Your Mission

Your Mission Is Remove The Bottleneck On Growth, Aka To Get So Many People To Try The Product Or Book Demos That Together As a Team, We Can Grow Tens Of Thousands Of Aspiring Engineers Across The Globe, Gather Millions Of Diffs To Train AI Models, And Build a Meaningful Success Story. Concretely, You Will

  • Craft experiments that convert across multiple channels (we started finding traction with emailing, tech newsletters, and want to test new channels) - define targeting, write copy when applicable, and scale the winners
  • Analyze data to understand what’s working and what’s not - from writing SQL (we log absolutely everything imaginable) to reading through customer interactions
  • Build a team to accelerate and complement yourself

On top of the classic stuff, we’d love to have fun launching creative experiments inspired by delivering champagne, AirPods Max, and industrializing writing letters!

Who we are searching for

We love people who can ship an experiment end to end, learn from it, and scope next experiments, which requires:

  • Years of experience across multiple channels (ads, emailing, sponsorships, etc). 2y minimum (including years as a GTM focused founder)
  • Great engineering culture
  • Good enough grasp of the devtool ecosystem to be able to generate & execute non standard experiments ideas. For example, can turn “we want to try contributing to open-source” into “We can find lots of OSS repos on the Linux foundation website, and select some based on things like whether they have labels for new contributors and no stale PR. Also most projects have a Discord, we could get in touch with the team there”
  • Good enough grasp of software engineering to be able to ask smart questions when interviewing the CTO of a 150 people eng team for a case study
  • Good copywriting skills (note we’re planning on hiring a technical content writer)
  • Good design taste
  • Ability to do things end to end: able to quickly repurpose Figma designs and get contractors to clean them up, to set up simple things like a landing page or more complex ones like programmatic SEO (with some help), etc

Perks and Benefits

Non-standard stuff

  • ⚖️ 10 years options exercise windows — most startups employees never exercise their hard-earned equity options because the standard clause forces them to buy it within 3 months of departure. We care so much about equity that on top of giving offers way above market, we switched to a new legal documents software solely because the old one didn’t support changing the default “3 months” to “10 years”.
  • 🛂 Visa Sponsorship: Dream of living somewhere new? We'll help sponsor your application and help with the visa.
  • 👋 "We Got Your Back" Budget: Life's little necessities shouldn't be a hassle. Need daycare, new glasses, or a taxi ride? Consider it covered.
  • 🌱 Growing You Budget: Your personal and professional growth is our priority. Are you continuing your studies, studying something new or want to learn a new skill. We will help!
  • 🌎 We are a fully remote company — We hire the best people in the world without restriction. Work wherever and in whichever timezone you want, and travel around the world to meet the team during quarterly onsites.

Standard stuff

  • 📈 Equity for everyone who’s full-time
  • 🌏 Onsites
  • 🏝 Unlimited Paid Time Off
  • 🐣 Parental leave
  • 🖥️ WFH Budget
  • 🍽 Meals with fellow GitStarters
  • 📞 Something missing? Tell us

Finally, we offer competitive compensation and meaningful equity along with a chance to make a significant contribution to changing the lives of millions of engineers across the world.

Hackweek Based recruiting

We are weird about hiring. We’re skeptical of resumes and we don’t trust interviews (we’re happy to talk though!). Since nothing beats working together, we love inviting people for a hackweek (or hackweekend) - come hack on a problem with us and see if you like it!

It’s compensated, of course. And fast: we typically extend offers within 3 working days, starting from the end of the hackweek.

Not sure whether this is for you? Read this candidate's feedback!

See, I've been in the industry for quite a long time. And I had lots of interviews and interviewers throughout my career. Some were good, while some sucked big time; as usual. HOWEVER, and I'm not even exaggerating when I say this - interview experience with GitStart was not even ONE OF the best, but absolutely THE BEST I ever had in my 15 years career. Every person that I spoke to in the process was EXTREMELY charismatic, really eager to learn about myself and, what's more, it was absolutely obvious that they LOVED GitStart. I have NEVER EVER EVER seen anything even remotely like this. So how was the process? Amazing! I actually enjoyed it and was looking forward to more of it :D
