  • You’re a high performer who sees stuff that needs to get done and gets it done
  • You can figure things out given some high level direction
  • You have exceptional attention to detail
  • You've worked at a startup in an operations or product role OR you spent time at a consulting firm/big tech company early in your career and are looking to have a big impact on a small team
  • You care deeply about the user. You want to blow their mind
  • Excel doesn't scare you; SQL might, but that's ok
  • You move fast and work hard.
  • You prefer to have your hands in a bunch of different projects from week to week or even day to day
  • You plan to start your own company someday
  • You’re comfortable working in a problem space with a lot of uncharted territory.

What You’ll Do

  • Help to establish strategy and goals for Operations, Support and Marketing
  • Solve whatever this week's problem is most important to the company that isn't Product/Engineering/Design related

  • Devise and Run various experiments
  • As Here grows, your role will grow. We expect the early team to be exceptional, and to grow as exceptional leaders

Our team is small--you’ll be one of our first few hires--which means you’ll have a lot of responsibility from the start.  Here is an entirely new approach to video and personalization.  At our most basic level, we’re building the way people want to be together online with one another--we’re making the OS for hanging out.  We run lots of experiments, we take risks, we ship some really weird stuff.

Why you should join Here

Here is where friends and communities hang out together online in customized and personalized rooms.  Our mission is to create a sense of closeness even if you’re worlds away.  People build personalized rooms where they meet to decorate, video chat, message, draw, play mini games, watch videos, and move around--all available in a web browser.  Here is expressive, creative and fun.

Our team has deep expertise building social, consumer, collaboration and messaging products at companies like Facebook, Groupon and Instagram.  We founded and sold multiple venture-backed startups, and we're backed by world class investors.  User response to Here amazes us every day, which is why we’re looking to add extraordinary folks to our team.
