Are you an amazing technical leader?
AirBliss+® has recently completed the best Hardware Startup Accelerator HighTechXL on the HighTech Campus in Eindhoven. With access to the rich tech network on campus with Philipps, ASML as well as other great tech companies and organisations, we hope to soon welcome on board our CTO co-founder!
At AirBliss+® we are keen to make a significant impact in helping commuters who cycle or walk to protect themselves against the dramatic effects of air pollution in the big cities. While the media coverage on air pollution is huge in a city like London, the actions taken by the policy maker are still insufficient. To tackle this difficult-to-accept situation, AirBliss+® team designed the most comfortable, elegant and smart anti-pollution respiratory. Our device is a real piece of technology, enhancing the safety of the wearer while measuring in real time critical air pollution levels. The crowdsourced and anonymous measured data will deliver more accurate air pollution maps alerting the community efficiently.
If you live and breathe electronics design and/or mechanical engineering, and would love to help deliver the best solution to daily commuters in busy and highly polluted areas, we want to hear from you! We are looking for a passionate CTO and co-founder who loves developing ambitious new products roadmap and industrializing innovations/prototypes to mass production.
We will launch a trial phase of our MVP in London this summer. Our main concerns are the wearer comfort and safety. We would like to drive the technical aspects to bring out interesting optimisations on the mechanical design and DFM. We also need to develop further our electronics board to include environmental sensors sub-assembly.
We are adept of the “get out of the building” attitude and as such we all meet and talk to customers as often as possible. We are clear on the main specifications while open to what could add an edge to our product against the competition and finally solve the comfort issue with pollution masks.
Following the trial phase, we will launch an ambitious Kickstarter campaign to attract pre-orders and boost the awareness of our product and brand in the market.
We have a “learn to be a learner” culture at AirBliss+®, we love to be challenged and engaged in innovative ways. There are no “stupid” questions! Be as creative as you feel comfortable with to develop new growth strategies, as well as plan, execute, measure experiments and conversion tests to validate your ideas. As we will grow and need to structure further our organisation, we would like you to lead end-to-end technical projects.
We are a dynamic and diverse team, and are passionate about what we want to achieve in our beachhead market (London). We have great ambitions to next tap into the huge Chinese and Japanese markets. We are lucky to live in an extraordinary time where nothing is technically impossible as long as we persist with enthusiasm and discipline.
