“The bare minimum is a top-notch cover letter.”

The person has to explain to us what role it is that we don’t have and don’t know we need and how she can make an impact that we can’t miss out on.



“Too many only attach a resume which disqualifies them instantly.”




“In a remote job it’s crucial a person can take initiatives to start on things without anyone nudging her.”

Hugo joined Doist as Marketing Intern in 2015 in Porto. He still works there full time!


“The vision has changed to building the future we want to work in.”

That future is one that protects us from being overworked and leaves time for deep work and mindful communication.
