Worldwide, public sewers are in a bad shape because of age and need to be inventoried and repaired. Methods to do this are still very analog and include manual labour in confined spaces. That’s why SpacePal is developing the most efficient and high-tech tools for the inspection and renovation companies to do what they do, better and faster.
The SewerMapper is a device that lowers automatically into sewer manholes, and locates, orientates, measures and inspects the manhole by the push of a button; no more workers going ‘down the drain’: only open the cover! SpacePal has gone through different prototypes, has first partners/distributor interests in the EU market, raised seed capital and is about to kick off with pilot projects.
You are the technical founder’s other half. To accelerate market entry and growth we need a go-getter with experience in go-to-market, value proposition and sales.
- Co-create sales and go-to-market strategy
- Visit prospects, partners and customers with co-founder
- Challenge them & question their status quo; show value of SpacePal
- Help us set up a marketing strategy and execute
- Establish strategic partnerships
Our ideal candidate preferably doesn’t think like an engineer. We need a gap-filler for a technical founder. You have an expertise in business development, love sales or marketing and have a good grasp of the other. With knowledge of the public sewer ecosystem or contacts in the sector, you are ahead of other candidates. However, this is not mandatory!
Next to working with a dynamic and ambitious engineer you will also meet and work with all the energetic people and other start-ups in the building. Working remotely when necessary / flexible hours is possible. You are joining a seed-funded start-up before scaling. Enjoy a wide variety of responsibilities, be part of it and make an important impact!
You can start this summer and are willing to stay a little while! We’re looking for a co-founder and sparring partner, not a freelancer! ;-)
From where / Location Start-up
SpacePal’s main office is in Wijnegem, Antwerp, where there are 3 meeting rooms, a fabrication lab, and other vibrant companies. Often, work is done from Ghent, at home or flex-desks like at The Krook. For best collaboration, 3 days a week should be spent at the same location, based on needs and preference.
