About the role

Beacons is creating new economic opportunities for creators.

We believe that the future of work is going to see more people constructing a career that they really enjoy around who they are online — and creators are the first wave. If you’re excited for this future and want to help us get there sooner, please get in touch!


We recently raised a $6m seed round led by a16z and with participation from Li Jin, Naval Ravikant, The Chainsmokers, Night Media, and a bunch of other great investors — see the TechCrunch article here or our own blog post.
