A note on our culture

We’re building a new kind of company at Seed&Spark. One where you don’t have to check your humanity at the door. We’re cultivating a culture that’s empowering and equally fosters personal and professional growth. A culture that prioritizes getting to the best idea, regardless of where it originated. One that is flexible enough for us to lead rich, creative lives outside of work. One that acknowledges that when you spend this many of your waking hours together, it should feel like family.

  • Provide personalized feedback on crowdfunding projects submitted to Seed&Spark
  • Speak with authority at Education events and represent Seed&Spark as an employee and crowdfunding alumnus
  • Lead the occasional Crowdfunding To Build Independence workshop and others that are developed
  • Provide feedback and development of pitch materials for outreach and education
  • Capture and relay feedback for product and educational teams from our community members
  • Represent Seed&Spark's values in the world, with a deep and public commitment to diversity and inclusion


Preferred skills and experience:
  • Ran a successful crowdfunding campaign, preferably on Seed&Spark
  • Strong copywriting and copyediting skills
  • Strong public speaking skills
  • Teaching/workshop leading experience preferred
  • Strong organizational skills and excellent attention to detail
  • Team player attitude
