CEO in remote fast-growing DTC startup
Do you want to run a business empire some day?
I'm putting up the bat signal 🦇
We want to give a person with business and operation savvy a chance to learn how to scale an e-commerce business from €3M to €50M/year.
We've built volant from 0 to a €3M per year essential oil DTC brand in 1.5 years. We're two Norwegian entrepreneurs who have previously worked within consulting and done a SaaS startup.
That's what we're good at. Building from nothing to something.
Now we're looking to teach a person everything we know about operating and scaling volant and onboard that person as a CEO in the next 6 months.
From there on we want you to take it to the next level.
- To instantly swim in the deep end of the pool and get 4 years of experience packed into 6 months
- Scaleup experience in the drivers seat or riding shotgun (explained later in the post) without risk
- Potential stake in a company with massive upside (if we decide to take you on as a CEO)
- All your time and energy in service of making volant a worldwide brand that delights customers and rakes in profits
Who are you?
You might be feeling lost in a corporation that doesn't see your potential. Maybe you're stuck at a company going nowhere. Or you're tired of boring consulting gigs and want something more challenging. You might even be a high achiever just wrapping up your studies and are looking for a flying start.
You have the ambition to become a world-class leader. You're creative, ambitious, entrepreneurial, but at the same time, more focused on structure, order, routines and people.
You've might have been involved with side projects, student organisations and have need to do everything in your life with the utmost excellence.
You get energy from organising, driving projects forward and see ideas, goals and dreams come to reality through hard work.
You're confident, but humble and always learning, listening and developing yourself and the people around you.
You find genuine joy in helping others succeed, almost more than when you succeed on your own.
You're frugal and leave no stone unturned to optimize your things, but you also know when to invest to create value.
Last word to why this is a great opportunity...
In any project you can be:
- The Driver
- Riding Shotgun
- Backseat passenger
- Or in the trunk (left in the dark, just along for the ride)
While most people starting out at large companies or even startups are left in the trunk or as a backseat passenger, we'll bring you up close to the action from day one, and then let you drive!
In the first six months, you'll spend 70% of your time riding shotgun, learning from how we operate the business. 30% of the time you'll be driving and getting real responsibility in delivering results for the company.
This equals 10X learning speed.
If we succeed together you'll be given the reins to run the company within 6 months and we'll be touching base only on monthly strategy sessions.

Volant was founded in Norway by Tobias Nervik and Daniel Hoftun. They shared a flat in Oslo and wanted to buy an aroma diffuser to start using essential oils after Tobias heard about it on the Tim Ferriss show. Daniel had just refurbished the apartment and wanted a nice-looking diffuser that fit well with the interior decor. They were unable to find one.
That is why they created volant: to offer a minimalistic essential oil diffuser that goes with any interior. The volant diffuser was an instant hit in Norway and launched in 15 countries within the first year.
The volant diffuser is Scandinavian in design and craftsmanship and is the flagship product of volant. It infuses our customers' spaces with fresh aromas and helps them feel relaxed, energetic or focused depending on their needs.
