Human Capital's real power was in connecting me to high-potential companies in their network before anyone else knew about them.

Human Capital team listened thoughtfully to understand my skill set and interests. Only then did they match me with an amazingly relevant list of companies, and I wouldn’t have known about Nuro if they hadn’t connected me. A year ago, I wouldn’t have expected to have learned about and built so many different things.

Finding a startup headed for success as a college graduate can be a daunting task; Human Capital is the perfect way for college graduates to find startups to work for.

I may have joined another startup or returned to Facebook, but working with Human Capital really helped me feel confident in my decision and also gave me a bit of guidance I needed to deeply develop my understanding of what I was looking for and why. I've been on the team at Snowflake for a bit over four months now, and so far work has been challenging but rewarding, It's been especially crazy watching the company grow and change in real-time even in the short time I've been here.

If I wasn't introduced to Clumio through Human Capital, I probably would've signed one of my other offers with more established tech companies. I definitely do not think I would be working on projects as big and important to the company's overall mission as I am now. So far I've enjoyed every day of being at Clumio. Everyone is invested in helping me learn and grow, and I think it comes from the fact that at Clumio there's a shared understanding that helping each other grow will make the company overall stronger in the future.

If not introduced to Anduril by Human Capital, I would have probably continued my job search at big companies in the Bay Area. I have always been an idealist -- I believe that we can all find work that is meaningful, challenging, and genuinely fun. The kind of work that excites us, the kind for which we are jumping out of bed. Working for Anduril has been nothing short of this.

I didn't start my job hunt until about March, which was already incredibly late! I'm glad this gave me the chance to start exploring startups though, as now I am very happy I ended up at Clumio thanks to Human Capital. It's been amazing!! I have just learned SO much at my time at Clumio. What makes Clumio unique from other startups in terms of learning opportunities is the culture and the people. Clumio has a GREAT team with star co-founders who had experience in the industry and running a company. The senior engineers are not only very willing to help, but also very qualified.

Human Capital helped me get to and decide on Brex, which I have no doubt will set me on a differentiated path (and in many ways already has). It's probably been one of the best outcomes I could've hoped for based on my decision to join.

How does the Matchmaking process work?

Our personalized matchmaking process connects members to opportunities we think are the best fit for their experience, interests and goals. It is led by our principals, who help guide members through our ecosystem. By having a close relationship with their members and an understanding of all of the options, our principals not only connect members to the best potential positions but also support them through every step of the process.

What companies does Human Capital work with?

Human Capital is pleased to partner with the best venture capital firms and their portfolio companies. By meeting with founders and their core engineering teams, we develop a deep sense of the technical expertise these growing companies need and how they operate. That understanding enables us to match high-potential engineers with the most promising opportunities for them.

Our members have signed on as early engineers at disruptive startups including Robinhood, Grammarly, Nuro and Snowflake. In addition, we’ve supported entrepreneurial members in founding such game-changing companies as Brex, Qualia, and Nuro.

Does Human Capital only match members for software engineering roles?

Full-time software engineering roles form the majority of the opportunities in our network. We occasionally become aware of PM and data scientist roles, but those positions generally require a master’s degree or Ph.D.

Does Human Capital help members find internships as well?

Our focus is on full-time roles. However, if promising internship roles pop up, HQ will reach out to members to gage their interest!

Do you meet with Master’s and Ph.D. students as well?

Yes! We meet with undergraduate, master’s and Ph.D. students graduating the following academic year.
