Become Javelin’s Chief Product Officer

Become Javelin's Chief Product Officer

At Javelin, our goal is to build the world’s greatest company. We’re known by hundreds of thousands of innovators globally for Lean Startup Machine, but soon we’ll be known by millions for our software. Javelin will be the catalyst for entrepreneurs and innovators who redefine entire industries. Just like Github fostered an explosion in open source, Javelin will foster the creation of the next Apple, Facebook, and Google. The millions of entrepreneurs we help will help many many millions more.

To be a good fit for Javelin, you need to believe that great success comes from overcoming great adversity. Personally, I’ve been through hell and back. We found Problem/Solution Fit early on with Lean Startup Machine, but getting to Solution/Product fit has taken us three years, four products, and $5M in funding and blood/sweat/tears. When everyone expected us to give up, we didn’t, instead we smashed through every wall in our way.

We’re now on the verge of Product/Market Fit and the market is right where we want it. We wrote the book on Lean Enterprise in 2014. Back then, it was too early for the enterprise. Today, it’s a different situation. Javelin is known as a thought leader and the world’s biggest companies like Microsoft and CA Technologies are banging down our door to get access. We’re at the dawn of an enterprise innovation renaissance.

Finally, we’re ready to bring on a Chief Product Officer who can take the Javelin codebase to the next level. This person will be one of the biggest leaders in Javelin and help us build a company that will change the world. Ideally this person has been through the startup experience before, as a Founder or early employee. But we’ll consider any scrappy and brilliant individuals. In addition this person should:


  • 5+ years of impressive work in web development / web programming
  • Gifted on frontend and can hold your own on backend
  • Unspoken understanding of the startup life
  • History of accomplishment or overcoming adversity
  • Be a chairman, driver, and/or completer/finisher (link to 5 min test)
  • Be a details person
  • Maintain an organized codebase
  • Great communication skills
  • Scrappy and willing to win at all costs


  • Help build one of the greatest companies of all time
  • Work hands on with the CEO and Founder
