JOB DETAIL

Company Description

We are Stryber – the largest independent corporate portfolio builder in Europe.

We build corporate unicorns, help our clients launch new digital ventures from scratch (and fix the strategy behind it).

We are a team of 90+ exceptional venturers collaborating from Munich, Zurich, Kiev, and London. We come from over 22 countries and love to be excellent and different. At Stryber you can expect a no-bullshit, down-to-earth, yet high caliber work environment.

Our approach

We apply our own proven process to identify interesting market signals. We build web/mobile prototypes and MVPs to test and iterate these signals quickly in the market. We then scale the most promising ones to become leading solutions. We are full stack – from analytically sound investment theses over rapid MVPs to sophisticated deep-tech solutions, we have a variety of start-up projects ahead of us in several exciting verticals, such as FinTech, PropTech, Digital Health, Food & Beverage or MarTech. Among all corporate venture builders, we are the “strategic” one – we have a comprehensive view on strategy and governance questions around corporate venture building.

Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Venture Architect to join our team that can build the blueprint for new digital businesses and execute on that. You’re responsible for the strategy, stakeholder management, and team leadership. Our teams function as small, independent founder teams, and the Venture Architect is the acting CEO.

At Stryber you can expect a no-bullshit, down-to-earth, yet high caliber work environment. You will be part of the Stryber team – a dynamic team of top-notch experts that is highly motivated to create impact. Over the last five years, we have developed a solid and comprehensive framework for corporate innovation with a very thick secret sauce that is not easy to copy.

What to expect

As Venture Architect no one day will be the same. You will be the responsible person for a specific startup:

  • End-to-end responsibility, from idea validation to delivering the MVP
  • Lead your international startup team of co-founders from Product, UX Design, Growth, and Tech
  • Learn fast and fail fast. The typical startup duration is between 3-9 months
  • Stakeholder Management: You need to challenge them, but also align with them and pitch regularly for funding in the board and work with CxOs of the client organization to create synergies
  • Be part of a great team at Stryber and get support with solid methods
  • Work with international clients on a global scale

Qualifications

  • You hold a Bachelor’s degree or higher in the field of business, science, or engineering with outstanding academic results
  • You have founded a startup or have held a C-level position in a startup (preferably early stage) with significant achievements in your role
  • Alternatively, you have 5+ years experience in an innovation consulting firm, a top strategy consulting firm, or venture capital fund
  • You have extensive knowledge of lean startup and agile methodologies
  • You have also a solid experience in applying these in the startup life, as well as experience in leading cross-functional teams of 5+
  • If you have additional experience in venture capital, that’s a plus
  • You have demonstrated strong analytical and creative problem-solving skills
  • You are not afraid to get your hands dirty, have entrepreneurial grit, and you are passionate about startups
  • Willingness travel on a regular basis to work closely with the venture’s target audience
  • Fluent in English language
  • You are available full-time (part-time or freelance is not possible)

Benefits

  • Attractive compensation package
  • A great remote culture, which allows you to be very flexible; if you prefer to work from sunny beaches or cool mountains from time to time, feel free – just be prepared to get some jealous messages from us on Slack or to receive even more awesome photos in return
  • Unique “move fast & break things” culture and a highly dynamic and energetic environment
  • Fame and glory for what you will have helped build
  • Huge opportunity for personal growth and fascinating projects that actually creates impact
  • Attractive office in the middle of Munich
