Your compensation package will be a mix of cash and equity - with the exact split depending on your experience and your personal preference.

About us

We are a team of two founders with over 35 years of combined experience in startups, tech, growth, and business.

  • Kevin is founder and focused on development and product. He recently sold his last startup. Polar is his fourth startup. He is also one of the inventors of RSS
  • Jonathan is founder and focused on product and growth. He received his PhD from Yale and worked at BCG (management consulting) for five years before founding Polar Our broader team is located on four continents

The startup is officially located in San Francisco but we are all remote. Your location is of secondary importance but we do need at least 4-5 hours of overlap to work effectively with you.

We aim to build a very relaxed company culture and are implementing various methods from our previous experiences in startups and consulting for that.

If you're interested, please reach out to us at with your resume, LinkedIn, and github. Please also add a few summary sentences about you and your interest in Polar.

We are looking to fill this role as soon as possible, and are hiring on a rolling basis. We're looking forward to your application!
