Description

At RevoU, we are on a mission to transform the state of higher education in Southeast Asia, and together with it, the lives of millions of people.

We are building a more effective alternative to traditional universities and vocational schools, rethinking how education should serve both students and employers' needs in Indonesia's booming digital economy.

Working hand in with industry leaders, top companies and learning scientists we develop together the most effective programs to deliver the learning that today’s job market needs. We obsess about our students' success and are relentlessly driven by unlocking each of our student’s full potential, regardless of their background.

In the short span of two years we have already helped hundreds of students transform their careers, with thousands more waiting to start their journey with us in the upcoming months.

Our CEO Office - Special Projects role is designed for exceptional talent with experience, who are looking to fast-track their career by working on some of the most strategic and complex multi-functional projects within RevoU.

Expect to be working on projects which you will own from start to end. Each projects requires meticulous strategic planning & flawless execution and in most cases will require you to build a team to support the execution. You will be working directly with our CEO and Senior Leadership with the opportunity to work on some of the most exciting projects in the education technology space. With your dedication, passion, and entrepreneurial energy we expect you to shape the growth trajectory of the company in the months and years to come.

Once the project successfully launched, the initial ramp up is achieved and the right team in place, you will be given the chance to either lead your team and scale the project or to move on to launching new projects across Southeast Asia.

The role is also a fast track to achieve a leadership positions within RevoU and we highly encourage the those who fast track a career and grow fast to apply.

Oh, and you will be based wherever you want (we are a fully distributed company).

Some example of projects you could be working on:

  • Launch brand new programs for our students
  • Experiment on new growth initiatives across partnerships, marketing channels, diverse growth hacking initiatives
  • Expand our product offering internationally to new target markets across the region
  • Select, implement, or develop technological tools to improve the operational efficiency of our internal teams
  • Develop tools and programs specifically targeted to some our key stakeholders such as instructors or career coaches

Requirements (aka 'what you bring to the table')

We are mainly looking for people who:

  • have a track record of one or multiple promotions within a short time span in fast growing mid & large sized startups (LZD, GoJek, etc)
  • have experience in international big tech companies (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc)
  • are former founders or very early employees of small startups. Adrenaline seekers, hungry for growth and easily bored top achievers, who want to deploy their skills in an environment which can provide them a competitive salary and coaching from seasoned tech executives and entrepreneurs
  • want to step out from their prestigious position in high demanding and selective companies (ie. top consulting firms) to move to a job which can give them more meaning while continuing to perform at the highest level
  • can show us truly exceptional achievements despite not fitting into any of the descriptions above

We also have a strong bias for hiring people who can “punch above their weight class”. That is who have the drive and qualities to step up a role, on their way to future leadership positions.

More specifically we are looking for the following skills:

  • Highly structured and analytical thinking, with the ability of keeping the big picture in mind: the scope of work for each project will be very broad and you will need to breakdown complex information into smaller parts, prioritizing what is important and optimizing for it (80:20 rule)
  • Highest standards: impeccable attention to details and high standards approach to any of your work output. You can read more here on what we mean by having a culture of high standards
  • Business savviness: pre-condition (necessary yet not sufficient) to excel at any of the project given will be to understand our business truly inside-out. This includes our high level strategic decision making process, the competitive arena we are in, the industry dynamics and, at a more micro level, how each function and teams impact each other.
  • Research skills: you will be expected to spend a lot of time, especially in the beginning, in researching the market (not only ID but worldwide) to help you come up with the best go to market strategy
  • Ability to get sh*t done: in each project you will be starting on your own, study the market (see point above), start executing and only after start building a team and delegating. It goes without saying that you will need to get your hands extremely dirty throughout the whole process
  • Extreme sense of ownership: no need to explain this one :)
  • Passionate about education and our mission: we are building a culture of people obsessively passionate about our mission and the impact we can have on the lives of millions of people. Hiring people with the same degree of genuine drive, makes everything much easier (and more fun)

Benefits

Beyond what we wrote in the description of the role, we have three additional promises for you (and to all of our employees):

Our first promise - the ride of a lifetime

You will be joining the company in its most exciting phase, where things will move and change at a crazy pace and where the impact you have on the overall business trajectory is huge. You will witness the rapid scaling of our organization from 80 of us (we were 10 of us just one year ago!!) to hundreds of incredibly talented and diverse people in the months and years to come.

Our company growth will mean much faster career growth than other companies of similar size. Our most talented junior employees who joined us 1 year ago, are for example now in charge of entire teams, working on some of the most exciting strategic and operational topics within the education industry.

The second promise - a good place to work

We are building a company that takes the growth of its employees as seriously as that of its students. It’s our mandate to make every one of our employees perform at the maximum of their ability so that they can do here, at RevoU, the very best work of their lives. In practical terms:

  • we deeply value employee appreciation and we are going the extra mile to make everyone’s work feel appreciated and valuable
  • we are creating a culture of transparency and radical, caring feedback. That is, of radical candor, keep a zero-tolerance for bad management, making coaching and mentoring one of our fundamental value, not only towards our students but also towards our employees. For a more in-depth view of the type of organization we are building, you can read some of our Founder’s thoughts on these topics
  • this translates into record- high employee satisfaction (our monthly eNPS hovers on the 70-80 range), very low employees turnover and a disproportionate share of new hires coming from our employees referrals

The third promise – you will feel proud about your work

We believe that finding a fulfilling career should be among the most important priorities in one's life and that today’s job market offers endless opportunities to change the lives of many, for the better. You will play a fundamental role in making this possible.

And nothing will beat the sense of accomplishment once you will see that happening. Especially once you see that happening at scale.

These are 3 most important promises we are making to you.

If you are looking for ‘startup’ benefits: flexible and remote working environment (fyi - only 50% of our staff live in Jakarta), an attractive package, premium health insurance, etc => we are offering you all these benefits as well

But don’t join us for these, join us first and foremost for the 3 reasons above.
