Back by popular demand, we have uncovered the coolest jobs in tech at some of the world’s most transparent, forward-thinking, and disruptive brands.

The American Psychological Association surveyed 1,562 U.S. workers and found that 25% dont trust their employers. This is a trend that has persisted for decades, but with a new focus on transparency and open communication, many companies have unlocked a secret to keeping employees happy and retain them longer.

Transparency is the future of work. Consumers want more transparency from the brands they buy, applicants want more transparency from the companies they consider, and team members want more transparency from their employers. Secrecy is dead. The world is evolving quickly toward transparency at all levels of business.

See incredible open jobs at Postmates, Oscar Health, and other transparent and rising companies. Interested candidates can add their names for consideration in just a few clicks.

Postmates

In the past, we've all sat at home and wondered, “Why can’t I have food delivered that I really want?”. In 2011 Bastian Lehmann, the Co-Founder, Chairman & CEO of Postmates, set out to answer that question. Nine years later, Postmates has seen explosive growth with over 500,000 fleet members and 600,000 merchants that serve 80% of households in the U.S. in its network.

The company is on a mission to enable anyone to have anything delivered on-demand. The unfortunate circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic have not only made delivery a priority but often a necessity. With an acquisition from Uber on the horizon and room for more exponential growth, Postmates is looking to add a Director, Sales Strategy & Operations, a key role in further scaling the growth of our merchant partnerships and revenue.

Oscar Health

Before giving birth to his first child in 2012, Oscar Co-founder and CEO, Mario Schlosser, and his wife found themselves lost in the complex bureaucracy of a broken health care system. He decided to fix it. Oscar Health has since raised more than $1.5 billion in funding and has a team of over 1,400 employees and 400,000 members. Not a bad start, and as the company likes to say, “We’re just getting started”.

In 2021, Oscar Health is looking to expand into 18 states and 45 total markets, pending regulatory approval. With this growth the team at Oscar Health is looking to add a Director of Security Engineering to help lead major security program functions as the business and team continues to scale.

Hyperscience

Hyperscience has been leading a charge around automation in business since its founding in 2014. Over the last six years, the company has created advanced machine learning systems that eliminate manual data entry to help enterprises run more efficiently. As Hyperscience likes to put it, they've created the, “World’s first software-defined, input-to-outcome automation platform.”

After raising a $60 million Series C in June of this year, the company is focusing on product development and bringing on a VP of Machine Learning to build, grow, and lead the cutting-edge research of Hyperscience’s Machine Learning team.

QEDIT

QEDIT helps companies collaborate and share sensitive data safely. Since its founding in 2016, the Tel Aviv-based company has been one of the hottest startups in its home of Israel as well as globally.

With a growing client list that includes names like Samsung and Deloitte product portfolio, the company is looking to make strategic hires to help shape out its leadership of the team. QEDIT is looking to add a VP of Engineering to join and help lead technical, engineering, product, and sales strategy.

Airtable

Airtable cannot be stopped! The workplace collaboration platform is already used by over 200,000 companies, including Netflix, HBO, and Condé Nast, announced a $185 million Series D funding round in September.

The Series D will help Airtable achieve its mission of democratizing software creation, similar to how the Macintosh democratized personal computing. To do that, the team needs help, and Airtable is looking for a Growth Product Manager, Pricing to help lead pricing strategy and its next phase of growth.

Course Hero

Since its founding in 2006, Course Hero has grown up quite a bit. The former spark notes of textbooks has evolved into a Netflix-like subscription platform with more than 40 million course materials, studying and tutoring resources for college students.

As the world of education shifts more and more toward online learning and remote education, Course Hero sits well-positioned for growth in 2020 and beyond. At least investors think so. Already profitable, the company raised a $70 million Series B in August of this year. To help lead its next stage of growth, Course Hero is looking for a Director of Product Demand Growth to lead user acquisition + demand growth for their core business.

Mode

Mode is on a mission to make data easier to understand and turn it into a force to bring people together. Since its founding in 2013, the company has grown to serve over 600 customers and has a culture shaped by its over 106 world-class employees.

Mode prides itself on its values, which have evolved over the years to focus on responsibility, togetherness, honesty, and transparency. The company is looking for a Director of Data Analytics to manage data analytics and empower others to make analytical and creative business decisions.

Fishtown Analytics

Based in the hip Philly neighborhood of Fishtown, the aptly named Fishtown Analytics is on a mission to empower analysts to create knowledge from data driven insights. The company comes from humble origins and has historically looked to focus on how it could best serve its community.

For the first time this year, Tristian Handy and the rest of the Fishtown team realized they could not keep up with what customers were asking from them. So they raised a $12.9 million Series A round led by Andreessen Horowitz in April. Next on the agenda is continuing to build and go to market with a great product. To help with this, Fishtown Analytics is looking for a Head of Sales to provide strategic leadership for their rapidly growing sales team across different market segments and regions.

Away

Away has a simple belief that, “All travel makes us better,” and they want to make travel easier. The company started after Co-Founder Jennifer Rubio broke her suitcase at an airport in Zurich. After unsuccessfully trying to find a better replacement, she decided to create her own.

Away owes its success to its simplistic yet incredibly practical design, transparent pricing, and of course, a world-class team. The company has been on fire since its founding in late 2015 and now, after selling over 300,000 + suitcases, is setting its sights on further digital expansion and the roll-out of a travel clothing line in 2021.

To help Away’s digital growth efforts, the company is looking to add a Director, Data Engineering to lead its growing Data Engineering team.

Morning Brew

You very well may be one of the 2 million people who start every morning by reading the daily Morning Brew newsletter covering the latest news from Wall St. to Silicon Valley. And if you’re not, you should be.

The easy-to-digest newsletter, founded in 2014 by two University of Michigan students, now employs more than 29 full-time employees and is still growing. Morning Brew has matured into a full-blown media company and, as part of its growth strategy, is looking to bring on a Director of Social Media to head up our social media efforts.
