Hello lovely people, we are a team of three, two Germans and an Irish one, working on a living and working society space for Digital Nomads coming to stay in Malta (programmers, coders, writers, any remote workers)
So we have a building in the beautiful town of Birgu, it's an awesome space and already fairly close to being ready to go!
What we need is someone to help with setting up what's left: it's going to be a fair bit of building and moving stuff style work, some designy stuff and a lot of standing around and working out how we will do things (I'm trying to minimise that part)
We have a few things that are fairly big projects that could really use an extra two sets of hands - first we are trying to put a new door though a really thick wall, I have some ideas how this might work (I'm a very DIY orientated guy) and the mian project I guess are the 'thought pods'
'What are thought pods?' I hear you ask! Well sometimes we might call them 'Nomad Nests' and they are basically little treehouse style boxes that are up on four legs (6 foot plus high) that a person can climb up into, sit on a beanbag and work in peace up and away from the courtyard. Sound difficult to make? They might be - but it'll be fun.
Soooooooo I (Clem the Irish one) also run a little long-stay/sometimes hostel style house about 10 minutes waterfront walk away from the house, giving us options. We can either stay there and take a big comfortable dorm style bed, or if we have room and the beds sorted out, we can stay at the house which we will be working on.
I'm really looking for two people, together or separate, for anywhere up to a few months.
What to expect:
We won't be working on things every day, maybe 5 days of the week for 3 hours (ish)
Clean sheet, freedom and wifi :)
Malta is super cheap, food and drinks are usually just a few euros :)
Friendly and fun people
The chance to get involved in a cool startup
What not to expect:
Payment, workaway is an exchange of help for lodging
Food and drinks aren't included, everyone is on a really varied diet and we figure it's cheap anyway
Life is good, Malta is beautiful, projects are fun - we really look forward to hearing from you.
Help in the house
You would be the third workaway I've had, the other two have been awesome (a guy from Germany and a guy from Denmark). Mostly they were to help with the guesthouse that we may or may not be staying in.
The basic building, helping, moving things and an extra pair of hands is really all we need :)
You don't need to be super experienced but let me know the kind of things you've worked on before and it might help me with knowing who will work well together.
So send me a message, we are all looking forward to seeing you, hopefully soon :)
A bed in one of the rooms, maybe a dorm bed in one of the mixed rooms - we are working it out.
I have a pile of things in my house that are for everyone to use; there is a snorkel and mask with fins, beginner slack-line, practice fire Poi, acoustic guitar, rock climbing harness, board games, cards, island maps and some other stuff.
The house will be a relaxed space, If you break something it's okay and if you lose the key it's fine. We are good people just making the most of a good opportunity and you are super welcome to come and help out.
Please feel at home and get involved in anything, we are looking for someone who is looking for a fun, full experience and chilled holiday.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
If you are interested in the digital nomad/remote workers scene, love new projects, building or startups, then this is for you - join us for festivals and BBQ's with Maltese friends who will be happy to teach you their ways and how the Maltese live. It's really a fascinating country.
It's totally optional but in the summer I run a coastline clean-up every Sunday (in the winter less often) that you can get involved with, where we get together and bring people from lots of other clubs and societies and bag up all the trash that has been left on the coast and in the water. These events are often followed by a BBQ and some slacklining.
Maximum 3 hours a day, 5 days a week
