Most of these job postings are for engineers and senior management roles, which makes sense because Hacker News attracts readers experienced in the tech startup space.

Don’t get discouraged, though. You can use this for entry-level and non-tech roles as well!

Why? These companies are startups hiring for at least one role. That means they are probably in a growth phase and hiring for more than just senior-level tech roles. Here’s how you can find those other roles:

  • Almost every job posting has a link to other jobs at that same company.
  • Most of these include entry level and non-tech roles!

Here is a direct link.

Happy job hunting!
