Direct sales is a 25 billion USD industry across Latin America, but the four companies who control the market have innovated very little on their model over the past decades; we are changing that by digitizing the direct sales experience for both sellers and end-buyers.
We have launched our application (http://bit.ly/elenas-app), secured seed funding, and are already scaling across Colombia.
Elenas is a Polymath Ventures company based in Bogotá, Colombia. Polymath has built 7 social impact-focused businesses in Latin America, raising over 60 million USD in funding.
ABOUT THE ROLE
We’re looking for a driven computer engineer to join our development team. This person will work to develop our technical product and design the future of the Elenas platform.
You’ll have the freedom to own the technical product and will be involved in all key decisions on our technical strategy on a daily basis. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to develop your abilities in various technical areas as well as a chance to learn more about entrepreneurship, project management, and business strategy.
Salary is at competitive local market rates, with options for equity compensation and significant growth based on performance.
You’ll be working among a world-class team of entrepreneurs and business people who have collectively started 20+ companies in the US, Europe, and Latin America
Opportunity to live and work in an exciting and diverse location centrally located within Colombia and Latin America. Help with visa and relocation if needed.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Entrepreneurial drive: We are looking for someone who loves to build from scratch and wants to be involved in the business at every level: discussing long-term strategy one day and developing the product the next. You should be comfortable with the ambiguity and risk associated with this type of business, but excited about the potential for huge-growth in the near future.
Love of learning: We want a developer who considers themself a hacker. Someone who loves to learn new languages, build their own projects, and solve problems no matter how difficult they are.
Customer focus: At Descubre human-centered design and a customer-first perspective is at the core of who are. For you building a technical product shouldn’t just be about writing code, but instead should be about building a solution and product which our clients love.
