Demonstrate the 5 Reactor core values: #PeopleFirst, #MoveFast, #BeBold, #HaveFun, and #BeAwesome. This is a deal-breaker; we hire based on values, attitudes and skills, in that particular order. We believe that with the right values and attitudes, skills can be picked-up over time.
Have the right attitude: Be a first principles thinker, demonstrate a growth mindset, be able to practise radical candour, and be relentlessly resourceful. (If you haven’t heard of Carol Dweck, Kim Scott or Paul Graham, we would strongly encourage you to google them up before hitting ‘Apply’.)
Be trustworthy, personable and be able to build rapport with others. Be someone that your fellow teammates can look up to and respect at all times. Be warm, be humble and be self-aware. We do not tolerate brilliant jerks here at Reactor.
Be fiercely inquisitive, driven and passionate about startups, technology and entrepreneurship.

Requirements for Skills and Qualifications

We do not look at academic achievements or certificates when hiring; the year is 2023 and we are beyond that. We will look at your portfolio and what you’ve built, your unique experiences and what you’ve learned, as well as the potential value that you can bring to #TeamReactor.
Proven experience with organising events and coordinating between stakeholders to ensure smooth delivery of programme.
Proven experience in a related field such as startups, venture capital, accelerators, incubators or venture building programmes.
Possess an expansive network consisting of entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, venture capitalists and industry partners.

Application Process & How to Apply

Step 1 of 4. Tell us more about yourself over video. You will complete an online self-interviewing tool. This shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes, and it also helps everyone save time from having to travel excessively.
Step 2 of 4. Complete a skills-based challenge. If you’re shortlisted, we’ll send you a few tasks to test for your entrepreneurial aptitude and skills. This shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes, and it’ll help you better understand what will be expected of the role.
Step 3 of 4: Finding alignment with your Reporting Officer. We’ll then introduce you to your Reporting Officer (RO), as well as some of the other members of #TeamReactor. During this discussion, we hope to modify/update the job description to balance out what the team needs help with, as well as how we can best leverage on your gifts, strengths and expertise.
Step 4 of 4. Meet with the Chief People Officer. Separately, or on the day itself, you'll also meet with the Chief People Officer (CPO). Upon selection, we will discuss matters related to People Ops, including culture, working hours, other commitments, as well as compensation and benefits. An official Employment Contract will then be drafted for your review. This is also the time for you to test us; we invite you to ask us the difficult questions to see if #TeamReactor really lives up to all that we claim to be.
