Braintrust ( is a user-controlled talent network, where you keep 100% of what you earn and actually get to own the platform. We've been onboarding some big clients and specifically need an experienced developer for this client.  


Our Client is one of the two experienced franchise and multi-unit institutional private equity investors in the United States. 

As background, their platform serves as the foundation for discovering new investment opportunities -- collecting and processing tens of thousands of news items, LinkedIn, and Twitter feed updates and alerts. It is the most advanced technology platform of any venture or private equity firm and they can share a 50 page PowerPoint presentation as context of what it is.

They have invested $1.5M building a technology platform, starting after they acquired large data sets from the social web in 2014. They have since expanded their capability to gather data and process data. They have been approved by investors to invest heavily in accelerating the development of the platform.

The Project / Position:

While their platform is well developed, there are still plenty of opportunities for both technical and process improvements in achieving their desired outcomes more effectively -- locating and analyzing attractive companies/franchises to add to their investment portfolio.

They are looking for a Business Analyst to start using the platform, gathering interesting companies, and partner with their management team to gather additional requirements and make recommendations for how to improve their process and platform.


  • Help run investment searches to locate attractive opportunities
  • Make recommendations for how to improve and optimize search criteria, process, platform, and reporting


Qualified candidates will be invited to do a screening interview with Braintrust's core team. We will answer your questions about the project and our platform.  If we determine it is the right fit for both parties, we'll invite you to join the platform and create a profile to apply directly for this project.  Candidates will be invited to bid on additional projects that are a fit as well.
