San Francisco, CA, United States
Employment: Full Time Experience: Mid-Level

OpenInvest is a Y Combinator-backed startup offering the world's first Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) platform for retail investors. Our mission is to democratize capital. We use technology to bring more transparency and honesty to financial services, helping people ensure their investments truly reflect their personal values and drive positive social change.

Our team of senior technologists from the hedge fund industry and civil society is mainstreaming ethical finance by making it easy, personalized, and social. Divest-invest with a swipe, vote shareholder resolutions, participate in mass campaigns, measure your impact, and claim the power that is rightfully yours in public markets.

Through our values and technology, we plan to create the next great disruption in finance. We are a seed-stage company and Public Benefit Corporation, supported by some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley.


As a core technical hire, you'll work with and report to our CTO. You’ll provide guidance and support in crafting, improving and implementing our technology stack. You’re the kind of person who cares deeply about and understands what it takes to cultivate a healthy engineering culture. You can delegate to teammates as needed, and aren't afraid to reach out for advice. You are collaborative and committed to building relationships with your peers and reports. We’d like you to be comfortable with full stack experience (you handle both front and back end issues flexibly and with ease). You're passionate about inventing new solutions to problems, and you have experience being on call in case something happens (which it will). Your work will impact the next iteration of our product and how we achieve our mission of responsible, transparent and ethical investing.
