About the job

Highline Beta is hiring a CEO for a stealth B2C mobile app startup, currently being developed in our venture studio. The new startup is focused on the loneliness epidemic. There is a widespread and growing feeling of social isolation and disconnection among individuals. Despite increased connectivity through social media, many people report feeling lonelier than ever before. Loneliness has been linked to a range of negative health outcomes, including mental health issues and physical health problems.

Our mission is to reconnect humanity 1 to 1, helping people get one step closer to happiness. This is not a dating app.

We're aiming to launch in early 2025.

Work has already begun on validating the opportunity, product scope, brand and more. Highline Beta is developing this startup with a partner (to be disclosed in the future).

As CEO you will lead the company with a focus on go-to-market strategy, user acquisition and partnerships. Highline Beta will lead product development capabilities. Our partner is leading the initial pre-seed and seed financing.

Despite the CEO title, you will need to get your hands dirty and work with a small, nimble team. This startup is going from 0 to 1 and we are not looking for a "manager" but someone that can execute work at the grassroots level.

You can be located anywhere, but our preference is in the Eastern Time Zone. You will receive a salary and equity compensation.

Responsibilities

  • Strategic Leadership: Develop and implement the company's vision, mission and overall strategy in alignment with our goal to address loneliness.
  • Marketing & User Acquisition: Drive user acquisition strategies, leveraging your expertise in marketing and partnerships to build a strong user base.
  • Partnership Development: Establish and maintain strategic partnerships that enhance our product offering and market reach.
  • Stakeholder Management: Collaborate with Highline Beta and our partner to ensure alignment and support in achieving our company milestones.
  • Team Building: Recruit, manage and inspire a high-performing team, fostering a culture of innovation, collaboration and excellence.
  • Product Development: Use your product management experience to guide the product team, ensuring a user-centric approach to development and continuous improvement.
  • Financial Management: Work closely with Highline Beta and our partner to manage the company's financial health, including budgeting, forecasting and securing additional funding as needed.

Qualifications

  • B2C Experience: Proven track record in building, launching and scaling B2C mobile app businesses; ideally from 0 to 1 and beyond. Ideally you've been a startup CEO before and/or helped grow an early stage startup to massive user adoption.
  • Marketplace Experience: Having experience building and scaling marketplaces is beneficial, ideally consumer-focused marketplaces.
  • Marketing Expertise: Strong background in growth marketing, user acquisition and partnerships, with demonstrable success in growing a user base.
  • Strategic Thinker: Ability to think strategically and execute methodically, balancing short-term objectives with long-term goals.
  • Passion for Impact: A deep passion for making a positive impact on people's lives and addressing the issue of loneliness through innovative technology solutions.
  • Leadership Skills: Exceptional leadership and team-building skills, with the ability to inspire and drive a team towards common goals.
  • Product Management: Familiarity with product management principles and practices, ensuring the development of a user-centric product.

Your Mindset:

We're looking for a leader that loves getting things done.

  • You have an "owner" mentality not a "renter" one
  • You don't mind getting your hands dirty / no job is too small
  • You believe in the power of people and team as the only way to succeed
  • You're generous and open-minded
  • You're keen on philosophy and/or behavioral science
