This isn't our first rodeo. We're proud to have helped build...



Co-Founder & CEO
I grew up in Modesto, an agricultural town in Central California. Despite Modesto city’s proximity to Silicon Valley, the city is almost entirely cut off from the technology industry, the economic engine of the 21st century. I helped start MainStreet in part to help bring back good jobs, and upward mobility to the people living in my hometown.


Co-Founder & CPO
Seeing the economic changes in American society and their effects on the evolution of both rural and urban environments really impacted me. Living in the Bay Area, watching it become unlivable & expensive while smaller Rust Belt cities were hollowed out, made me want to do something to reverse these trends. I started MainStreet with Doug and Daniel to try to reinvigorate smaller cities by connecting them to the 21st century economy.


Co-Founder & Engineering Manager
Not everybody should have to uproot their lives to San Francisco, New York, or Los Angeles for the privilege of having a job. I joined Dan and Doug to start MainStreet because it shouldn’t be impossible for engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs to build their lives where they want.


Sr. Software Engineer
I started my career with a political science background working on community development issues, from teaching in the Ecuadorian rainforest to interning for a US Senator. From there I jumped into tech, learning Python and cofounding startups in ed tech and sustainability. At MainStreet, I get to put all my experience into one role — it's magical.


Product Manager
This product is a no-brainer for every founder. I first used MainStreet as a customer – the idea that a company can sign up in minutes, get automatically qualified against thousands of credits, and get tens of thousands of dollars wired to their account instantly is electric. We’re building a product that’s going to help small businesses for decades to come.


I joined MainStreet because I was drawn to the team's vision of creating positive economic impact for small businesses across the nation. It's an amazing feeling to come into work each day with a team who is energized by seeing the small guys win.


Public Affairs
I believe in MainStreet’s vision to extend the success of Silicon Valley to startups, communities, and workers all over the country (and soon, the world). I’ve worked with Doug first-hand before – I joined because I’m confident in his ability to lead the team into incredible success.


Engineering Manager
I was excited to help design the early stages of the technical stack and engineering culture at MainStreet and support our 1000's of startups and SMBs across the country. Doug's expertise and passion is contagious – I knew joining MainStreet was the right decision to work on real problems for real people.


Sales Manager
LinkedIn taught me two very important lessons — relationships matter and to find a mission driven company you believe in. I’m invested in our mission and working alongside people I respect. This energizes me to constantly be a better version of myself, for the company, and for our customers. MainStreet was founded with a simple underlying question — “How do you create jobs and opportunity in suburban and rural America”? The task at hand, is to now execute and realize the vision we’ve laid out.


Customer Success Manager
I love the challenge of working at an early-stage startup. Chris, Reid, Jake – the people I work with every day feel closer to teammates than they are coworkers – after meeting the MainStreet team during the interview process, I knew I’d learn more from the people than anywhere else.


Head of Product Marketing
Between Product Hunt and Shrug Capital, I've looked at thousands of startups – MainStreet was the first that really is a no-brainer for everybody. Companies get cash, and governments can incentivize the exact types of behavior they've been trying to for years. I'm just lucky I get to help tell this story to the rest of the world.


Product Manager
I loved my time at Google helping small business owners navigate the challenges of getting their businesses online so they can grow. I’m deeply inspired by MainStreet’s mission to drive economic opportunities for small businesses at scale. The energy and momentum of MainStreet right now is infectious - I knew I had to jump on board now to avoid missing out on this incredible opportunity to shape a fast growing company.


Head of Design
At Gusto, I saw first-hand how difficult it is to run a small business in the US. I joined MainStreet to continue to help small business owners and their employees navigate a challenging system. Government credits and incentives shouldn’t be complicated to understand — this is a great opportunity for our design team to bring beautiful, delightful experiences to our customers and make their lives a bit easier.


Sr. Software Engineer
Two things attracted me to MainStreet: the mission, and the people. The work I do every day directly leads to hundreds of thousands of dollars back into the pockets of founders – everybody's love for the product shines through in the final product and customer experience. It's fun to be proud of what we are creating.


Account Executive
I've experienced firsthand how difficult it is to build and operate SMBs & startups - I joined Mainstreet because navigating tax credits that you are owed should not add another layer of complexity that operators & founders have to deal with.


Business Analyst
I joined MainStreet to help startups and their communities grow together. My first internship during Brown was at a local newspaper in LaGrange – a small post-industrial city in Missouri. There, I recognized that thriving in a high-tech, global economy is difficult in the best of times – I’m here at MainStreet to help entrepreneurs and founders create meaningful work without leaving the communities they know and love.


