Wefunder led the charge to pass the legislation that legalized equity-based crowfunding. That was the easy part. Now, we have to JFDI... and you can help us.
We offer all the typical perks: competitive salaries, gobs of stock options, all the junk food you can eat, and a swanky office spaces in Boston and SF.
But more importantly, we are offering an opportunity to take part in a truly ambitious mission: democratizing early stage investing, directing more capital to deserving new businesses, and increasing the odds that startups will succeed. This is important stuff. Be sure to read about our vision and guiding principles.
We offer significant autonomy, responsibility and ownership. Really - we're going to throw you in the fire. No one has done this before, and we're going to learn together.
Good design is incredibly important to us. We believe beautiful software is the sum of thousands of small details, done just right.
We want someone obsessed with nailing those details. Someone that will not only "make it pretty", but who will take the time to understand our customers, and then solve their problems with solutions that are beautiful and functional.
You will help guard the "soul" of our product. It's an important job.
Some requirements and responsibilities:
Interview in Hawaii!
We're a close-knit team, and we're hiring someone that will "join the family", so to speak. So, we're going to do things a bit differently. We'll fly out one final candidate to "interview" in Hawaii over a long weekend. We'll pay your normal consulting rates, and we'll work together on a short-term design project near the beach. If it's a good fit, a full-time job will follow, based in SF (we'll help relocate if needed).
While we're 'interviewing' in Hawaii, let's do a short-term contract paid at your normal consulting rate. If we click, we'll talk about the full-time position, at a competitive salary and stock. Plus, act now, and get a snazzy, special edition Wefunder t-shirt!
We have a hard time saying "growth hacker" with a straight face; we're not quite used to the latest Silicon Valley buzzword. But, at the end of the day, that's the most concise way of saying "we're looking for a marketing manager that can code".
We're focused on driving new accredited investors to sign up for Wefunder, so startups get more funding. It's a brand new world: for the first time in 80 years, companies can advertise their fundraising efforts to the general public.
We're looking for a self-directed marketing brain that can come up with new ideas to drive investor acquisition, and then have the skills to execute them single-handedly. The ideal person can ‘scale up' to manage a marketing team as Wefunder grows, yet, particularly in these early stages, get their hands dirty with the actual work.
You should have enough HTML and Ruby on Rails experience to be self-sufficient as a marketer. You'll be expected to do things like commit to git, deploy to Heroku, modify basic html, create landing pages, and run simple database queries.

We're creating a new breed of mini-angel investors… and we’d like to help them learn about startup investing. These folks don’t live in the Silicon Valley bubble – they might be from Kansas and have no idea who Paul Graham or Ron Conway are.
We don’t want tutorials or “Startup Investing for Dummies”. Instead, we want to educate with real-world stories… by interviewing founders and professional investors that have been in the trenches.
We put 'journalist' in quotes because this is truly not a journalism role – we don’t care about breaking the news. But our dream candidate is a journalist at heart, and can interview top angel investors, venture capitalists, and startup founders, know the right questions to ask, and then can make the story simple and accessible.
We're imagining a series of multimedia articles – published twice a week – that teaches a lesson by telling a story from the viewpoints of all the participants. For instance, if we want to explain how angel investors earn a return when a company is acquired, we’d like to pick a real-world example to walk through the process.
Mad brownie points if you can record a video interview AND craft a good story.
$25/hr part-time. $45k full-time salary.
There is a LOT to learn. Startups have not been funded this way in over 80 years. That's before the Internet!
There is also a lot to DO. Some of the work isn't too fun: it's not all rainbows and bunnies. But we'll make sure we mix in enough creative and/or intellectually engaging work to keep you on your toes.
Some things you could be doing.
Compensation. We'll start out at $20/hr. We're also happy to teach you. Give us your best, and we'll give you our best.
