Job Type: Full time

This is not your typical 9-5 job as our communities run 24/7 as you may need to organise an event on a weekend or respond to a community members questions in the evenings. Are you up for that?

Also, you should know that working in a startup is a different world, there are no departments and things sometimes change quickly. This way of work is not for everyone and we get that – some people value routine and stability. So, think carefully about whether this job is right for you.