VP of Sales
Small businesses provide the best opportunities for people to find meaning and dignity in their work. The best tools and technologies are typically reserved for the biggest corporations – MainStreet exists to help empower every small business with the resources they’re owed. I joined to be a part of that mission, and to solve the interesting & complex problems we’ll face along the way.


People Operations Manager
I joined MainStreet after staying home with my babies for a couple of years. I wanted to get back into the HR world and I felt MainStreet was a great fit because of the culture. It is really amazing to work for a company whose vision I can really get behind and be excited about.


Head of Incubation Sales
As an early investor in MainStreet, I assumed my involvement would be high-level – I was happily mistaken. After working with the team, it became clear MainStreet was where I wanted to dedicate my time and energy. Startups often face financial insecurity. Knowing we make the founder journey easier – by providing them non-dilutive capital – is a daily highlight that never grows old.


Director of Customer Success
Whether it’s working towards financial inclusion in Africa or improving operations in rural American manufacturing, I’ve always found purpose in supporting mobility for small businesses. At MainStreet we’re making sure founders and small businesses owners are at the core of what we do and I’m so excited to be a part of the team!


Software Engineer
The admirable, altruistic mission is ultimately what compelled me to join MainStreet. Developing a product that provides much needed financial aid to small businesses is incredibly motivating, and what fortune to get to do it alongside such a driven and delightful team!


Chief of Staff
I am incredibly passionate about social and economic mobility, which is why I studied education during my time at Stanford. I spent 2.5 years working in education and economic development at McKinsey & Co which taught me invaluable lessons about business and collaboration – I met the MainStreet team and quickly realized that the organization was everything I had been looking for: a group of phenomenal, smart, kind people working to promote opportunities for social and economic mobility for all.


Staff Engineer
The largest employment sector in the US is made up of small businesses. Before MainStreet, I was at Zagster, helping small cities & SMBs launch their own bike rental fleets – I joined MainStreet to make sure founders, cities, companies, and teams aren't left behind.


Customer Success Manager
My family ran a small business where I worked while growing up - I understand the kind of value a service like MainStreet can provide. After taking some time to figure out what I wanted to do, I'm excited to join a talented team of caring people working on an important mission.


VP of Engineering
In my next role, I knew that I wanted to focus on a mission that left a positive, lasting impact on the world. I grew up in a household whose primary source of income was our own small business – it was clear that MainStreet's mission was 100% the right fit for me. Early in my conversations with the MainStreet team, it became clear that not only is this a compelling and altruistic mission; this is a stellar team focused on building a durable business the right way from the beginning.


Chief Capital Officer
I dedicated my last 8 years to helping enable financial inclusion to credit-invisible families living paycheck-to-paycheck, completely outside the safety net afforded to our most privileged. Now alongside an incredibly talented team and using cutting-edge technology at MainStreet, we are out to help small businesses make the best of the billions of dollars in benefits already available to them.


Account Executive
I love that MainStreet helps the US private and public sectors work better together. Both often want the same things – economic prosperity, reduced inequality, full employment – but they aren't great at collaborating. MainStreet brings the two halves of the economy together, better enabling individuals, their communities, and the country as a whole to thrive.


Account Executive
I love empowering entrepreneurs - be it real estate agents at Compass or restaurant owners at CloudKitchens. At MainStreet, we're helping the millions of founders and small businesses who interact with the US tax code because they should have access too.


Account Executive
I joined MainStreet to help small business thrive in a landscape that wasn’t built for their success. I want to break down those barriers to success that exist for them. Being a part of MainStreet’s egalitarian vision to provide that equal opportunity inspires me everyday.


Account Executive
I came to Mainstreet for the team. We have such a diverse team from various backgrounds but the one thing that everyone has a lot of is passion. Each team member believes so strongly in our solution because we have seen it help hundreds of small businesses save time and money. I get excited every morning for work because I know that we will help small businesses grow and have a positive impact on our economy.


Business Development Lead
I came to MainStreet because as a prior founder, and a founder-first Investor I genuinely believed they were empowering Founders to spend more time doing what they set out to do..daring to solve problems and create the innovations that will shape the way we all live life.


Sr. FrontEnd Engineer
Creating an incredible product alongside an incredible team with a purpose in helping small businesses, that was all I needed to make the decision to join MainStreet. Within the first week, you can feel the passion and energy across the team – it's incredible to experience and see how quickly we're growing!


Software Engineer
MainStreet enables our government to work better for its people, and when government improves, everyone wins. Working at MainStreet lets me play a key role in empowering people with the resources they need to build a business, which will in turn help raise up individuals, families, and communities.


