Explore open positions

Our community is growing fast (4X YOY on revenues, 50k users, doubled in the last 6 months), we’re proud about what we have done so far, excited about where we're heading, and we want to share the helm with people eager to to help us building the vessel to conquer new, undiscovered lands.

Our dream is to make sailing experiences accessible to anyone, enabling the sharing of unique experiences among people from all over the world.

We have made unforgettable thousands of sailing holidays. Now we need you to climb the highest mountain

Our route is driven by a clear vision and great passion: that is why we are not just looking for talented people but we need them to share our same passion. They are adventure lovers and full of smart ideas, ready to share them in in the office as well as on a sailboat while having a beer.
We are informal and spontaneous, professional but without forgetting to wear our best smile, target oriented but respectful of the human dimension: hard workers in the office, fair players in everyday life.

Our benefits will make you much more smiling and tanned than all of your friends

  • Go sailing…pretending to be working.
  • Young, positive and casual environment.
  • Stock option plan available.
  • Human and flexible working hours.
  • Join the sailsquare "core" team.
  • Join a startup in its most dynamic phase.

We are based in Milan and we fairly mix work and fun. But as soon as we can, we get on board to sail away.

We prefer flip-flops to ties and our offices reflect the Sailsquare personality: brightness, comfort and uniqueness! All of this a few steps away from the tube.

We are now looking for:
