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.
The team currently has 7 employees split between NYC and SF.
We're hiring for a business development lead to work across all things customer-facing, with a particular empasis on bringing on new clients and helping them become successful post-sale. Ideally, this person comes from a finance or fintech background with experience in customer facing roles like investor relations, banking, fundraising, or client services; or in front or middle office roles such as trading, venture capital, or investment banking.
You'll own and run deals end-to-end, working directly with potential fund managers ranging from first-time retail investors to established fund managers launching new SPVs. To be successful, you'll learn complex regulatory and legal frameworks and be capable of applying them dynamically on calls based on each fund manager's unique facts and circumstances.
The role will be hybrid WFH/in-person. We believe that having an in-person presence in the early days is critical for team-building, morale, and culture.

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.
