Are you looking for an exciting entrepreneurial challenge?

In today's industries, emergency stops are required within reach of long and dangerous machines, a challenge that is often handled with linear emergency stops. However, today's solutions are complex to install and require significant maintenance to ensure proper operation and avoid accidents resulting from malfunctions, or frequent unanticipated emergency shutdowns, resulting in lost production. In addition, they open up the possibility of circumventing the safety requirements while the machine is still in operation.

Our innovative solution offers easy installation, reliable operation and is tamper resistant. Through an extensive market analysis among 600 conveyor facilities in the mining industry as well as interviews with potential customers and installers, we have identified a clear need for our more robust product.

The role
In this broad CEO role, you will be primarily responsible for driving this idea from concept stage to full implementation. This includes business development, concept development, creating strategic plans, creating milestones and goals.

You will also drive the work to secure a sustainable business model, find customers and suitable investments for the company, and also build teams for the future. For the right person, co-ownership will be offered after a trial period.

Market potential
Our primary target markets include companies and organizations with existing linear emergency stops, suppliers and installers of such systems, and other businesses that would choose linear emergency stops if they were easier to install and maintain. Examples of industries include mines, quarries, sawmills, concrete plants, and other industries with long, dangerous machinery, such as paper mills.

Financing and Established Test Customers
Initial financing is secured to drive the company forward and we have potential test customers in the mining industry. Over the years, the company's founder has built up strong relationships within heavy industry as a consultant, which gives us favorable opportunities for continued collaboration. In addition, we have carried out a news review which shows that our solution is patentable.

Who are we looking for?
We would like to see that you have an entrepreneurial background with experience in running companies, held senior positions where you independently pushed ideas forward, or worked with business ideas using Lean Startup methodology. You are comfortable making strategic decisions and implementing both short-term and long-term plans for the company's success.
