Junior Developer @ The Lobby / by Haley Smith



Interested? Email CEO Deepak Chhugani at deepak@thelobby.io

Join an early-stage startup backed by Y Combinator in their current batch and that has thousands of dollars in revenue + over a thousand email sign-ups. Our advisors have all started & sold B2B and B2C companies here in the US. We're also backed by Kairos Society, Tacklebox Accelerator, and WeWork Labs.

The work you do here will dramatically influence the course of the company, and you will help us build it from the ground up. Not everyone is meant for this kind of responsibility, but if you are, read on.

We started The Lobby because we believe that coming from a privileged background or being good at "networking" shouldn't be a prerequisite for getting the best jobs, even though that's mostly the way things work.

The Lobby is an online marketplace where job candidates can buy affordable 1-on-1 calls with company insiders in exchange for personalized recruiting advice & the chance to earn an employee referral, which is the most effective way to get hired

Our vision is to use technology to democratize access to 1-on-1 mentorship that can help candidates land the best jobs without needing an inside connection. Join us!
