Work at Portal

Our mission is to power the next generation of service businesses. If we succeed, more independent businesses will be started and those that do will have a way to serve customers directly, under their own brand, without intermediaries in between.

FAQs

Have you raised any money?

In March 2022, we raised a $10M seed round led by Ali Rowghani at YC Continuity and Lachy Groom. Other investors include Y Combinator, Liquid 2, Tribe, Addition, Slope, YC partner and Scribd founder Jared Friedman, former SVP Product at Lyft Ran Makavy, and Pipe founders Zain Allarakhia and Josh Mangel.

For engineering roles you can be fully remote or join us in our office in NYC. If you are remote, we ask that you can comfortably be online from 11AM to 4PM EST. If you can do that, it does not matter where you are located. For non-engineering roles we have a strong preference for hiring candidates that can join us in NYC.

Why haven’t I found any articles or media about Portal?

At our stage we believe that the benefits of focused execution outweigh any benefits that come external attention and media. We expect to be more public about what we’re doing starting late 2022.

What is the interview process like?

Screen
We'll start with a quick 30min chat to see if there is a good fit.

Interviews
Three interviews. You'll meet our two cofounders and one other member of the team that would work closely with you.

Contract project or onsite
Our preferred situation for the final step is to work together for a few days. This work is compensated.
If this is not an option, we can do an in-person or remote onsite where you’ll work through a project that you present to the team.

Offer
You’ll receive 3 offers with different salary/stock splits.
We want to give you as much information as possible to make an informed decision. Marlon will walk you through our most recent investor deck, share our financial position and projections, and go through our product roadmap.

Reference checks
We use a tool called Searchlight to do a reference check on you. We’ll give you a list of investors/advisors, you can select who you’d like to meet, and we’ll make those introductions so that you can reference check us.

What is work/life balance like at Portal?

For remote team members, we have core hours of 11AM to 4PM EST where we expect everyone to be online. Beyond that, you have flexibility to work when it makes sense for you.

For team members in the NY office, during the week we typically finish the day by 6:30PM to have dinner with friends/family. Often we find ourselves working later on in the evening, and on some occasions, we work on the weekend. This is mostly driven by personal ambition and we don’t expect that everyone who joins the team does the same. As an early stage company tackling a new market, we believe that the return on raw hours is significant. As the team grows and the business matures, we expect to have a more consistent work schedule.
