We have a hybrid work-culture: partially our team is based out of Bangalore (India) and the rest across different cities, globally. And our clients are based in India, US, UK & Canada.
At Lights Out, we are a bunch of people who before coming together, shared one thing in common – the desire to create amazing experiences (human, tech, brand, product) and passion for innovation. It was the premise of why we started working on brands & products and it remains non-negotiable when we onboard anyone new into the team. We design products to solve real-life problems.
With everyone joining the team, we look for and emulate the following values:
◉ Ownership – Every aspect of what you do, who you are and how you work, needs to emulate the highest levels of ownership. We need you to #BeFuckingResponsible for everything that you do. The buck stops with you.
◉ Passion – We are in the field of design & creativity. Unless there’s passion for what you do, unless there’s every cell in your body which aspires to service a brand or product to perfection, we won’t be able to create great work. And that would defeat the purpose of our existence. So passion for us isn’t something that you bring to the table, it’s the reason why you would join a boutique team like us.
◉ Fairness & Integrity – While working with customers of all types, projects that take days to complete and results that are incomparable to what anyone could have imagined, you will be faced with a plethora of minor challenges, around staying true to yourself. And towards your team. It’s a value that would help you sail through our policies and our culture. It’s what would define who you are. And that’s why we want you in the team. This isn’t a value that you can develop over time, it’s something that you are bred with.
◉ Performance – We focus on the results and not a stickler for processes and structures. We look for high performing individuals who can not only move fast but move together.
It’s easy to write admirable values; it’s harder to live them. But unless you have these, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy your time here at Lights Out.
Benefits & Compensation
Lights Out has a more entrepreneurial mindset that we like to fuel into our team. The base salary for this position, depending on your experience, would be anywhere between $1500 to $4000 per month, based on your experience.
Benefits at Lights Out are all about helping you lead a healthy life outside of work. We believe quality time to focus on work starts with quality time to think, exercise, prepare a meal, be with family & friends, and of course, time to yourself.
We work 5-day work weeks, prefer you don’t schedule too many calls in one day, help you with medical insurance and don’t really have the concept of designated number of leaves. If you want a break, you take a break. Just manage your work, let your coworkers know and there’s no record of such leaves.
In addition, we offer incentives in two parts:
◉ For every new account you win or extend, for the quality of work you’ve done, you get a direct % of the revenue
◉ We also have the policy of team incentives. The whole team takes a percentage of the yearly profits home, after a 1 year cliff in the company
