Part of Y Combinator's Summer 21 batch, Repool makes it extremely east and fast to launch and operate hedge funds, like Carta for hedge funds.
We're attacking the legacy fund services space, which is 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 extremely easy to launch and operate hedge funds, like what Angellist has done for venture SPVs/RUVs. To the extent you're familiar, we're a vertical SaaS. tl;dr - the hedge fund space is massive ($20T+ in assets), but launching a hedge fund is really hard, involves a lot of disparate vendors, and is completely incidental to the actual desired outcome (i.e. being an expert in fund backoffice means nothing for your likelihood to succeed). We're making it easy.
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 8 employees split primarily between NYC and SF.
We're hiring for a junior to mid-level CSM with with anywhere from 1-4 years of experience either from (i) a venture backed startup; or (ii) coming from finance, consulting, or similar.
You'll get to own and build processes from the ground up and work closely with sophisticated clients in the financial services space, while being strongly supported by experienced startup veterans.
You'll work closely with Kevin, our CEO and co-founder, who has been a multiple time early-stage startup operator and leader on go-to-market teams, including most recently as Head of Revenue at Vitally, an a16z backed Customer Success platform.
The role will be in-person in NYC only (3-4 days a week in office). We believe that having an in-person presence in the early days is critical for team-building, morale, and culture. This is not a remote-friendly role.
