Of course this is not your traditional business book--we don’t believe in text-heavy Harvard Business School cases. At Strategyzer we craft beautiful, simple, and captivating visual presentations and stories that open people's eyes to the potential of business model innovation. This job requires proficiency in the tools and methods described in our two global bestsellers, Business Model Generation and Value Proposition Design (2m copies in over 40 languages).

Join us, learn with us. You will be personally trained by Alex Osterwalder.
- Flexibility & Convenience: Enjoy flexible workdays & work from anywhere. We have offices in Zurich and Toronto, but 2/3 of our team is distributed. Join us to experience how globally distributed teams work in the 21st century.
- Outstanding Company Culture: Join a world-class team doing their best work ever. We have a strict "No asshole rule”, based on Bob Sutton’s management book bestseller. We only hire people who are great, yet humble and strive to do the best work of their career as part of a brilliant team.
