Why work at Foundry.ai?
Working at Foundry.ai is Different.
Team members have the opportunity to work on a variety of companies, industries and topics, rather than remaining focused on a single company and function. All employees participate in the ideation and vetting processes as we collectively determine what companies to build next. And if one of the companies we build is particularly interesting to a team member, they always have the option to spin out with that entity.
We are committed to building careers, not jobs. That means that developers can learn the capital funding process, and data scientists can learn B2B marketing. We want to help develop well-rounded business leaders – some of whom will use these skills within a technical domain, and others of whom will become company founders and general managers.
Beyond competitive cash compensation, equity participation is across all the companies on which a team member works, effectively creating a portfolio of equity for each team member rather than the binary risk associated with an individual startup.
WHO WE WANT
We look for problem solvers with a history of demonstrated excellence. But being great at your function isn’t enough. In a typical week, you might write and test code, conceptualize a pricing strategy, and model AWS cost structures to figure out how to make a SaaS offer profitable. As a result, our interview process is both tech skill and case-study based.
We are seeking a full-stack developer, who will wear many hats. Some key challenges will include:
THE SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATE
A successful candidate will have at least several years of professional development experience, and be comfortable in a fluid, entrepreneurial environment. He or she will likely have many of the following characteristics:
Very strong CS degree from leading program
Extremely high SAT or similar standardized test scores
