Help us create tools that move science forward

We are a crowdfunding platform for scientists, and we want to share the research process to make the world a better place. We are a small team, and our users have been featured in Nature, The Economist, Scientific American, and more. We believe that how scientists do research in 10 years will be vastly different than how it's funded, conducted, and shared today, and we want to help bring that change.

About Experiment
We were the kids who got in trouble in school chemistry class because we lit things on fire and liked to mix the things we weren't supposed to mix. We are eternally curious, and that is our engine of growth and learning.

Our office is currently based in New York City. Occasionally we do things like dig up dinosaurs and climb Redwood trees for our users.

Our Stack
We use a mix of rails, react, and postgres, deployed on heroku, and we're friendly with TDD and pair-programming.
