Join FLOWN as they are looking for a Deep Work & Recharge Facilitator (US)

ABOUT FLOWN

FLOWN helps people work better. To get more done and feel good doing it. We do this by giving our members tools to focus, and tools to recharge their focus.

Our platform offers a holistic approach, based on all the scientific research into what helps us become more productive, creative and fulfilled.

FLOWN is led by successful serial entrepreneur, Alicia Navarro, founder of Skimlinks (acquired by Connexity April 2020), and backed by well-known investors. Read more about our recent raise here.

ABOUT THE ROLE

FLOWN’s unique offering a range of “live” and “on-demand” deep work experiences. These experiences focus on two key aspects of deep work: focusing and recharging. We are looking for Hosts to lead these experiences.

Here is an overview of two of our most popular experiences:

Flocks

Our flagship product - live co-working sessions called ‘Flocks.’ These utilise scientific processes and deep-work hacks to create a space for remote workers to accomplish their tasks, together. Flocks provide those who often work alone a sense of community, connection and most importantly accountability. These sessions are led by experienced hosts and we have a wonderfully diverse community of members.

We run Flocks each weekday at a range of times to suit multiple timezones.

Recharges

Alongside our Flocks, we have a range of on-demand content that helps our members recharge. We are keen to expand this content and deliver a collection of ‘live’ recharge content. Do you have something you think you can offer here? Let us know what it is in your cover letter! Think moments to play, creativity boosts, movement and more. What unique offering can you bring to FLOWN?

Building our team

Alongside Flocks and Recharges we have many other live and on-demand deep work experiences, and we continue to grow them based on the feedback from our members and Hosts.

Ultimately we are looking to build a network of diverse and charismatic Hosts who will join us in creating deep work content, and who will have the gravitas to guide our members (entrepreneurs, academics and other knowledge workers) through a range of experiences. In time, our Hosts may even become deep work coaches - so we are greatly interested in hearing from individuals from diverse backgrounds, industries and styles.

We pay hourly for adhoc/occasional work, but where there is a strong fit (and as we grow) we will look to put Hosts on monthly retainers.

RESPONSIBILITIES

Here are some of things you may be responsible for:

  • Greeting and welcoming members, creating a neutral ritual space for business people
  • Guiding each group through the ritualised structure, making it feel professional yet special
  • Reciting (and eventually perhaps creating) mindful moments, designed to prepare members for a day of deep work.
  • Coordinating break-out rooms for intention setting and reflections.
  • Facilitating online deep work sessions - doing your own deep work in the process!
  • Hosting live Recharge sessions that rejuvenate, replenish and revitalise members at various points throughout the day
  • Writing your own content for Recharge sessions - live and recorded
  • Recording video content to be used on FLOWN’s platform
  • Running virtual sessions smoothly, weaving multimedia elements in as structured, with limited oversight
  • Genuinely helping members become more focused, productive, accountable and creative through FLOWN
  • Providing feedback to FLOWN on audience engagement and ideas for content improvement.

Requirements

We think you’ll need the following experience in order to succeed in the role:

  • Experience using Zoom and other presentation tools
    • Including sharing sound, managing chat, breakout rooms and using security tools to manage the call
  • Experience presenting to large, live, virtual audiences.
  • Experience holding space for others to be themselves and experience our content openly
  • A second monitor if you are interested in running Flocks
  • Strong and stable wi-fi connection

In addition, here are the core attributes we think you'll need to succeed in the role:

  • Charismatic presenter - you have the gravitas to command the attention of a virtual audience consisting of entrepreneurs, creatives, developers, and other types of knowledge workers. You understand how to use your voice and body to both engage with audiences and put them at ease. You are able to read from a script in an engaging manner.
  • Strong personal brand - you have a personality that our members will be drawn to. You are able to come up with activities and thoughts of the day that reflect your personality.
  • Tech savvy - you can comfortably, confidently, and independently, operate various tools and multimedia elements whilst facilitating a live session.
  • Calm and confident - you can work off a script (and without one) with a natural ease, and you know when to ad-lib to get the most of a session. You aren't thrown if things don't go to plan, and always come across as authentic and poised.
  • Passionate about deep work - you're excited by FLOWN's mission, have knowledge and expertise in deep work, and can convey this passion and knowledge when hosting an audience.

Benefits

We want to practice what we preach, and build a company and team that works creatively and productively. Although this is a freelance role, there are still benefits we believe you'll gain in working with us:

  • Scope and influence - you're supporting a founding team and will be involved in shaping our product, what we do, and how we work.
  • Extensive training and coaching in deep work - we want our Hosts to be seen as industry leaders in deep work. For this reason we invest heavily in giving our Hosts access to research, tools, and data to guide them on this journey. In time, we’d love our Hosts to become deep work coaches.
  • Investment in your personal brand - our members form connections with our Hosts, and for this reason we love to showcase you! We invest in photography, and ensure you are given a platform to share your passions and personality.
  • A strong team and community - we are led by a proven CEO & Founder, and the rest of the team is equally highly experienced. We also have a high-calibre of investors with a solid runway. On top of this, our small network of Hosts have built a strong, online community amongst each other, and meet regularly to share learnings and support each other.
  • Fully dispersed, flexible working - we are a remote-first company, so you can work wherever you like provided it's quiet and distraction-free. We are looking to build up a small network of Hosts so that we can accommodate different working preferences and timetables.
  • FLOWN membership - we will provide all our Hosts with free FLOWN membership, so that they discover first-hand the benefits we are promising our members
