Alan - CTO Founder Associate Internship
The position is open for immediate starting date, ideally for a six-month internship.

Founder Associates support Founders and Senior Alaners on top business priorities, such as unlocking new growth, driving alignment on strategy and building new processes/standards internally and externally. 

You will be highly involved in key challenges for Alan, and will be asked to support high added value tasks for Alan. 

Detailed missions

- Created new processes and resources, and contributed innovative ideas to improve Founders Associates team efficiency and autonomy.
- Contributed directly/acted as project coordinator to/for at least one strategic company project (new product launch, AI model implementation, etc.).

Profile & competencies
- Analytical sense and critical thinking: FAs have a lot of research and analysis to produce. This requires the ability to frame the right questions, objectively analyze and evaluate a problem or issue, and problem-solve including simulating possible outcomes. 
- ‘Business’ and product sense: FAs often have to think at the company level, assessing what would be best for the business, and working on topics that have cross-cutting impacts. The ability to understand what can make a business great (product wise, commercially, in terms of image, etc.), and usually make correct decisions, even in the presence of ambiguity, is paramount.
- Execution and collaboration: given the scope, volume and timeline of work, the ability to direct people—including oneself—towards a particular objective that may require active orchestration is key.
- Versatility and education: given the scope of work, FAs should be able to jump from one topic to another with similar impact
- Organization, time management and autonomy: you are well-versed in missions requiring precision and reliability. You are able to manage a project from start to finish with minimal external assistance. 
- Communicate effectively: given the number of Alaners that FAs interact with on a daily basis, the ability to communicate your specific needs and to inspire action in others is essential. 
- Always looking for the extra-mile: as a FA, you will be expected to be able to deliver quickly and well on the tasks assigned to you, but also to be proactive in proposing new initiatives, going beyond the task assigned to you if you think it is necessary, as well as anticipating future needs to propose potential solutions
- Growth mindset: you know how to ask for and receive feedback in order to grow as an FA in your early professional life. 
- Fluency in spoken and written English. All our communications are written and in English.
