Why Mavenoid

Why you might want to work with us

You think it’s meaningful to help some of the world’s most important organizations troubleshoot mission-critical systems.

You like to solve hard problems and do new things, not mimic others.

You want the upsides of joining a small company early: outsized impact, real ownership and accountability, faster learning, quicker decisions, less bureaucracy, meaningful equity.

You want to be surrounded by people who inspire you and can teach you something.

Why Not Mavenoid

Why you might not want to work with us

You want to do something easy and friction-free. If this was easy, it would have been done already.

Not having a map makes you anxious. We know our destination, but not the exact path that will get us there. If this makes you nervous, you’ll do better at a larger company such as Google.

You struggle with self-discipline and staying motivated. In a small team, we all need to be able to rely on each other. This means we can only hire people that can be relied upon without micromanagement.

You are risk averse. If you are driven by a high salary rather than meaningful ownership in the company, there are better options for you out there.

There are problems and there are
Real Problems

We work on hard and valuable problems that will not be solved unless we solve them

Our Three Principles

Sometimes we fail but we try to live by three ideas

Be Different and Right

When you have a nonconsensus idea with leverage, have the courage to follow that idea to its conclusion.

Act with Selective Intensity

When the situation is favorable, act forcefully.

Take the Long View

Focus on what’s important. We’re on a journey to build a 100-year company.
