Looking to hire Detroit Hackers, Painters and Makers #jobs #dny



Before getting too deeply into this, let me promise you a couple of things: 1) I will define what I mean by Hacker, Painter and Maker (skip to 4 paragraphs down if you can’t wait) and 2. No, there isn’t a specific role in mind, we fully believe in hiring the right people so they can add value where needed.

I was at BrandCamp University in October and listening to Henry Balanon speak about lessons he’s learned from his start-ups. The one that really stuck out was his theory on the first 10 hires. They are the most critical hires there are. It seems obvious, and is a solid reminder. When you’re building a company from scratch, just because you think you know which direction you’re sailing, the winds change quickly.

My partner (he’s a hacker) and I were discussing “Who” we are looking for today and the only thing we fully agreed on is that we don’t really know. I think it’s important that these people like cars, people and technology. He says it doesn’t matter as long as they are problem solvers.

We asked the four people who work with us why they work here and we heard some good stuff: “Love the environment”. “It’s a cool place to work with a great team”. “I get to wear what I want” (that was from the Ph. D. candidate programmer ha ha). “I’m learning a ton and working on really interesting projects”. Personally, I think we are working on the coolest project in the Motor City and I say that fully aware of many of the coolest projects in the Motor City.

So what about these crazy terms in the title? Well, they all boil down to a couple of things: 1. Each one of these people are very passionate about whatever they’re passionate about. 2. They get stuff done. Simply stated, WE NEED PASSIONATE DOERS. Here are some definitions:

HACKER- A hacker is a problem solver plain and simple. Sure you may associate them with computer programmer (please don’t assume that hackers are cracking into government systems, cuz that’s a media thing) but you can hack things without writing code. A hacker looks at a problem, creates unique ways to solve it and stays with the problem until it’s done. Special note: Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the original Hackers. Turns out he was a hell of a painter and maker too.

Painter- A painter is an artist, but that doesn’t mean they have to paint with a brush. Maybe they paint with a mouse. Maybe they paint with a pencil. Hell, maybe they don’t paint at all. They’re the creative geniuses that can tell stories using whatever medium they have.

Maker- A maker puts things together. They’re the builders. They see disparate parts and assemble them accordingly.

In most instances, what exists now exists as a result of some combination of Hackers, Painters and Makers.

So like the quotation from Da Vinci suggests, we will worry about the people (environment) before we worry about what role they will fill (reason).

IF, you’re a hacker, painter or maker, sorry for attempting to define you. You already know who you are. These definitions are for people who know you and are here in an effort to get them to call this post to your attention.

We look forward to hearing from you!

We will hire two digital Hipsters in the next two weeks…What’s a Hipster you ask??? #DNY

Homer the Hipster

Digital Hipster: An individual who is versed in digital marketing techniques who is cross trained amongst multiple mediums including (but not all): Design, User Experience, Video (both creation and editing), Copy-writing, Social and some understanding of HTML/CSS.

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.
