At Penguin, we transform energy into human potential. We are a group of companies with three lines of business:

a) We operate Bitcoin mining data centers in Paraguay, fully powered by 100% green hydro power. This is how we make money.

b) We dedicate a significant part of profit (20%) to social impact and add value to the region by teaching Paraguayans how to code through our own Penguin Academy. This is also how we initially started in Paraguay.

c) We build electrical infrastructure (substations) to make more power usable for our data centers in the future as we want to strengthen our impact: Penguin Infrastructure.

All in all, we are around 40 people working partly remote from Europe & the US, partly on-site in Paraguay.

As Founders Associate, you will work on Penguin group level, side-by-side with our two founders Niklas and Björn. You will support them in their daily tasks in a wide variety of activities, focused on but not limited to:

  • fundraising, investor relations and related tasks
  • strategic partnerships (i.e. multi-laterals like the World Bank)
  • finance-related tasks (transactions, capital calls, etc.)
  • new strategic initiatives

Currently, we are in a large financing round for data center equipment. In the next three years, we plan to build out hundreds of megawatts of energy capacity and will finance the country’s first innovation hub including a real campus for Penguin Academy, allowing 3000 people to learn coding full-time, and international companies to settle.

Major international companies are on board for the technology park (LOIs signed, i.e. with SAP) and our current investors include renowned investors and families from Europe, LatAm, and the US.

So what are we looking for in you?

You are…

  • proactive, smart, a fast learner, hands-on, reliable, entrepreneurial-minded and impact-driven
  • fluent in English and German is a must, with both excellent written and verbal communication skills, and Spanish would be a plus
  • a great communicator, a team player, but also able to work independently
  • very proficient in PowerPoint/Google Slides and Excel/Google Sheets

…and bring

  • work experience or relevant internships in startup / venture capital / investment banking / top 3 consultancy or a leadership role in a relevant student association
  • ability to get things done fast and with excellent quality
  • first fundraising experience (be it for an own project or an initiative or company) would be a plus

This is a great and flexible opportunity for you to learn and grow at a unique, high-growth, impact-driven startup at the intersection of green energy, education, and Bitcoin.


Then get in touch via and email us a few lines on why you are the right person including any type of supporting document (could be a video, past work, CV, personal pitch deck, an interesting idea of yours, etc). 🚀
