SeedInvest is the creator of www.seedinvest.com, the largest venture/startup equity crowdfunding platform in the U.S., and has enabled nearly 500,000 users to access new investment opportunities, successfully funded north of 200 startups, and raised nearly $50M for startups in the first half of 2020 alone. We are in the first innings of having “a few startup shares” in every American’s investment portfolio and believe our growing suite of products will give rise to a new generation of investors and startups.
As a Principal Engineer at SeedInvest, you will be expected to firstly be a phenomenal teammate, as well as a technical leader and mentor to the entire engineering team. You will be expected to help execute upon and eventually drive the design, development, and improvement of our entire suite of products at SeedInvest.
If you are product-minded, interested in building something meaningful, and love to work with startups in a startup environment, we’re excited to hear from you!
Product & Engineering at SeedInvest
The engineering team is also dubbed the product team at SeedInvest; the team’s overarching mission is to build a top-class suite of products and experiences for the new wave of venture capital investors and startups. Our entire engineering team is able to run full-stack across product responsibilities with a core responsibility/emphasis on engineering (tech ops, infrastructure, back-end, front-end) and healthy contributions to product management and design.
We choose the technology we work with based on a combination of near and medium-term pros and cons while looking to design systems for the long-term. While we are therefore generally a technology agnostic team, our core stack currently consists of:
We launch products in bite-size releases and iterate quickly. We balance structured planning and process with flexibility -- we are constantly optimizing for speed and correctness.
What To Expect
As a company, we expect to both double the user base and investments as we look to snowball the growth we saw in 2020. As an engineering team, we expect to rapidly scale the processing of and access to our startup investment opportunities.
While we keep longer-term roadmaps iterative, the following are several products/projects we are exploring for 2021 based on company-wide strategy:
