A-List is a new tool from AngelList that invites top engineers, designers, product managers, and salespeople, to fast-track their AngelList profile to hundreds of top startups that are hiring in the San Francisco Bay area, Greater New York City area, and now Los Angeles (engineers only).
A-List offers a simple, easy-to-navigate interface, messaging, and instant scheduling feature to surface and connect you to start-ups interested in your profile. A-List then helps you quickly and efficiently schedule interviews and pass through rounds.
We automatically block your current employer from seeing your A-List profile so you can get pitched to with discretion.
If you have any questions, please chat us on A-List.
Instead of applying to jobs, A-List candidates will create one profile and then get pitched to by top companies in the Bay Area, NYC, and LA.
We qualify both A-List companies and A-List candidates to ensure a successful experience for both sides.
1. Go to https://alist.co/candidates
2. Apply with or without an AngelList account by uploading a resume and answering some simple questions about your personal preferences concerning your search parameters (ideal salary, when you want your profile to be live, etc). If you make a profile using your AngelList account, some information will sync to your new A-List account.
3. Once you're live, you'll receive direct messages in your A-List inbox from companies that are interested in you. Reply to the message thread to start a conversation OR decline the request to interview.
4. Set up interviews and move through the application process quickly.
5. Land an amazing new job at a start-up! Let us know when you accept an offer, and we will send you some limited-edition AngelList swag.✌
We built an algorithm that selects candidates who were recently active on AngelList and assigns them a score based on their work experience, skills, and education. The A-List team then reviews potential A-List candidates with high scores and selects who to invite.
A-List candidates are culled from our algorithms that suggest they are at least 90% qualified for the open roles that A-List companies are hiring for.
Nope! There is no fee for candidates to use A-List.
Nope! We invite candidates to A-List based on skills, experience, and readiness for new opportunities. Once candidates are accepted onto the platform, it will be up to companies to move candidates through the rest of their hiring processes.
A-List works with well-funded start-ups and companies (that can offer high-growth opportunities) that are hiring for top full-time software engineering, data science, design, engineering management, sales, and product management opportunities in the SF Bay Area, NYC, and LA.
For each of your past roles, we recommend adding a few highlights that summarize what you did and what you accomplished in that role. We suggest doing this in about 3-4 bullet points and within around 500 characters.
For engineering candidates, we also recommend adding 3-5 technologies, tools or technical skills you used in that role. This will enable us to better highlight your experience to recruiters searching specifically for those skills.
Your A-List profile is live for up to 4 weeks at which point your profile will automatically expire. This is to ensure that the profiles we feature are active accounts. If you want to extend your time on A-List, no need to worry! Just re-activate your account.
If you need to take your profile down before the 4 weeks are up, you can do so in your account settings.
The sooner you reply, the better! This is partly how A-List is able to connect talent to companies so quickly. Be prepared to check out the company and decide if you're interested. Otherwise, the company will get auto-rejected after 1 week.
Nope. Clicking 'yes' is just the beginning of the conversation!
Though your AngelList profile details will sync to your A-List profile initially, any edits thereafter will not sync.
Yes! Please use the chat feature and ask your A-List rep to change when your profile is live.
Yes! The option to reactivate is located in the chat section.
Not at the moment. A-List companies currently recruit for full-time, local opportunities only. We'll announce when we expand to more flexible roles!
Great question (and you're right—the AngelList Talent platform is awesome)!
A-List is by far the fastest and most efficient platform for engineers/designers/sales people/pms to begin their job search with the top AngelList companies. We suggest using A-List only when you're ready to start interviewing and AngelList talent platform when you are only browsing and/or just starting to see what you might want for your next opportunity.
Of course! Just know that it is up to you to respond to companies within a set amount of time or conversations will expire. We recommend setting aside time to review company pitches on A-List before reverting to other job sources.
Nope, sorry. Companies can indicate through A-List whether they are willing to pay your preferred salary down the line—but you will not walk out with “offers” to show your boss.
However, you can check out our salary and equity data compiled from thousands of start-up jobs on AngelList to see where you stand.
