Energy. Ideas. Passion

Working at a startup is not a normal 9-6 job job, it is a lifestyle  have to WANT

The Programme

What you'll do

01

Developing ideas

Every startup begins with an idea and the FlexAcademy Programme is no different

02

Startup sprints

There are different names and approaches, but every start up essentially works on the same principle. Break up big projects into small pieces, identify how to deliver it, and then execute

03

MVP time

Every idea gets turned into a proof of concept, at which point it then moves to be a Minimum Viable Product. Something that a client or customer will pay money for

04

Route to market

Every startup needs to generate revenue and prove there is a market for their product and services

05

Product iteration

An MVP is not a competitive product in most markets, just something that shows potential which must then be developed and iterated, drawing on the experiences of early adopters to build out features and make it a more competitive offer on the market

06

Growth

Perhaps the hardest part of every start up journey is growth - finding new people that share the companies values and can contribute in a meaningful way to the work that has already been done

The basics

How much do I get in WAGES

You will be paid the National Minimum Wage, or National Living wage depending on your age. This means you get paid between £700 and ££945 after taxes.

How many HOURS PER WEEK

You will be expected to work at least 25 hours per week, which can be arranged around your other commitments and with your team. If you get the work done we don't midn when!

Where is the LOCATION

We are a remote and global team, working in living rooms everywhere from London, to America and New Zealand. There are office locations in London we may rent out for you if it is safe to do so and when necessary - but it is all dependant on circumstances.

What do I need APPLY

Attitude. Energy. Ideas.. That is really about it, we don't care what qualifications you have or don't have, what grades you got at school or where you have worked before. Most of all we want people that are just raring to go like a racecar on the starting line!

When is the DEADLINE

There is no fixed deadline and we will be accepting new 'Teams' of 5-6 people on a rolling basis over the next 6 months depending on the suitability of applicants and capacity. In other words, get in soon or you might miss out!!
