Captain of Trajectory

Captain of Trajectory at Shipping Project

WATTx is looking for a Captain of Trajectory who will lead the research and prototyping development in one of the hottest areas in IoT. One of our research areas focuses on shipping and the opportunities that have risen from an industry suffering from space and energy inefficiencies, fierce competition, and high costs in an age of growing (cheaper) train transport. We are orchestrating dedicated field research to gather user input first-hand, derive problematics, and prioritize our prototyping efforts. The overall goal is to build a solution that solves a big need within the shipping ecosystem, and hence has all of the ingredients of a successful venture to be funded: product-market fit, pilot customers, and a proven prototype.

We want to hear from you so you can start your mission as soon as possible.

What you need to start your mission:

  • 3-5 years of relevant working experience in an dynamic environment focused on technology, innovation, or company building, ideally related to logistics. Entrepreneurial experience is highly appreciated, executive experience a plus.
  • An energetic, team player mindset with strong leadership experience.
  • A bachelor’s degree complemented by strong practical experience; a master’s degree in IT, engineering, business, supply chain management or the like is highly appreciated.
  • You know your way around data analytics and offering data services.
  • You treasure independence, flexibility, speed, and an international mindset like we do.
  • The ability to create a demanding and supportive working environment.
  • The ability to communicate transparently and effectively within your own team as well as with key stakeholders such as clients and investors.
  • A structured approach to work that helps your team reach its targets.

What your mission entails:

  • The freedom to direct research efforts and to identify novel problematics and opportunities.
  • Leverage our best in class team to prototype cutting-edge solutions.
  • Early adopters and lead customers.
  • A competitive compensation package with a clear path to becoming a founder (CEO or CTO) of our next startup.
  • A network of partners to help you build your prototype and transition to a new venture every step of the way.
  • An unparalleled adventure and an opportunity to fulfill your entrepreneurial goals by building actual technology and solving real problems.

How we will support you:

  • We will onboard you to the ongoing field research and make sure that all knowledge is passed on to you.
  • We will provide the necessary infrastructure.
  • The freedom and support to prototype and provide resources to build our next startup.
