Technical Co-Founder, CTO (f/m/x) @ Looks

Permanent employee, Full-time · Berlin

What we do

This is a full-time, paid position + equity package

At Looks we use Mixed Reality technologies and Social Commerce to develop products that create immersive, interactive and personalized shopping experiences that make users buy better, not more. 

We have recently raised our seed round by The Merantix Venture Studio and are on a quest to find and scale our product market fit. To get there faster, we are looking for entrepreneurs with experience scaling consumer mobile applications and looking for their next challenge. 

Your role

As a co-founder you’ll be joining a small but mighty team that is already at full speed experimenting, learning, and growing together. 

  • You bring your experience building ML products and teams to add fuel to this rocketship with guidance and connections to experts, advisors, and potential new hires;

  • Build and grow world-class research & software engineering teams with ambitious goals to drive our product forward and deliver high-quality product increments at speed;

  • Strive for a quality and speed balance according to our stage and foster a mindset of experimentation and data-driven decision-making;

  • As a leader we expect you to inspire and coach each member of your team to grow as our company does;

  • You will join an existing founding team to take this company from seed to unicorn.

Your profile


We are looking for Berlin-based (or willing to relocate) entrepreneurs in search of their next rocket ship. 

  • You are an expert, with at least a MSc in Machine Learning, Computer Science, or a similar field and +5 years of experience (or equivalent) building and launching consumer applications -  ideally AR/VR products and familiarity with marketplace or social media applications.

  • You are an entrepreneur, thriving in uncertain environments, embracing the startup culture as a “doer”, aspirational and resourceful.  

  • You are a leader, with previous working experience managing tech teams as a technology lead or a key technology role in a startup or a large enterprise.

  • You get things done and deliver high-quality work on a tight schedule by taking measured risks and prioritizing tasks for yourself and the team. You are also a proponent of robust, maintainable code and clear documentation. 

  • People want to work with you: you are a servant leader, proactive communicator, good teacher/mentor/coach, able to empathize with people from different backgrounds and personality traits, and keep calm under pressure.

If you think you are right for this role but don’t meet all of the requirements, we strongly encourage you to apply anyway. Even if this isn’t a perfect fit, strong candidates will be kept in our talent pool for future hires.

What we offer

In addition to a competitive salary, you will:

  • Join a diverse, welcoming, open, and ambitious team! 

  • Become co-owner of a well-funded early-stage startup with Merantix and its ecosystem as a backer. 

  • Get the equipment of your choice, free breakfast, drinks, and a cool office in the newly opened AI Campus at the heart of Berlin. 

  • Get Visa sponsorship for those residing outside of the EU. 

  • Enjoy flexible working hours, focused on outcomes and goals, and a remote/hybrid setup.
