Opportunity: CEO, Europe

CEO, Europe


Our client is a disruptive and innovative robotics company that develops robot-independent AI software for the fast and flexible deployment of pick-and-place robots. They are enabling robotic hardware to be taken to a new level of functionality with each device gaining self-learning, autonomy and situational awareness capabilities. They have successfully adopted a SaaS model for their software.

Having recently closed a round of funding, the board requires a commercial CEO to lead the company from a technical innovator through the commercial scale-up phase.

We are looking for a CEO with a strong mix of commercial and business leadership skills that can lead and drive the “go-to-market”.

The successful candidate:

  • Will have been CEO of a VC backed company – either scale-up or significant size company in either Robotics, Software-as-a-Service or from the fulfilment eco-system (warehouse management, logistics, procurement, order management etc).
  • Will have a good commercial and P&L track record – sales achievement and cost control.
  • Will have had experience of fundraising and ideally M&A transaction capabilities
  • Will have experience with an “as-a-service” model and knows how to commercialize and scale.
  • Will have achieved successful high growth, rapid scale up, driving companies to become a significant player in an international market.


Please note: this position can be based anywhere in Europe.

Please note: We can only consider responses from candidates that have been a CEO/CCO in a venture-backed business.
