Moxxie Ventures

Bay Area / New York
Posted on October 9, 2023
Moxxie Ventures is a seed stage firm focused on backing exceptional founders who make life and work better. We are former operators from Google, Twitter, Yahoo and Kitty Hawk and have invested in over 100 early-stage companies. We are currently investing out of our $85M Fund II and a $30M opportunity fund, MoMoxxie. We are growing our team and are looking for someone to help us with the following:

You have a strong, differentiated, deal sourcing network, and enjoy researching, developing, selecting, and championing new deals. Perhaps you hang out in hacker houses, or are otherwise in touch with a network of strong founders and potential founders across one of more verticals. You love discovering the next exciting company before anyone else, and have a discerning eye for true excellence and potential.

Thesis Development
You are an excellent researcher, and/or spotter of trends, and like to get into the details to become a true “mini-expert” in new areas. In particular, we are most excited about AI application companies in health-tech, climate-tech, etc. Those are just a few areas of particular interest – not an exhaustive list.
You can do primary research, talk to a variety of experts, come up with theses and then find promising companies that meet those thesis. You like to discover new areas and educate others (us!).

You enjoy deep, structured thinking in a new area or company. You are not afraid to run a detailed process to enumerate unknowns and relentlessly evaluate them. In addition to researching companies, you enjoy “building the diligence process” based on what we’ve learned over time. You are not afraid to call ten potential customers of the company we are researching in order to learn more about their sales prospects.

Moxxie and You!
Moxxie Ventures is itself a startup, and we want to work with people who will dive in and make impact without needing a very clearly structured role. You will be allowed to contribute wherever you are passionate and can contribute. Your ambition and skill and hard work is the limit, not any box you get put in!
This full-time role should be based in the Bay Area, or New York, as we feel boots on the ground sourcing in those locations is the best addition to the team.
Lastly and importantly, we believe that diversity in our experiences and backgrounds make us stronger. We strongly encourage candidates of any race, gender identity, national origin, sexual orientation, age and any other status to apply.


    • Supporting our portfolio companies to help them achieve product market fit, build their go-to-market function and transform entire industries.
    • Developing resources and programs to help support our portfolio as much as possible (e.g. recruiting, design, PR).
    • Writing quarterly updates to LPs and the investor community.
    • Helping us build the firm.
    • We are an early fund (founded in 2019), and welcome ideas or best practices learned from your experience that we can adapt to make us the best seed stage VC firm in the world.


    • We want you to know what truly excellent early stage startup execution looks like.
    • We are agnostic about how you obtained this (as a founder, investor or operator). That said, a common way is through actual experience working at startups, most likely in an engineering or product role. We find having worked inside companies that look like the companies we invest in can be very helpful.
    • Strong written and oral communication skills with an emphasis on thoughtful, clear communication.
    • Strong organizational skills with excellent prioritization and task management skills.
    • Curious and creative thinker. Ability to know the right questions to ask and develop unique ways to uncover information in opaque and emerging markets. Experience building financial models. This is not our expertise so it would be great to add that capability
    • Team player with a collaborative attitude.
    • We’re an early-stage firm and value a strong work ethic, humility and a can-do mindset. No job is too big or too small for any of us.
    • Preference for depth and track record of accomplishment in some technical field.
Thank you for your interest! We look forward to hearing from you!
