Building a Stellar Profile
How to position your A.Team profile to land a mission faster
Want to stand out to companies, dazzle our Formation Team, and raise your chances of being selected for a mission? Easy. It all starts with your profile.
You may be asking yourself, "how is this profile different from LinkedIn?" The short answer: everything. LinkedIn is more like a resume — and it's based on traditional work relationships and titles. Your A.Team profile, on the other hand, is part of the secret sauce for matching you with missions you're most into, and teaming you up with people you like working with.
Here are the steps to creating a complete builder profile:
Step 1: About Me
This is your personal and professional intro. Tell us about yourself, your strengths, 1-2 specific achievements you’re proud of, and a unique hobby of yours. This section should be 3-4 sentences maximum.
Don’t forget to write about your interests: Part of what helps us form the best teams, repeatedly, is matching A.Team builders with missions they're actually interested in.
Step 2: Project cards
Project cards transform your experiences into a premium showcase of past work. They help us better connect you with exciting missions and talented teammates. Projects are about what you've built, less about where you worked or what your title was! If you worked at Amazon, break down your projects by the products and features you worked on and your impact on them. If you worked at an agency, tell us what you built for clients.
To create a new project card, head to your profile and click ‘Add Project’. To edit an existing project card, click ‘Edit Project’. From there, fill in all of the relevant details.
To complete a project card, you’ll need to add:
- Company Name
- Company Logo
- Skills or tech stacks you used
- A quick description of the project
- Collaborators if you have any
Step 3: Roles and skills
Choose your main role plus any additional roles.
Add your top skills, and rate your proficiency for each from 1 to 5.
Our AI model will recommend specific missions based on the role and skillset you include in your profile — so make sure it accurately represents your domain.
As you gain deeper mastery over your current skills — and add new ones — keep your profile updated. You can always click “Edit” on your profile, and adjust your skills (and proficiencies) accordingly.
Step 4: Location and hours
Set your location to where you’re based. If you’re a nomad, set it to your country of tax residency.
Your default timezone is linked with your location. You can change this to reflect whatever time zone you’re working in.
Choose the hours you’re available to work on a mission. Working hours are used to calculate timezone overlap with potential missions. They may impact your mission compatibility with companies that set a mandatory timezone overlap.
Step 5: Availability
Set the date when you’ll be available to start building, and how many hours you’re available per week. Mission commitments are usually between 30-40 hours per week.
Step 6: Jobs
Add all the companies you’ve worked with. Include seniority, industry, and specific expertise — especially if it’s niche.
Step 7: Resume
To upload your resume, click the plus button located on the left-hand side of your profile. Having a resume allows companies to quickly get a high-level summary of your skills and experience.
That’s everything you need in order to build a head-turning A.Team profile. Ready to create yours? Click ‘Edit’ on the top right corner of your profile page.
