This week, we feature a CTO opening at a tech-centric investment startup, a government relations leader at a defense tech startup that just landed $75 million in fresh funding, and three other interesting open roles.

Company: Vannevar Labs
Position: Head of government relations
Salary: $120,000-$190,000
Location: Remote
Why it’s cool: The company literally just got $75 million in funding on Jan. 18. It makes intelligence-ish/national security-ish stuff.

Founded only in 2019, Vannevar is a remote-first company with offices in Palo Alto and Washington, D.C. The company says it “makes ​​products for the country’s most critical national security problems.” It’s a self-described growth startup with investment from Felicis Ventures1, Costanoa Ventures, Point72 and General Catalyst.

Sound intriguing? We thought so as well, and a list of its open positions proves equally compelling. Vannevar Labs has raised a total of $87 million in funding over three rounds. Its latest funding was a Series B announced on Jan. 18, according to Crunchbase data.

To apply, go here. Vannevar Labs is also hiring for several other positions.

Company: BeeHero
Position: Account executive
Salary: N/A
Location: Del Rey, California, but the company has global operations.
Why it’s cool: Seriously, bees — well, pollination really. BeeHero offers “pollination-as-a-service” technology to help address the global food supply. (Read: You can help save the world through bees.)

BeeHero makes a beehive technology platform it says can maximize crop yields in commercial agriculture through pollination. The company has raised a total of $66 million in funding over six rounds, including its most recent — a Series B on Dec. 1, 2022, according to Crunchbase data.

The company is hiring account managers to introduce its product to almond growers throughout the Central Valley of California. Account managers will develop new and maintain existing business. These positions will report directly to the vice president of sales.

Company: Republic
Position: Chief technology officer
Salary: Base range is $300,000-$350,000
Location: Republic is headquartered in New York City with offices worldwide, including divisions in London and Dublin. The position is listed as “remote,” however.
Why it’s cool: It sounds fun to be the CTO of a tech-centric investment company with such a unique approach.

What’s that approach? Republic “curates” private investing opportunities with high-growth potential across startups, gaming, real estate and crypto. The company has raised a total of $214 million in funding over 14 rounds. Its latest funding was raised on April 25, 2022, from a Series B round, according to Crunchbase data.

According to the company, the CTO will report directly to the CEO and be responsible for leading the technology strategy and operations of the company. This role will be responsible for all the product development and innovation activities within the organization and across all business units. All pretty cool considering what Republic does.

To apply, go here. Republic is also hiring for several other positions.

Company: Trala
Position: Program manager
Salary: N/A
Location: Trala is based in Chicago but this position is remote.
Why it’s cool: It’s an online music school. That’s just cool.

Trala is the self-proclaimed fastest-growing music school in the world, and says it posted more than 1,000% growth in 2022. Its mission is to make world-class music education accessible to every single person on Earth. Well that seems like a big deal. Trala has raised a total of $22.9 million over five rounds, including its latest funding on Dec. 14, 2022. Investors include Airbnb and Seattle Symphony, according to Crunchbase data.

The program manager role is brand new, and a “highly autonomous management role that entails running a division of Trala teaching, i.e. managing 10-20 teachers and 200-400 students.”

To apply, go here. Trala is also hiring for several other positions (including online violin instructors).

Company: Assetz Capital
Position: Funding and reporting specialist
Salary: N/A
Location: Wilmslow, U.K.
Why it’s cool: You don’t have to work on your birthday (seriously, “birthday leave” is one of the company’s listed benefits).

U.K.-based Assetz Capital is a marketplace lender that provides its services for SME finance, bridging and property development sectors. But more importantly, it sells itself as being on a mission of inspiring and leading improvements to an imbalanced financial system. Doing good sounds good to us.

Assetz Capital has raised a total of $62.6 million in funding over nine rounds. Its latest funding was raised on Aug. 31, 2022, from an equity crowdfunding round, according to Crunchbase data.

The funding and reporting specialist is a new role working closely with the tech and change teams, supporting new and existing change/data requests.

To apply, go here.


Crunchbase News editors selected interesting roles to feature based on Crunchbase’s Actively Hiring and funding filters. We looked for companies that are tagged as Actively Hiring — meaning they have multiple open roles listed — within Crunchbase, and have recently raised new funding. We only included companies that have raised at least $1 million in total funding.

We mostly look at U.S. roles, but also feature other locations, and cross-reference companies with our Layoffs Tracker to avoid featuring those that recently laid off employees. Deciding which roles to feature is ultimately based on editors’ discretion.
