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 values, 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 in 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 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.
