that most startups fail. We are creating something meaningful and get paid to learn at an incredible pace. To Learn More, Check Out This Link.
