About the role

Well met! We're a profitable and well-capitalized API / dev tools company funded by Y Combinator, top-tier VCs, and angel investors (including members of the so-called "PayPal Mafia") who are looking for people to join our GTM team (Sales and Growth roles)


You have only one primary responsibility: Grow ("directly" - in the case of sales, or "indirectly" - in the case of growth) our top line predictably and sustainably. That's it!

Okay, so there are, of course, some secondary responsibilities, but their importance pales in comparison to the primary responsibility, that it's barely even worth mentioning in the same breath.

Being successful in this role will require a sense of ownership, hustle, creativity, thinking on your feet, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. You will need to have excellent communication skills and a fair bit of salesmanship to engender trust and rapport with potential customers.

Minimum Qualifications

❚ Execution-oriented: We need people who get stuff done. Period. In General von Hammerstein-Equord's 2x2 matrix of the 4 types of military officers, we are looking for those who squarely fit in the "clever" and "industrious" quadrant (please look it up on ChatGPT if this is unfamiliar to you)

❚ High conscientiousness: You are very organized, have a high attention-to-detail, and are highly responsive to the needs of both internal and external stakeholders. Being a self-starter with solid time management skills are prerequisites to being successful in this role

❚ Low ego: There can be significant economic upside to this role as things progress, but the nature of this role day-to-day may involve things that can be less exciting / more mundane (it's a job, after all!)

❚ Outstanding references: That speak to your work ethic, honesty, integrity, and kindness.

Other Requirements:

❚ In order to be considered for this position you must be legally authorized to work in the US. We are unable to offer sponsorship, including STEM-OPT and H-1B.

❚ As this is an in-person position at our Cambridge office, candidates must be located in the greater Boston area and must be able to commute to our office.

If this sounds interesting to you, please reach out to our anonymized careers inbox careers [at] alphavantage [dot] co with your resume. Please include your undergrad GPA and your SAT scores (other standardized tests such as GRE, GMAT, etc. are acceptable in lieu of SAT scores) even if you are several years or even decades removed from undergrad. We do not have any cut-offs for either metric, but note that failure to provide these will disqualify your application from further consideration. Please note that we will also rely significantly on both solicited references (where you introduce us) as well as unsolicited or "back-end" references (where we do our own). For the latter, please rest assured that we will never contact a current employer without first getting your permission.

If you made it this far, thank you for taking the time to read this. Please reach out to us at careers [at] alphavantage [dot] co (Note: We will not respond to messages sent to other email addresses, LinkedIn, etc.) if this sounds interesting and have a wonderful day!
