The role and a bit about us

We are a team of hungry entrepreneurs, engineers and creatives, driven by the opportunity to have a real-world impact. At EoT Labs, we’re transforming the corporate-controlled Internet of Things into a people-powered Economy of Things, positively shaping our collective future in the process. Check out our vision deck to learn more about our ‘why’.

We are seeking a passionate and driven Entrepreneur-in-residence with a DOer mindset for one of our portfolio projects, penomo, who will lead its tech development.

penomo .io has a big vision - to enable low-cost financing and maximize shared earning to accelerate the shift to a community-owned circular energy economy. We begin by empowering circular EV battery businesses to sustainably thrive by harnessing the power of web3 and regenerative finance, helping them to fully monetize the value they generate. We have secured a €240k research grant in collaboration with renowned German institutes like Fraunhofer HHI. Extensive initial customer research and validation is complete with some of the biggest industry names excited for our launch.

  • Build the early working prototypes and eventually construct a fully scalable product. Alongside - build, manage and lead a high-caliber developer team.
  • Actively lead customer discovery calls to identify pain points firsthand and prioritize capabilities that should be built into the platform.
  • Serve as penomo’s technical front to liaise with advisors, investors and other stakeholders.
  • Monitor reliability and performance of all internal systems, ensuring compliance with security regulations.
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the web3 industry, identify new innovation opportunities and apply relevant knowledge in the product’s strategy.


What you bring to the table

  • Being hands-on with an aptitude to build-test-learn-deploy fast, especially at the early MVP stage.
  • Deep production experience in tech for a full-stack blockchain application (e.g. React + Node + Rust for smart contracts), ideally with a good understanding the Polkadot ecosystem.
  • Strong fundamental understanding of smart contract and DeFi ecosystems, their potential and limits.
  • Familiarity with cloud computing platforms such as AWS or Azure.
  • Good with integrations, having understanding of different APIs to connect software systems robustly.
  • Strong leadership, management, and communication skills, with an ability to inspire and motivate a team towards a common goal, especially when things get tough.
  • Ability to harmonize your hunger to learn more, push boundaries and delivering results.
  • Passion and drive to create an impactful dent in the market, challenging conventions.

Preferred to have

  • Previous experience as a technical co-founder, or senior technology leader in a startup, spin-off venture or similar.
  • Previous experience in DeFi / carbon finance markets is a huge plus.
  • Timezone of CET (+/- 1 hour) is a plus. Ideally open to collaborate in person for some period during the first few months.


What you can expect

  • Growth: This role will evolve into you being a co-founder & CTO of the penomo .io startup project at EoT Labs.
  • Impact: You will address one of the biggest challenges of our time, decarbonizing mobility and energy, impacting the lives of billions of people.
  • Ownership: As a co-founder, a substantial portion of shares in the startup where you are responsible for leading people to build the product.
  • Access: Opportunity to work alongside some of the best minds and personalities in web3 and mobility.
  • Day-to-day: Full responsibility to design your own workstream and control your working hours with a very high degree of freedom.
  • Culture: A warm and open culture at an international organization with team members coming from all four corners of the globe.

What guides us

  • We believe that great teams are made of missionaries, not mercenaries.
  • We believe that great teams can only deliver great results consistently if they work under conditions that give them creative freedom and a manageable workload, creating full focus on what's important.
  • We want to work with humans, not with robots (yet).
  • We find strength in diversity and authenticity.
  • We give you the freedom you need to be great at what you do.
  • We aim to create a space where people can do what they love and live up to their potential.

We highlight that if you are aiming for a work-life balance for the next 12-18 months, then this role may likely not be right for you. But if you seek a devoted yet fun-filled adventurous journey, then our energies likely match! If this excites you to explore further to build such a project from the ground up, then we really look forward to hearing from you!
