Wefunder is like "Kickstarter for investing". We've helped fund over 300 startups and small businesses, including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures. Every company we've funded is full of amazing stories.

We're larger than all of our competitors combined, are growing like crazy, and need to add reinforcements to our army! 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:

-Scouting out cool businesses we can help fund
-Telling founders' stories
-Inviting cool founders and investors to our weekly dinners
-Helping our customers
-Handling the Twitter account
-Targeting Facebook ads
-Helping prepare government filings


Compensation
We'll start out at $20/hr. We're also happy to teach and mentor. Give us your best, and we'll give you our best.

Skills & Experience
We're more concerned with your drive and hunger than your experience. We invest in potential. If you are a quick learner and motivated, we'll help teach you.

Here are some skills we think are important:
-Organization and attention to detail. It's important that no balls get dropped when dealing with multiple projects and stakeholders
-Strong people skills. You should have a talent for making people feel instantly comfortable, heard, and understood.
-Independent problem solver. We want someone who's able to tackle difficult problems on their own and proactively looks for new ways to improve.
-Prioritize efficiently.
-Learn quickly. There are tons of details to learn; securities regulations are quite complex and things change fast around here. You must be able to absorb and retain a lot of facts quickly.
-Responsible & accountable. If you say you will do it, you do it.
Bonus points if you have design and/ or writing chops.

Classes & learning

If you can learn something useful, we'll pay for it. Classes don't need to be directly related to your job.

We'll invest in your next company
