Principal

About The Role

Principals orchestrate our entire ecosystem, working at the intersection that brings our high-potential engineers together with the diverse set of opportunities we represent. You’ll work on both sides of the business, forming and managing relationships with the most talented engineers from top universities, while helping your own batch of high-growth companies manage their growth. Principals develop a skill for identifying talent while learning more about the different challenges companies face at various stages of growth, from pre-seed to exit. With a significant portion of our clients often being stealth companies, you’ll also gain insights and exposure into some of the most promising technologies before they start driving global innovation.

Responsibilities

  • Work closely with our members to determine what opportunities within our ecosystem are best for them. You will be working with 60 - 80 engineers at any given point (~200 over the year).
  • Fully manage your own batch of 5-6 client companies, helping them build out their teams throughout their growth. Our clients are primarily early-stage technology companies in various industries, backed by leading VCs.
  • We thrive off launching new and synergistic initiatives within our ecosystem. As a Principal, you’ll be in a unique position to work closely with all components of our ecosystem to identify promising opportunities and internal ventures.
  • Connect entrepreneurial members with opportunities for investment.
  • You will be the connection between our members and our clients, acting as both a guide for our members and the director of talent within our ecosystem.

Important Values & Principles

  • Lifelong Learner: Helping companies tackle uncharted territory requires you to be curious, push traditional boundaries, and maintain a growth mindset for yourself and the ones around you.
  • Strong Work Ethic: To fully appreciate this role and the mission driving Human Capital, you should view the job as a fulfilling part of your life & career.
  • Open Minded: You will be guiding the life trajectory of some of the future shapers of the world at a very critical point in their lives. It is important you understand that what you consider best for you isn’t necessarily best for everyone, and one size does not fit all.
  • Transparent & Honest: Our ecosystem has many moving parts, with each one helping the others grow. If one is suffering, the rest are impacted. It is important to be transparent towards the people we represent and the ones we look to help, to ensure the ecosystem is healthy and sustainable.
  • People First: An organization in its purest form is a group of like-minded people working together towards a common goal. Understanding the value that ambitious people can add to the world and enjoying interfacing, teaching and learning from them is paramount to succeed in this role.

Abilities & Skills

  • Strong Communication Skills: You will be interfacing with many clients and members. You must be able to understand and convey the company mission, culture, growth goals, technologies and success metrics of our clients, as well as the experience, interests, abilities and skill sets of our members.
  • Pattern Matching Abilities: When identifying the best opportunities for our members and clients, it is important to spot the patterns that lead to great matches within our ecosystem.
  • Time Management & Prioritization: When working with 60+ members at a time and managing client pipelines with hard deadlines, it is important to know how to manage your time and the time of others.
  • Ability To Wear Many Hats: There are many moving components to our ecosystem. You need to be comfortable effectively & regularly switching contexts.
  • Attention To Detail: You are helping shape both engineers’ and companies’ trajectories. While we understand that making mistakes is necessary in any learning process, it’s important to take all possible measures to ensure details aren’t overlooked; the smallest mistakes can have large-scale impacts.

Experience

Being in such a dynamic environment, working with companies that are pushing the envelope in new ways, we have found that values, abilities, and approach are more important than raw experience for this role. With that said, we have seen people with certain backgrounds come in more prepared for the responsibilities of this role. Individuals with experience in talent-focused roles at companies experiencing growth at various stages come in with an immediate value add to our members and clients. Being a software engineer is not a requirement, however, with the majority of our opportunities revolving around technological innovation, you should have experience and an interest in technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation. The only requirements we have are:

  • Bachelor’s Degree from a U.S accredited university.

Location

Principals operate out of our HQ office in San Francisco.

Compensation

Our compensation packages are highly competitive, which include a high base salary & significant bonus based on team performance.
