AngelList is looking for a securities lawyer to help us expand and grow our online fundraising business.
This isn't a normal GC position, as almost all of the work will be related to securities law. We actually think it is more core to AngelList's business than a pure GC.
Not only will you work at the largest online fundraising company in the business... you'll actually help shape the future of securities law.
Why this position is awesome:
* We work with Congress (http://financialservices.house.gov/uploadedfiles/hhrg-114-ba16-wstate-klaws-20160414.pdf) and the SEC (https://techcrunch.com/2013/08/17/sec-fundraising-rules/) to help establish the future of online fundraising.
* Our last securities lawyer is now the founder of AngelList's crowdfunding spin-out site, Republic.
* You'll be working directly with engineers, designers, and an operations / compliance team, most of whom have been former startup founders themselves.
We expect candidates to have:
* A demonstrated passion for securities law.
* 3-10 years of experience working in securities law.
* Law degree from a top school.
* A mindset for operating in vague, new areas of the law.
What you'll do:
* Support engineering and operations team in designing compliant products / policies, specifically (506c/506b distinctions, structuring of investments, generating legal docs).
* Help us stay compliant; interact with regulators.

Help AngelList continue to evolve our server architecture, development environment, and monitoring/alerting tools.
This is the most leveraged position in the entire company—in addition to helping us scale to serve our next ten million users, you’ll help multiply the productivity of every engineer and designer working across all of our products.
What you'll do:
* Work with our engineering team to assess server bottlenecks and plan for future scaling
* Build monitoring and alarm systems to help us find problems early
* Improve site performance in both development and production environments
* Build tools and platforms so great that everyone **wants** to use them, instead of being forced to
* Write and maintain documentation so engineers can debug problems on their own
* Develop long-term solutions for stability and performance that fit our workflows and culture
Ideal candidates have experience with:
* Leveraging AWS at scale, including EC2, RDS, S3, CloudFront, and CloudWatch
* Provisioning high-availability server infrastructure with multiple points of redundancy
* Development tools in our stack such as Docker, Solr, MySQL, Redis, Ubuntu, etc.
* Tools and libraries associated with Ruby—Rails, Rubygems, Bundler, Capistrano, Unicorn, etc.
* Self-management at a previous company (see angel.co/handbook)
* Excellent written and verbal communication
The DevOps team at AngelList currently consists of 1 FT engineer focused on DevOps and 3-4 other product engineers who help out part-time.

