If "building pianos in a modern way" sounds interesting to you and you have experience with building with wood and semi automated processes along with a solid background with CAD, this might be the job for you. We are looking for someone with a strong passion for quality and efficiency to manage the production of our lightweight acoustic piano as well as helping us shape the production in a way that "Made in Denmark" continues to represent high quality and also astonishes by affordability.

Keybird Instruments IVS is a start-up developing a lightweight acoustic piano, with circa 5 people involved in our developments at the moment. We are based in Hall of the Odd, just next to Kløvermaren on Amager, Copenhagen. We are opening our webshop in September 2020 and want to see how far we can get with direct sales through our own webshop and communication channels. 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. Our values are built upon transparency and striving for sustainability and reduction of complexity through innovation.

We started developing a lightweight acoustic piano, hoping to offer the world a more practical keyboard instrument, without compromising on acoustic sound. Our mission is to bring diversity and accessibility to the world of acoustic pianos, since acoustic pianos as we know them today are very hard to transport and have been streamlined to sound more or less the same. We want to broaden the spectrum of possible sound characters as we develop more models. Having electronic add-on features to our piano will help us broaden the possibilities in a useful way for many piano enthusiasts. It will of course be beneficial for you (and us) if you have some sort of a connection with this mission, along with some experience and affinity with piano's.

The design of our first model is inplace, so now we will focus on developing the production and optimising processes. You can play a big role in helping us reach the goal of offering the product for an affordable price while keeping the quality as good as possible and being able to say "Made in Denmark".

Our production philosophy is built on a simple principle: using as much sheet material as possible which can be cut by CNC or laser. This means that experience with CAD and CAM will be of great help to you, both when building the product and for designing production aids. A fascination for automation and optimization of production processes should be firmly recognisable within yourself. Doing the actual building work like operating the machines and doing assembly work will be a part of your daily routine, with the possibility to grow towards more responsibility and management areas.

The current work location (Hall of The Odd, next to Kløvermarken, north Amager) is part of a larger start-up community with everything from metal and wood workshops to electronics, visuals and event management. Depending on the success of the coming months, larger production facilities can be looked for.

Our ideal candidate:


  • is a self starter

  • has professional experience with CAD and CAM

  • has experience with working with wood at high precision manufacturing

  • has affinity with music and pianos in particular

  • is not afraid to get hands dirty

  • has a strong tendency to create order rather than chaos

  • takes honor in fast and qualitative work

  • takes responsibility to get things done within an agreed time frame

  • likes innovation in general and is good at thinking out of the box

  • is fluent in English

  • is flexible and eager to learn


Since we are a startup company and due to crisis times, candidates willing to start working for shares rather than wages will be preferred. There is good potential to become a driving force within the company and that ambition should be present. Creating efficiency and structure out of chaos and showing the good example of reaching goals within agreed time frames, along with supplementing with extra time to reach those goals, should be a part of your work ethics, while still enjoying it and spreading a positive attitude of seeing solutions rather than problems.
