Why join us? ❤️

The team is really cool and ambitious, the offices are amazing - we don't have any 😂, you can work from wherever you want on our beautiful planet 🌍and you get to participate in sharing smiles (this is an opportunity to sell a product that doesn't keep you up at night!).

If you want a ticket to the moon 🌗 it's still expensive but we should be able to help reserve a spot for you ;)

But also...

It is an opportunity...

* To join a company whose mission is to put people at the heart of its business and to have a real impact on the lives of its customers and their community (owners, travelers, families...)

* The opportunity to contribute to a culture that combines performance, ambition and well-being. A culture so strong that our A-players would never consider working anywhere else.

Smily is also...

* A team always in great spirits taking on a global market populated by dinosaurs 🦖🦕or uninspired companies that are just there to take advantage of a market opportunity

* Waking up in the morning with the feeling that you're making millions of people's lives better and helping them achieve their dreams

* The ability to work from wherever you want (by the pool, in the woods or on your stand-up desk)

* A remote culture from day one: we're always experimenting with new ways to make telecommuting as warm and cool as possible. For example, some people challenge themselves to do sports or meditation

* A growing company, synonymous with development opportunities!

* Currently we are 50/50 male female and we aspire to be a balanced, inclusive team.

* Flexible locations: you're encouraged to work from wherever inspires and suits you best. Whether it's to enjoy the best kitesurfing spots 🪁🏄♀️ or spend more time with your family

* Flexible hours: what's important to us is the value you bring much more than the time you work - even if you will be required to maintain moments of sharing and communication with the team ;)

* Your own boss: we are partners and work as equals. Our relationship does not work out of a sense of obligation but out of a common will and effort to strengthen it on a daily basis

But this may not be for you...

As you can see, we don't want people who are just looking for a "job”. We are inspired by a culture of performance and ambition.

We want to do what very few companies have the courage to do, we want to create the exceptional and impact the maximum number of lives.

For this reason, some people imagine that they will work in an easy environment without any pressure.

But we have a very startup-oriented culture where everything is fast-paced and there is a lot of change. Where you are not always told exactly what to do or how to do it.

We tell each other things, even if they are uncomfortable, we prefer growth to ego comfort; we like to share clear and honest feedback. In our company, expressing disagreement and knowing how to argue is valued!

We encourage critical and strategic thinking. We question our assumptions, we're mindful of our biases, and we seek to put our energy where the leverage is greatest.

Do you experience criticism as a personal attack? Are you ready to receive regular feedback to allow yourself to progress? To take it well? To give it to others? Or even to give it to yourself?

We realize that this is not for everyone.

If all this resonates with you, then we'll love working with you (and you with us, you'll be pampered!), come write the next chapter with us.
