Everybody likes deals and sales, especially during this holiday season. It seems they are everywhere, but it can get overwhelming trying to sort out the ones that are useful for us. Ever wish there was a magical service to do that? Recently, Detangl.Com contacted us. It seems they do exactly that. They intelligently sort through lots of daily deals websites to find the deals that are relevant for us. So when they asked to run a joint promotion with us, we gladly agreed.

We're excited to announce the live beta of Gratitude Point. Head to the sign up page to get going!

When deciding on a name, we chose the word "Point" for its dual meaning. Is "Gratitude Point" a location, a point, where you give thanks? Or is it a kind of brownie points, some abstract (but very real) currency you exchange with others? Both are correct, and you'll find both in our beta release for the Social Network of Grateful and Helpful People.

Gratitude Point is ready for you. More importantly, it's ready for you to explore and give us your feedback. Thank you to everyone for helping us reach this point.

Gratitude Point has multiple part-time positions available in the area of customer recruitment and usability testing for our website. The details are as below.

Recruiting new customers by pitching the website to community, volunteer, and other generic organizations and groups is expected. Lots of meetings with community/group leaders and setting up information tables etc. will be involved.

Website usability testing by observing and interacting with actual customers is expected. Interactions will involve in-person customer surveys and observation of customer behavior on the website. Specific recommendations on improving the website are expected out of such test sessions.

Time Input Expected

10 to 20 hours per week with flexible working hours suitable for customer (and potential customer) interaction.

In-field Work

Usability testing will be done at public places with Internet connectivity such as cafes, university student centers etc.
