A-List is a new tool from AngelList that lets top engineers and designers fast-track their AngelList profile to hundreds of top startups. It offers a super-simple messaging interface that helps you directly find out what startups want to interview you — and then helps you schedule interviews & pass through rounds super quickly.
How It Works:
If you have other questions about the flow, email or chat us any time.
We built an algorithm that selects recently active candidates and gives them a score based on work experience, education, and skills. The A-List team then goes through the candidates with high scores and selects who to invite.
Good question (and you're right — AngelList Talent platform is awesome!)
A-List is by far the fastest way for top engineers and designers to start interviewing with top AngelList companies. We suggest using the AngelList Talent platform as you start thinking about what you might want next -- but to use A-List when you're ready to start interviewing.
Good question. A-List is pretty new, so we're only beta-testing it with candidates who our algorithms suggest are at least 90% qualified for A-List companies' open roles. Your friend may be selected one day — so feel free to have them email us if they are curious or have questions.
A-List currently works with well-funded startups and companies hiring for full-time top software engineering, data science, design, and engineering management opportunities in NYC or the SF Bay Area.
Nope, sorry. Companies can & do use A-List to indicate if they are willing to pay for your preferred salary down the line -- but you won't walk out with “offers” to show your boss. You can check out salary and equity data for thousands of startup jobs on AngelList though — just go to https://angel.co/salaries
It's super easy — just head to alist.co, connect with your AngelList profile and answer a few simple questions about your ideal job preferences.
Note: A-List uses your AngelList profile information instead of a resume, so we recommend polishing it up before making your profile live.
Your profile is live on A-List for up to two weeks. If you need to take your profile down before the two weeks are up, you can also change it in Settings >> Account.
Yes, because A-List message requests will expire in 72 hours (Note: this is partly how A-List connects talent and companies so quickly). Thus, be prepared to check out the company & decide if you're interested — otherwise the company will get auto-rejected.
Nope. We've automatically blocked them for you.
Nope. It's just the beginning of the conversation!
Yes, please ask your A-List point-of-contact in the chat feature!
Of course. But know that A-List is going to be time-consuming, so you may want to try it first before exploring other avenues.
Yes, you'll see the option to reactivate in the chat section!
Companies on A-List are currently only recruiting for full-time, local opportunities. We'll make an announcement when we expand to more flexible roles.
