A flexible work app that connects businesses with hourly workers.
Instawork has quickly grown the essential staffing engine for local businesses and professionals, including our most recent 60M series D raise. With 4M downloads in the app store, it means that we now have the opportunity to build something even bigger.
Beyond just connecting workers with businesses to do shift work, we're quietly building a startup within Instawork. This will be a team primarily composed of former founders and early stage startup veterans which operates independently to build and ship new product lines.
We're looking for a lead designer for this new startup within Instawork - you'll work directly with the executive team and a handful of founder-grade engineers to imagine completely new experiences and build end-to-end. We'd love to share more and get to know you.
Bias for Action -- We practice high-velocity decision-making, despite encountering ambiguity frequently. Act Like an Owner -- We have a strong ownership mentality, because of this, we work smart, hard, and long. Every person on the team has the potential to have a large impact. Always Be Learning -- We learn rapidly and eagerly, from different teams within and outside the company. Respectful debate makes our organization stronger. Empathy, Trust, Candor -- Being empathetic to our users and each other helps build trust in our community and company, and fosters successful decision-making. Instawork's goal is to be the essential hiring engine for all businesses that support today’s local workforce. People increasingly expect easy access to quality work that fits into their lives, not the other way around. Instawork connects businesses with these qualified workers by creating flexible opportunities for workers to earn income, build new skills, and test out employers prior to accepting full-time positions.
