Making hedge funds easy to create and join. For everyone.
Repool makes it easy to create and join hedge funds for everyone. We're modernizing an antiquated, fractured space and democratizing access to investment management for talented retail traders and traditional emerging managers alike.
Founded in 2021, Repool is a Y Combinator S21 fintech with $3.7M seed round from firms like Canaan, Matrix, and Global Founders Capital, as well as angel investors including founders from unicorns like Brex, Jeeves, Mercury, Flexport, Outschool, Pilot, and Forge, and VPs from Goldman Sachs, Barclays, and Bank of America.
We're currently 7 employees split between NYC and SF.
We're looking for a talented writer to join our content and marketing team. You'll be responsible for writing high-quality, thoughtful, and engaging content for Repool's 'regular' blog and our market commentary site. We aim to provide entertaining content (think the readability and engagement of viral content on WallStreetBets, but more proefssional) with insights and quality not commonly available to the regular public (i.e. we think Seeking Alpha, MarketWatch, etc produce very mediocre content).
You'll work closely with Jess, who spent 8 years at Goldman Sachs as a trader, most recently on the IG Credit desk, and Clair, our VP of Marketing.
This role is ideal for someone early to mid-career with a passion for investing and finance, deep research, and high intellectual horsepower. Pay and equity relative to the content writing space will be extremely competitive.
WHAT YOU'LL DO HERE
THE RIGHT CANDIDATE WILL HAVE:
NICE TO HAVES:
Despite being a very early stage startup, you'll find that we provide benefits better than most companies our stage. We don't want joining early to mean critical concessions in security or your well being. Consequently, we're proud to offer:
WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO US:
Part of Y Combinator's Summer 21 batch, Repool makes it easy to create and join hedge funds for both talented retail investors and traditional emerging managers.
We're attacking the legacy fund services space, which is already a multi-dozen-billion dollar industry, yet comprised almost entirely by antiquated, manual-workflow heavy incumbents with human-capital intensive workflow. There's an immense opportunity for disruption as a true first-mover (see Angellist's $4B valuation doing something very similar with venture) that's incredibly exciting, and investors agree - just two months after being founded, we raised $3.7M in our Seed round from top investors like Canaan, Matrix, and Global Founders Capital, with angel investors like the founders of Brex, Mercury, Jeeves, and Forge.
Repool is an extremely transparent company with a focus on making sure we provide a transformative career experience for our employees - regardless of our own growth trajectory. We care deeply about avoiding common startup pitfalls and building a strong, reasonable, and formidable culture that helps employees with their next step, whether that be in 2 years or 10 years, and whether that be as a manager or IC. We also think that we are - given the space we're in - taking on some truly novel fintech and regtech challenges that are intellectually interesting no matter where you sit in the org.
At Repool, you'll closely with two founders who have robust prior operating experience at extremely successful growth startups. Justin was a senior and early engineer at Brex, where he was known for being an exceptional project manager and particularly strong at solving complex regulatory challenges via engineering. Kevin was the Head of Revenue and employee #4 at Vitally, where he lead the team to a Series A from a16z.
