Titan

< 10 Employees
< 10 Engineers
$2M - $5M Funding
Pre-Series A

What Robinhood did to trading, we're doing to asset management. We build, manage, and explain financial products. You can think of our first product as a hedge fund manager in your pocket. We just came out of YCombinator ($2.5M seed round from Sam Altman, Coatue, Joe Montana, Yuri Milner) and are looking to expand the squad to keep up with growth. We have 6,000 users and $35M of assets in a year, which puts us as one of the fastest growing digital asset managers ever.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Crazy growth. We were ranked #4 in the US in terms of hottest fintech companies (behind Robinhood, Betterment; ahead of Square, Stripe). Got a bunch of press coverage (TechCrunch/Bloomberg) as we are one of the fastest digital robo advisors ever to $30M of assets.

  • Awesome investors. Just came out of YCombinator with a $2.5M seed round from Paul Graham & Sam Altman (personally), Coatue, Joe Montana, Yuri Milner, BoxGroup, others

  • You would be engineer #3. Rare opportunity to join at the ground-floor, get ownership that reflects that, and build the foundational bricks of Titan.

  • A+ team. Our founders are all Stanford / Penn alumni. We have a fantastic squad (7 people). Team lunches on Friday's, full-team product brainstorms. We focus on ideating rigorously, shipping fast, and having fun while doing so.

  • Inspiring mission. We're building the next trillion-dollar asset manager for an entire generation. We truly love coming to work each day.


Engineering at Titan
Engineering team and processes

We operate in weekly sprint cycles with the full team. As one of the first members of the engineering team (engineer #3), you'll be responsible for pretty much everything, including building new products. Given we're an early stage start-up, that means you won't just own large portions of the code base, but you'll ideate on fresh ideas to be put into action.

Example: 1) You'll participate in a full-team brainstorm on solving a problem, like how we educate new investors during onboarding 2) You'll then work on spec'ing a prospective solution/feature with our UX design lead
3) You'll build v1 of the feature and then ship 4) We'll then review the data with our Analytics lead as a team on whether the feature succeeded 5) Then we talk to users, iterate, and build v2

Technical Challenges

Problem: human beings are terrible traders, in particular millennials. Question: how do we build predictive technology such that our voice is present right when they are about to hit the Sell button at exactly the wrong time?

Projects you might work on
  • Building out our stories-like content consumption (think: Instagram but in a finance app)

  • Launching new financial products like Titan Cash (and others that we can't divulge)

  • Building new features and services like Instant Settlement, Titan Coach, Live Video, enhanced Performance Charts, web research portal
