🔴 About Passionfroot
Passionfroot’s mission is to empower the independent businesses of tomorrow.

Right now, the life as a creator is exhausting. They need to create and edit content, build their brand, engage with their community, find sponsors, track their finances…all without adequate tools to support them.

We are here to build Passionfroot, a tool that will empower creators to build scalable, sustainable businesses. Our goal is to unlock the full potential of the creator economy, by making it easier for creators to succeed.

Our team envisions a future in which everyone can make a living by sharing their truest authentic self.

Passionfroot is here to pave the way for the rise of the creator economy which we believe will cause the largest shift of empowerment and wealth in this generation. It will uplift individuality over institutions, enable people to work on their own terms, and lead to a more equitable future

❤️‍🔥 Passionfroot’s values
These values are core to our culture. They are the foundational framing we use when making decsions, working together on a daily basis and assessing potential candidates, like you, to join our team.

🐥 Dare to growWe believe that life-long learning is truly empowering. Hence, we encourage our team to take ownership and we ensure that everyone can give and receive candid feedback. It’s okay to try and make mistakes as long as we learn from them.

❤️‍🔥 Embrace passionWe believe everyone has a passion and following that passion unlocks your inner drive. That drive is what will move mountains – and we want to move mountains with you.

🎁 Serve the communityWe believe that communities are magical and help individuals to find a place where they feel like they belong. We want to serve those who can create communities by building diverse and inclusive communities ourselves.

👨🏿‍🚀 Be a creatorWe believe creators are go-getters and problem solvers who challenge the status quo and find solutions with limited resources at their hand. To truly serve creators, we need to be creators ourselves.

🚀 About the role and your impact

  • You’ll be working at the intersection of the creator studio, operations, design and engineering in order to help us define what to build – and when to build it.

  • You will work closely with the founders conducting user research, analysing user data to aid product strategy, and build a world-class product machinery.
  • You’ll build a compelling product roadmap based on customer needs, resources, and strategic opportunities.

  • You will act as the product owner, maintaining the responsibility and accountability for shipping new features and facilitating the product rituals
  • You will shape the product strategy, lead the product team to make fast decisions to help us reach product market fit, and ultimately help us scale to thousands of creators who love our product

  • We won’t stop until we get it right. The only thing we know with certainty is that we don’t know everything with certainty. We are on a journey to find answers, together. We encourage you to fail and get up to try again, so we reach our goals faster, together.
  • We learn together. We are all learning everyday. We will make mistakes, but admit them and learn from them.