VP of Operations
Coming from a family of small business owners, I’m deeply familiar with the joys and struggles of running an SMB - and I crave to help! Over the past 5+ years, I’ve built and scaled SMB specific products at Google, learning what it takes to not only help my immediate family, but millions of SMBs across the globe. I truly believe MainStreet’s product offering has the potential to greatly impact SMBs in the US, and I’m excited to leverage my expertise to make this happen.


Staff Engineer
After the last half decade at large tech companies, I knew it was time for the energy and drive of a startup again. When a former coworker reached out to me about Mainstreet, right in the middle of a time I was already interviewing, I was very intrigued. As I heard more and more about what Mainstreet is doing, I knew I had to take the opportunity.
David Meyer


DevOps Engineer
Every venture has a core purpose — to provide value. I joined MainStreet because of their grand vision which is to provide value to thousands of businesses without delay. It is with this process that I have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to efficiently help spread the most good for thousands of entrepreneurs and improve their chances of success in one fell swoop.
Ara Howard


Staff Engineer
Before I came to MainStreet, I ran a software agency for a decade. During that time I was able to work with literally hundreds of small companies, mentored dozens of others, and, most importantly, learned about running my own. And just how difficult it can be. Writing software has always been my way to contribute to the world, so I jumped at the opportunity to help an amazing team of people help all those same businesses stay healthy and strong.
Michael Washington


Sr. Software Engineer
Before MainStreet, I was a founder – having an healthy environment and awesome team is an essential part of wanting to come to work everyday (and how can I forget a no-brainer product!). Working at MainStreet allows me to tap into that and flex the same muscles as running a startup.
Tyler O'Briant


Software Engineer
I grew up in a rural town in Kansas in a family of small business owners. The lived experiences of how difficult running a business can be is what brought me here to MainStreet. The opportunity to help build a platform that levels the playing field for entrepreneurs across the country could not be passed up.


Account Executive
Small businesses are the backbone of our country and our economy. In my previous role at LinkedIn, I was driven by the mission of creating economic opportunity for the global workforce and at MainStreet I get to focus on doing so for millions of small businesses across the US. That, and I get to work alongside some of the most fun, passionate, intelligent, and thoughtful teammates in the game :)
Brittany Hardison


Customer Success Manager
I love helping businesses grow! With previous experience in business banking with SMBs at Azlo, MainStreet's mission to empower growing businesses through real results resonates with me and is the driving force behind joining the team.
Sean Smith


Sr. Software Engineer
Growing up a first generation Irish American, with many of my extended family members being small business owners, I’ve always had a strong appreciation and respect for small businesses. After spending the last 7 years at Twitter, working on the Developer API platform and helping enable a rich ecosystem of SMBs to Enterprise, I’m humbled to join the MainStreet team and help more directly empower SMBs to grow and thrive everywhere.
Joseph Biggica


Sr. Software Engineer
Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy. They have been hit harder than ever after the pandemic upended so many industries, and left many exhausting most, if not all of their resources just to stay afloat. MainStreet can be the difference between a business opening four more locations, or closing its doors for good. I want to be a part of this mission. I joined to help build the tools that will allow these businesses to secure everything they are eligible for.


UX Researcher
I come from a long line of small business owners and entrepreneurs. I’ve seen first hand how challenging it can be to not only sustain a small business let alone have the time, access and resources to grow it. When I started looking for my next role I knew I wanted to be in a position where I was not only helping people but making sure I was giving a voice to/holding the door open for those who historically have not been granted access to resources that empower their ideas.
Eric Guevremont


Software Engineer
For customers, the value proposition is undeniable: free money from credits that you didn't know existed, with all complexity handled by domain experts. But engaging with MainStreet is not transactional. You are working with a team passionate about helping you succeed, and who will keep fighting for you. MainStreet is on a mission to help small businesses thrive, and it has your back.


Operations Manager
I was first attracted to MainStreet by its name, evoking the warmth and community orientation of a small town full of hard-working people pursuing their passions. I've found that the team at MainStreet lives up to that name in every way imaginable, and all for a good cause: helping small business owners achieve success. I come to work every day energized by the possibilities MainStreet presents to small businesses, and more importantly to the people behind them.
Matt Roberts


Director of R&D Accounting
I spent my formative years at big firms helping big companies save lots of money. I loved every minute of it (mostly), but I joined MainStreet to really make a difference in the lives of the start-ups and small businesses that make this economy go and thrive.
Peter Quarterman


Operations Manager
At the beginning of the pandemic I was working for a startup that went through a brutal layoff due to a high burn rate and lack of resources. I knew then my next opportunity would have to be centered around helping others avoid a similar situation. MainStreet’s vision, values, and goals aligned with my own which made the decision to join the team a no brainer!


