Who we are looking for as our early team members? /What we are looking for in a peer? /Whom we would love to work with?

Someone who wants to be part of a startup or something big. Cliched? Let me explain, View this move in a different lens than a simple job switch. Being part of an early team of a startup is not just about adding skill or experience to your resume, it is about being part of the journey & contributing to building something big from scratch (from its early days).
It is also about moving really fast, hustling, and getting things done (Again cliched) – It is not about burning the night oil, it is about truly taking quick decisions and iterating knowing what is failing in your decision.

Addressing a few questions you might have –

What can you expect from working with this peer group?

  • Learn tech and other things – Being part of an early team gives you visibility and transparency of building a Saas product and business from scratch to scale.
  • Good conversations are always welcomed – Seasoned yet humble guys thinking big to grow a startup.
  • Learn from each other, from the ecosystem/peers & from the market.
  • Take fast decisions. Build. Trial. Learn. Repeat. – Failing is ok, but do it fast and learn with a mentor or sounding board on why and where you failed.
  • Everyone is a hustler, who gets things done at velocity.

What kind of challenges & opportunities can you expect? What you can expect to learn?

  • Build a tech stack and product from scratch to scale. Scope of work is a lot, it’s about picking up tasks and getting them done.
  • Think & plan to scale but plan to be scrappy when needed. Learn to balance tech decisions with business reasons.
  • Opportunity to learn and work on cutting-edge tech.

What can you expect from life at work? Is it really fun?

  • Health insurance for you and your loved ones
  • Fun is subjective. Perks are always good. Daily lunch, hangouts & sports outings.
  • Flexible working hours
  • Competitive pay
  • Employee Stock Options
