We're the Robinhood for pre-IPO startups. We allow everyone to invest $100 in a startup they love.
Over the past five years, we've helped fund over 900 startups with $500m – including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures.
We’re now doubling the size of our team to handle the growth. Trying to keep up!
We’re also a public benefit corporation with a mission of saving the American Dream (https://wefunder.com/charter). Our aim is to sprinkle the Silicon Valley fairy dust across the rest of the country, which often don’t have the same opportunities we take for granted.
We allow everyday people to invest in the startups they love!
Wefunder is the largest funding platform connecting founders with their community. Over the past few years, we've helped fund over 900 pre-IPO startups with $450M+, from early-stage moonshots to unicorns.

🗻 This position is based in San Francisco / the Bay Area. You don’t have to commute every day and we value flexibility. Still: We love the opportunity to collaborate in person while we are still a small, ambitious team. Do you live outside of the city but would be willing to move? We are happy to help you relocate!
Engineering at Wefunder
Last year, investment volume on Wefunder quadrupled. Our team grew from 6 to 20 engineers across small, cross-functional pods that each have ownership over a part of the founder & investor journey. We’re a full-stack startup; our goal is to stay lean and flexible. There's no red tape. It's a small team, and we move fast.
Our mission is to make fundraising easy and engaging. For example, we have built our own money management tools to handle $70M investments from 85k transactions and worked out compliance with securities regulations. We are building communityround.com to give fans a platform to petition companies they love and are working on our own version of Mattermark to help identify relevant suggestions from thousands of companies.
This ad goes out to experienced Product Engineers who want to work on a meaningful product and have a lasting positive impact on founders who deserve to take their shot. To those who want to build on their tech and people leadership skills through developing others in a small team.
Skills & Experience
We’re a team of founder types, and pride ourselves on the lack of red tape at Wefunder. 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. Now, we are leading it and ready to scale.