Product Designer
Coming from a family full of entrepreneurs and small business owners, I understand how difficult it can be to run a business. I joined MainStreet to empower small businesses and create opportunities through thoughtful and intentional user experiences. We’re here to tackle complex problems for small businesses—so they don’t have to.


Data Analytics Lead
After studying political science, I found myself working for a four person financial advising company where we stretched every dollar as far as possible. I’ve spent the years since at Doordash, Google and now MainStreet working to help small businesses grow and succeed. I’m super excited to now work on making the relationship between governments and small businesses even better.


Core Ops Manager
I was drawn to MainStreet by the simplicity of the value proposition and the company’s mission. Small businesses provide such crucial opportunities for meaningful work all across the country.The financial tools and technologies available to help these businesses succeed should be no different than those available to the biggest organizations. There are not many truly win-win-win business models out there but MainStreet is one of them. It is so exciting to be part of a team who comes to work every day to deliver these wins for governments and small businesses.


Product Manager
MainStreet is the perfect storm for a Product Manager. A bold mission, strong relationships with customers, and scrappy can-do attitudes across the team. MainStreet's energy is infectious, the sky is truly the limit. I'm excited to be a part of something that could change how the world thinks about the government, and it's relationship with small business success.


Senior Talent Attraction Partner
I was drawn to MainStreet’s mission to empower small businesses to grow beyond the big cities and into the small towns of America. By providing startups with the financial tools and support they need, will provide Americans across the country to be a part of the future.


Customer Success Specialist
Having seen the amount of effort public sector leaders put into trying to foster economic development and innovation, I am pumped to be working for a team that is making it super easy for entrepreneurs to actually access the resources that they need to solve big problems. As great as it is to think about the huge positive impact MainStreet can have on early-stage companies, the potential impact to improve the collaboration between government and small businesses/startups is even more exciting.


Account Executive
I joined MainStreet because helping people is my passion. And to be able to help businesses find money is also a win win!


Head of Revenue Ops
I firmly believe that many entrepreneurs and small business owners start a business not because they're great salespeople, marketers, or accountants. They do it because they're extremely passionate and skilled at what they do. Which leaves many of them needing help on the business side to grow and expand. I see MainStreet as a vital resource to helping these small businesses and entrepreneurs live their dream without needing to hire an army of staff managing their books.


Account Executive
The second I learned about MainStreet, I knew that it was a company I wanted to work with. You'd be hard pressed to find a role today where you can confidently know that everyone you speak to about your company's product will end up better off than they started. We're helping thousands of companies find and claim the money they're already owed by the government by providing the resources and experience to ensure nothing is left on the table. Getting to see the excitement on founders' faces day after day as they work to grow their companies, well, it really doesn't get much better than that.


Account Executive
Working at MainStreet rocks! Everyday I get to meet with passionate founders and be a part of helping them find money to put back into growing their businesses. The team - with a clear, singular focus to support growing SMBs - inspires me to do everything I can to expand MainStreet's reach to every qualifying company out there!


Account Executive
I joined MainStreet because I love startups! The opportunity to work for a startup that helps entrepreneurs is simply awesome!


Sales Development Representative
We spend the majority of our days (if not lives) at work, so it is incredibly important to me to work for a company and alongside people that are mission driven. Not only does MainStreet enable start-ups and small businesses to grow with an increase in capital, though we do so alongside the most amazing, genuinely kind group of people. I am incredibly excited to see what this group of people can accomplish over the next few years!


Sales Development Representative
As the daughter of an entrepreneur, I am deeply familiar with the ups and downs of building a business. Having witnessed firsthand my dad’s resilience and passion, I learned early on that being small can be an advantage. I have always been drawn to the mission of helping small businesses thrive and at MainStreet we do just that — we empower the small guys to win.


Product Designer
As a designer I’ve worked on solving many different kinds of problems at places like Yahoo and Disney, but tangible outcomes “for people” are often elusive. As an immigrant I’ve dealt with my fair share of government offices — it’s not always been great. At MainStreet I get to design for one of the most meaningful outcomes while helping improve how people think and interact with the government — with an amazing group of humans.


Account Executive
When I heard MainStreet's mission, I had to be part of the team. Coming from a small business, I was well aware of the chasm in opportunities between large enterprises and small businesses. MainStreet bridges that gap. Our ability to empower and support entrepreneurs motivates me every day. I couldn't be happier sharing a solution I so strongly believe in.


