QLabs is a tech incubator based in Noho, NY. We’re a small group of hackers who rapidly prototype new technologies every 10 weeks and then test them in the market for long-term potential. Our primary focus is the consumer web and industries ripe for disruption, though we’ve also experimented across a broad spectrum. Our most recent products include Framey, an easy-to-use video recorder, Huntsy, a job organization tool, and When, a private network for families, and are proving an exciting new model for incubating startups.

As we grow the QLabs team, we’re actively expanding our marketing capabilities. We believe that marketing is an essential component of any new tech product, and that the most beautiful apps effortlessly integrate marketing with technology and design from the very beginning. So we’ve created a marketing process that respects its fundamental principles while applying them to the time and resource-constrained realities of the startup world. We’re laser-focused on results, so user growth is a primary driving force of our marketing initiatives.
In order to apply, you must do the following:
- Tell us why you’re great for the job
- Tell us why you’re interested in QLabs and our products
- Send us relevant portfolio pieces, writing samples, and social links (about.me, LinkedIn, etc.)

Your role is to acquire new users for all QLabs products, beginning with Huntsy and subsequently for others as they launch.
You’ll do it via a combination of marketing and biz dev programs, with a laser focus on optimizing conversion rates.

Given that each of our products has only 3 months in market to achieve its goals, you’ll be prudent with your time as you test each initiative, giving it enough time to succeed but not hesitating to scrap it if it doesn’t.
