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.

On May 16, 2016, it became legal for regular people to invest as little as $100 in startups and small businesses. Since then, we have become the largest equity crowdfunding platform. We've helped 170+ startups and small businesses – including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures – raise $55 million.
We're a Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to revitalize capitalism and keep the American dream alive. GDP growth is slowing. Wealth inequality is increasing. Entrepreneurship is dying across America; falling from 10.6% to 3.6% among those under 30 since 1989. We're reversing these trends by funding more deserving businesses across all of America, not solely tech startups in Silicon Valley.
Want to help? Join us! We're a team of founder types: enjoy autonomy, responsibility, the opportunity to learn, and no red tape. Just make it happen.
Wefunder supports three different federal laws that allow startups to raise money legally. To comply with the law, Wefunder Advisors LLC and Wefunder Portal LLC (both owned by Wefunder Inc) also list startups depending on the regulation used.

We are the largest funding portal for Regulation Crowdfunding.
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
