About Aumni

Aumni is an investment analytics company based in Salt Lake City, Utah. At Aumni, we are creating an automated platform to extract information directly from venture capital deals and provide the most comprehensive strategic insights related to the economic and legal details in each investment. Our dashboard presents VC firms with an intuitive interface to make important decisions about their portfolio of investments and financial performance.

Having closed our Series A in January, we are rapidly expanding to build new features and attract new customers. We’re continuing to grow our team and are looking for incredible talent to drive our mission of being the single source of truth for investors.

About the Team

Aumni’s team plays a core role in pushing innovation and growth for the company. Our employees embody a culture and mindset of friendship, communication, and execution. We emphasize close collaboration with our customers and are always working to make their lives easier.

Across the company, we value go-getters. The strongest members of our team are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get hands-on to work cross-functionally for the right outcome. We are looking for leaders who want to succeed together.

Outside of work, we are an eclectic group of people with a love for family, food, travel, and most importantly, the outdoors. You’ll either find us at dinner with family, organizing a movie night together, playing video games, or hitting the slopes for a quick hike or ski run before work. We love teachers and those who introduce us to new, fun hobbies we can be a part of!
