Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Mission driven. We're looking to help people invest in values they care about, supporting the companies that are driving social change (and defunding those that stand in it's way). We do that while helping people invest in their own financial future. We believe our product has the potential to make a real difference. Join a small, passionate team that is moving fast to change things for the better.

  • Experienced founding team and investors. Our technology co-founders are experts in the financial field. Our CTO previously co-founded Deliveroo, a startup now valued at over $2 billion. We're funded by Y-Combinator, Andreesen Horowitz and QED.

  • Tremendous business growth. We're currently managing the investments of an Australian superannuation fund, in a pilot with a large European bank and expand our sales into institutions all over the US.


Engineering at OpenInvest
Engineering team and processes

We meet on a daily basis to sync our efforts and make sure we keep our priorities on track. We're still small enough to enjoy collaboration on all parts of our technology, and we value teamwork.

We've used trello but are considering moving to Jira and Confluence.

Technical Challenges

Working on the core trading algorithms is an interesting challenge. Our back-end is written in Python and our front end in React as well as React-Native. We use GraphQL for middleware.

Product challenges - adding new features, and we continue to have a lot of UX/UI challenges as new features are launched. We're looking for people to take ownership of these product decisions and launches.

Projects you might work on
  • Financial analytics dashboard - a React app that demonstrates to customers a real-time analysis of their portfolio; returns, social impact, relative indicators versus benchmark

Through transparency, we can ensure that OpenInvest’s growth is always based on true value creation.

Free Food

We offer free lunch, breakfast foods, coffee and other drinks, snacks, and at times homemade kombucha. We love a good bakery order on Friday mornings.

Pet Friendly

We love dogs. We love cats too, but they're not so great at not lying on top of keyboards/knocking over your coffee mug.

Flexible Hours

We tend to work from 10am to 6pm, but we are flexible about when you'd like to come in and when you'd like to head home!

Health Insurance

We offer full medical, dental and vision, through both Anthem Blue Cross and Kaiser.

Gym/Fitness

OpenInvest is committed to providing healthy options for those with dietary restrictions. There is a small gym in our building.

Maternal/Paternal Leave

From happy hours to mini golf outings to after-lunch rounds of bananagrams, we're always looking for new ways to help team members grow and maintain connections.