Sales Development Representative
Growing up in a family that ran a small business, I have seen first hand the challenges that many entrepreneurs face. MainStreet gives small businesses and entrepreneurs the necessary resources and capital to make their visions become a reality.


Sales Development Representative
Coming from a small family of business owners, joining MainStreet was a no brainer. MainStreet allows me the pleasure of bridging the gap between founders and opportunities to support them. I was looking for an amazing culture and MainStreet far exceeded my expectations. I look forward to how we will support thousands of founders in the future!


Senior Strategic Operations Manager
MainStreet is the perfect environment where my passion for small business success and love for innovation can collide. The mission centered team strives to empower jobs and economic opportunity for small businesses and that resonates deeply with me. Coming from a family of small business owners, I know first hand how difficult it is to find frictionless customer experiences that are truly a win-win. MainStreet is simultaneously changing the game and leveling the playing field when it comes to connecting small businesses with financial benefits and I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the team!


Sales Development Representative
Small businesses employ the majority of Americans and are true incubators for innovation. MainStreet's commitment to these small businesses and the entrepreneurs who courageously launch and operate them is inspiring. It feels purposeful and exciting to be part of a team with the mission of supporting the lifeblood of the American Dream.


VP of People
I knew I wanted to work as a people team leader at an early stage startup to help build and scale their people function – Main Street not only checked the boxes on working fast & smart with some really cool people - but the mission also pulled me in. I ❤️ supporting small businesses - from new tech startups, to the local wine & cheese shop - the idea of helping MainStreet fulfill their mission to help every small business was very inspiring to me. I am so excited to do great things with some great people & if you are reading this, we are hiring, check out our careers page next!


People Operations Coordinator
I joined Mainstreet because MainStreet has a mission that works towards helping small businesses flourish. Being a part of a team that is passionate about creating economic growth is truly rewarding and exciting. I knew MainStreet was the best next step for me and I am fortunate enough to work with individuals who want to make a large impact on small businesses!


Core Operations Specialist
MainStreet puts great minds to work delivering small businesses access to funds they don't have time to take advantage of so that they can focus on the tasks that really matter to them. Drill down further and you get to work with a team that is driven to develop and streamline processes and products to increase customer's capabilities. If that weren't enough, it's a great feeling knowing you're helping someone who will do what they can to make a difference!


Software Engineer
What initially drew me into MainStreet was the mission and the values. They were different from where I had previously worked and aligned with what is important to me. After conversing with colleagues and learning more about the product, I affirm that MainStreet is incredible.


Head of Business Development
Small businesses provide an opportunity and access for so many, as a daughter of immigrants I know just how important this is. MainStreet is working tirelessly to ensure that every small business has its chance to succeed. Working at MainStreet combines my love of working with founders and building to empower communities of people and doing it alongside extremely talented and creative people is all I could ask for!


Core Operations Specialist
When I learned about MainStreet and their love for small businesses I was immediately drawn to them! Coming from a family of small business owners I witnessed the struggles first hand. Main Street is empowering the people which helps the families of small businesses and the community. I started working in small businesses and now I am able to help them in big ways!


Senior Software Engineer
I joined MainStreet for two reasons: to get to work with folks whom I deeply trust, and to work on a product that is so plainly & obviously valuable to users. The opportunity to work in an uplifting place on a product that customers love was an easy choice.


Recruiting Coordinator
I made the decision to come to MainStreet for the opportunity to work with more amazing people while positively impacting founders. In addition to the problems that we are quickly working to solve here. I am excited about our future success.


Customer Support Specialist
Prior to MainStreet, I was a Career Coach, a pursuit I still enjoy as a hobby. I joined MainStreet because I love helping people achieve their dreams. The idea of supporting people in getting their start-ups off the ground so that they can do what they love and help others with their businesses is what drove me to want to be a part of this team! After joining, I am happy to be a part of a team of genuinely kind, friendly, and compassionate people that go above and beyond to help our customers.


Product Manager
At Klaviyo, I built products that helped businesses grow by making customer relationships easy. As soon I as learned about MainStreet’s mission, I knew it would be a great opportunity to continue that small-business focus while tackling another facet of the issues these companies face. I’m so excited by the work we do and the customers and co-workers I get to collaborate with every day.


Customer Success Manager
I joined MainStreet because of its powerful mission to empower small businesses. Small businesses are impactful for community development and flourishing as well as supporting women, minorities, and others who face barriers to traditional employment. This, along with the opportunity to work with driven and passionate teammates, energizes me to serve MainStreet and its customers everyday.
