What

We help brands on Shopify sell subscriptions (+much more in the future). Since launching in late-April 2021, we've raised ~$7.4M in seed funding and are close to series B metrics.
Ways we stand out:
  • Post product-market-fit since we're "regiciding" a $2.1B incumbent with PMF (ReCharge). Liquid I.V., Bev, Muddy Bites, & most of our customers come from ReCharge.
  • Fintech + transaction fee business model (1% + 20c on every order).
  • One of the best times to join in terms of risk/reward (post-PMF while still being pre-series A). QSBS also still applies (tax reduction).
  • Solo-founded. Generally speaking, solo-founded companies can give more equity and that's what we do here. We believe very much in hiring 1 great fit over 3 good fits and giving the 1 great fit more equity.
  • Backed by Y Combinator (if investors matter to you).
  • D2C/Shopify app ecosystem is low tech. No competitors with strong engineering teams. Lots of low hanging fruit.
  • Set yourself up to be a founder (if you want to). Feel free to do a lot of learning here and go off on another adventure when the time is right.
  • Flat org structure (with leads/comprehension-first titles). Good read on this here.
  • Efficient meeting culture. Make reversible decisions over Slack quickly. Make irreversible decisions a bit slower with meetings. Short meetings instead of many 30m meetings.
  • Big long-term vision for building network effects.
  • Inspired by Netflix culture. Think of us like a startup/high-upside version.
  • Trillies, not billies. Unicorn means nothing. We aim for kermit ($1T+ valuation).

Great traits

  • Honest. Doesn't lie by omission / believe in ends justifying the means.
  • Can grind (aka work longer hours vs. a big tech company with 1000+ people).
  • Really good at something with high skill ceiling. Poker, piano, gaming, sports, past startup/project, anything.
  • Adventure-driven. We're here to build a legendary company & make some fun memories (+hopefully lots of money).
  • Similar sense of humor. We’re rekking a $2.1B, 8 year old incumbent as a 1 year old company and it’ll be more fun if you think it’s hilarious. It's pretty much trolling on a business level.
  • High delta in circumstances & outcome. It's a pretty strong signal when you're able to do much better than most people in your shoes would do.
  • Apolitical. Get shit done mentality (not performative). You care more about impact over title. Bonus points if you've experienced a political company culture and it killed you inside (will do our best to make sure this never happens here).
  • EV-based decision-making. You prioritize things that make customers happy + make us money.
  • Contrarian (within reason). You study the status quo and efficiently try to break it in the right ways.
  • Autonomous. Can take vague requests and get them done without needing too much help (if you need dedicated mentorship, it's not a fit).
  • Creative. 5 high quality ideas while working on 1 idea.

Why

A big part of joining a startup is betting on the founder(s). With this in mind/to save you time, here's some reasons to bet on me:
  • Track record of grinding:
    • Top 200 in LoL NA solo queue (100 million+ players globally) in 1 year.
    • Leetcoded internship offers (Pinterest, Stripe) & dropped out after 1 year to join Pinterest (2017).
    • Got into Y Combinator in 1 month post-idea (different idea that was bad). Ate shit for 1 year before pivoting to Skio.
    • Got product-market-fit + raised a seed for Skio in 4 months post-launch. Was solo during this time (did eng., sales, support, & fundraising).
  • No personal safety net (e.g. rich family, prior exits) forces me to work hard.
  • Thick-skinned. I'm used to being flamed from my gaming days :-) This helps me stay cool in high-pressure situations (I can help calm down angry people).
  • Won't tap out early. Many founders start focusing on other things in the $1-10B range (e.g. thought leadership, angel investing, other projects). I'll do my best to take Skio into the trillies (kermit).
