How We Hire

We know interviewing for jobs is a tough process. We hope these notes provide helpful touch-points as you move through our process. Can't wait to meet you!

Timeline

We don't rush hiring. It's important to us to know if it's a fit for both sides. You're interviewing us as much as we're interviewing you! We're focused on building a great team and we're excited to build one together.
That being said, we can move very fast if need be, the fastest we've run an end-to-end process is within 1 week. More realistically, it takes a few weeks and can even take upwards of 1 month.

The Process

Application

Apply online! If you don’t see your dream role, pitch us on it!

Application Review

We'll review your resume and application to see if your skills match up with our current team needs. If it's not the right fit, we'll let you know and make sure to hold on to your resume in case there's a better opportunity in the future!

Video Call

A 1:1 video call, with you and either JP or Arjun, or another hiring manager on the team to get to know each other. We'll tell you about what we're building here at doola, how we think about the market opportunity, and how our team works. We're eager to learn about you and why you want to join us.

Take-home exercise(s) [Depending on Role]

If you're applying for a role with a take-home exercise, we'll give you a sample project to take home!

Review Call

If moving forward is the right step, we'll schedule a call to review your work + discuss final steps in the process. [This will sometimes be at the same time as the Onsite Visit + Teammate call!]

Onsite Visit & Teammate Call

Depending on your location, we’ll have you come onsite, and/or we’ll do a video call, with colleagues you'll work with.

References

We talk to at least 2 people, and this will take time as we consider what they say. We typically ask to talk to a peer and a manager.

After each step, we'll give you a timeline for the next one.

Our Story

When we were in the process of pivoting from a failed startup, we realized we were spending way too much time on running the business, not growing the business.
And then
we thought...
Online business owners want to focus on growing their business, not annoying administrative work.

We handle everything online entrepreneurs need to get a business off the ground: formation, U.S. banking and payments setup, ongoing compliance, IRS tax filings, and more.

Today we're growing faster than ever with our US HQ in 🗽 New York, NY, and our European HQ in 🇩🇪 Hamburg, Germany.

Investor Quotes
Managing Director, Nexus Venture Partners
Creators and independent entrepreneurs want to focus on their crafts that they love. However, to build businesses around their crafts, they would also need to take care of unexciting but necessary backend business management functions (like incorporation, compliance, taxes, banking, payments etc.), for which they usually do not have expertise, nor interest, nor the time those activities demand. doola is set to address just that: so solo-preneurs can do what they love and are best at, while doola takes care of the rest. We are thrilled to partner with Arjun, JP and team doola in their journey toward building a remarkable company.

For any business, whether it's a venture-backed SaaS startup with a Delaware C Corp or a solopreneur bootstrapping an e-commerce business, having a trustworthy, stable, and scalable banking + payments stack is critical. Through doola, international founders can seamlessly access the US financial ecosystem, including US banking, US payment solutions, US venture capital, and more.
Co-Founder/CTO of Hubspot
Love the work that doola is doing.

Aligns with my philosophy of addressing the "talent is evenly distributed, opportunity is not" issue.

More startups everywhere = good for everyone.
Founder of Teachable, Founder of Vibe Capital
The creator economy is booming with 50M+ becoming creators in the last decade -- and these creators becoming businesses in the coming decade. All other data confirms this trend, with new business applications in the US up massively quarter-over-quarter (Source). doola makes it incredibly easy for anyone, from anywhere in the world to set up a US-based LLC, get a US bank account, with access to all the payment products and financial services typically reserved for US-based businesses. What intrigues me about this business however is not this initial beachhead [business formation], but the longer-term opportunity they have to handle all the unsexy business management pieces for creators and independent entrepreneurs around the world -- including incorporation, banking, taxes and other critical pieces of infrastructure.
