We’re experts at managing open innovation and acceleration projects with highly-curated startups, and in designing products and services alongside in-company teams.

Since the start in 2010, Beta-i has connected thousands of entrepreneurs, mentors, experts, investors, and knowledge institutions to solve things that matter.

About the department and role:

Beta-i is making a shift towards becoming even more data-driven and we aim to build a unique and intelligent platform to store and work with our data. We call it Beta-base. The goal with Beta-base is to better understand, analyze and be able to extract intelligence from our data. 

The foundation is laid, and now we are looking for a highly motivated Full-stack developer that wants to play a key role in taking Beta-base to the next level. This is a strategic project that will have implications on all areas of Beta-i’s business; from the core in how we scout and deliver our programs, to our sales, finance, and talent team.

What you will do:

You will be working closely together with one other developer and with a small, non-technical team to define the end-product and goals. Further, you will build the platform from scratch, integrating all Beta-i’s different sources of data and building a strong and scalable back-end structure. You will also build the front-end with the support of our design team. During the process, you will identify, design and prioritize new product features. You will, together with one other developer, be the main decision-maker on technical matters and work independently with the implementation.
