Your mission
As Founders Associate, your mission is to drive the strategic direction of Lhotse, together with the Founders. You are essential to the success of Lhotse - assessing options and opportunities to follow (and not to follow).


You are responsible for identifying opportunities and directions for Lhotse to follow, as well as assessing their potential and implications for the company. Your role has a strong commercial focus and includes the following responsibilities:

  • Define and drive the implementation of our commercial set-up, incl. sales strategy and go-to-market
  • Support the founders in upcoming financing rounds
  • Generate insights on the attractiveness of obvious and not so obvious sales & marketing channels
  • Identify and lead strategic projects
  • Drive operational excellence across Lhotse functions, e. g., Growth, Marketing, Product, Ops and Customer Success
Your profile
You are a young professional with a high degree of motivation and sense of responsibility for what you do! You love taking on challenges and challenging the status quo. You work directly with the Founders and are Lhotse’s first commercial hire - we are looking for a role model!  

  • You like to take on responsibility and drive your own progress 
  • You demonstrate strong analytical skills and have a hands-on mentality 
  • You have first work experience in demanding, fast-paced environments (e. g., MBB, investment banking, high-growth startups, etc.)
  • You are in your final / semi-final year of Bachelor or Masters studies at a top tier university
  • Your judgement allows you to decide when done is better than perfect and vice versa
  • You are curious and like to challenge the status-quo
  • You share our culture based on an open mindset, high standards and pragmatism 
  • You communicate as confidently in English as in German
How to apply
  • Send us your CV or LinkedIn profile (if you believe it paints an adequate picture of your profile)
  • Please don’t send a cover letter - instead, we’d like to read or hear why you want to be part of Lhotse: a short paragraph or a 1 min voice message works!
