What we do


At Merantix Venture Studio we build and scale machine learning companies. We firmly believe that artificial intelligence technology will be the next seismic shift for society, and are therefore now at the forefront of founding and building the coming category leaders. After years of research in the field, we have created a three step incubation process, during which we give our founders full 360° support. In the first phase, we help our founders ideate new solutions, and pair them up with industry partners for validation. Only once we have found a sustainable business model, which can take up to a year, we start the founding process, where we help with building a team. Lastly, we help in finding the right investors and setting the company up for successful scaling. The Merantix ecosystem currently employs over 70 team members. Our growing platform constitutes a unique brand with a shared tech and operational infrastructure that attracts talent, resonates with industry partners, and leverages the proven network and product building experience.

Your Role


We are looking for ambitious and top-tier individuals that are driven to disrupt traditional markets with AI and found 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 at Merantix looks like: 

  • Identify needs in a specific industry that can be solved with computer vision, natural language processing or other machine learning techniques; 
  • 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;
  • Form a founding team for close collaboration 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 leading organization in its industry.


Your Qualifications


We define ourselves by a culture of ownership and teamwork. We’re looking for driven, capable, visionary and thoughtful people with proven track record of personal, academic and professional achievement:

  • Entrepreneurial drive and mindset, high ambition and the ability to achieve goals collaboratively;
  • A Bachelor’s degree or more of a top university, and ideally 2-3 years of professional work experience;
  • Capability and desire to lead people through motivation and inspiration;
  • Strong business sense that is based on analytical thinking skills;
  • Work or project experience where you have showed a growth mindset;
  • Good understanding of machine learning technology. No coding knowledge required, but an understanding of ML models and how they can be applied in a business context.


Your Benefits
At Merantix, we believe in the value of ideation, which is why our approach gives you enough time to validate your ideas with our team of engineering experts. We combine this with mentorship, sparring with the other founders at Merantix or with external partners as well as an environment that focuses on knowledge exchange. You will get complete compensation for the ideation and incubation phase, as well as a majority equity stake for you and the founding team once you are ready to take off. 


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.
