Why we started Kutuki?


When you walk into a toy store do you see anything Indian?


When you look at children’s content - books, cartoons, rhymes do you see Indian children and families being represented?


Added to that, children’s content today is full of mindless entertainment, violence and no learning 


This is a HUGE problem waiting to be solved. Why, you ask?

80 percent of the brain’s development happens under the age of 7 i.e. the preschool stage. At over 150 million, India is home to the LARGEST population of preschoolers, yet there is no solution customized to suit their learning needs. We are India’s first comprehensive preschool learning app made specifically for Indian children. At Kutuki, we have built a proprietary song and story-based curriculum, which includes animated stories, illustrated books, games and activities across 35+ preschool themes such as foundational English, S.T.E.M, Life Skills, Cognitive Development and much more. We enable children to learn in familiar cultural settings, with characters that look like them, talk like them, and in their own mother tongues which has accelerated learning by 10x. More than 3 million mothers and preschoolers trust Kutuki and we are growing exponentially. We’ve had 120 million minutes of learning in 2021 alone! 


Our characters Kutu, Ki and Minku the haathi have found a place in the hearts of millions of children, as they learn something new with them everyday. We’re at the cusp of building a brand like the Peppa Pig or Dora - The explorer for India and YOU could be part of that story.



Why Join Us


Early learning in India is a nascent, largely untapped market that is witnessing tremendous growth. We are committed to building India’s no.1 Preschooler brand that is synonymous with making learning insanely fun for India’s youngest learners. Kutuki consists of a stellar team of artists, storytellers, musicians, teachers, coders, brand mavericks, working together to achieve this mission.


There is no better time than now to join us on a journey to build, shape and transform learning outcomes for hundreds of millions of Indian children foundationally. 


Our founding team consists of alumni from the London School of Economics, IIT, the Indian School of Business, NID. We’re backed by some of the most respected global investors including Omidyar Network India, Better Capital, AET and First Cheque. 


About the Role


As an inherently creative team, we are crazy about good copy.  


Copy that conveys more with less. 

Copy that makes you laugh away the stress

Copy that’s saved and not swiped  

Copy that is free of BS. Honest, Uncomplicated and Relatable. 


Guess who needs this the most? Parents of preschoolers of course who need all the help they can get while juggling a thousand things and trying to make the right choices for their little human.


We’re looking for a creative wordsmith who through our social media channels and product communication is able to entertain, empathize, empower and inform mothers across India through funny, quirky, locally relevant, intriguing content around various aspects of child development, early learning and parenting. Like Zomato and Dunzo, we want to entertain and meaningfully converse with our audience using marketing.

This individual will work closely with the Co-Founder on the strategy and management of our social media handles.


The role also requires being involved in Employer Branding related content strategy.


The Role


  • This is a high ownership role where you are the custodian of our brand’s voice.
  • Understand our audience, a day in their life and their pain points to come up with content ideas that are relatable and share worthy 
  • Position our mascots Kutu, Ki and Minku in a way that Indian mothers look at them as positive, relatable role models for their children by showcasing their never ending curiosity, funny quirks and childlike innocence. 
  • Write jargon free copy that evokes a range of feelings - happiness, excitement, nostalgia, frustration, guilt that mothers encounter while raising a little human 
  • Experiment with a range of copy formats on social media for reels, comic strips, memes, stories and newer formats of content that are currently trending
  • Come up with catchy, curiosity inducing Push Notifications, email and ad copy to get our customers excited about new features, content and offerings. 
  • Update product descriptions on our website, Play Store, App Store as and when there’s a business requirement
  • Position Kutuki as a great place to work through copy that highlights our work culture, celebrates the milestones of team members and the company and provides information on job openings
  • Apart from English, experience in writing copy in Hindi/ Hinglish would be a bonus
  • Create a Social Media Calendar
  • Keep all our social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) engaged regularly

Requirements


  • Must have some experience as a content creator 
  • Must be someone who is active on social media and is aware of current trends
  • 1-2 years work experience as a Copywriter writing short and long form copy is preferred 
  • Extremely proficient in spoken and written English
