Why Work at Bikat Adventures:
Working for a start-up is anyways fashionable these days. So, rather than giving you the usual reasons like small office, no fix work timings, no bureaucracy, or promise of a great future, let’s give you some fresh ones or specifically speaking 3 big reasons:
- Adventure Exposure: This is no rhetoric! Everyone working as a Bikat would be exposed to the adventure we offer, be it marketing, sales or digital. It makes business sense and hence we do it J
- Growth Opportunity: We have few employees but we never had any attrition till now. We know this might not hold true for too long but it does speak of what we have done in the past 3 years. Our people have grown from helpers to cooks to mountaineers and we are proud of them. The growth you can imagine would be yours and we would plan it together.
- No Hierarchy: We know that this is promised at all start-ups but once you join the gang, you will see for yourself. Everyone plays a role at a time, CEO may become the belayer, COO may be the assistant to Expedition Leader, and CMO may be a trainee to an instructor! We are not suggesting any chaos where we don’t know who does what but we keep wearing different hats as required and once you are there with a hat, you wear it with pride!
How to Apply: To apply for any position send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with job title as subject of email.
This is the central role for our company and there is no way to directly join us in this role from outside. We do not hire for this job from outside but the role is the next step for those hired as Asst Expedition Leaders (apply for it) . Hence, the role is explained here in order to describe what would be the job on offer eventually (once the Training is over).
