To add an employee to a company profile, click the three-dot icon, and select 'Edit' at the upper right corner of the profile. 

Scroll to the Employees, Board Members, and Advisors section and select Create New Position.


This will take you to the Edit New Job page where you can begin to add employees to a company.

If a person already has an existing Crunchbase profile, you simply need to type their name into the search bar and select the correct profile to begin adding them as a company employee:


If there are no matching results in the search dropdown, this means the person does not have a Crunchbase profile yet. You can create a new profile from the same page by selecting Create New Person:


This will lead you to the Edit New Person page where you can add their details including Name, Photo, and Primary Location:


Even though only the First Name and Last Name fields are required, please fill in as many details as possible in order to create a complete Crunchbase profile.

Unless you are adding an additional job to this person’s profile, you do not need to click Create New Job on the new profile to add the position you originally intended to add. The job will already be queued to be added.


Once you are done filling out the page, click Continue at the top right of the page.

Your screen will return to the “Edit New Job” page where you can fill out the “Add job details” section:


Once you’ve finished adding job details, click Continue at either the bottom or top right of the page. This will take you back to the main edit page for the company where you can Save All Edits at the top right of the page.


Congratulations! You are now done and should be able to see the person in the “Current Team” section of the company profile.
