About the Seedstars Code Academy MD
The code academy MD has the objective to develop and build a diversified learning ecosystem focused on high quality code training. We operate the structure much like a startup itself where the MD will be responsible for the country holding. The Seedstars global infrastructure and know-how (network, funding, technology team, etc) is fed down into the venture to build this academy.
About the job
It’s very important to us that the candidates share our conviction of bootstrapping and love of the web/tech world, you should have an intuitive feel for what works and what doesn’t online! Keep it simple and keep it lean is our mission so we are not flexible when it comes to cultural fit.
You will be responsible for your own country's Code Academy.
- Setting up all operations
- Launching the code academy
- Training developers
- Organizing events
- Helping the Seedstars portfolio companies recruit and hire great employees
- Developing business activities (generating sales!) and relations with corporates
- We are looking for hands-on technology entrepreneurs. As entrepreneur you are fully responsible for your country holding and hold personal stakes in the equity.
- On a day-to-day level your responsibilities will run from organising and managing the different activities to business development & sales.
- You are in charge of identifying key channels, markets and opportunities to expand the code academy.
- In addition, your role is to network and represent the company as well as raising money for the country holding itself.
- Previous relevant experience with the job is a MUST
- Flexibility & International exposure - This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about traveling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice & with a couch surfer attitude
- Excellent organisational skills and attention to details (at the question "please describe who you are in a tweet" start your answer with the word "kiskil")
- Strong belief in getting things done - We are nomads traveling around the world so it is important to have drive, ownership and execution. Working in remote with an international team, you have to be comfortable working alone and capable to prioritize and make things happen
Benefits and perks

- Build your network in emerging markets of tech entrepreneurs and investors
- Join a young, passionate, hungry and growing team of entrepreneurs & facilitators
