Leave your mark on the world,
literally

"A man of ordinary talent will always be ordinary, whether he travels or not; but a man of superior talent will go to pieces if he remains forever in the same place"
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Great ain’t easy

Do you believe travel is the most powerful tool we have for connecting people, communities, and cultures? Are you the kind of person that goes poking around a startup’s boring unlisted web pages? If yes, then read on.

We’re not quite ready to hire just yet, but if you’re…

  • a dogged developer
  • a designer with an eye for slick and sexy UI/UX
  • an empathetic community manager with a superpower for understanding the unspoken, or
  • a sassy social media connoisseur that can make people laugh, think, and feel

then you should talk to us sooner than later.

Chances are if you made it to this page, you’ve already worked in a startup or thought of it, but we’ll give you the bittersweet reality anyway; the first months aren’t sexy. We’re a small adventurous team that wants to change the world through travel. Days will be hectic, some nights will be long, and you’ll find yourself doing a lot of tasks that are out of role. Every so often you may tell us all to “f—k off” and curse the day you ever thought to work in a startup. But at the heart of our team is people who care about doing great things in the world and leaving it better than we found it. It’s no small task. For that reason we want to inspire and encourage you to bring your A-game. When the dust finally settles, we hope this will be the happiest and most exhilarating place you’ll ever work.

If all that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, then you might be the kind of person we need to get this party started.

We’re based in Manchester, United Kingdom. It helps if you can make it here, but we’ll chat with anyone anywhere. It also helps if you don’t mind a bit of rain.

We are people persons who have enough reading to do, so skip the cover letter. It’s 2018, try introducing yourself with a video. Don’t worry about what you look like. You can be hot mess with a pimple on your nose, sweatpants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on; it’s whats inside that counts. We want to see you in all your glory!
Try and keep it around 5 minutes and tell us
  • Your name (duh!)
  • Why you think travel is important
  • What you’re currently working on
  • What you want to bring to the team
  • What excites you about WayFare
When you’re ready upload your video to YouTube (make sure to set the video to unlisted) and drop your details in the form below. If we think you may be a good fit, we’ll follow up for more details and let you know the next steps and our current timescales.
If, for any reason, you cannot make a video, try and inspire us. Set our imaginations alight! We admire creativity and resourcefulness.

Ready to be superior?

Privacy + Transparency = Harmony

We aim to be relentlessly transparent in all our dealings. So here’s what you need to know (in average-sized font)

  • We protect your submission under the EU’s rigorous GDPR Law, even if you’re not an EU resident.
  • You can ask us to delete your entire application at any time.

What about the perks?

You can bet there will be some awesome and very obvious perks to come, but for now if getting on the ground floor of an exciting startup isn’t compelling enough we might not be your ideal employer just yet. Stay tuned.
