If you like participating in B-plan contests, tweeting with #startup, reading techcrunch everyday, attending every other startup meetup and other general posturing, then this ain't for you.
This is the real deal. This position is for people who understand the value of paying customers. This is hard 6-days-a-week tiring, running around, full time work at a fast growing start-up where you’ll jump off the cliff with us on day one and you better be able to figure out how you are going to build your parachute (or jetplane) on the way down.
We are looking for someone who loves solving problems across domains and wants to learn the ropes at a fast growing startup and then hopefully go do his/her own startup.
What you’ll get:
The experience of a lifetime. You will be thrown into the deep end from day one. You will help share the founder's work load and by extension be doing the same quality of work. You will gain experience as a B2B salesman, data analyst, blogger, recruiter, IT support guy, hustler, public speaker and product strategist. We have grown our customer base from 0 to 50 paying customers in the past 8 months with our first product. We are looking for people who can help us get to the four digit mark and help support our future product line. You will also get to travel extensively across Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
Most importantly, you will have the satisfaction of seeing thousands of children play and learn using cutting-edge tech products you help create.
When you do leave to start your own venture, you will also get our complete backing.
Time period of employment:
18-24 months (you can stay longer if you feel like). Then you go out do your own startup (and hopefully not give CAT).
