We are also looking for talented individuals, not just startups. Entrepreneurs-in-residence – engineers, designers and business generalists – work full time with our startups or create new ones.

Take 9 months, from March to December 2018, and join us on an adventure. We are looking for senior engineers, designers & entrepreneurs to help us build new startups. Come with your own idea, and/or work on some of ours, we have a few killer ideas in store. We'll pay you a salary during the 9 months as we get started on a new project... we'll help you find cofounders, validate the idea and business model, and launch!  Then we'll work together on financing, recruiting, and partnerships via the Imagination Machine network.
