We’re growing, and we’re looking for you to join in the fun! 😃

This role is perfect for a young go getter - someone freshly out of college who is eager to get hands-on experience in what it takes to get growth initiatives off the ground and to the finish line.

In our eyes, you’re a self-starter who doesn’t need someone to hold your hand. You’re confident in your abilities to understand a brief and then you are full steam ahead to make sure we deliver on the promise we made ourselves, our customers, and our students.

That said, you’re also curious - you don’t take things at face value and you ask clarifying questions to ensure you can make informed decisions.

This job won’t be easy - you’ll be doing bits of everything and in some cases, building the plane while you fly. But, it’ll be a lot of fun - are you up for the challenge?! 😬 🔥

About Strive

  • We’re a well-funded startup backed by YCombinator and early investors of Spotify and Facebook.


  • We care more about your attitude than qualifications - but it would be helpful if you have qualifications in marketing or commerce


  • You have the tools to work remotely (laptop + connectivity)
  • Highly organised with meticulous attention to detail
  • A very strong written communicator - you will be writing copy for social media and it needs to be bang on brand


  • You have worked in a fast-paced environment before
  • You’ve dabbled in growth hacking before
  • You’re a fun-to-be-around individual 🤪
