myDogBuddy, an innovative peer-to-peer online marketplace for dog services is now looking for an intelligent and energetic professional to join the company as a COO and co-founder. You will share top management responsibilities with the founder/ CEO and together make myDogBuddy the leading marketplace for pet services in Europe.

You will work closely with the CEO, Richard Setterwall, taking the company to the next level. Some of the areas you might tackle include discovering and building new partnerships for us; the design, implementation and improvement of key business processes, ensuring operational excellence; managing national and international expansion; devising creative growth opportunities and much, much more.

Requirements:

  • 5+ years of experience where you showed real career progress, be that ecommerce, marketing, operations, sales, strategy consultancy, finance or something else. It’s not about what you know right now, but how you will take the underlying skills and reapply them inside myDogBuddy.
  • Demonstrable interest in technology and the start-up world – if you aren’t already in a start up, you should have already been out getting to know the movers and shakers in the scene!
  • Analytical mentality and sound business judgment through strong data-driven thinking.
  • Entrepreneurial mindset – You MUST be a doer not a theorizer – success in a start-up is all about fast, smart action. Every opportunity needs to be seized and made the most of!
  • Leadership and motivation – you can get people to believe in your vision and then motivate them to help you deliver it. We are going to be building a high-performing team and they need to WANT to follow you.

 

Bonus points if you have any/all of the following:

  • Experience from the pet industry
  • Experience in start-up / fast growing small business.
  • Experience in digital marketplaces
