Chapps is a Startup that is transitioning into a Scaleup. Our main challenge is the growth of our already identified business model while maintaining operational controls. By joining us, you will be part of this exciting ride but do take note, it can be foreign. Below we have listed 5 facts that enlighten life in a Startup.
1. You learn to cope with change
It’s all about trial and error when you’re revolutionising an industry. Our goal is to find effective solutions and provide our clients with things that will benefit them. This requires experimenting until we find the right result. Expect to start one project on Monday and be concluding a completely different project on Friday.
2. You get to explore all your talents
With a challenging workload and a small team, you get to taste a bit of everything. In a large enterprise, you are traditionally set to one task. This is non-existent in a small team with large assignments. Job titles are nearly absent as you become the Jack of all trades. At your next family dinner when your uncle asks ‘what do you do?’ you will definitely have more than one answer!
3. You take responsibility
With every assignment requires the ability to work independently. Most work that comes into the company is new so it’s important to remain creative and take initiative. If there isn’t a solution, you will find one and become a pro at what you do.
4. Everything’s a team activity
You will be working independently but that doesn’t mean your team isn’t in the loop. Your work is always likely to be complemented with the work of another colleague and ideas and talent are shared throughout the office. There is always someone to look up to when guidance is needed and you are always encouraged to bring forward innovative ideas.
5. It’s chaotic
We’re not going to lie, a day in a startup is not like any other workplace. It is chaotic, but the good chaos that motivates you every day. One day you will be writing a social media post, the next day you are calling university manager in Canada. No day is the same and we are constantly on overdrive, but at the end of the day, when the results come in and its time to unwind, it is always worth it.
