Our people wear multiple hats. We like hiring people who are dangerous in two or three areas, and very, very good (or can learn how to be) in multiple others. If you choose to be a generalist, we want to talk to you right now. As a very early part of our team, you will also have direct input into many of the decisions that will decide the future of Kicksend.

We practice data-driven product design and engineering. It’s not for everyone, you need to have enough discipline to not get attached to ideas that don’t deliver measurable results.

We optimize for your happiness - we pay very well, have stellar benefits, emphasize a sane work-life balance as much as possible and offer an equity stake. We’re based out of beautiful Mountain View, a prime startup hub in Silicon Valley.

What we also offer is a chance to see first-hand what a startup in the Bay Area is really like. If you’re of the entrepreneurial mindset, you should seriously think about joining us.
