Is this you?

Great. Send me a sample of your work at trybean at gmail dot com.

If this is someone you know, send them this link and have them do the same.

Want to know what you’ll be doing?

Nothing much…just disrupting one of the largest industries on the planet. Our small and very nimble team will be re-inventing the way automobiles get leased and delivered in the Detroit market. Did you know that there are over 100,000 new cars sold and leased in the tri-county area every year? Right. It’s a bigger market than you thought.

Your role will be to help provide the information that “users” need to see to understand and utilize this new process. It’s effectively training and marketing rolled into one.

We intend to do a lot of this messaging through Ken Burns style video placed on a website that we Goopplazoned (think Google + Apple + Amazon) that is up and running.


This role will start in less than two weeks. Need to hire the right people (there are actually 2.5 roles available) and get started. This is a start up company and will operate as such.


The pay for these two full time roles will be $3125.00 per month. The 2.5 role can not be clearly defined until the first two are hired.
