These top startups are all hiring people like you

Today I want to help you answer the million dollar question that I hear over and over again from the hundreds of people on our startup job hunting mailing list…

What startups are kicking butt and are hiring people like me (early career professional without a tech background)?

Well, recently Wealthfront did a bunch of hard work  putting together a great list of 100 career launching startups.

We took that list, went to every single company’s jobs page, and identified which companies are hiring folks with a background like yours.

We then linked to the company’s jobs page and to a specific job post (if possible) to make it easy for you to research the companies and the jobs.

Take a look, learn about the companies and the openings, and apply if you think there’s a good match.

(And let me know in the Comments if there is anything stale in here, we’ll update it right away!)
