About you
We know that perfect candidates don’t exist. Even if not all of this applies to you, we’d love to learn more about you.
  • You've built something before. We love builders. Our idea of great execution is turning our customers into brand advocates.
  • You like to optimize. You look at the entire operation along the B2B2C value chain. You figure out where processes can be improved and where things could break. And fix it yourself or with our engineers.
  • You love to challenge the status quo. You understand that building a product people want involves trying things that don't scale first. You turn them into something that does.
  • You enjoy engaging the team. This means demonstrated management skills and excellent team leadership with high involvement of all team members across all functions.
  • You love learning technologies as you go. You always want to find the right tool for the job, and don't only follow what you already know.

Our process
The starting date is as soon as possible. However, we are willing to wait for the right candidate. And will do everything to accommodate your needs.
You'll walk through four stages:
1. Get to know each other: We use this to pitch Gigs and get you excited to join. We'll also use this chance to see whether both our expectations align.
2. Case study: This case study challenges how you would deal with our stakeholders. As well as how you'd operationally and strategically grow Gigs across the USA.
3. Meet the team: You'll get to meet our other team members. We value team fit above everything else. This also gives you the chance to see whether you'd enjoy working with us.
4. Final conversation: Dennis and you are going to chat more about the position, what you value, what you took away from the interviews so far, and whatever is on your mind.
We are mindful of your time: Going through all stages can be done within one week. Once you've passed them all we will extend a formal offer.
You can also speak to one of our investors. We want to give you as many insights into us as possible. We see this as a truly two-sided decision.
