About the role

we’re the place to give your idea a shot. any ideas.

we’re looking for someone to lead the largest accelerator in the world — nights & weekends.

it's six-weeks where you could start any idea from zero on your nights and weekends, and by the end you would have your first fans, revenue, downloads, whatever. and we truly didn’t care what you were working on — it could have been a breakthrough ai product, a niche tiktok account, whatever.

it kinda feels like a live tv show.

to date, we’ve had 30,000 people go through it.

we give people weekly live lectures, funny skits, anime music videos — all sorts of stuff to push them to create + make progress each week and feel together.

at the end, we run irl events in different parts of the world, for 3-days, for the people that make it through.

see how last season went here.

this is a pretty large production and are looking for someone to run end to end.

things you’d be doing as a program lead:

  • leading the charge to find all the people that want to come work on their ideas
  • organizing lectures on a weekly basis
  • setting up a weekly comms with all participants in nights & weekends
  • putting together 3-day, irl events
  • setting up a help system for participants going through nights & weekends
  • keeping track of people who are really going above and behind during nights & weekends

About buildspace

we’re the largest place where you give your idea a shot.

and, we mean any idea — a hip-hop album, short film, a novel, some indie software, a youtube channel — whatever.

no idea is too big or too small.

it all starts with nights & weekends.

it's six-weeks where you can start any idea from zero on your nights and weekends, and by the end you'll have your first fans, revenue, downloads, whatever.

in 2023:

  • 12M+ ppl saw our content across Instagram and Twitter.
  • more than 30,000 people joined nights & weekends to work on their own ideas.
  • 1,000 people flew to meet us and others like them for 3-days.

and, we had 1,000 people come out to one of our physical, 3-day events.

to get a sense of what this all looks like in practice, see our video for season four here.

we even built a physical campus for people who want to go full-time on their idea and need place to figure it out -- again, we don't care how big or small the idea is.

overall, it's been a journey.

so, now what?

in 2023, we built up massive distribution. it was all about creating really high-quality content + experiences. but, it was all very one-off.

in 2024, we're fully focused on taking all our learnings and building a world class product. a product that can help millions pursue their passions and build their ideas.

and, we're looking for talented engineers and designers to help us figure it out.
