NFX is Growing the Team: Engineering, Design, Content, & Growth

NFX is the venture firm for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. Our team has collectively started 10 technology companies that created more than $10 Billion in value, so we deeply believe in the power of code. That’s why we started a venture firm that’s also a tech company — in addition to investing capital and providing hands-on support to startups, we build software to help founders cut through noise, shortcut hassles, and focus on building.

We recently announced our new fund and mission to build software and content that transforms the lives of entrepreneurs globally. To achieve this, we’ve assembled a high-caliber team of founders, engineers, operators, and journalists who are all passionate about helping founders succeed.

We are expanding and have five open positions to join NFX.
