Create new platform products

As we are starting with a blank slate, we are searching for someone familiar with managing creating and testing new products and concepts, in particular the creation of platforms (i.e. products that facilitate the creation of products by third parties). You are familiar with lean startup, concept and prototype testing, user testing and lean analytics.

Experience with development teams

As our products are mostly digital you will have experience developing and launching products on mobile and web. It would be great if you launched products for developers or in the health space.

Diverse team

Along with data scientists, neuroscientists, user researchers, designers, strategists and developers you will work to create new services and have a direct impact on the success of the product. People in our team are from diverse backgrounds as Finland, Holland, US, Russia, Serbia, Greece, Spain and Venezuela and we normally talk in english (or spanish). We try to keep our processes as light as possible and apply lean startup, lean UX and a lot of prototyping.

On the beach

Our offices are literally on the beach in Barcelona and the views across the city and the see are great. Barcelona is known for its good food, architecture and weather.

Visa & relocation support

As most of us are not from Spain, we know that some help is needed with moving and getting a Visa. We will support you with that process (and your family).


We are looking for people with 5+ years experience in creating customer and business facing digital services, products, and platforms from scratch. You have experience in working with developers, designers and and data scientists.


As we are testing (remotely) in various countries, high level of written and spoken level of english is required, spanish, very highly valued. Portuguese and german is a plus.
