To Preseed applicants (Hiring)
Please read this before you apply to work with Preseed or Nishchal
WANTED. REAL PEOPLE.
“Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn”. This is how we live. This is how we work. You could either continue to be where you are, doing what you do,
however stupid and uninspiring it may be, or you could come and help us in shaking the perception of ‘how things are done’.
Preseed applicants or collaborators,
Since long, people have been working for money and not for happiness. We want to change that. We want to let people work for and/or on a cause that they believe in. Dream with us.
Before you are onboarded, we would like you to know that we don’t compensate you or us by paying salaries yet? We compensate you and us through equity instead. We work with people to ‘co build’ stuff with them over, sometimes if need be, a fairly long period of time. If you could look to work with us on helping us sincerely as one of the potential partners on our products then work with us. So neither is this like a full-time job nor a freelance opportunity. This is clearly an opportunity to be an entrepreneur.
Your job with us may be putting the codes or designs or both or more to one or more such product/startup opportunities while being as imaginative as you like. You may or may not chose to do it full time, as long as you do it timely.
Do you see yourself being able to build stuff on the web that may either be a product or a story that is used by millions of people someday to solve their most intrinsic needs?
Over a period of 1 MVP life cycle* will we know how well do you fit into our scheme of things. Thereafter, you could expect us to give you and ourselves a co-owner based opportunity in the product we are working on together.
It is really about the relationship we build with each other that determines if we could be partners in at least one project that you are majorly working with us on, the project you are responsible for.
I am convinced that most MVPs we are going to build will be built, with you guys’ at near 0 monetary costs, at first. It is this MVP which would be attempted by all of us involved to translating it into a startup that we will co own.
This team(i.e. you) is also an equity stake holder upto 20% or in certain cases more, in the product being developed. We want exceptional hackers to work on these products. If the hackers and designers involved think they can lead this product into a worthy startup we would be willing to offer greater share into the product built henceforth. It is in fact important for us that the team of each of our products is capable of leading their respective products into a successful business upon their own labor. Because some of us have to lay the ground upon which our future mountains as mentioned after step 2 will be built.
- MVP life cycle — The cycle of iterations till we have a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) with some real consumer traction.
Those who engage with us. We don’t put them on contract papers first before we actually move forward with them because we trust them far more than some crap written on binding papers.
I mean you are going to be one of the stakeholder either in the form of a partner, student, intern, volunteer, a potential startup co-founder, a hacker, a designer, an investor, merely a fellow being
interested in newness, or a mere critique. So you might want to know us, through what we write here, share or post on our facebook page or various blogs. By now you should find yourself
slightly in tune with what we do and how we do.
We respect people who genuienly seek and care about something. A seeker who questions is always better than a blind follower.
Who we want to work with:
People who are passionate, curious and most importantly resonate with our culture.
What you can expect from us:
A chance to work and/or lead a potentially courageous and conscientious world-class project with reasonable equity in it.
Understand what it means to be an entrepreneur. We help you discover the driving force that can make you go above and beyond your comfort zone.
What we expect from you:
We trust you and can let you be even known as a co-founder of our project that has the potential to change the world. We want you to return that trust by being authentic in your efforts and actions.
Money should not be the “driving force” for anything we do. We want to make life-changing products and,in the process, let our users and our teams discover their “true calling”.
