A Different Approach

People over job descriptions

We wrote some job descriptions, but they are more suggestions. What we mean is, we have some tasks that are absolute needs and may fit under a certain title, but as a startup there may be other places you can plug in that might not seem obvious for the role. That's why our application strives to highlight other skills you have, that way we can craft the role with the strongest candidates.

Full- and part-time positions

We want to find the right people for our team. This means taking a flexible approach to hiring. Positions have the potential to be full-time or to start as part-time. Depending on the candidate, some part-time roles may be combined to be a full-time position.


We’ve learned that even more important than a person’s professional background is who they are as a person, their work style (read: they can get stuff done), and how they mesh with Savvy.
