For our January to July 2023 cohort, we still have 3 internships available – in Account Management, Closing & Compliance, as well as Investor Success. As we continue to grow, so does the role – show us what your skills are and we'll make sure they're put to good use!

Here are some things we think are important…

  • You're enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's degree program. And ideally, you've already completed the first half of your studies.
  • You live in the Bay Area or can move here for the duration of your internship.
  • Founder mindset. We want people who are able to tackle difficult problems on their own and proactively look for new ways to improve Wefunder. In other words: You can just figure it out.
  • Learn quickly. There are tons of details to learn; securities regulations are quite complex and things change fast around here. You must be able to absorb and retain a lot of facts quickly.
  • Organization and attention to detail. It's important that no balls get dropped when dealing with multiple projects and stakeholders.
  • Strong people skills. You should have a talent for making people feel instantly comfortable, heard, and understood.
  • Responsible & accountable. If you say you will do it, you do it.

We celebrate our diversity. If you feel like you don't meet all of the points below, we encourage you to apply anyways. We don't want a confidence gap and imposter syndrome to get in the way of meeting incredible candidates. 🦄
