What we do. . .

Agave Lab is a combination of a venture capital firm and an startup incubator.  The model is called a “Company Builder”.  We don’t wait for startups to pitch us.  Instead we look for interesting markets and identify opportunities within those markets to create disruptive startups.  We then do a seed investment, build a team around the idea, and incubate it in-house for six months.  Then we spin it out and do the next one. 

This six month incubation period functions as a compressed master’s level education in how to build a startup.  As a developer here, your role would be (in addition to writing excellent code) as a mentor to successive startup development teams.  Some of the companies that have come through our incubator include VoxFeed, Avisora, and Digitt. 

Who we are:

We are a group of designers, developers, and product managers, that operate out of the Agave Lab incubator in Guadalajara.  We have an 700 M2 (7500 ft2 ) facility with a pool, and garden in the coolest Colonia in GDL.  We have a very informal workplace and culture – flip flops and shorts are just fine.  We work hard and are dedicated to quality but, for the most part, it’s a relaxed and stress-free place to work.  We all genuinely like each other and, most days, we look forward to coming to work. 

The Process:

    • You’ll send your resume to jobs@agavelab.com
    • We’ll do an evaluation based on your resume and set up a quick skype/call.
    • If that goes well, we will ask you to do a coding exercise, if all goes well…
    • …You’re hired!
