Hi, I’m the VP of Customer Success at Loka and since we’ll be working together on challenging and innovative projects, I want you to know what will make this a great fit – and why this is some of the most rewarding project management work you can do.

Loka isn’t for everyone. It’s for people who a.) genuinely love technology and want to improve as a professional or b.) want to work on a variety of startups and make a marked improvement in the world. Hopefully you’re both, but you must be at least one.

We’re based in Silicon Valley, but we’ve been remote since day one. Last year my team of engineers and designers helped route out hate speech on Twitter, eliminate $1 billion in food waste, launch 4 projects in our own incubator, accelerate 3 startups to acquisition, and still enjoyed every other Friday off. We are fortunate to work with mission-driven startups and Fortune 500s, including Gatorade, Dyson, Blue Cross Blue Shield Institute, and Coca-Cola.

We have a lot to offer. All I ask in return is the best you can give. Join our team, grow in surprising ways, and launch projects you believe in with creative people around the world.
