About 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. While we don’t follow agile/scrum exactly, we take tenants and stay flexible in our approach to work.
Representative Projects on the Roadmap
While we keep longer-term roadmaps iterative, the following are several products/projects we are exploring in 2021 based on company-wide strategy:
While we are looking to continue to build the team in Manhattan, New York, the entire SeedInvest team is currently working from home and we are open to the idea of ongoing support for remote work. Please let us know if remote work is a requirement for you!
Love SeedInvest -- SeedInvest is a mission-focused organization. Everyone on the team is driven to help entrepreneurs and democratize venture capital. While we don't expect people to "Love SeedInvest" day 1, we hope for every new team member to eventually get there.
Act like an owner -- no job is beneath us. We roll up our sleeves, own mistakes, and are better for them. We optimize for the company, the team, then ourselves in that order.
Be committed -- we are results-focused and complete jobs from start to finish, doing whatever it takes. Once we align and commit, we follow through and deliver the outcome promised.
Be biased for action -- and proactively look for opportunities to deliver value, learn, and improve.
We have a host of other supporting values that we keep in mind as we build our team, but generally are excited for people that 1) align with us in our core values and 2) as different as possible from everyone else on the team from there.
