About Passionfroot

Passionfroot is a no-code tool for creators, solopreneurs and small media companies that helps to sell products and services, save time and run a business - all in one place.

Our mission is to empower the independent businesses of tomorrow and enable people to work on their own terms.

Right now, the life as a creator is exhausting. They need to create and edit content, build their brand, engage with their community, find sponsors, track their finances...all without adequate tools to support them. We are here to build Passionfroot, a tool that will empower creators to build scalable, sustainable businesses.

We are an early stage start-up and raised funding from a top tier VC and amazing founders, angels and creators. This is a rare chance to join a purpose-driven company and shape the product, design and company culture as our Founding Product Designer.
