A faster and more collaborative alternative to Jira for remote teams
Kitemaker is a startup building a collaboration tool that replaces traditional issue trackers and project management tools. We're passionate about helping all teams get healthier product development processes, be happier, and build better products. Our dream is to create the most well-designed product development tool in the market.
This is a unique opportunity to join a funded early-stage startup and have a massive impact on our product, culture, and direction. It's a lot of work and a roller coaster ride. But, if you are up for it, you can join us in replacing the most hated software development tools, build a tool that actually improves how teams work, and have a significant impact on our customers.
We're supported by some of the world's leading investors, including Y Combinator, EQT Ventures, SNÖ, and a good bunch of amazing angels.
About the job:
What can make you a great candidate:
What we look for in people:
Diversity is essential for us, and we strive to create a culture where everyone can feel at home regardless of who you are and your background.
We try to be quick about the hiring process. A typical process for interesting candidates is:
Interview with CEO and founder This is mainly for us to explain the role and company to the candidate, and for us to get an impression of the candidate and her/his skills.
Interview with CTO and founder As we work very closely together in the product team, this will dive a bit more into how the candidate would fit into the team, and how the candidate work with other product team candidates.
Interview with a designer in our network This is generally an interview focused on the skills of the candidate. There will not be any preparations for the interview, but the candidate should expect to do some design work during the interfere.
Work with us for a week on a contract (if taking a week to work is not possible we find an option that works for you) This is the final part of the process, and we do this with all hires. The candidate will work with us a full cycle (one week) from planning to retro. This will give the candidate a way to get to meet and work with the team, as well for us to get to know the candidate in a work environment. The candidate will be paid salary for the week.
Kitemaker builds a faster and more collaborative Jira alternative. We build the natural place to where design, engineering, and product managers collaborate.
It's super fast, has a lot of hot keys, and we put an emphasis on a clean and well designed user interface.
