Entrepreneur in Residence Program

Round-Up: Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR) position based in Berlin. Option to complete part of the program in US. Will consider remote candidates in EU or candidates willing to relocate to EU.

🤩 We are Donut

Say no to idle money. Have you ever checked your bank and wondered why you earned only 0.1% in interest last year? We're here to change that.
We believe the future of finance is open. DeFi makes financial independence possible for all—offering 4-10%+ yields and earning opportunities far superior to traditional banks and institutions.
Our traction is standout. We have 10,000+ users already using Donut and seen 40%+ monthly growth rates since launch.
We've raised $3.8M by the backers of N26. We're backed by amazing FinTech and DeFi investors including Redalpine, InVentures, Robot Ventures (Robert Leshner, CEO Compound), Tiny VC, Entrepreneur First & individuals behind the Washington Nationals baseball team.

🎪 The role

This is structured as a 9-12 month program to rival programs such as McKinsey's Associate Program. EiRs at Donut are supposed to incubate, build up and lead entire functions after 12 months
You'll work closely with the leadership team on building and managing Donut (backgrounds in investment banking, private equity, tech and product at Rothschild, N26 inter alia)
You'll manage major strategic projects end to end. Examples: open Donut in Europe; incubate the customer service team; improve CVR in sign-up by 2x; build brand partnerships
You'll represent the founding team in their absence in internal and external meetings including steering committees and major partnership conversations
You'll roll up your sleeves, no matter what needs to be done. We are an early stage start-up

🙌 About you

You just love to own things end to end. If you weren't applying at Donut, you would probably be looking to start a business
You are passionate about changing the status-quo in finance and you want to build a new independent system that works for all
You have a never-ending curiosity and excitement for tech entrepreneurship and crypto
You graduated in the top 10% of your class in business, engineering, design, data or a related field from a top tier university
You gathered first experiences in start-ups, VC, strategy consulting or banking
You are great with excel, a data nerd (e.g. SQL) or UX/UI designer (strong plus)

🌻 Our offer

Highly competitive salary. We look for the best and pay accordingly
Full-time contract. We are remote-first but have a preference for people based in Berlin
We will sponsor non-EU candidates wanting to come to Europe

🌈 You belong here

As long as you’re fun to be around (and got the technical chops of course), we want to work with you; whatever skin-color, sexual orientation, gender, culture or religion
Everyone is encouraged to bring their authentic self to work which also means you’re encouraged to share as much (or as little) about your personal life as you want

👍 The perks

Learn entrepreneurship from an experienced leadership team
Build an asymmetric career in FinTech or consumer facing tech businesses
We have a flexible remote work policy, so if you need to work from home or the office Berlin or LA that's cool. We try to meet up every few months to maintain that personal touch
The tools you need to do your job: your choice of laptop and desk set-up
And of course, vegan donuts!
