Community Lead - Startup Enthusiast
We are NFX, one of the largest seed venture firms in the world and one of the fastest growing brands in tech. We are a 50+ person team, creating content & building products for the Founder community. Everything we do is about giving the next-generation of Founders an edge.
Now we’re looking for a community leader to join our Content & Marketing team. This is someone who can be the glue for various tribes in our network, and can attract others into it.
NFX needs someone who eats, sleeps, breathes tech and startup news, right alongside us. As far as Founders and VCs go, you know who the big names are, but you are even more avid about following the up & comers posting on Substack, running Discords, and trying new things. That said, take the word “social media” and put it in the trash. It’s a web 2.0 phrase, and we’re looking for web 3.0 community
This is an unusual job that requires a unique background. If you're the best person in the world for this, you'll find your way to us.
You’re deeply tapped into all-things-tech & startups. You get the Founder mindset, and what motivates them. Maybe you were a Founder yourself, or you plan to start a company in the future.
You’re a people person. You’re not afraid of hopping on a Zoom with a Founder or reporter or Substack writer or fellow VC you’ve never met and learning all about her. You love live events, too, and bringing people together to talk to each other.
You are approachable, honest and empathetic. In this role you will be developing relationships with a lot of people in NFX’s network, and your success will absolutely hinge on your integrity and your empathy for others.
You’re a talented story finder, interviewer, and multi-format content producer, with a focus on social media and creative gatherings.
You have a track record or way to demonstrate your irrational curiosity and knowledge about tech, VC, startups, Web3… You don’t have to show us years of experience or an expensive college degree, but we do need to see where you’re focused and what the byproduct of your focus has been.
You have a low ego. Your goal is to be part of a team that is building an enduring company supporting the next generation of amazing Founders;, not building any one person's brand. You’re not here to get famous just by working with famous people.
You’re entrepreneurial. Meaning: If a job needs to get done, you roll up your sleeves, no matter what.
You’re a learner, not afraid to fail but always optimizing for success. You can demonstrate this.
As a part of the Content Team, you'll be:
Working alongside the team to identify and produce collaborative content about topics that matter to the Founder community, while supporting the NFX mission.
Teaming up with the NFX General Partners and other tech influencers to research topics and big ideas.
Managing NFX’s social media accounts, but not to produce boring corporate tweets – more to follow, read and authentically connect with people there.
Create community and social playbooks for each of our 5 GPs based on their topics and voice and give them guidance and ongoing support for their own social media.
That said, take the word “social media” and put it in the trash. It’s a web 2.0 phrase, and we’re looking for web 3.0 community. Be on the leadership team driving toward growing NFX’s network of insanely great people.
Leveraging distribution channels to drive results. In this role, your greatest distribution channel is a network of people you can go direct to.
Excited? Great. We are too. Please take a few moments to apply. We’re looking forward to meeting you.
