Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: UK

Category: Marketing / Sales


Reports to:

COO

Description:

Who are we?

Over puts the power to inspire the world, build a business, or grow your brand – in the palm of your hand. You can create impactful visual content in just a few taps, with no design experience necessary.

 At Over we believe that Creativity is the magical act of making change happen. It’s the power to reinvent yourself and the sorcery of making something out of nothing.

It's also the terror of a blank page; a rough destination with no directions.  But with the right tools, creativity turns any obstacle course into a playground. 

So we take the hard parts out, so our users can focus on the joy of making change happen!

We’re also an award winning bunch (yes! You read that right - we’re one of Apple’s 2019 apps of the year in the ‘Storytelling Simplified’ category) with a distributed team spanning a wide range of locations – and we’re constantly growing.

At Over, we live and breathe these values – and they show up in everything we do:

  • Go big and go home – good products come from the heart, and good hearts come from healthy homes and minds.
  • Growth is at the heart of everything we do – we proactively learn whatever is necessary to build a truly great product and company.
  • We say “thank you”. Like, a lot. For big things, small things, old things and new things. Our #gratitude Slack channel is a constant reminder we’re an overwhelmingly grateful bunch.
  • Inspire – not just our users, but each other. On any given day, you’ll learn something new, hear a great story, feel empowered, get a hug, or a high five. It’s just how it goes.
  • We are resilient – we embrace failure, celebrate spills, and recover quickly from a punch to the throat. It happens.
  • We see it big, and keep it simple – clearly visualizing the future, but keeping an eye on the details, and breaking it down into tiny habits, actions and experiments.

To fit in well at Over, you will ideally have:

  • A voracious appetite for learning, growing and teaching despite your experience
  • Excellent communication skills (we have a very open feedback culture)
  • Organization skills, with the ability to prioritize and work to deadlines
