Finding Hidden Jobs at Venture Capital-Backed Companies

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:

From: Lorraine Russo

StartUpHire is the "job site dedicated to recruiting exceptional talent to venture capital backed companies. These are some of the most rewarding careers on the planet, but they historically have been difficult to identify."

Here's what so cool about this site:

No resumes are collected at the site, and all correspondence takes place solely between the individual and the hiring company.


For example, I clicked on #5, Draper Fisher Jurvetson. This brought me to their site where I checked out their "cool jobs." Clicking on the 'Executive Management' openings showed me a detailed description for a VP/Director of Marketing that included contact info---email, phone, etc. How's THAT for something new & different??

Before you go to their jobs page, take a few moments to read an explanation of the TYPE of start-ups that are hiring at their FAQ page. Not all new companies are fully-formed...some are in beta, while others are fully-profitable.

The stages listed are

  • Stage 1: Napkin
  • Stage 2: Product Development
  • Stage 3: Beta Test
  • Stage 4: Shipping Product
  • Stage 5: Profitable
When you get to their jobs section, you'll be blown away: there are nearly 16,500 opportunities!!