We're creating a unique design culture. We don't have PMs. Designers and engineers play the core leadership role in defining the product.
Last year we helped startups raise over $100M. And our recruiting product has become the place to find the best startup jobs and talent in Silicon Valley and NYC.
You'll meet your future co-founders and investors here. Many AngelList employees have started successful startups like epinions, FeedBurner, Octopart, and Mercantila, and AngelList alumni have gone on to found great companies like Instacart and Cover.
We're offering designers the chance to genuinely lead. We're still a small company; we do a lot with ~30 people. You'll have way more impact than at most startups with our reach.
Skilled: Your portfolio demonstrates your ability to design useful and usable user interfaces, and write good copy.
Experienced: You’ve worked at a few good startups (founder, early employee). Experience with notable companies is also good.
Entrepreneurial: You were a founder or have a record of launching projects. You don't mind working weird hours, responding to help tickets, or doing whatever to make this product great for our users.
A coder: Ideally, you can hack the front end and have good knowledge of HTML, CSS, JS.
A problem solver: We’re not interested in artists or decorators. You must be passionate about identifying and solving problems for the startup community.
Tough: You can gracefully take and intelligently handle direct feedback on your ideas and work. You can deal with engineers doing things that you don’t like (and by “deal” we mean you’re OK fixing their messes and educating them without being a jerk).
Qualified: a degree in Design (e.g. interaction, graphic), HCI, CS, or a related field is nice to have, but general intelligence and curiosity are better.
I've attended dozens of Demo Days at 9 different accelerators. But this past Friday was my most comfortable one ever. And I didn't even have to show up. Thirty years ago, every Wall Street firm sent out their own research individually to investors.
Today, we're announcing the unrealized return for all 2013 syndicate investments is 46% IRR and 2.4x net multiple. Learn more. These returns are in the upper top quartile of 2013 VC and PE funds, according to Cambridge Associates, the industry standard for measuring VC returns. These returns are after
Starting today, all syndicate deals will be private. That means deals will only be shown to investors invited by the lead. Leads can also block any investor, to avoid sharing information with competitors. Leads won't be able to share deals with every investor on AngelList anymore, although they can
In March, 2015, I joined Flight VC as Manager of the Israeli Founders Syndicate, the 15th syndicate in the stable of Flight VC's federation of AngelList syndicates headed by Gil Penchina and Shawn Merani.
We often get questions by startups at YC whether they should look to raise funding on AngelList, FundersClub, Wefunder and other "crowdfunding" sites. These sites have evolved -and continue to do so at a rapid pace.
Earlier this week, we sat down with Naval Ravikant, founder of five-year-old AngelList, a popular platform that matches startups with early-stage investors. Three million people, including 50,000 accredited investors, have created profiles on AngelList since its founding, and AngelList now uses that information to pair startups with capital, pair startup employees with employers and, more newly, pair startups with customers.
AngelList, the online platform that matches startups with early-stage investors, has grown by leaps and bounds since its 2010 founding - and so have its ambitions. In fact, the company, which already bills itself as both the biggest seed fund in the world, and the world's largest hiring platform for startups, also aims to become the biggest venture fund in the world in the not-too-distant future.
Inside the Deal is a series where we interview investors and entrepreneurs behind some of the most high-profile, invite-only deals on AngelList. In this interview with Gil Penchina and Shawn Merani at Flight.vc, we go inside their investments in Dollar Shave Club, Cruise and Managed by Q to learn:
When Dollar Shave Club sold to Unilever, investors came out of the woodwork to remind us of their role in the success. In theory you only get one of those per fund, so hey, why not, take that victory lap. It's much rarer for a venture firm to experience three billion-dollar exits in a matter of five months.
Mike Jones was the first investor in Dollar Shave Club, which just sold for a reported $1B to Unilever. AngelList also facilitated a secondary DSC transaction, led by Mike, in 2014. AngelList investors participated through a fund advised by an unaffiliated investment adviser. In this interview with Mike, we go
I am excited to announce that I am advising AngelList, the world's largest marketplace for startup investing and recruiting. I will primarily be responsible for bringing syndicates to India. Syndicates allow experienced technology investors to create a single investment VC fund that raises money from institutions and sophisticated angel investors.
AngelList, the online platform for venture capital, is making a huge impact in the early-stage funding scene in the U.S. - it helped raise over $160 million for startups last year, for one thing - and now it is looking to expand its horizons to India. The U.S.

We have a few announcements for you today.First, CSC Upshot, a new venture capital firm, has raised a $400M fund to invest in startups on AngelList. This is the largest fund dedicated to seed-stage startups, ever.CSC Upshot will primarily invest in syndicates led by experienced angels and VCs.
Naval Ravikant is one of the most respected and successful angel investors in Silicon Valley. He's invested in well over 100 startups, including several "unicorns" that went on to become huge companies like Twitter and Uber. He is also the founding CEO of AngelList, a resource for entrepreneurs and angels to find each other and make deals.
"Desire is a contract you make with yourself to be unhappy until you get what you want." - Naval Ravikant Naval Ravikant (@naval) is the CEO and a co-founder of AngelList. He previously co-founded Epinions, which went public as part of Shopping.com, and Vast.com.
Most people didn't notice last month when a 35-person company in San Francisco called HoneyBook announced a $22 million Series B*. What was unusual about the deal is that nearly all the best-known Silicon Valley VCs competed for it.
