The traits we look in you
Skills can be learnt and unlearnt any time. But the attitude you bring to the table makes all the difference and gives purpose to those skills. That’s what matters to us most.
Curiosity that’s never quenched
A curious person asks the most powerful questions in the world: “Why?” They are self learners and aren’t satisfied with what people tell them. A curious mind is keen on knowing the problem to its core. They stay awake at night wondering what they’re missing and love the process of discovery. A trait every PM need to possess.
Good IQ. And Great EQ
Great PMs know how to build relationships and not just products. They are empathetic towards everyone (including customers and team). They also know their own strength and weaknesses and leave no stone unturned to grow their own skills.
Impatient to make an impact
You are hungry to make a dent in the universe. You can't wait to solve problems and have a hustler mindset for getting things done in the best possible manner. Fail fast is your mantra for success.
Building a a simple to use HR platform is pretty complex. People failed at it for decades. Understanding its nuances, making quick correlations and coming up with new ideas and solutions requires a sharp acute mind and a penchant for seeking knowledge.
Fun to hang around
Bribe with a glass of beer and everything works. I know, I know. What about those other 60% that don’t drink? You must be an adept story teller that can connect with any personality and speak on any topic. You get it.
Extremely design centric
We don’t expect you to create beautiful visual design, but we do expect that you have experience creating simple and usable interactions. This is a trait only acquired by doing and not reading. Experience creating usable interactions is a must.
We solve people problems at work!
We are on a mission to transform workplaces where employees come to work inspired, feel safe, share a common purpose with peers and leaders, do their best work, and go home fulfilled.
