Growth Lead

Job description

At Builders, we dream big, and we dare to turn our dreams into reality. The single most important goal of our studio is to build companies that solve daily challenges for modern-day workforces. To achieve this, we rigorously follow a process of creating and operating SaaS startups by internally generating, conceptualizing, and validating promising business ideas and by finding the right co-founders to build powerful tech companies together.

Our Growth Lead is a key figure of the studio's well-oiled machine. It is an exceptional data-driven individual who is an excellent creative thinker, storyteller, and innovator. The one who sees things differently and brings up new ideas to challenge the status quo. Where others see obstacles, the Growth Lead sees an opportunity. It is both strategist and executioner that can lead by example as well as execute on his own. At Builders, a Growth Lead wears many hats to drive the growth of both our studio and ventures inside our portfolio.

The creative thinker who helps put Builders on the map

To achieve our ambitious goals, we need to be seen. We strive to create a strong, established brand in the startup studio world. So that entrepreneurs, investors, and potential partners go above and beyond to become part of our universe. We make a great effort in making this happen by focusing on three key objectives:

  • Build and facilitate a network of ambitious entrepreneurs and tech talent;
  • Scout and attract potential investors;
  • Promote our brand in the startup ecosystem.

Our Growth Lead supports our team in reaching these objectives by designing and executing growth marketing strategies. To put it simply, you experiment and reiterate upon results to develop the most fitting approach on how we can reach and inspire the right people.

The innovator who brings more champagne moments

At the onset of each new venture is a spark. And at its peak of success, spark turns into champagne. From a bold business idea to a thriving technology company, many steps lay between these two stages. At Builders, our main focus is to make the journey from spark to champagne as smooth as possible by providing our co-founders with both operational and capital support. As a key element of our venture creation process comes growth; to foster the growth of our ventures, we primarily engage in three sets of activities:

  • Designing and executing growth frameworks to scale our SaaS ventures;
  • Supporting our co-founders in building high-performance growth teams;
  • Continuously experimenting and validating to optimise existing growth processes.

Our Growth Lead takes end-to-end ownership of these activities. It is your responsibility to validate assumptions and gain actionable insights by designing and conducting data-driven experiments.
