TLDR

Launch House is a new kind of community for top founders and creators. We're a cross between SoHo House, Y Combinator, and WeWork — focused on bringing together high quality people and accelerating their careers through authentic connections.

We're looking for an experienced, community-minded engineer to help create tools for our members. You'll be building across all areas of our product, from our in-person member experience to our digital community platform and metaverse.

The Role


You will:

  • Be responsible for planning, organizing, and executing entire projects from idea to launch
  • Be a thought partner to our founding team — help drive product direction
  • Fully integrate into the LH community and gain empathy for our community members' needs
  • Be pushed to think about the future — what could we be building in 12 months?
  • Ensure we're online and delivering on our promise of a quality community experience

You are a good fit if you:

  • Have 3+ years experience as an engineer in startups or at a tech company
  • Communicate well — strong written and verbal is a must
  • Are detail-oriented — you're known to think through every possible scenario
  • Care about quality — you take pride in what you build
  • Can be autonomous — you can juggle a lot of different things and manage your time well
  • Are comfortable with ambiguity — startups are unpredictable
  • Deeply empathize — you love learning about people and what motivates them

You are a great fit if you:

  • Have experience with cohort-based courses or communities
  • Are in or can easily get to NYC or LA
  • Are future-oriented — if you're excited about crypto, the metaverse, and anything else like that, you're our vibe
  • Have been a founder or creator yourself

What is Launch House?


Launch House is a community built to connect and support the world’s most ambitious founders and creators. Through multidimensional physical and virtual community spaces, Launch House is 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, with about 20 members selected per monthly community program cohort. Launch House currently has locations in Los Angeles, New York City, and soon online.

Michael Houck (ex. Airbnb PM), Brett Goldstein (ex. Google M&A), and Jacob Peters (ex. Commsor cofounder) started Launch House in 2020 in response to the isolation felt during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are funded by 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.

🚀 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.

Working at Launch House


We are a team of 10 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 only have two weekly meetings: a Monday Kickoff and a casual Friday team chat that we call Tea Time 🍵.

  • 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
  • Delicious food at Launch House (for locations that provide it)
  • Infinite vacation so you can take a breather when you need to
