Human Capital is a venture firm for engineers. We believe great companies are built by great engineers, and we invest in people and companies that share the same belief.
In the last 5 years, that mantra has led us to invest in 10 companies before they became unicorns, including Snowflake, Anduril, Livongo, and Brex (where we wrote the first check). We have over $1.2B AUM and we've built a network of over 5,000 incredible, driven, ambitious engineers.
Now we're looking for talent advisors to build our next chapter.
We have a unique vantage point at Human Capital–working with founders, investors, and engineers alike. You’ll have the opportunity to coach founders on how to design their talent roadmap, act as a talent therapist–diagnosing why candidates drop off at a certain stages in the process and even wading into the dark depths of modeling capacity planning.
This role is for those who rebuke monotony and crave the unknown, in order to build relationships and companies from the ground up.

You think long term: You like to move fast and GSD, but you also put care and attention into building things that you know will last.
You’re a mentor at heart: You enjoy coaching and guiding leaders through tough decisions, and are excited to not only advise but truly coach our founders.
You love tech: You’re genuinely passionate and interested in what our portfolio companies are building, and have the technical exposure to really understand what makes a tech startup unique and impressive.
