Salary Unpaid
Equity To be negotiated

Leading operations at a company with large potential of innovation and international sales is something you have been dreaming of or maybe this is exactly what you have been doing before? If you have affinity with music and piano's in particular, then this might be your chance. This role is about managing sales, marketing, stakeholders, finance, administration and supplies - It should be your fun in life to streamline processes and to optimize flows on a daily basis, having a vision of possibilities and working towards those in a pragmatic way. Affinity with wood-working and production in general will be an advantage as well.

You will have the ability to shape a company and processes, see impact of your work and give meaning to your time through making a significant change for the better for many piano enthusiasts.

The wide range of things you will be working with is exactly what makes you a hustler. You need to be very self motivating and disciplined, to make things work that lay outside of your comfort zone. You will need a large portion of start-up spirit every day.

Keybird Instruments IVS is a start-up developing a lightweight acoustic piano. We have a large waiting list of customers and therefor want to get a grip on our in-house production as well as outsourcing to be able to deliver. We want to see how far we can get with direct sales through our own webshop and communication channels, and meanwhile look into retail strategies. Many things are happening, so if you like the process of starting a company and all the little side things that happen in such a process, that will be to your advantage.

We started developing a lightweight acoustic piano, hoping to offer the world a more practical "keys" instrument, without compromising on acoustic sound which is preferred by the vast majority of piano enthusiasts. Our mission is to bring diversity and accessibility to the world of acoustic pianos, since acoustic pianos as we know them today are very hard to transport, take up much space and have been streamlined to sound more or less the same. We want to combine the benefits of digital pianos with the benefit of traditional acoustic piano's and broaden the spectrum of possible sound characters. It will of course be beneficial for you (and us) if you have feel connection with this mission.

You are expected to be a multi-tasker, always up for showing the good example and to jump in wherever help is needed to reach the company goals. You are also expected to envision the bigger picture together with the CEO, as well as doing very basic stuff to reach those goals, by "doing most of it yourself", especially in the beginning. It is therefore required that you have experience with sales and marketing as well as administration and supply chains or at least want to get on pace with these things "on the fly". HR, finance and funding, customer support, networking, etc - in short: start-up life.

Our ideal candidate:

  • is a self starter and gets things done

  • has experience with marketing & sales, administration and finance

  • is fluent in English and Danish

  • has start-up experience

  • Is the customer we target, him of herself

  • is good at leading a team and keeping up the good spirits

  • is willing to also "get his/her hands dirty" when the company needs it

  • is ambitious and eager to learn

  • likes innovation in general and is good at thinking out of the box

You are expected to become a partner in the company, as soon as a good match becomes apparent.

You may need to pay rent etc, and together with the equity, this can be negotiated.

The most important thing is that the right candidate has the same ambition and passion regarding the value proposition of Keybird.

We ask you to send a short video, to introduce yourself and why you would like to do exactly this.

Working at
Keybird Instruments

Keybird Instruments is developing a lightweight acoustic piano to help piano enthusiasts play with their preferred sound (acoustic) with practicality and price comparable to that of digital pianos. Over 75% of piano players prefer an acoustic sound, yet most play digital because of price, size, and weight. We want to combine the best of both worlds. We can offer an acoustic piano that weighs only 43+ 16 kg, while only occupying half a square meter of valuable living space. It can be transported in normal cars. The first model has a slightly reduced amount of keys (just like many digital keyboards) having all the keys for pop and jazz but also most of the classical music for the first five years in music school. We thus have a strong focus on sound quality, rather than loudness, and we can reach the low price due to automated production in the worlds largest factory. We started this because we needed it for ourselves and saw the need for others. We asked all the piano enthusiasts we could reach and get the interest in our product confirmed. The huge market of acoustic and digital piano (we combine the benefits) is what keeps us on pace to provide an excellent alternative to digital piano's, which often get boring in the long run (We're just sharing our customer insights here ;)
