💼 Full time // 🌍 Remote, LA, NYC, SF // 👩‍💻 7 Teammates

TLDR

Launch House is a community built to connect and support the world’s most ambitious entrepreneurs and creators.

We’re launching a completely new type of digital community experience for startup founders, and are looking for a special community builder to help us make it happen.

You’ll be the lead for taking this new virtual community from 0 to 1 and driving the end-to-end product vision.

The ideal teammate for this role has strong community building experience, is equal parts visionary and executor, and has a passion for helping startups and empathy for the founder journey.

The Role


You will:

  • Build hundreds of new relationships with some of the most ambitious people in the world.

  • Help design, maintain, and evolve the new Launch House Metaverse location and Discord Community.

  • Lead the community application and onboarding process: screening, interviewing, candidate selection, and closing candidates. We add new community members a few times per year via 4 week cohorts that serve as 'onboarding' to the full community.

  • Manage all digital programming — planning, hosting, and designing events.

  • Create mechanisms to maximize engagemment and make the community self-organizing and self-sustaining. Empower members to build and run components of the community.

  • Social promotion and content creation – publicly elevate community members, share your community building philosophies and musings, and work with our growth team to drive community awareness.

  • Work with to our product team to offer input as we build out our 'digital campus' platform.

  • Design and launch new experimental initiatives and products for the community based on feedback and your own ideas –– take projects from 0 to 1.

  • Ultimately, ensure members have a mind-blowing experience, unlike any other community they've ever been part of before. Member experience must be 10000%.

You are a great fit if you have:

  • High output, execution, and hustle.

  • Strong written, verbal, and organizational skills.

  • Exceptional community building experience.

  • Unique interpersonal skills, charisma, and you enjoy building new relationships.

  • A passion for helping startups and empathy for the founder journey.

  • Social media savviness.

  • A forward-thinking nature. Bonus points if you are interested in or excited by meme culture, web3, and the principles of decentralized community building.

What is Launch House?

We are a community built to connect and support the world’s most ambitious entrepreneurs and creators. Through multidimensional physical and digital community spaces, we are a literal and metaphorical Creator House where collaboration and learning takes place. Modeled after the experience at an elite university, Launch House is an ivy-league institution built for the internet age.

Selection for the community is through a competitive process, and we currently have physical locations in Los Angeles, New York City, and soon online in the Metaverse.

Launch House was founded by Michael Houck, Jacob Peters, and Brett Goldstein in 2020 during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Michael formerly led Product at Airbnb and joined the founding team of Uber Eats, helping it scale to a multi-billion dollar business line. Jacob formerly co-founded Commsor, and has built and advised communities of millions. Brett was a Google Product Manger and also spent time on the M&A team, where he directly advised the Google CEO.

We are a battle-tested and well-funded team with a growing list of incredible community-minded investors like Flybridge Capital and Balaji Srinivasan.

Our Values


As a values-driven community, it's important for us to practice what we preach.

❤️ Community First

This is our most important value. Everything we do, we do through the lens of what would most positively impact our community.

TEAM VALUES

🥰 Lead with Empathy

We listen first, ask questions, and always seek to understand the other side.

👍 Trust by Default

We assume good intent always. Trust breeds autonomy, agency, ownership, fulfillment and ultimately success.

🏆 Be the Best

We should feel like we're doing our best work (and/or the most work) of our lives.

🌍 Everyone Belongs

We are focused on creating a strong, diverse team of equal partners where everyone who joins can feel ownership and safety –– like they've never been more at home.

COMMUNITY VALUES

🚀 Always Be Launching

Launch House started as a viral Twitter moment. We look for people who put their ideas out into the world rather than sitting on them until they're perfect.

🙌 Lift Each Other Up

We celebrates wins, launches, and even Tweet thread posts. We aim to be there for each other for every milestone in our personal and career journeys for the rest of our lives.

🕳️ Go Deep

There are no superficial relationships here. We are building lifelong bonds and bring our whole, authentic selves every single day.

 

We're also big believers in becoming a platform company as a way build industry recognition and elevate our team members. If you are open to it, we will help make you a thought leader in whatever niche you desire.

 

Working at Launch House


We are a team of 7 and are committed to building a robust remote-friendly, diverse and inclusive workplace.

We use Slack, Discord, Notion, and Airtable to keep us moving fast and stay organized, and have two weekly all-hands meetings: a Monday Kickoff and a casual Friday team chat that we call Tea Time 🍵.

There are a lot of things to like about working at Launch House, here are a few:

  • Serve some of the most incredible founders, influencers and investors every day
  • Ground-floor opportunity - have a huge impact, ride the wave
  • Stay in a Launch House location (currently LA and NYC) whenever you like. Check out what life is like at Launch House LA here!
  • Delicious food at Launch House (for locations that provide it)
  • Infinite vacation so you can take a breather when you need to
