Below are the startup career opportunities in the JUAN GREAT LEAP (JGL)’s Startup Community, updated as of March 27, 2013.
If you are interested in any of these, please shoot me an email at email@example.com, along with a resume or Linkedin link.
All these jobs are STARTUP jobs, so expect the following from all of them: a) the job description is fluid: the job WILL change as the startup changes b) you will have a lot of freedom to create and leave your mark c) there is always a possibility for earning shares, d) things are pretty exciting, e) being part of the JGL Startup Network opens up all sorts of possibilities as far as career and learning are concerned. f) the job title is merely a placeholder – you can call yourself what you want (like, Ambassador of Buzz, Master Chief, Super VP, etc…),
I’ll be segregating this by company. For all the firms, one can expect an entrepreneurial culture that’s collegial, innovation-driven, customer-focused, flat, and fun!
Here. We. Go.
2013 in STORM is going to be a very special year for us.
As I mentioned in this post, STORM recently got funded in preparation for a big year wherein we will try to disrupt the market even more. We have a clear strategy in mind, and we shall do our dardnest to go for the gold.
A big part of this strategy is getting the right people to help us execute.
Here’s a list of the positions we need:
A) Marketing and Sales Trainees
We need a couple of junior executives (1-2 years experience) who can help the team execute. One thing to remember with our structure, while the “juniors” report to the “seniors,” we believe that great ideas and insight can come from ANY PERSON in the company. Expect meetings and processes where everyone is a peer and anyone can jump in to contribute.
B) Senior PHP Programmer
A big part of our strategy is leveraging technology. We need a senior PHP programmer (at least 3-4 years programming in PHP) who can lead our technical development team. We need someone who can technically strategize and help guide us through key decisions. We need someone who can lead. Most of all, we need someone who could execute.
C) PHP Programmers
We would be needing a team of junior PHP programmers with around 1-2 years of programming experience using PHP. Experience in e-commerce and payment gateways a big plus.
D) Design/UX Expert
We need someone with great design sense who can help us create beautiful, buttery sites both on web and mobile. We need someone who knows html, css, and design tools like Photoshop and Indesign. Those applying would need to bring a portfolio of previous work. Fresh grads can apply for this post.
Strata is an upcoming startup which will focus on providing Competency-based HR Consulting and Technology. We are VERY excited with the prospects of Strata. With very very minimal marketing, it ALREADY will have a client list and a very healthy revenue stream. (It has already generated around 2.5 million in revenue in 2012)
A) Marketing and Sales (1) Officer
While HR expertise here is not a requirement, we do need someone who can learn the HR universe and negotiate effectively with HR leaders. We need someone who will help build the marketing and sales structure of Strata, and work on the bottom-line. In the end, this person will hold tremendous influence over how Strata will develop and look like. We need someone who can own the startup and make it grow. Together with the CEO and the Senior HR Consultant, this person will form the core group of the Strata team. Very exciting stuff!
B) Junior HR Consultant
We need someone to help us implement our HR solutions to our target companies.Will be involved in: high level account management, project management, data-gathering, systems design, and systems administration. We need someone who won’t be afraid to discuss and negotiate with high-ranking executives. 1-2 years HR experience, preferably in OD or learning/training.
C) PHP Programmers
Strata is a tech-enabled startup, and as such, we would be needing a team of junior PHP programmers with around 1-2 years of programming experience using PHP. Experience in building large corporate systems is a big plus, more if its an HR system.
III. Juan Great Leap
Juan Great Leap is slowly transforming into many things: an online advocacy, startup lab, a startup community, even a bit of a startup school. Currently the only one “employed” fulltime by Juan Great Leap is me. I need a junior contributor who can help me develop all facets of the concept.
A. Junior Entrepreneur
I need someone who is reliable, has a lot of energy, a good writer, has supreme communication skills, is organized, entrepreneurial, and someone who is very very interested in startups. With that skill set, you probably command a high salary – and I am telling you now, this firm probably won’t be able to match what a corporation can give you. (largely because the labs are a long-term play) But I am also telling you now: if you are interested in startups, there is no other job opening that will give you as much learning as this one.
Being exposed to the deal flow (seeing and being involved in the formation of new startup concepts) alone is priceless.
IV. Mobile Academy
Mobile Academy was launched September of 2012 – a school which teaches both technical and non-technical people how to program in the mobile environment. Mobile Academy is already running its third class, is already cash positive, and is brimming with potential. It is seeking to hire its very first employee.
A. iOS Faculty (part-time or fulltime)
We need great iOS teachers who can explain the rudiments of iOS to newbies. We’re open to accepting people who know the native language (Objective C) or people who know any of the popular platforms (Cocos2d, Corona, Unity). We’re putting a premium of course, on teaching skill.
Tired of the corporate grind? Send me an email ASAP! Let’s build something!
