My experience with Human Capital was super positive, they convinced me that I would actually be interested in Anduril, despite me promising myself I'd never work in defense again after a stint at a traditional defense contractor. I wouldn't be here without Human Capital!

I had no intention of joining Clumio until I met with their founders and leaders. It's hard to explain exactly what went through my head when I met them, but I had never been so impressed with a leadership team. If Human Capital was not mediating between us, I wouldn't be where I am today at a rocket-ship startup.

After being placed into my first job by Human Capital, I had the chance to observe factors contributing to different startups' successes and decided to start my own. Human Capital was my first investor and been much more than an ordinary investor by pointing me in the right direction with clients and advisors and helping me recruit new employees with minimal effort needed.

Human Capital played a key role in helping me find a great company, Thoughtspot, to start my career with. I loved my time at ThoughtSpot and experienced the company scale internationally to a 500+ person org/$2B valuation. More importantly, Human Capital team has had my back every step of the way, from helping me negotiate my original offer to provide advice on a new venture I’m launching.

How does Human Capital make money? Are there any member costs?

Our members do not pay anything to join or participate in our community. We get paid when companies hire a member we’ve introduced them to. We are proud to be fully aligned with our members on incentives.

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.
