About Green Fox Academy Green Fox Academy is a Central European coding bootcamp, operating in Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with plans to expand further in CEE and into Western Europe. The Academy targets people who would like to change to a career in IT. Our goal is to build a European tech school of the future that provides relevant education to students, delivers tangible employment outcomes for our graduates and provides skilled and valuable employees to our corporate partners and the general labor market. Green Fox Academy’s unique angle is its B2B business - serving as a placement partner for companies within the region and more importantly delivering corporate bootcamps focused on reskilling existing employees and reskilling new hires. We see the B2B business as a critical part of the future growth of the Academy.
The company has been growing rapidly at 30% a year the last 4 years. What started out as a small school in Budapest is now a major education and recruitment player across three different markets in Central Europe. The company now reached a scale and complexity that requires a professional manager to step in and continue the growth of the company. This is a regional role and the candidate needs to understand the complexities involved in running a company across multiple European countries.
The CEO will bear overall responsibility for running the company and will report directly to the investor. The main responsibilities of the CEO will be to continue and accelerate the growth of the company with increasing focus on the B2B side of the business, to optimize the entire company across processes, people and costs, with heavy focus on automation. The CEO is expected to take ownership of the business plan and relentlessly execute on it, ensuring to reach the KPIs.
Green Fox Academy is also a people-heavy business and as such the CEO needs to be well versed in working with people and have a high level of empathy and emotional resilience.
Due to the nature of the role, the candidate must have experience from a “digital” industry and be familiar with software development and related topics. The company's operations are spread across Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, key hubs being: Budapest, Prague and Bratislava. Traveling between the offices is expected on a regular basis, twice per month. The company operates in a hybrid work environment where remote work is considered the default.
This position is full-time and based at Green Fox Academy in Budapest, Hungary OR in Prague, Czech Republic.
The ideal candidate will be a process driven person capable of optimizing every aspect of the company. This role is very execution heavy, which is why we are looking for an experienced operator with a well honed commercial mindset who is not afraid of rolling up their sleeves. The candidate will understand the recruitment and learning & development business and will be able to quickly grasp the main concepts in software development. The ideal candidate will be entrepreneurial, agile and adaptable, with a very disciplined approach to implementing and optimizing processes, as well as experienced in change management.
While we are looking for an experienced manager, this role will suit someone ready to take on the next step in their career, step into a CEO role and take on the responsibility for running an entire company and delivering value to shareholders.
