What we offer, who we are
NOT THE MAINSTREAM is providing coaching/tutorial apps for different badass sports aside the mainstream. We want to give people the chance to dive deeper into their hobby, the thing they already love. Our sports are identity-giving, people who are practicing them usually make them play a big role in their lives. We are taking pride in this special feature, want to celebrate our users and enable them to flexibly strengthen their skills as amazing athletes.
NOT THE MAINSTREAM is a newborn company that grew out of a hobby project with which we initially just wanted to do something for the community, the sport we loved. We experienced a huge demand that we couldn’t answer with just a side project, which is why we decided to create something bigger. We (of course) firmly believe that this is just the beginning, as not only we but outside experts (people who should know) see the potential of our business: We are proud to be part of the „Startplatz‘“ accelerator program and got some renowned scholarships and support.
Now we are looking to expand our team and take some fantastic people on this journey with us. Meanwhile, we‘re sorry to say that all the startup-clichés are true in our case as well: As of now we can not pay much and currently only offer a 3-month-contract with 20 hours a week but if you make a good fit and we make a good fit for you… we are ready to make you important and give you also the financial recognition as soon as we can. We are definitely looking forward to find full-time, permanent additions to the team that can grow into lead positions. High risk, high reward, you know the drill.
We offer flexible hours and of course working from home, but in a hopefully brighter, lockdown-free-future we would love to have you together in an office with us (see, we‘re planning longterm 😉 ). This is not a requirement though.
IMPORTANT: Please read the whole description to make sure we’re on the same page. We are excited to receive your application via firstname.lastname@example.org in which you tell us about yourself and your background/aspirations and provide a written text of yours (ENG/GER) which can be whatever you want it to be: an academic text segment, a poem, or the answer to a support ticket. Just show us who you are and that you are inspired! Cheers & hear you soon!
