Job Description: Product Advocate

 

Product Advocate

ThoughtForma Inc

a Nobody Studios company

 

About ThoughtForma

ThoughtForma is carving out the niche of ‘intelligent no-code’ (iNoCode) to compete in a rapidly expanding technology space.

Traditional IT costs too much, takes too long to deliver and requires skills that are in too short supply.

The Low-code/No-code movement has emerged in response to this problem, but existing tools fail to address a critical part of the puzzle – the technical know-how necessary to deliver a successful production-grade digital product.

ThoughtForma is different. The platform delivers a holistic ‘intelligence’-based approach to no-code application development – guiding people across this knowledge gap quickly and easily.

ThoughtForma was introduced to Nobody Studios in the summer of 2021. The synergies were immediate, and the symbiotic relationship was quick to develop. In May 2022, Nobody Studios acquired ThoughtForma – a date that marks the first acquisition for the Studio and solidified a prominent building block in the Studio’s infrastructure.

About Nobody Studios

Nobody Studios is a rebel venture studio building 100 compelling companies in 5 years. 

We believe the venture vehicle has the capacity to create a massive, positive impact in the world – which is why we’re building businesses faster and more efficiently than ever before.

So how do we manage? We do three things differently:

  1. All business ideas are vetted through a process called Frugressive (frugal & aggressive), in which our companies are launched for under $250,000.
  2. Because the Studio owns ~70% of each company, we have the superpowers to kill, pause, merge, or split companies – meaning we don’t waste funds on ideas that aren’t working. 
  3. We are Crowd Infused™, a high-velocity company creation machine that brings together creators, entrepreneurs, and investors to build businesses that shape a more vibrant, human, and equitable future.

And as far as we know, we are the first venture studio to raise capital through equity crowdfunding because we believe in the power of people.

We’re inclusive, collaborative, and focused on collective benefit throughout our community of Nobodies and in every market our companies touch.

Become part of our Crowd of Nobodies and let’s change the world together!
