Job description

OUR STORY

We're not your average startup. We started from the ground up, bootstrapping our way to millions in revenue (in an already over-saturated market) and now just within two years, we are ranked 54th out of the world's 474 fast-growing bootstrapped software companies published by Latka Magazine… It’s like the “Inc500” list but only for Bootstrapped SaaS companies….and we continue to grow fast!


LIFE AT EXPANDI

We could go on and on about how we're the most fantastic place to work, that you'll have a great time here with all your new friends. But what's really important is that this organization has ambitious goals and sets lofty aspirations for its people

We want our employees to be better than they were yesterday. We believe in investing in them so they can grow into who they are meant to be; because of this, there will always be something meaningful going on at the company--projects worth working hard for.

And even if it sounds like I'm bragging about us too much...at least, when you send someone an email from work or grab some water out of the fridge (yep - our water bottle), you know where it came from!

We think that at the end of the day, it's people who matter. And we are a company made up of people; you don't need to be from Stanford or have an MBA to rise through our ranks and make your mark. We're looking for talented individuals with ambition, drive, and dedication -no pedigree required!


OUR OFFER TO YOU

Fair pay - We try our best to be the best we can and put our people first. Therefore we try to give everyone a fair, competitive salary. Your package will be composed of a solidly fixed salary and a nice variable package. It is our philosophy to reward you for your performance, if you do well for Expandi, you should benefit and get rewarded!

Growth potential - Let us know what your interests are and what you need to grow your skills

and knowledge and we’ll take care of it. It is in our interest to make sure you keep developing yourself so we are keen to stimulate you in your career development within Expandi.

Healthy work-life balance - You have a life outside of work. That life always comes first. Too hot to focus? Head to the pool, and work in the evening.

All ideas welcome - We don’t really do hierarchy. So if you have a great idea, you’re always free to bring it to the table. And to bring it to life.

Fun-loving work-family - Let’s face it: when you join us, you’ll be spending a lot of time with us. Luckily we’re all super fun. And fun-loving.


THE POSITION WE CAN OFFER YOU

Since we are fast- growing we would like to expand our Product Management team with an experienced Product Owner.

After a solid onboarding and training process by the Product manager, learning the ins & outs of the Expandi platform, and the organization you will be ready to hit the ground running.
