What’s it like to work here? Collaborative. Dynamic. Ever-changing and never boring. (Our workspace is pretty cool, too.) Careers here offer unlimited potential for growth and typically take one of three paths:

  • Stay with 1848 Ventures and enjoy the variety that comes with new venture development
  • Fall in love with one of the ventures and leave to help it launch
  • Follow a project that spins into the core business (Westfield Insurance)

We’re also proud to offer the competitive benefits of a big company with the growth opportunities of a startup. We offer a competitive salary structure and bonuses as well as benefits and perks like:

  • A 401(k) with 3% safe harbor
  • Competitive medical/dental/vision plan
  • Generous paid time off (plus holidays)
  • Dynamic, modular workspace
  • An expansive campus with plenty of green space, wi-fi enabled sundeck, two 18-hole golf courses, a chef-staffed dining room, a coffee bar, bank, dry cleaning, and more
  • Fitness center
  • Free parking
  • Close proximity to the home of the $1.50 beer
  • Integrative approach to work-life balance (because life doesn’t just happen outside working hours)

Why Cleveland rocks
We work with teams in San Francisco, New York, and Chicago, but we’re proud to call Northeast Ohio home. Here are a few reasons why.

  • Median home prices below the national average plus a cost of living 250% lower than New York City and 66% lower than Chicago (source: Unpakt.com)
  • Proximity to Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Cleveland’s “Emerald Necklace,” a network of parks that spans over 23,000 acres and includes over 300 miles of walking, bicycle, and horse trails
  • Lake Erie’s miles of sandy beaches and beautiful islands
  • Several professional sports teams
  • Dozens of craft breweries
  • Stellar cultural attractions including opera, ballet, the symphony, regional theater, museums, and more
  • Great food scene (including several James Beard Award-winning or nominated restaurants and chefs)
  • Broad cultural diversity thanks to more than 100 nationalities calling Cleveland home
  • Home of the 2020 Super Bowl Champion Cleveland Browns (they call us Believeland for a reason!)

“I relocated from Chicago, and I can attest that Cleveland has all the big-city amenities without the big-city traffic or prices. Plus, I love the outdoors and love that hiking, biking, kayaking, and more are only minutes away at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Cleveland’s Metro Park system.”

Ken Ashner, Concept Development

“We’re a short drive from restaurants, sports, events, Lake Erie, and direct flights from Hopkins International Airport. Northeast Ohio is a great place to live and raise a family.”
