If you’re interested, apply by sending us your CV and Cover Letter. But we don’t want to read the standard cover letter you send everyone else – we know you hate it anyway and we can assure you they don’t read it. Instead, there’s only three things we care about: 1) Why You? 2) Why Now? 3) What’s the three-digit number corresponding to the number of words this ad has? We get a lot of applicants and can’t interview them all, so this is your chance to persuade us you will contribute most to our success (and that you have actually read our ad).

As a startup, we have limited resources, so only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Thanks!
