Description

ABOUT US
We are an early stage start-up using technology to break down monotony and build real offline human connections. Our community shares a simple belief: when people stop taking themselves too seriously and feel free to act silly around strangers, great things happen. We are building the Someonesays app to enable people to do that together. Someonesays is currently in private alpha mode at http://someonesays.co and our mobile app is in development.

ABOUT YOU
You like people and embrace random experiences. You are a great communicator. You want to learn what it takes to build a start up. You are creative, resourceful, and have an entrepreneurial spirit. You are organized, detail-oriented, and like to be helpful in any way that you can be.

THE DETAILS

- Cultivating the Someonesays community and communicating our core messages
- Managing social media accounts and writing compelling materials for the web site
- Identifying and pursuing partnership opportunities
- Building relationships with organizations and individuals in related fields
- Writing great challenges (this will be an involved and creative process)
