About MainStreet

Every year, billions of dollars are set aside by your local, state, and federal representatives to make it easier for anybody to build a small business and turn their dream into reality.

The issue: governments are great at governing, but terrible at marketing. These billions sit unclaimed, waiting for founders to discover them.

MainStreet is the solution: we’re building a platform that automatically qualifies companies for hundreds of local, state, and federal tax programs and wins them back what they’re owed in minutes, versus the dozens of hours it would otherwise take. The average company gets $51K+.

Your mission – if you choose to accept it – is to help us build and streamline the customer experience of qualifying and claiming these credits, add new API endpoints to support new features, and help us solve the next set of technical challenges we’ll face supporting 200+ credits. We’re growing quickly and are looking for someone to jump in and roll up their sleeves.

We’re backed by top-tier investors, including the founder of Product Hunt, Gradient, a Google Venture Fund, Shrug Capital, Backend Capital, execs at Google and Facebook, and Ron Conway’s fund, SV Angel.

A note on diversity

We try to make sure the diversity of our customers is reflected in the team that serves them. Because when we include people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and identities — we end up building a better experience for everyone who uses MainStreet.

We know we need to be intentional in our hiring practices in order to overcome systemic biases we may be blind to. So, if your lived experience has given you a unique perspective on business, startups, or sales – even if you don’t meet all the requirements – let us know, and we’ll make sure your application gets the attention it deserves.
