We were recently asked by Aaron Brask, one of our guest bloggers, why we don’t provide a “job board” on our site. Aaron works for several large family offices and he says it is incredibly difficult to find intellectually honest talent.

Aaron also pointed out that we have a unique community of savvy, curious, and genuinely engaged readers both on the job seeker side and on the employer side.

For example, perhaps you’d like to be a taxidermist and simultaneously calculate differential equations on a white board at the same time? We can probably find the person who will hire you, but it is unlikely a typical job recruiter could say the same…

In fact, when we posted a job request from an Alpha Architect family office client, we received overwhelming response, and the family was able to get a placement within a few weeks. So maybe we can help out in this regard!

Anyway, I thought Aaron raised a good point so we went ahead and set up a basic functionality “job board” for our community. Feel free to post jobs.

We’ll be posting our currently available positions as well.

Good luck.

    A great addition would be a subscription service for the offers posted.

    I am reading your blog through RSS feeds (Feedly all the way!) and would find it handy if you could generate one for any new job added. I think it could help spread the word.

    Very cool. I’ve actually been thinking for quite some time that AA would be that impossibly possible firm I would ever be motivated to give up early semi-retirement to have a job with. It’s not a job when you’re having fun! But, still not enough motivation to get those silly letters after my name just to get any attention. It sounds like your family offices do see beyond the B.S..

  • ha! yes, as a former intelligence officer i can attest to that statement…

  • i’ll have to dig in and figure out how to do this. we’re buried in a pile of various ops at the moment but we’ll tackle it over summer

  • Bertrand

    Thanks, no rush though! I guess an email subscription would also do the trick.
