About Sean

www.linkedin.com/in/seanblack/

I founded Crunched.com, a First Round Capital, Accel Partners, AOL Ventures backed sales engagement platform in 2010 and sold it to ClearSlide in 2013. I co-founded Trulia.com, a Sequoia and Accel backed leading real estate search engine that went public (NYSE: TRLA) in Sept 2012 and now carries a $1.2B market cap. We raised a total of $36M between the two companies. I am looking to do something big and impactful in consumer internet. I am currently focused on health, wellness and nutrition with a specific focus on the 70% of Americans (210m) that are overweight or obese, the 29 million that have diabetes and the 79 million have pre-diabetes, most of both groups are Type 2 diabetes that is directly related to obesity.

I am a mentor at both TechStars and 500 Startups. I am also an investor and advisor to several internet companies.

I am looking for a talented software engineer experienced in consumer internet that also has enough of a knack for UX design and product management to get us off the ground. A deep understanding of and appreciation for the lean startup methodology is a big plus. I am not hung up on geography, as 50% of the Crunched team was distributed, including our VP, Engineering and Product.
