Careers at HourlyNerd

About HourlyNerd

HourlyNerd is a marketplace that connects businesses to MBA alumni and students for short-term business consulting. We're disrupting the 100-year old consulting industry and going after two massive markets -- SMBs and major enterprises. There are 28 million SMBs in the US alone, and all have the same problem -- they can't afford expensive consulting firms and don't know how to find high-quality freelance help. We're providing them access to the same people who work at McKinsey at a small fraction of the price. Major enterprises, including GE, Coca Cola, Burger King, and American Apparel, are already using HourlyNerd. The consulting industry in the US is over $17 billion, and these companies know that McKinsey, Bain and BCG are overcharging. HourlyNerd is the first service that provides them a fairly priced alternative.

Our investors include Highland Capital and Greylock partners, two of the top Venture Capital firms out there, as well as famed investor Mark Cuban. We're on a mission to build the absolute best team on the east coast, and are looking for talented, scrappy, fun, and competitive folks to get on board.
