About On Deck
On Deck is on a mission to build a modern education institution for the future of work. Today, On Deck has become the place top talent and ambitious builders go to accelerate their ideas and careers, empowered by a world-class community of their peers.
More about us:
Read about our most recent round of fundraising from Packy McCormick at Not Boring here.
When people join On Deck, they're joining a community that will serve their professional needs through the twists and turns of a career - equipped with the skills, network, knowledge, and tools to support them along the way.
Our Community Platform team is building the next generation of social network with the On Deck Universe as our userbase. As opposed to showcasing just the highlights of your life in an unrealistic way, or convincing you to scroll mindlessly, On Deck has just one goal when building product for our community - helping them achieve their personal and professional goals. The goal of our product is to match and connect people with the answers, information, resources, and people to realize their potential.
On Deck is fundamentally only as strong as our ability to scale the magic of a close-knit community to thousands, (hopefully soon even millions), of ambitious people. It's more than just a 'cohorts' business; we're building a platform to serve the needs builders of tomorrow. If you want to read more about platforms: beondeck.com/platform
Why you might be excited about us:
We're tackling a big problem with even bigger potential. We plan to build the modern educational institution for the next 100 years.
Customers f*ng LOVE us. Nearly one in three of our all-time customers have added On Deck to their Twitter bios and/or LinkedIn - choosing to align their core professional identity with their participation in an On Deck program. They describe On Deck using superlatives like "life-changing," "the best decision I ever made," "It's too good to be true, but it's true," and more.
We have many former founders working at On Deck because they see the huge potential in what we are building.
You'll be able to work remotely and (mostly) set your own schedule. On Deck was a remote-first team even before COVID, so we know what makes for a great remote environment.
You'll have a lot of flexibility in your role, and will be able to help define what your role and our product-engineering teams looks like going forward.
We're backed by over 200 world-class investors, operators, and executives, including a $20 million Series A led by Keith Rabois at Founders Fund with participation from Village Global, Balaji Srinivasan, Bloomberg Beta, and so many more.
