Our mission

We are fundamentally changing the way people find their next job at fast-growth companies. It's crazy you can filter for Airbnbs that have a microwave, but you can't filter jobs that have a work-from-home policy. Our focus is on giving candidates the best experience, and this is how we'll disrupt companies like Indeed, LinkedIn and AngelList. We provide all the information to make informed decisions. No hassle from recruiters. Relevant roles, rather than 1000s of search results

  • We’re currently closing a funding round with some of the most exciting early stage investors in London and will be scaling fast over the next year
