We’re looking for an Operations and Strategy Expert (or a business consultant) to join the Office of the CEO at Vacuumlabs. Your role will be to support the CEO and his Chief of Staff in both daily operations and strategic initiatives. This role requires a very flexible mindset, creative approach, openness to new challenges, and enthusiasm about problem-solving. For example, you may be tasked with bigger initiatives like developing company expansion plans to another continent or small tasks like preparing our CEO for his public speaking opportunity or conducting research of our competitors. 

You will work directly with Matej Ftacnik, CEO, and Lucia Kelnarova, Chief of Staff. Matej Ftacnik is the CEO & co-founder and an entrepreneur by choice and inclination. In addition to leading over 300 developers and other staff at Vacuumlabs, he is the founder of The Spot – one of Central Europe’s leading creative and start-up spaces. 

The role is based in Bratislava where we have an amazing HQ office with a lot of perks.
We prefer that you work physically from the office as you need to work closely with your team. 
Except for the CEO and Chief of Staff you will be in a team with a junior business analyst and personal assistant.

Our community enables you to expand your knowledge and follow your personal projects to their fullest potential. You can speak your mind and put your ideas into motion, whether it’s your strategy to improve a process or your own spin-off company.

Benefits and Perks

If you need to pick up your kids from school or head to a doctor’s appointment that’s fine with us – we let you structure your hours around your needs. The place of work, whether from home or anywhere else is an option if it suits your workflow.

You know best how much rest you need and we trust you to use your unlimited sick days with integrity.

We don’t track vacations, so you can arrange vacation and extended leaves with your department manager according to project schedules.

We want to show our commitment to constant learning. You can arrange time for continued education, training, and tech conferences.

We offer quarterly evaluations on compensation levels and provide feedback for your performance.

We’re happy to offer paid parental leave, 2 weeks off for partners with newborns, and shortened hours for new parents who wish to return to work.

From building products like the digital bank Daylight addressing underbanking in the LGBT+ community to hosting our very own pride events – we stay true to our values by taking action.

Our events and parties can enrich your social life and build team spirit with your Vacuumlabs colleagues. We host events from beer nights to breakfast, as well as extended retreats.

If you get busy and the little tasks start to add up, you can ask our concierge to recommend and schedule professionals, send or receive parcels, and even have your groceries delivered to the office.

Depending on the office location, we provide catering or outside meals.

We provide on-site mental health professionals for both crisis intervention and long term therapy. You can also purchase a MultiSport card (currently unavailable in HU).
