We require a hard working self-starter who can see a project through from start to finish.

  • Working on (and eventually leading) projects on the sales and/or marketing teams
  • Reporting on progress, performance indicators, etc, to management
  • Creating your own meaningful and high-leverage work (you will have plenty of help and support from our team, especially in the short term)

Other required personal characteristics include:

  • Trustworthiness & Honesty
  • Self-motivation
  • Better than average cognitive ability and attention to detail
  • Excellent interpersonal skills with customers and coworkers
  • Minimum of 5-years experience being a nice person

Please only apply if you have a good deal of meaningful experience with the above criteria and/or a proven track record of success.

All applicants are required to apply by submitting two documents attached to your message:

PDF 1: Resume

PDF 2: Instead of submitting a cover letter, submit a 1 page (maximum) document that answers the following questions:

  • What is your main motivation for applying for this position?
  • What are your goals for the next 3-5 years?
  • Tell us the main reason why we should choose you to become our next team member.

Here are a few final points before getting started:

  • Please include your full name and phone number on this document.
  • We respect your free time and don't want you to spend a huge amount of time on this activity. We recommend 5 mins per question, so that the entire process takes around 20 mins or less. We are looking for instinctual, honest, real answers, not the generic responses one might expect on a job application .
  • You must submit your application prior to midnight, PST, on Sunday, Sept 22nd.

Only applicants progressing to interview stages will be contacted.

Thanks very much for your interest.
