About Bolstr:

Bolstr is a Marketplace where accredited investors can discover & invest in exciting local small businesses. Our mission is to create jobs by enabling access to growth capital for an underserved demographic of small business owners.

To do this we have completely broken down the barriers to angel investing, democratizing the opportunity for any accredited investor to become a mini-angel. The minimum investment on Bolstr is just $1,000, allowing investors to support several businesses, and establish a diversified pool of investments in everything from coffee roasters, and pie companies, to gin distilleries and micro breweries.

On Bolstr we’ve crafted a new breed of angel investors (doctors, lawyers, consultants etc.) who can not only access interesting opportunities, but can also support their city or neighborhood’s economy, by investing locally, and earning real financial returns through monthly revenue based payouts.

We are pioneers in the crowdfunding space, having been up and running for over two years, in advance of the JOBS Act. Through regular TV appearances on MSNBC, NBC, and Fox News, and through monthly contributions to Entrepreneur Magazine, our Co-Founders have developed a respected voice in the space that has positioned the company for rapid growth.

What to expect:

At Bolstr, you can expect to be inherently motivated to work hard on a rewarding and fulfilling mission, and leave work everyday with a feeling of accomplishment, and pride that you are really making a difference for others. We’re a lively, goofy, and unusually diverse team, so we guarantee you’ll have a ton of fun along the way!

As the first engineering hire at Bolstr you'll be working along side our CTO to refine our existing code base as well as build out new features for the small businesses and investors that frequent our marketplace. We're also hiring a full time designer/developer to help further the Bolstr brand and unify the user interface and refine user experience of the site. You'll be an integral part of this small team and will be able to push new features to production on day one. We're looking for people that are great at their jobs and enjoy working hard to help move the whole company forward. As a result, we love to promote from within and the person in this position will have amazing career growth opportunities.
