Entrepreneur First Team, Berlin

Entrepreneur First is where outliers come together.


Entrepreneur First is the world's leading Talent Investor

We invest in the world’s most ambitious technologists to help them build world-class deep tech startups from scratch. Since 2011, we’ve created over 150+ startups worth over $1.5 billion including Tractable, OpenCosmos, CloudNC and Cleo. Our major exits to date include Magic Pony, which was acquired by Twitter for a $150m. EF is backed by Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn) and Greylock Partners, Mosaic Ventures, Founders Fund, Lakestar and some of the world's best entrepreneurs.

You will be part of the Berlin Form Team. This team handles the EF experience from first conversation, through the moment people are selected to join, until they have an investable startup. This is the core of EF’s unique methodology.

The Form Team handles the following components:

Talent and Admissions: Support pre-EF’s initial offer

You will encourage the smartest and highest potential candidates to apply to the programme, then identify the best and brightest applicants from the pool. This is a unique challenge: no other organisation has found a way of assessing individuals’ raw potential to be founders.

  • Manage our talent outreach through sourcing and hiring pipelines
  • Manage the selection and interview process
  • Support the team in their day to day operations

Cultivation: Ensure everyone we offer to join EF, joins

Every person we offer that doesn’t join is a missed opportunity to build something massive. Your mission is to ensure offer holders know EF is the highest value use of their time.

  • Create a world class pre-joining experience for offer holders
  • Spend time with offer holders to ensure they join
  • Problem solve with selected offer holders to prepare them

Team building: Crack the code for founding teams

We have developed a robust team building method. But, there is still much to learn. Your mission is to build as many strong teams as possible.

  • Work with sole founders to help them progress into teams
  • Actively manage team breakups and formation.
  • Develop EF's team building frameworks.
  • Use EF's data to create optimal cofounding teams.

Ideation: Ensure the teams work on high potential ideas

We influence what ideas EF founders work on enormously. Your mission is to make these ideas as high potential as possible.

  • Work with EF founders to develop their ideas.
  • Develop EF's frameworks on ideation.

Requirements:

You should:

  • Be an expert problem solver who thinks on their feet
  • Have high EQ and enjoy working with technologists
  • Be extremely ambitious
  • Have a strong growth mindset
  • Have outstanding organisational skills (excel with process)

  • Be very comfortable with managing competing priorities
