Talent

For our portfolio companies and some new projects we are working on, we are looking for talented young people that live and breathe Internet and mobile, with a lot of energy to get start up projects off the ground and the desire to see a company grow from the very beginning. All teams are characterized by a high level of energy and dedication, a strong focus on results and output, and the drive to build new businesses online. We value every team member’s input and creativity, and learn from each other all the time. We “copy with pride” what works, and “in data we trust” for all decisions we take. You won’t find a 9 to 5 job with us. But an environment that is passionate about entrepreneurship and creating new businesses.

Should you feel passionate about what we do but not find a specific job on this page, do get in touch. Send us your CV, a brief letter of motivation and your possible starting date to jobs@alpha-iv.com Applications that do not include all of the three requirements mentioned will not be considered.

Ideally you bring along proven experience in medium-large D2C internet ventures from an early stage, even better if as a (co-) founder or in an early leadership position.

We build companies fast and in a sustainable way.
We replicate what works and fix what doesn’t.
We see solutions where others find problems.
We never take no for an answer.
We constantly question the status quo.
You should share these values.

With us you will find an environment and team that makes launching your company easy and stimulating. We help you getting the funding for your start up. And we facilitate all other aspects of the business, from technology and design to marketing, business development and sales.

FOUNDER

Boris Hageney

Founder

With 15 years of track record in the web and mobile consumer internet space, Boris’ passion lies in building businesses from scratch and growing them to success.

Prior to Alpha Internet Ventures, Boris founded CityDeal/Groupon in Italy, Spain and Portugal and ran the entire Southern Europe region as an IVP for Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN). Under his tenure, the region grew to the most successful and profitable one within Groupon, with a relatively small headcount and thrifty yet efficient operations. At the time Groupon was called the “Fastest Growing Company – Ever” by Forbes Magazine. Prior to Groupon, Boris founded Spain’s first price comparison site in the telco, banking and insurance markets (tarifas24) and launched and grew a range of markets in Southern and Western Europe as well as North America for Jamba/Jamster.

Boris holds a Master’s degree from the Freie Universität Berlin (Germany) and studied at Sorbonne in Paris (France). He occasionally holds courses, trainings and panels at ESADE and ISDI in Spain.

The passion for discovering new frontiers led Boris to numerous journeys in a range of countries. The most recent one was documented on www.eurasia2013.com, a 58.000km trip by car from Madrid (Spain) to Vladivostok (Russia) and back, crossing 40 countries.
