About Ahoy ๐Ÿ‘‹

We believe community-led is the โ€˜next big thingโ€™ for how creators, startups, and enterprises grow, but... today, community managers lack the understanding of what really happens inside their audience and what value it brings. That is why weโ€™re building AhoyConnect - a community data intelligence platform, that enables organizations to understand, grow, engage, automate, and derive value from their audiences.

We closed our Seed investment round in September 2021, launched the product, and onboarded the first customers. This is just the first, tiny step - we aim to build a successful global business that will shape the future of community-led growth. We want you to have an impact and be a part of this journey!

Our teammates gained experience from companies such as InVision, Dropbox, Facebook, Segment, Delivery Hero, or Productboard.

About our culture ๐Ÿ—ฟ

We are a fully remote team that values transparency, clear communication, and the discussion of facts and opinions. We trust our people to tell us how things should be done, not the other way round. We run retreats (both before and after covid) โ€“ e.g., we've spent more than a month in Southeast Asia with the whole team. And in October 2021 we spent a week in Mallorca together โ˜€๏ธ We believe we are a bunch of extremely driven and **collaborative teammates** coming out of various places and backgrounds. Flexible working hours and environment, asynchronous yet collaborative work, and having as few internal meetings and procedures as possible are not buzzwords to us. We live them.


Type of employment: Full-time independent contractor for an indefinite period (B2B invoice). If you haven't worked this way before, please find more information here on working as a contractor in your location.

Ahoy is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Please do not hesitate to apply using the button below!
