Builder.ai - What would you Build?
City of London
Innovation is fuelled by the power of possibilities. A few years ago, it was virtually impossible to innovate because building software needed a degree, it was simply too expensive, too complex, too risky, and ultimately too inefficient. That’s why only 16% of projects were ever done on budget and 78% failed.
We're changing that. We’re flipping software development on its head and kicking out the notion that you need to be an expert or do boot camps to learn how to make your app. Builder.ai’s platform lets you order the perfect software app for whatever problem you’re trying to solve.
Our AI powered assembly line brings together Lego-like reusable features and experts from around the world to bring world-class ideas to life – ANYONE’s world-class ideas.
Building software needs to be like ordering pizza – pick what you want, get recommendations for the features you need and simply wait till it's cooked and ready for you.
Our human-assisted AI platform helps anyone build, run & scale tailor-made software. Everyone from the bakery in Riyadh and nursery in London, to large fortune 100 companies like the BBC or Pepsi.
Life at Builder
It’s a place where everything moves at lightning pace and most definitely not for the faint hearted. We celebrate diversity, push everyone to do more with less and yet provide a culture that allows everyone to experiment, push boundaries and learn by doing. Every Builder runs to our core value system of HEARTT (Heart, Entrepreneurship, Accountability, Respect, Trust & Transparency) and we’re always looking for team players, with a point of view, a sense of humility and a let’s-get-stuff-done attitude.
Our scale up is at the intersection of a quirky startup where designers and machine learning specialists work on problems together to savvy commercial teams working with finance folks to invent new business models. #WhatWouldYouBuild
With their CEO-level view, Chiefs of Staff help CEOs prioritize work, foster key external and internal relationships, and with the right tools, improve processes and decision-making. There aren’t enough hours in the day for a CEO to review every item that crosses their desk, let alone addresses each asks. But that doesn’t stop items from rolling in. Stakeholders want meetings, department heads need decisions made, and for a startup, there are important hiring needs to consider. When startup CEOs feel pulled in a dozen different directions, the risk of burnout becomes very real. A Chief of Staff can help them avoid that. A Chief of Staff safeguards their CEO’s time. The field meeting requests and communications from department heads, C-level execs, and external stakeholders and determine what makes it to the CEO’s calendar. The goal is to sort through the noise and prioritize requests so that the CEO has the time they need to focus on projects that are important to the company’s goals.
Why we need this role While I focus on top-of-mind issues, a Chief of Staff can accomplish other items on my to-do list. They prepare important presentations, gather and analyse metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) for me to review, and might even oversee the implementation of new processes at the company. They also position me for success. It’s not often that an idea is ready to go at conception. It takes cultivating research and planning. It can also require keeping an eye on a lot of moving parts. With everything I already have on my plate, juggling new or half-formed ideas might be too much, but not for a Chief of Staff. Having an understanding of my priorities for both my role as a CEO and their vision for the company makes a Chief of Staff uniquely qualified to work on the beginning stages of an idea. If it turns out the idea doesn’t amount to anything concrete, they can put it aside. But for those ideas that have the potential to turn into something great, the Chief of Staff can invest time in research and planning and then pass on the idea to me once it’s ready. For the next stage of our stage of growth, this is a critical hire for me to allow me to be involved in a wide range of areas yet not have to attend every meeting and track every note.
Why you should join?
A Chief of Staff works as an extension of the CEO If a CEO could be in two places at once, they might try. Since they can’t, having a Chief of Staff familiar with the way they make decisions and conduct themselves just might be the next best thing. This means they get a birds eye view of an organisation being built and are in the seat next to the Founder as they build, navigate and also avoid missiles headed their way. It's a great opportunity to learn & be involved in a very diverse set of tasks from investors to a town hall to preparation of a gartner response.
