Edventures Norrköping, Sweden
Nov 05, 2018
The Startup Economical growth is the most important factor for creating long term values for humanity. Un-or underemployment among youths is already alarmingly high, and rising. Income disparities are increasing. New companies and innovative startups are important for future economical growth and increased independence for citizens, but the innovation ecosystem has many barriers for potential entrepreneurs. Today, there's no solution to get quality feedback and guidance on ideas or innovations on a vast scale over a longer term that is relevant to the user. This limits the number of innovations that potentially can become expansive companies and organizations. This is what we want to change - not just for the founders but for all stakeholders of a company. Entrepreneurship is a way of creating financial and social independence, and by doing so also reduce inequalities regarding both gender and income. We want to make an impact - not just in Sweden, but in all parts of the world. If we succeed with our mission, we’ll be able to guide and assist every single user with individually tailored advice, adapted for their unique situation and preferences, in order to help them set up, run and grow their own businesses. No matter where in the world they are. No matter how few resources they have.

Need to know/have: Interest in and some experience of NLP, NLU, NLG Interest in and some experience of Tensorflow Python NodeJS Git Good backend skills (maybe with a desire to become more of a full-stack developer, if you aren't one already) In order to make our core-functionality stellar, we need to have a stellar personality in charge of the design and development of this function. We don’t care that much about extensive experience and a fancy portfolio, but rather that you have a nerdy passion for programming and that you wish to grow within this domain. We also believe that the biggest motivation comes from within. Therefore it’s important that you too care, or at least have opinions, on the global impact we strive to achieve for young entrepreneurs worldwide. We believe that you are currently studying or working as a main activity but aiming to grow with this role and eventually transition in to a full-time occupation as we get the funding required. We can offer you endless opportunities to develop both your professional and private skills and interests. We work closely with a rich variety of customers, meaning that flexibility is the only ”routine” we follow. We don’t do business hours, we work wherever and whenever we like. We’re currently at prototype stage, meaning we have a long road ahead. That’s why we need you on our team to make a good service great and together shape the way we create a global impact for entrepreneurs, dreamers and doers. We’re looking for a person that like to take responsibility, come up with solutions and can work independently within the team. You’ll have a lot of influence - both in your domain of expertise but also on how we shape our company culture. Initially we'll have to try out if you're a good fit for the role, that's why the initial test period will be setup as a consultancy/freelance relationship (hence the monthly compensation). Hopefully we'll be a match made in heaven and you'll become one of the co-founders when the test period is over.
