Startup Jobs – 22 jobs that won’t be available for long

Get a startup job - positions available now

Don't think you'll be wearing one of those in any of these jobs.

Looking for a new startup job? I gotcha covered!

What I don’t have are any technical chops when it comes to video. Really, you wouldn’t believe how bad some of the Three to Get Ready video interviews are that I haven’t posted yet. The content is fabulous. The tips from entrepreneurs are great. My technical skills suck.

But, since each one of these videos also mentions startup jobs open now, I don’t want to wait to get that info to you.

So here’s a list of the startup jobs that have come across my Skype in the last two weeks. Go get ‘em.

[ois skin=”Job Updates (in post)”]


Eliptigo  (San Diego, CA)
Key Account Manager: Sales in the hospitality industry, like hotels around the beautiful beaches in SoCal, and beyond. Anyone creative enough to reach out to unique market segments to sell this very cool bike. International sales will also fall to this person. So, hmmm, beaches, hotels and international travel. Not bad, not bad.
Qualifications: Large account experience a bonus, but doesn’t have to be with these types of accounts, or selling bikes. But from what I saw, you better be a fitness buff. The company isn’t filled with weekend warriors; some of these guys have done multiple Iron Man competitions. So go work on that six pack while you work on getting this job.

HubShout  (Rochester, NY)
SEO Marketing Sales: Again, you get it. Know SEO and PPC, want to help other companies know SEO and PPC? Here’s how you can do that! This company is an SEO reseller, and they need your help reselling.
Qualifications: Their posting says sales experience mandatory, but in the interview their founder Chad says he’s had some great hires that came from foodservice. Good waiters know how to push the specials. So you don’t have to be a total techy to get this job.

WordWatch (San Jose, CA)
PPC/Client Managers (multiple positions): Experience with Ad Words a plus, but could be your own personal experience on your own personal blog. Just know how it works, and how WordWatch works. And go get some work! (Training available on the job too.)
Marketing Manager/ Partnership Ninja: (they said it, not me!) Affiliate and OEM management.

For the inside scoop from the founder: Want a Job? Date a Startup

LifeKraze (Chatanoga, TN)
Developer: Well-rounded, they’re working on mobile applications now, so if you’ve got that, great!
For the inside scoop from the founder: Work for a Startup, Change the World (NYC)
Front end developer: Full stack, HTML5, CSS3, ruby on rails, and other stuff that makes no sense to me.
For the inside scoop from the founder: This Startup is Hiring A FEW GOOD MEN

Business strategy analyst (looking for new college grads)
Social media & community manager
Web designer/developer – marketing application group
Marketing automation manager/developer
Sr. web engineer/developer

      I’d say its best not to show up “unannounced” to drop off a resmue. Either send it in the mail, or make an appointment with HR director. Trust me – it annoys people to have to take time out of their busy schedule to find some awkward way to tell you to go away. Take it from someone who regularly turns people away – being persistent is good, being annoying is bad. Showing up unannouced is annoying.

        Yash –
        Yes, just showing up, in particular to a crazy-busy startup might not be the way to go. But I can guarantee you that these early stage startups do not have an HR director….or HR of any kind! For startups, you’ll need to find a name of someone inside and then find a unique way to reach out them. Without knocking on the door in the middle of the day.
        Thanks for the comment and your advice!

    I was actually looking for some legit work sites where I can find work because I was recently laid off. Thanks for the information.

    Hi Kathy,
    Thanks for sharing! I have found I often get a better response applying to jobs posted in places other than Career Builder and Monster, where it seems you get buried. Of course, I do both, to cover all my bases. Thanks again!

      You’re welcome Danny. Yeah, most of the entrepreneurs I’ve talked to don’t have the patience to go through the resumes that they would get through a Monster. For startups, small business, and when reaching out to crazy busy founders, you’re better off going directly to them.

        I don’t think I know ayonne who has had success recently with online job sites, I’m glad to hear that they’re not completely fake. I tried Monster and Career Builder for a week and ended up with several phone calls a day for jobs I would never take, and I’m still getting spam from fake employers offering work-at-home salaries.

          Ugh! The work from home contacts are awful. I have friends who get a lot of them through LinkedIn. You might try searching for companies in your area by the industry type you’re interested in, then start stalking their websites for job postings. The companies themselves certainly aren’t going to spam you! Good luck!
