As a social startup, we care about people, we are all driven by a positive social impact. We are also a very dynamic environment, where things can change quite fast, making it a great place to grow and learn. Finally, we are searching for someone that has a very keen sense of accomplishment, that feel the need to see the work done.
• Having impact
If what makes you move are things such as stability, prestige and short-term career progression, there are great opportunities in the market, but we cannot promise you that.
From a Product Designer we expect...
… a high level of openness to experience:
… a moderate level of extraversion:
… a strong consciousness in order to keep a good development flow:
• Achievement oriented
.. some agreeableness in order to deal with a dynamic startup pace:
Someone deeply connected with the artistic world, where you can explore and challenge ideas in order to create something new.
Someone that can balance the artistic side with a realistic approach, since a startup needs to test and learn
Might seem controversial, but for this role some good dose of interest in conventions would also be appreciated to keep a good flow with our tech team.
