Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
We launched in private beta two months ago, and the response has been very exciting. Our early users love the product and we have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Forbes, The Telegraph, TechCrunch, The Information, CNBC, and WIRED — as well as a huge range of thoughtful blog posts.
Today, we are a small and productive team with a strong background in consumer products. We studied engineering at Stanford, built early products at Google and Pinterest, and have founded and sold multiple venture-backed startups. We are well funded, with recent backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors in Silicon Valley.
As we look towards a broader release of Clubhouse, we are seeking to add a few extraordinary people to our core team. These will be the company’s first full-time hires.
Who you are
You thrive in a startup environment.
You turn things around quickly, enjoy fast-paced days and are comfortable changing course based on new data. You seek to move metrics. You work nights and weekends with your team not because you feel you have to, but because you love what you are doing and you want to build something big for the world. Your favorite thing to do is to take on a huge challenge and pull it off.
You are a full-stack designer.
While you might be stronger in certain areas than others, you’re comfortable with all aspects of design. You can zoom out to think about overall UX, or zoom in to create clean and simple buttons, list views, and animations. You are a skilled visual designer, enjoy illustrating and love beautiful typography. You can make basic webpages yourself—or if not, you would enjoy learning how to.
You are a systems thinker.
You are thoughtful about things like network structure, follow models, user discovery, and privacy tools. You understand the importance of sequencing and stage your work accordingly. You build style guides and color palettes, and you design experiences where everything fits together.
You understand the psychology of social products.
You constantly focus on user motivations. You wonder about how an interaction will make people feel and how it will affect their status. You think about different audiences. You look for the little big details that will delight people at just the right moment.
You are detail oriented.
When you put together a quick spec, you take pride in thinking through every edge case, empty state, and error state. You notice when things are a half pixel off. You obsess over animations, transitions and copy because you know what a difference these things make.
You are fluent with tools.
Your design files are meticulously organized and you know every Figma keyboard shortcut. You have strong opinions on which tools to use and have finely-tuned systems for exporting assets, getting feedback, and working efficiently with engineers.
You have good values.
You care about doing the right thing. You value diversity and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, are low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone. You think this website Rohan built when he was 13 is amazing, and you share it with your coworkers frequently.
What you will do
You’ll design features that ship.
As part of the Clubhouse team, you will move fast. Whether it’s pushing a visual fix immediately after seeing it or designing a thoughtful invite model that will help Clubhouse scale to millions of users, you’ll constantly be building and shipping quality product. With your teammates, you’ll be amazed by how much you get done.
You’ll grow and improve rapidly.
At Clubhouse you’ll be working with some of the most talented people you’ve ever met, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching to new areas, immersed in feedback, challenged by your teammates, and growing on a daily basis.
You’ll shape the product.
You will use what you design—and talk with others while they are using it—every day. As the champion of the user, you will have major input into the product’s development and future direction. Your ideas will always be heard.
You’ll have responsibility and be trusted.
We believe in hiring amazing people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle. Whether it’s leading a visual redesign, building out new platforms, or designing a scalable network growth model, we will trust your judgment, give you autonomy, and always have your back.
You’ll learn about company-building.
From fundraising, to recruiting, to negotiating our office lease post-COVID, you’ll have exposure to all aspects of growing and running an early stage startup. Along the way, you’ll get connected with mentors and advisors who can help you for the rest of your career.
You’ll create something meaningful.
Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. When the telephone was invented, it suddenly allowed people to speak with others across the world. Thanks to FaceTime, grandparents everywhere can now watch their grandchildren grow up. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early employee at Clubhouse you will be a critical part of our core team and have a huge influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and do everything we can to make sure this is the single best work experience of your life.
If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you.
