WeeBID is transforming the creative economy, and we need your help.

Nice to meet you.

Are you passionate about the creator economy? Do you see the potential to transform the landscape of fan-artist engagement into a direct marketplace that gives more control, leverage, and money to creators, while helping fans connect more intimately with the creators they love? Are you tired of the gatekeepers and incumbent platforms controlling creator's access to their fanbase and manipulating the marketplace towards clickbait content?

weeBID is looking for an experienced product owner to lead the creation of an app to tap into the vast potential of the new creative economy, and build the first creator-friendly, fan-driven marketplace of ideas.

What is weeBID?

WeeBID is a startup based in LA, servicing the arts/music industry with a new social marketplace application. We've developed a new model of fan/artist engagement to help artists understand and monetize the desires of their fans, get artists paid, and gets fans what they want better than any other application.

Technically, weeBID is the first fan-initiated crowdfunding platform, where fans submit ideas to creators, and commit small amounts of money to crowdfund those ideas. Fans only pay if/when an artist completes an idea. This gives creators a list of exactly what their fans want, and an easy way to monetize their ideas, while enabling fans to leverage the crowd to get what they want from creators. More at weebid.app.

The company was founded by Greg Spero, keyboardist with Halsey for 4 years and globally recognized jazz pianist. Spero formulated the model for weeBID over years of experience observing where fan-initiated crowdfunding could solve problems for artists and fans. After performing for over 3 million people in person and over 100 million on television, he dedicated himself to manifesting this model that could unearth huge potential for the arts and beyond.

We have 500 users, pre-seed financing from reputable VCs, three full time developers including CTO, full time designer, a patent-pending on the fan-initiated crowdfunding model, and growing buzz in the entertainment industry. We are uniquely positioned to bring a new, better model to fan/artist engagement, and are looking for someone to lead the product vision of our company. Early adopters include Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, and other prominent figures in music and sports.

The opportunity.

We're looking for someone to own product at weeBID. Not just a product manager, but a thought partner; someone who can take our existing product, talk to users, run experiments, envision, and iterate toward a product that unearths the vast potential of fan-generated ideas. We need a critical thinker who loves experimenting and problem solving.

You'll be working with our CTO to bring your vision to life, starting with our already functional app, and creating a vision that works best for fans and creators.

The ideal candidate is someone ready to partner with us as product cofounder, and is an experienced product lead passionate about building a startup. Extra ideal would be if you've lead product for a mobile app involving a 2-sided-marketplace, social media, and/or entertainment.

Some deets.

We're an early stage startup and have raised money, but we're still pre Series A. As such the salary range is of course much lower than it will become once we get into the later stages of our growth. We need someone that understands this and is willing to be scrappy for the coming months until we can get ourselves to a place where we can pay ourselves market rate.

Initial compensation can be a combination of salary and equity, from $60k to $90k and from 1% to 10% equity depending on level of experience.
