Description

What is Current?

Our mission as a company is to enable budget-conscious consumers to earn additional passive income from their everyday habits.

Current Mobile Inc is a US-based company that builds mobile technology products for budget-conscious consumers. Our products let people around the world earn passive income while using their mobile phones for daily habits like music, games, news, shopping, browsing, charging, and even unlocking their device. Our passionate team of innovation leaders relentlessly convert user attention and data into rewards.

Our flagship products, Current Rewards, and Mode Smartphone are hugely popular with millions of users around the world. It is our goal to provide a free Mode phone to every income-conscious consumer on the planet, enabling them to earn up to $100 each month while passively using their device. Our common purpose is to bring financial joy to the lives of our user base.

In 2018, Current became the first company to raise over $36M through an SEC-registered security token offering, to implement our royalty-paying token $CRNC across company product lines. We are rapidly growing. In the last 12 months, we have grown 25% month over month. As we embark on the next phase of our incredible expansion, we are looking for exceptional talent to help fuel the growth.

How we work:

Current is committed to learning, exploring new ideas & alternatives, and is united by curiosity. We are results-driven, use OKRs to guide us on our decisions, and emphasize goal accomplishment.

We put emphasis on the following Values:

  • Lead with Purpose

Leadership does not necessarily mean management. Everyone is a leader, no matter the role. Taking pride in your responsibilities, finding & executing solutions is key.

  • Focus on the ‘Why’

The best solutions start with everyone understanding the problem and its impact. We’ve found that if someone understands the ‘why’, they will produce an innovative ‘what’ and ‘how’. If we cannot explain the ‘why’ clearly, we don’t understand the problem ourselves.

  • Bring a Sense of Humor

Our work environment is a lighthearted & positive place where employees are united by humor and camaraderie; we believe laughter is a great way to uplift employee morale and form bonds with each other.

  • Set New Precedents

We drive innovation and push boundaries for all company activities while understanding that anything worth doing will have roadblocks. We set a new standard of worth for people’s time, data, and attention while rewarding what most other companies take.

  • Collaboration

We won’t thrive without recognizing others strengths. Listen and evolve together, helping and supporting each other for the sake of a collective goal.

We believe in the following workplace Norms:

  • Honor Commitments, Your Word Matters

Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant & Timely (S.M.A.R.T) Asks & Answers

  • Allow OKRs To Guide Us

Individual & Departmental OKRs will largely impact success at Current

  • Agree to Disagree & Commit

Voice concerns in a respectful & appropriate manner directly to your manager or the Executive Team

  • Assume Positive Intent

Always start from the idea that a person meant well or was doing their best, no matter what they say or do

We are looking for a leader to not only shape, but build the strategic finance function of Current as we embark on the next phase of our incredible growth.
