We are looking for someone with a strong background within building furniture or similar, with a strong sense for aesthetics and manufacturing and with the passion for music and the ambition to understand piano’s to the fullest.A fascination for automation and optimization of production processes should be firmly recognizable within yourself, and serve as an addition to your liking of building stuff with the tools at hand and the focus on getting stuff done, rather that staying in the theoretical dimension all the time.

We started developing a lightweight acoustic piano, hoping to offer the world a more practical stringed keyboard instrument, without compromising on acoustic sound. We now have our first model ready and landed a deal with the worlds largest piano factory. This means that we no longer need to think about how to mass produce and can instead focus on becoming really good at R&D, design and becoming a strong Brand with a strong focus on Nordic design and quality. This is where you come in and help Keybird secure product quality and innovation, which will also translate to our cooperation with the factory.Keybird has a large waiting list of customers and leads, without doing any marketing so far. If all our leads convert, we will be well over our target of 4-5 mio DKK in revenue this year. We want to see how far we can get with direct sales through our own webshop and communication channels, and meanwhile start to look into retail strategies for in a couple of years.Many things are happening, so if you like the process of starting a company and all the little side things that happen in such a process, that will be to your advantage (and ours as well). You are expected to be a multi-tasker, always up for showing the good example and to jump in wherever help is needed to reach our goals.
