What's in it for you:

  • Work from home / wherever / remote. Part time is usually best to start for both of us just during ramp-up, then once we're both happy, we'll offer you full time.
  • Flexible hours generally, though we need 1 daily meeting for a few minutes via voice approx 8pm, though 90% of this work can be whenever you want
  • You'll learn how to start a company, if you ever wanted to own a company, you'll have a sense for it.

    • Sales pages: researching competitors (we'll give you clear video instructions) then writing sales pages. These are "high resolution writing" - you don't need to slam through 'em, this is your chance to do it right. If it takes 1 whole day for 1 page, it's worth it if quality is there.
    • Blog articles.
    • Social media posts - i.e. reddit, facebook, linkedin
    • Video script rough drafts
    • Ad campaigns copy, if your writing is good enough

      Interview Questions

      What has been your most challenging project you've ever done?

      How would you do it differently if you did it today?

      Let's say life goes great for the coming 5 years. Not "winning the lottery" great, but all goes well according to your goals. What does your life look like? If these plans including leaving us to start that goat yoga business or whatever your dream is, it's ok, some people work for some time and make meaningful contributions during their time with us. We hope we can help you along your path + mutually benefit in the mean time.

      What is a project or task you did recently of which you are proud?

      Why are you proud of this work?

      Rate: We don't have a set budget, of course we want as low as possible, and you want as much as possible - we need to find some balance of talent and cost. What is a fair rate per hour to start with, just for the first 90 days? $ per hour (US$).

      Longer term, we aim to pay top of market so we keep awesome people - we but need to grow a bit first. For those who grow with us, you'll have opportunities for advancement.

      Thank you for taking the time to let us get to know you a bit!

      Once this is sent, we'll send you a copy, and we'll take a few days to consider. The next step in our hiring process is to give you some real-world work, which will get increasingly complex over a series of weeks as each level is passed.

      Note we generally start people on paid test projects first, then hire on a probationary basis which then leads to permanent hires. Coders start on a fingernail, then a finger, then a hand, then an arm before proceeding to open heart surgery. When possible, we like coders to "own" a project and so whenever practical and possible once proven, we'll have you focus entirely on a product, usually new, so you will not spend a lot of time reading someone else's code, but instead writing your own.
