Ambitious: Only 29% of millennials actually like work. While some go back to school, start a business, take sabbaticals or just hustle through their networks to find something new - most people just don’t know where to begin. We want to help these guys find the starting line.
A remote team: We work from different locations and across different timezones. Currently we are based in Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Cebu and Auckland working out of cafes, beaches, co-working spaces and home. We believe work is something you do and not a place you go to.
- Small: We are an early stage startup (~8 people) tackling everything in the grey space between education, recruitment and the future of work. We are backed by 500 startups and SOSV. We work scrappy so that we can move fast.
Design courses through research, research research: You will design project curriculums and course content for candidates through careful curation and structuring of the most relevant and useful topics to businesses we work with. We aren’t reinventing the wheel. You understand that we can apply the 80/20 rule and become a near-expert on any topic under the sun with the availability of free MOOCs courses and published content. You get that there isn’t a lack of quality content but a paradox of choice. Examples of topics could include: growth hacking Instagram for health brands or building partnerships for social enterprises to increase their outreach
- Endorsement from experts: Recruit industry insiders of all shapes and sizes to share their cheatsheets and templates of success to improve our resources and allow anyone to plug and play into their projects.
Stay hungry. You want to solve a human problem, build a beautiful experience and create a memorable brand. You want to participate in something that could touch and change the life of someone you know, and others all over the world.
Be self motivated. We are an early stage startup. We have some traction but a lot of the word is still ahead of us. You will be trusted with being proactive and communicative with everyone on the team.
Own your craft. You’re eager to learn what you don’t already know and will take ownership of your craft within the team.

Communicate confidently, humbly and independently with startup founders and other industry influencers from diverse backgrounds (and may be considerably more senior than you!)
