CPO - Chief Product Officer

Looking for a challenge with purpose & meaning? We need a CPO to help our non-profit startup take the next big step in bringing personal growth and mental health tools to the world, for free.

What we believe

At 29k we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. And if we can unleash people's ability to live more meaningful lives they, in‌ ‌turn, will improve the world through their actions. 

We believe that by combining the best tools psychology has to offer, with human connection (live video sharing), we can have a profound impact on the mental growth and wellbeing of adults.

Who we are

29k is a non-profit founded by the Norrsken Foundation and Ekskäret Foundation, with research partners at Karolinska and Harvard, tasked with building a free and open platform for personal development. We have a 5-year goal of improving the lives of 5 million people, and a long term goal of reaching a threshold where we see systemic change in the world.

We are a small, close-knit team of skilled and motivated people who truly believe the world can and needs to be changed for the better. Our app was recently soft-launched to the App Store and Google Play.

Where we are

The 29k app is now live. The focus for us now is to ensure that we've nailed the product market fit for our first big product launch with our influencer partner (Yoga Girl) to millions of followers on instagram. Once we've launched in a big way, our focus will shift to scaling the experience both in terms of content, but also in terms of audience.

What we're looking for

As the CPO, your responsibility is to own the strategic and holistic view on the following areas of product development:

  • Strategy - what is the product plan ahead and what do we bet on?
  • Staffing - what are the competencies needed in the team to execute the strategy
  • Research - who are our end users, how do they interact with our platform and what are their biggest pain points? 
  • Ideation - what is our next step, how do we find it and how do we validate it? How do we leverage the collective creative potential in our team and stakeholders?
  • Design - make sure we have a well defined process from research, ux, visual design, implementation and analytics 
  • Planning - what are our priorities and milestones 
  • Execution - work closely with our development team, designers and stakeholders within an agile environment
  • Management - Grow, support and hire the Product design team

Who you are

For you to be successful in this role, you must have an interest in personal growth and be willing to learn & grow, as a means to building empathy for the kind of product we are trying to build and how deep, meaningful and difficult this kind of inner work is. We believe that this is a huge perk of the role, if you have this interest!

  • You’re passionate about personal growth and doing something meaningful for the world
  • You are excellent at communication and story telling
  • You can bring structure to a rapidly changing environment
  • You’re passionate about building products that people love
  • You’re great at making sense of complexity and ambiguity
  • You help the team and the company focus on what’s most important for the product
  • You’re capable of balancing formulating and expressing high level product strategy with the day to day running of a development team

You love solving complex problems through an action-based approach & love getting things done. You're not a lone-wolf-genius, instead you're passionate about involving others perspectives in finding solutions. You have spent a few years in leading a complex platform, preferably consumer facing and have gone through the entire product lifecycle or been part of a growing start-up from the early days. Preferably you have experience in building digital platforms and have gone through your own journey of personal growth.
