Why Wefunder

Note: This position is based in San Francisco.

We’re a team of founder types. Your potential matters more than your background or experience; we’re the company where you can take your shot. Everyone is here to learn and grow, to work on a meaningful product, and to fix capitalism. We’ve spent years lobbying congress to fix the law, and in turn, created this industry.

  • 💰 Salary Range: $75k - $90k
  • 🚀 Generous stock options package.
  • 🏝 Unlimited vacation days with no less than 3 weeks off.
  • 🚞 All-expense-paid Wefunder vacation once a year.
  • 😷 Medical, dental, & vision insurance.
  • 💻 Apple equipment. Whatever you want.
  • 🧇 Lots of free food and drinks. That includes daily lunch and weekly team dinners.
  • 📚 Classes & conferences. If you can learn something useful, we'll pay for it.

Your Role

Manage a Community Round. Work one on one with founders to help them raise money. You’ll work with companies at every stage, across all types of industries, raising anything from a pre-seed round to a Series B. You’re the nerve center that makes the rest of the body work; coordinate with the founder and their team, the internal Wefunder marketing team, and external partners to ensure the Community Round is a success.

Source paying clients. Work with the Business Development team to find and onboard founders looking to do a Community Round. You’re selling a service, but you’re also selling your own competence and expertise - you need to be able to convince the people around you of your ability to execute.

Be a creative marketing genius. ****The traditional marketing playbook doesn't always work for Community Rounds. You’re the evil genius behind QR codes on physical products, fliers to put in shipping boxes, webinars with interesting speakers, and so much more.

Manage multiple fundraises at once. You’ll juggle multiple campaigns at once. That means ruthlessly prioritizing your to-do list, and being flexible enough to change it on the fly. Founders will come to rely on you as much as someone on their own team.

Skills & Experience

  • Strong people skills. You’ll be working with founders and their team. You’re empathetic and opinionated. You’re creative in finding solutions, and think like a founder.
  • Honest and good communicator. You should have a talent for making people feel comfortable so you can tell them the truth which can be different from what they believe. You are an excellent writer championing engaging and authentic writing.
  • You have incredible organizational skills. You can stay on top of managing internal operations, calls, and debugging all while make sure that balls do not get dropped when dealing with multiple stakeholders.
  • Creative. You will need to come up with different ways to sell a myriad of products and services from SAAS to bakeries. You have a good eye for visual storytelling. We think stories have more emotional impact if they are designed well.
  • You’re extremely accountable and reliable. If you say you’ll do something, you’ll get it done.

*If you feel like you don't meet all of the points above, but love this role, we encourage you to apply anyways. We don't want a confidence gap and imposter syndrome to get in the way of meeting incredible candidates.*🦄
