🤝Why you should join GitStart

The team is amazing

  • CEO is a national maths olympiad winner and former Microsoft Typescript team member who has already built the same technology in the Quality Assurance market

  • COO is a Sailing World Champion and IronMan who launched the first and largest coding bootcamps for inmates in Europe and spoke at TEDxHongKong

  • Our head of CS bootstrapped a crypto startup to 35k active users, a senior engineer is a Google Women TechMakers Scholar who organizes 500+ people rave parties, another has already been through the whole seed to unicorn journey,... and the team is diverse: 50% women engineering team, 9 nationalities

  • Investors and advisors include 2 CTOs of the 10 highest valuable companies, several CEOs and CTOs from the top 10 highest-valued startups worldwide, and YC, the world’s most prestigious accelerator

The business is growing exponentially

  • Growing 15% month over month for the past 6 months

  • Despite avoiding press coverage as we’re in stealth mode, we were named us top 20 companies worldwide shaping the future of remote work by AngelList, alongside Slack, Figma and Notion

  • We just closed a large undisclosed fundraising round with the best investors on the planet

It changes lives

  • GitStart helps driven but unemployable devs (wrong timezone, poor English, very junior) grow into stars who get hired at Facebook, Google and Amazon

  • GitStart’s developer community is growing virally in places like Nigeria, Brazil, Kenya, Pakistan, India, Nepal, etc with more than 2,000 monthly applicants

  • “We don’t grow devs to make money, we make money to grow devs”

🎯 Your missions

  • Break the internet by leveraging our colossal untapped marketing potential - break TechCrunch with stories of Afghan women developers working through GitStart after the Taliban took over Afghanistan, break HackerNews with stories of community developers going from tough situations to joining Google/Amazon/Meta, and much more...

  • Push our outbound conversion rates through the roof by writing killer copy and turning your ambitious and creative ideas into reality. Want to make bets in video or audio content? We love experiments!

  • We have an unlimited budget for you to work with the best marketing tools

  • Meet Silicon Valley’s best content marketers to learn best practices and build our content strategy from the ground up

🥇 You’re the right person if…

  • If you don’t fit the bill, bear in mind that all we’re really looking for is evidence of exceptional ability!

  • You write well, fast, and in idiomatic English

  • You have a technical background - this role is ideal for creative computer science graduates

  • You’re a true marketer: you recognize your words are even more powerful when combined with conversion rate optimization principles

  • You’re deeply interested in software development - bonus point if you’ve already written content for tech people and if you can code

🎁 What we offer

  1. Super flexible work culture: flexible working hours/days, >half of the team is fully remote

  2. Regular off-sites to bond and explore the world (last one: 1 month in Paris 🥐!)

  3. The Hong Kong office features gym, pool, music room, coffee machines, and a nice view on the ocean 🌊 - we can sponsor visas. The SF/NYC offices closed with Covid as we went remote but we’ll be back!

  4. Personalized growth plan & mentorship for every employee + access to the world’s most prestigious entrepreneurship community through the Y Combinator 🤝

  5. Competitive compensation and meaningful equity along with a chance to make a significant contribution to changing the lives of millions of developers - “We don’t grow devs to make money, we make money to grow devs”
