Does helping others achieve what they want in business sound like your dream job? Are the ideas of marketing, design and creating custom content to share with entrepreneurs around the world appealing to you? If so, StartupBros might be the right fit.
The Palm Harbor-based company, whose cheeky slogan is "You don't need a job," is hiring for several new full-time job roles in the Tampa Bay area. Most intriguing: an invitation to create your own position.
is primarily a website that offers business resources for entrepreneurs, but for cofounders Kyle Eschenroeder and Will Mitchell, the rapidly growing company is anything but a "typical" business.
For one thing, Mitchell says, "you need to thrive in chaos."
A serial entrepreneur who launched multiple companies before creating StartupBros at the age of 22, Mitchell explains that chaos "is the DNA of a rapidly growing startup. This won't be for everybody, but for certain people, this is a dream. If you're attracted by our company and the way we do things, don't hesitate to apply."
StartupBros helps aspiring entrepreneurs create successful businesses through training programs, engaging client communities, and producing live events.
The company is currently hiring for a community manager, a content marketer, front-end designer, a "growth hacker" in marketing, an affiliate marketing manager; a web developer/engineer; and a video producer.
Flexibility and a non-traditional work environment mean that while the positions are primarily in-house, telecommuting is possible for the right candidate.
And while programming, marketing and business positions are available, expect to wear many hats: “Nobody on our team is assigned a 'job' -- we work extremely hard to enable people to work on what they do best,” Mitchell says.
As for that possibility to create your own position, it's all about being what Mitchell calls an "A-player."
“A-players can't be defined by a job role, and we don't want to force them in a box," Mitchell explains. "We want people who can create their own position and effectively grow that position and their 'chunk' of StartupBros.”
Not sure if you fit the criteria, but interested in applying? StartupBros rarely relies on resumes; instead, Mitchell suggests, "let's get to know each other and see if we're a perfect fit.”
Most importantly, the right candidates for the roles “need to be an extremely passionate and hard workers," Mitchell says. "We're looking for a core team to grow this company around - the DNA of our company."
At the rapidly growing startup, things move quickly -- but there is calm within the chaos. The company culture encourages a laid-back working environment, with no dress codes, set hours or even set schedules. StartupBros currently operates from a large home-office in Palm Harbor, with plans to expand to an office location by late 2015.
Along with cofounders Eschenroeder and Mitchell, the StartupBros team includes Kayleigh Devlin, Google Glass explorer
Ashley Mooney, Steve Stalma and Laura Stromber. The team will head to destinations in China, Las Vegas and the Caribbean islands to execute various events in coming months.
