Ambitious: Only 29% of millennials actually like work. So some go back to school, start a business, take sabbaticals or just hustle through their networks to find something new - most people 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 the product: You will be creating new flows, screens and features while solving problems for a number of user types. You will be working closely with customer acquisition and engineering to validate assumptions early and reshape things as you learn.
Design the brand: We have a big message, but our brand is yet to be articulated. You’ll be expected to develop it further, making it as true to our values as possible and evolve it parallel to the product.
- Creative direction: Our marketing also needs design. Some of what we are doing is seriously new, and requires a very fine-tuned visual and verbal voice. A significant amount of work may go into digital collateral for early adopters across multiple channels.
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.
