Being an app assistant at Theme Junky Apps is the easiest way of getting to know us: our apps, vision, goals, and last but not least our team. So it’s an entry-level position that wants to achieve two main objectives:
- Create value by performing relatively easy tasks
Here’s an example: We’re launching a new version of Keyboard Plus with an autocorrect feature. It has algorithms that detect when you typed something wrong and it automatically corrects your mistake. For this to work well, we need a lot of testing and fine-tuning, otherwise, we’ll end up pissing people off.
So your task would be to use the new Keyboard Plus app during conversations on Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger. You’d take notes every time the keyboard made a wrong correction and based on your insights we can improve our algorithms. That’s easy work for you – you just chat with your friends, but it creates huge value for the company because we get to constantly improve our new keyboard autocorrect feature.
2. Show what you’re made off
We want people that are ambitious, smart, and relentless. We need people that love a challenge and aren’t set back by obstacles and apparent failures. You’ll be given all sorts of tasks and responsibilities, initially small, and as you show you got what it takes to manage tricky situations, you’ll grow. As a person, team member, and valuable asset to the company.
You’ll get tasks that are out of your comfort field. Take this as an opportunity to grow and show you’re capable of handling anything that this crazy mobile industry can throw at you. It’s not a matter of being a know-it-all, it’s all about your approach and how you deal with somewhat difficult situations. This is how you can transition to another position, say Marketing Expert or Product Manager.
Finally, we’re big on growing our skill set. Read up as much as you want during office hours on any of our Kindle devices. Don’t like the read? How about you listen to any audiobook from Audible.com? No? Maybe watching is your thing. For you, we have video training from Lynda.com. Oh, and if there’s anything else you need, just let us know, we’re always open to new ideas.
