Why you should join Convictional

Convictional is a Y Combinator-backed start-up building an industry-leading solution for B2B trade. We exist to make trade easier for buyers and their suppliers in B2B transactions by automating the traditionally labour-intensive B2B process.

Our team is entrepreneurial, with a bias for action. We never back down from a spirited debate and believe we are all responsible for exploring the hard questions. We value self-awareness and meaningful impact. We are open to unconventional approaches, and have learned not to judge a book by it’s cover.

Your time is your most valuable resource, so you set your hours. We do not use chat and default to zero meetings. We document everything. We expect you to go to coaching or therapy at least occasionally and adhere to 10% compound time.
