About Waagado

We are a young and innovative tech startup located in Bonn, Germany with close ties to a leading German IT- and management consulting firm. Our company’s mission is to bring point-of-sale cash systems into the 21st century. We are an enthusiastic and determined small team. We are keen to incorporate novel perspectives and bring bright minds on board to enrich our team.

Waagado seeks to help retailers across Germany to comply with new EU regulations regarding the handling and storage of transaction data. We offer a cloud-based and app-supported one-stop-solution fully complying with all new legal obligations. We bring cash systems to the 21st century–with state-of-the-art software, a modern touch UI, multi user capability, automatic synchronization and much more. Waagado has now been in development for several years, obtained necessary official certifications and is soon ready to be launched onto the market.


Job Description

Are you excited about retail as well as digital payment and cash systems? Are you enthusiastic about the opportunity to mold, steer, and grow an ambitious young tech venture? Are you ready to orchestrate a large-scale product launch? Then keep reading!

We are looking for a full-time Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who can lead Waagado and its team of currently two full-time employees and four part-time employees in its early growth stages. She or he is able and committed to do the groundwork for future growth together with the initial members of the Waagado team. The ideal candidate has a business background and passion for retail and digital payment and cash systems. She or he has a self-confident manner, well-honed negotiation skills and has first-hand experience in leading larger teams.

We are supported by a major German IT- and management consulting firm and are already in talks with key distribution partners. It will be one of the CEO’s core tasks to manage and deepen such vital partnerships.


Given Waagado's advanced state of development, it will further be one of the CEO's key tasks to orchestrate the product's successful launch onto the market. The CEO will lead the Waagado team in completing product development and testing. A successful launch will require the CEO to ramp up a sales organization and the corresponding transport and infrastructure including customer support. Given Waagado's business potential and large-scale expansion plans, the incoming CEO will be responsible for growing the team (hiring, developing and managing employees). Depending on Waagado's capital needs, the CEO will also steer the firm through potential funding rounds.



We offer a competitive compensation package consisting of a gross salary of 50-60k EUR and a substantial stake in the firm.
