Wefunder's mission is to keep the American dream alive. We've helped hundreds of founders – ranging from local breweries to flying cars – get the funding they need to start. As we've increased the number of companies we've worked with, we've found it harder to give these founders the attention they deserve. We're looking for someone who looks forward to get up in the morning, every day, to help founders achieve their goals and move their campaigns forward.
Every day, you will get to interact with super motivated people trying to create businesses and improve the world in some specific way. It's often inspiring, and you'll learn a lot about different kinds of businesses. For instance, on trips across the country, we toured a bicycle factory, watched whiskey being made, learned about the economics of cheese farming, saw a drone being assembled, and shared drinks with actors in a live theater production.
Our dream candidate is hyper-organized, resourceful, and truly enjoys helping founders – even when they have silly questions or demands.
Hundreds of founders are currently in the process of launching a fundraising campaign on Wefunder. Setting up a fundraise is a complex operation with lots of details and tasks to track. You will be the main driver of moving each campaign forward. You must be able to prioritize who needs the most help, proactively reach out to offer guidance, and then solve any roadblocks.
But most importantly, you should always have empathy for the founders you speak with. This is often the most important thing going in their entire lives – a make or break moment for their company. If you get a panicked call at 8pm for a problem that at first blush seems a little insignificant, that's why. Your job is to put them at ease – you've got them covered.
You are the first call founder's make when they have a question or issue. You also proactively reach out when it looks like they could use some extra help. You are responsible for making sure founders are not just satisfied, but ecstatic. Founders are our most important evangelists, so making sure they have a great experience is paramount.
We're more concerned with your drive and hunger than your experience. We invest in potential. If you are a quick learner and super-motivated, we'll help teach you.
Here are some skills we think are important:
