Minc is looking for a tech-oriented coach!

Are you our new team member?

Are you experienced in technology and product development in a startup savvy way? Are you interested in helping growing startups and entrepreneurs with their product development? 

Oftentimes, startup founders have great ideas and visions, but could use a hand in the product management and technology process. This is an opportunity for an experienced tech leader/product manager to help Mincs startups navigate their product build in the technology space. 

As our specialist in-house tech-coach you will be part of a team of coaches in the Minc house, providing 1-2-1 support and advice to our startups. You will be working closely on specific product development problems and help our startups make smart decisions, for instance, whether to ‘build-or buy’, how to build things to test and measure customer demand, how to build a scalable product and make key decisions around technical architecture, technical hiring, etc. 

You will also help our investment committee with technical input, along with leading our Tech Board which consists of a group of experts offering mentoring and advice to a number of Minc startups.

We think you have the following experience: 

  • Founder/ Co-founder, CTO of a startup, product manager  and/or 
  • Technical leadership, CTO or product management roles
  • A ‘prototyping mindset’ and in the know what useful tools are available on the shelves
  • An ability to think commercially and understand the startups and business 
  • Have some experience in coaching or advising early-stage startups 
  • Have a coaching attitude and approach
  • Have an open mind and a willingness to learn and develop
  • Have great listening, communication and facilitation skills 
  • Be a dedicated team player
  • Have a desire to help people and startups to grow and develop
  • Fit the Minc principles of diversity and inclusion, being bold and being transparent and our values of respect, engagement, and creativity

 

What you will get in return: 

  • An opportunity to give back to the community of driven startup entrepreneurs
  • Make a significant difference to the startup you mentor by providing your skills and expertise around the tech build      
  • A chance to contribute to a better tech space in Skåne
  • A chance to work with a passionate, knowledgeable, and engaged team of colleagues striving to help startups grow and flourish. 

How to apply?
