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.
Come join us! Or, at least, think about joining us :)
Repool makes it easy to launch and operate a hedge fund with our fund-in-a-box and standalone fund administration platform. We're modernizing the alternative assets infrastructure space, which has more than $10T in assets deployed growing to over $30T over the next 20 years. It's an incredible intersection of being intellectually interesting and challenging, filled with extremely sophisticated operators, and yet devoid of modern software.
Founded in 2021, Repool is a Y Combinator S21 alum 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 primarily between NYC and SF.
We're hiring for a front-end, full-stack, or back-end engineer to join the team (currently 3 engineers).
You'll own large portions of product and help to build out a dream team of engineers and culture. Our ideal candidate is entrepreneurial and wants to ship a lot of features, gain exposure to many areas of the business, and meaningfully impact the direction of the product.
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.
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:

Foremost, we are indifferent to whether or not you have direct, prior experience with our stack! But we do use:
1: Introductory chat (30 min) 2. Technical assessment (1 hour) 3. Systems design assessment (45 min) 4. Behavioral interview (45 min) 5. Meet the team (1 hour)
