Hack VC, an early-stage venture capital firm, has launched HackJobs.org. With an initial focus on software engineers, HackJobs.org aims to match job seekers with fast growing venture-backed startups.
I think a job board is an excellent use case for a VC firm that has invested in 175 startups. It makes sense to help their startups find talent and the single application process will certainly be appreciated by candidates.
According to the press release;
The platform is built to help job seekers access opportunities for work at no cost, without having to fill out hundreds of applications. The process is simple and direct, enabling users to fill out one application that can be shared with startups looking to hire.
“With HackJobs.org, we aim to address this market inefficiency. High-quality developers are valuable and should have an easier time finding their dream job at a startup, rather than endlessly filling-out redundant job applications. With HackJobs.org, a single job application provides access to a multitude of venture-backed startups, letting employers instead chase candidates. We don’t charge the employer nor the employee – we see this as an experiment in social entrepreneurship.”
