    Job description

    What we do: Identify and support the best founders to co-build operational SaaS with our in-house experts and manufacturer network.

    These softwares will support the transformation of European factories into Smart Factories by accelerating their process of digitalization.

    We have a unique and specialized product development process that hinges on extensive user research among factory operators and multiple product iterations. The goal? Creating an intuitive, beautiful software product that improves the users’ daily lives.

    We are not an investment fund or an incubator, we are a startup studio. We leverage our network to determine what products need to be built, then we hire co-founders to build them with us and launch a startup. We keep 20% of the startup, the founders keep 80%.

    Our history: Founded in 2019, OSS has since launched 10 successful startups.

    Prior to launching OSS Ventures, we gained extensive operational experience as site directors, business development knowledge at large corporations and startups (L’Oréal, Hewlett-Packard, Chance), and built 80k-strong communities.

    Our values:

    • Build - We move fast. To do that, we tackle our tasks and objectives with a can-do attitude.
    • Fail, learn, succeed - Failure is an opportunity to learn, and a pit stop on the way to success.
    • Faith - We have faith in our users, industrial partners, and each other. And by having faith in these people, we have faith in our ability to build a better future.

    • Create & share value - Redistributing the value created in our communities allows us all to advance more quickly.
Fck Mediocrity - We don’t want to be a part of an average system, and we don’t judge the people stuck in them.

    Preferred experience

    The job
    As CEO of a startup, you will:

    • Co-build the startup with our team of experts in product dev, tech, and marketing/growth and your CTO co-founder in our Paris office (Opéra).
    • Understand the painpoints of your industrial clients and nurture relationships with them.
    • Reach 500Ke ARR in 6 months.
    • Secure fundraising for an 18-month runway (you’ll do the heavy lifting, we’ll provide expert advice, connections, and plenty of feedback on those pitch decks).
    • Create and document the culture, structure, and vision of your company.
    • Recruit your team.
    • All the rest.

    About you:

    • You are passionate about changing the world of manufacturing, even if you do not have any experience with it.
    • You are ready to learn (fast!) and want to take ownership of the technical structure of a SaaS startup product.
    • You have great written and spoken English skills, and ideally are bilingual in French.
    • You are ambitious, a do-er, and looking forward to collaborating with a team that values your expertise.

    Recruitment process

    Recruitment process

    • Pre-qualification call
    • First interview with Quentin, CTO of OSS
    • Second interview with Baptiste+Elise, our operations manager and head of UX design, respectively. As two key members of our product dev team, they will work closely with you and your co-founder.
    • Third interview with Jean-Philippe, our CRO
    • Final interview with Renan, our CEO

    • Team lunch to celebrate the excitement of launching a startup, together!

    We know, it’s a pretty long process. But we are building a company together that will last for years. That’s why we think it’s important for us to spend time together before committing to a project.

    Everyone is welcome.

    We fundamentally believe talent is distributed to all of us in equal measure. This means we see your unique experience and believe in the strength of every intersection of race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic, or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity.
    Moreover, we believe that to be engaged at work, you must feel valued and included in the office. We strive to build and nurture an inclusive and professional culture to ensure the comfort and happiness of our employees and co-founders.
