What the Community Team is About
We work with and for our community. We care about science more than just about anything else. We want to live in a world where anyone can be scientist. We will do whatever it takes to make this a reality, faster. We work extremely hard and make decisions quickly.

Because of the overwhelming interest that we’ve received for this position we installed a strict filter for candidates. We’ve designed a challenge to help you understand whether or not this position is something you could do day in and day out. Being on the community team at Experiment is not for everyone, but if you’re up for the challenge and succeed you’ll likely be a good fit.
Before coming in for an interview we require that all candidates onboard 3 scientists to launch projects. We measure success for this challenge by having at least one project reach the initial funding goal. You set your schedule, there is no time limit, and our team will help you every step of the way. It helps too if you’ve already contributed to the community with your own dollars; don’t discount the $1 donation.
Before starting, send us a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set you up with a point of contact to guide you through the process.
This is not a single position. We will hire as many candidates as we think are good. If you are still in school and interested in joining our team, you can get a head start. If you succeed you’ll be considered for our student ambassador program.
Experiment is an online platform for discovering, funding, and sharing scientific research.
We're based in New York City. We're a team of scientists, designers, and technologists passionate about helping ideas grow. Our mission is to democratize science.
Where does the most impactful science come from? What makes science beautiful? What if anyone could be a scientist? There are a lot of big questions in science, but these are the ones we ask.
