JOB OPPORTUNITY: February 21 2017
SYSTEMS ARCHITECT/TECHNICAL DESIGNER/CREATIVE ENGINEER (honestly this is a 'working title').
Organic food is an $80Bill industry. Consumers pay more/buy organic food because it’s A) ‘Healthier’ B) better branded and C) has a certified supply chain.
Twoodie is the first brand for organic non-consumables: for the hardgoods that surround us in every home, school and office. Those that are natural and biodegradable, non toxic, non polluting and with no threat of endocrine disruption. We make products out of ‘organic wood’ and have started with an ‘ALL-IN-ONE’ baby toy solution because of justified consumer concern around sensitive infants.
Rather than pay for third party certifications we have made Twoodie completely open - hypertransparent, so that everything is accessible and communicable to the world via the web. Our approach is to use technology to open ourselves up to scrutiny and let consumers decide. By selling exclusively online and being vertically integrated we capture all the value and can ‘afford’ to do this honestly. We design and control the global supply chain end-to-end so we can (in theory) take full responsibility for it. Being an ‘open book’ is a strategy that proves to consumers we deserve their trust (and that we are obsessed with making the best products). It’s also our personal philosophy.
Transparency at Twoodie currently just looks like a very candid data dump.
It’s all there: good/bad/ugly and lots of “work in progress”. That’s iteration 1.
WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
A disciplined individual who will be able to teach themselves whatever they need to know, even if they’re not confident.
Someone to design Twoodie’s web/technology infrastructure in order to creatively, transparently and “inappropriately” touch our clients and the market. To use the tools of new technology to explain and communicate ‘stylistically’ what we are about.
No one has ever done this for a consumer brand before. We have some ideas but it will be largely about discovery and exploration, trial & error… and possibly public failure.
Ideally you speak at least one other language (we do) and are not nationalistic.
We need someone who’s not precious about only doing “intellectually stimulating” work because there is inevitably a reasonable amount of shit stuff to do in a startup.
Lastly: someone that has A HACKER MENTALITY AND THE TECHNICAL PROGRAMMING SKILLS TO BE ABLE TO SERVICE IT.
