Have you ever commented on a complete stranger’s blog just to provide some helpful info? Do you get a little kick out of being able to help answer a friend’s query on social media?

- 1-5 years professional work experience, or internships of extraordinary relevance and quality
- Exceptional persuasive-writing ability : your college application essay made the Dean cry, and your status updates win more “likes” than a skateboarding puppy doing the Harlem Shake.
- Citizen Web : you have a strong affinity for internet culture, spend time contributing and sharing online, and may even have dabbled in WordPress, HTML, web design, or coding.
- Startup compatibility : you’re comfortable with changing roles, blistering speed, and figuring it out as you go along
- Passion for helping small businesses succeed
- Self-disciplined : you prefer to structure your own tasks, all the better to try out that new hyper-productivity system you read about last weekend
- Virtually extraverted : it’s OK if you’re shy at parties, but on the internet you’re not afraid to speak up, always remembering that there’s a real person on the other side of your monitor, and connecting in an authentic manner whether you’re pitching a TechCrunch writer or helping Milfred find a new web host for her gluten free dog biscuit store.

Our company Open Development, Inc. is a fast-growing startup offering a unique “software+service” model to help startups and SMEs improve the performance of their website with greater effectiveness and lower cost than a traditional marketing agency. You can think of our software side as something like Siri for your website, or “an online marketing expert in a box”, offered through partners like domain registrars and web hosts, as well as through our own brands CanIRank and Growth AI. Our Full Service marketing agency half is like “Uber for online marketing”, with a distributed team of online marketing professionals working together on the opportunities identified by the software.
By combining the power of machine learning and a specialized on-demand workforce, we help SMEs compete with the mega-corporations like Amazon and Walmart, and prevent the web from turning into just another Big Brand strip mall.
A few things that make us unique as a company:
- Founded by an experienced entrepreneur who has worked at 7 startups in 3 countries, including one $200M+ exit
- Our core technology was developed by a team of 3 Stanford engineers, with help from one of the world’s leading predictive analytics experts
- We reward great work with “thank you” gifts that have included a Kindle, speakers, a trip to Paris, an espresso machine, and sailing trips
- We’re a distributed team with contributors from San Francisco, Seattle, Quebec, Cordoba, and elsewhere. Never has meeting your coworkers been this much fun!
- We believe a healthy employee is a productive one, and that means taking time away from the computer to cultivate other interests, which for us range from rock climbing to organic farming to game design
- A supportive company culture focused on helping each other become better at what we do, both informally (celebrating successes, pooling expertise, sharing good reads, etc) and formally (6-week paid training period, mentoring & feedback from experienced marketers, budget for continuing education)
