What we do
Merantix is a pioneering technology lab and incubation platform for Artificial Intelligence. Our mission is to conceptualize, build and scale AI products that transform entire industries and organizations. During the last year Merantix has successfully established two successful ventures in medical imaging and autonomous driving, while many more pilots are in the pipeline. Merantix’ incubation platform is distinct in its access to world-class engineering talent, its trusted brand among corporations and regulators as well as its sophisticated technology stack to accelerate prototyping and productization. On our path to becoming Europe’s #1 breeding ground for AI products, we seek entrepreneurial minds that have the ambition to fully disrupt markets with the latest AI technology.
Merantix is looking for Entrepreneurs-in-Residence/ Founders, that are driven to disrupt traditional markets with AI and build an outstanding company with the help of a strong technical team, state of the art machine learning technology, operational support, and secured seed funding. If that resonates with you here is how your entrepreneurial path looks like:
Identify needs in a specific industry that can be solved with computer vision, natural language processing or other deep learning techniques and involve key opinion leaders
Conceptualize, test and substantiate product ideas
Acquire pilot customers and sell proof-of-concept projects to test the technical feasibility of the intended product
Lead and grow an organization that should cover all relevant profiles as well as a strong network of advisors
Close collaboration with a CTO to define, iterate and execute the product development as well as company roadmap
Lead the spin-off process and a subsequent fundraising round
Shape and grow your venture to the greatest organization in its industry
We define ourselves by a culture of ownership and friendship. We’re looking for driven, capable, visionary and thoughtful people with proven track record of personal, academic and professional achievement:
Strong leadership and analytical skills as well as the ability to set up an efficient organization
Strong expertise in your respective industry paired with a bold hypothesis on how you would use AI to disrupt that industry
Entrepreneurial drive, high ambition and the ability to achieve goals collaboratively
Excellent communication (verbal and written) and interpersonal skills to effectively communicate with biz and tech teams
Strong ability in creating a vision and successfully selling it to others
At least Bachelor’s degree and 2-3 years of professional work experience
During the incubation phase of 12 to 18 months you will be compensated as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence plus a commission from projects you sell to clients on the road to develop the minimum-viable-product. As soon as your venture is successfully spun-off from Merantix, you as a member of the founding team will hold a significant equity stake in the new company.
We are an equal-opportunity employer and value diversity. We consider all applications equally regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or gender identity. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply, and we can help with immigration.
