Full Job Description
Some people dream about our future world. You'll help build it.
There are plenty of jobs out there. Countless roles, positions, and careers, all competing for your time, energy, and investment. But how often are you offered a chance to reboot the entire planet?
That's just what Mach49 has been doing through each and every one of our partnerships since our inception: building a more sustainable and vibrant future for all. In our latest collaboration, we're partnering with a dynamic client to build Portfolio T, a pipeline of ventures and investments that will nurture the environment; create new ways of living in community and harmony; provide pride, place, purpose to its inhabitants; and develop technologies across a broad array of sectors to empower humankind.
To tackle this expansive mission, you'll collaborate with a team of dreamers and doers from around the world, leveraging Mach49's unique methodology and network. Because of the monumental scope of the project, you'll be hired into Portfolio T, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mach49. Eventually, the subsidiary will spin off into an independent company that will continue crafting change. Depending on your expertise, you may be creating new ventures, determining promising startups to invest in, hosting events and venture competitions, or building and managing the engine that will drive our client's vision.
If it sounds too good to be true, it's not. If it sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, it is. And if it sounds like something you need to be part of —keep reading.
Who We Are
Mach49 partners with global businesses to enable them to develop their own pipeline or portfolio of new ventures and investments that disrupt existing markets and create new ones. We work with our clients to deliver the essential features of a successful growth engine: Venture Building, Venture Investing, Strategic Partnering, and Targeted M&A.
Portfolio T, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Mach49, is the Venture Studio for a global technology and digital company currently operating in stealth mode. But we're unlike any venture studio you've experienced before.
What Sets Us Apart
At Portfolio T, we work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment with a start-up vibe —but we also benefit from the stability and resources of an established company. We're good at what we do and we like doing it; the success rate of Mach49 ventures is over 90% because we're driven by our mission and supported by a network of smart, friendly, execution-focused pros.
How We Work
We attract people who thrive in ambiguity and are always looking for new, innovative ways to tackle old problems. People who are unafraid of navigating a fast-paced environment and can make sense of incoming information quickly, while maintaining strong working relationships and continuing to drive progress forward. More than anything, we attract people who are forward-thinking and values-driven in their work, people who are consciously dedicated to improving our world with sustainable solutions.
