Software Engineer

We know what you are thinking

But we are not going to feed you a tired, copy-pasted, inaccurate job spec that is halfway outdated by the time you walk into the proverbial door (you know the specs we are talking about!), so how about this? We just give you a high-level view to give you the information you came here for, and you can apply so that we can schedule a chat to fill in any blanks or questions you may have and for both of us to make an informed decision on whether we want to make this happen!

Who we are

Led by a team of venture builders, we have a significant amount of experience in ideating, validating, building, launching, and scaling startups from the ground up. Unlike accelerators or incubators, we see ourselves as co-founders of a startup who work closely with our partners.

We specialize in working with corporates and entrepreneurs to build their businesses end-to-end, or provide standalone services in areas like research, design, development, sales, marketing, and fundraising.

Why work with us

We combine lean startup methodology with corporate assets using cutting-edge technology, design principles, and processes applied to real-world problems. By doing this we create the sweet spot for disruptive innovation. You will have endless opportunities for learning new skills in a wide range of disruptive technology, market areas, and various industries.

How we work

We encourage you and allow you to move forward with new ideas to help grow the company. Most importantly, we encourage you to be yourself and have fun. We don’t promote work/life balance in the traditional sense, rather we believe in “work/life integration.” We like having a good time at work, not just outside of it. There’s no need to hide your random quirks or awkward dance moves from us. In a way, you might be taking a “break from life” by working here!
