Go to Jobs to get started. Select "Create Profile" to set up your profile as a candidate. You can then browse through jobs and employers, or search using the filters along the top.
You can indicate your interest, and include a note, with any company that you see. Companies can also indicate their interest in you. If it's a match, you'll both get an email and can continue the conversation via email, the AngelList site, or our mobile app.
When you click Yes/Apply, the startup gets a notification including your full Talent profile.
You can see how your Talent profile looks to startups on the Preview tab. If you've uploaded a résumé, it's included in your profile.
By default, your AngelList profile is publicly visible. However, we will never indicate to your current or former employers and coworkers (as tagged on your profile in your Experience section) that you're looking for a job. You'll never show up in the recruiting searches of a company already associated with your profile and there's no indication anywhere on your profile of your search status.
If you set your status to 'Secretly Looking,' only companies that you say YES/apply to will know you're looking for a job, and your profile will only be accessible to logged-in AngelList users (not search engines or logged-out users).
You can change your profile visibility settings on your privacy settings page.
You choose from your recruiting settings—Either all founders and current team members (as listed on your company's AngelList profile), or just the people you choose. Anyone with permission can post a job, view candidates, and take intros to candidates on behalf of your company.
By default, the person set as the recruiting contact for your company will be notified when candidates express interest in your company. You can also specify which team members receive notifications when you create or edit a job.
When you create or edit a job, you can specify which team members will receive notifications. You can have different people receive notifications only for specific job listings.
Startups are ranked on several algorithmic factors — the quality of your startup profile, your level of activity, and how candidates respond to your startup.
If you'd like to increase your visibility, you should:
Assuming you're logged into an account that has administrative privileges, you can click the "Settings" button at the upper right hand corner of the company profile page. As long as the person you're trying to add has an AngelList account that's confirmed as a part of the company, their name will show up in the dropdown menus for Profile Editor and you can add them there.
To remove someone, go to the same menu, but click the "X" next to their name.
In the recruiting flow, at angel.co/candidates, click "Jobs." The dropdowns next to each position will allow you to delete or unpublish a position.
AngelList is a double opt in. A company says "Yes" to a candidate or vice versa and then the other party is sent a notification. The other party then has the option to respond. If they're interested and click "Yes" again, then a match is made. The company/candidate will be found under the Matches tab and an introduction email is sent to both parties to facilitate communication between them.
Once that happens, either party can reply to the email and it will go to the candidate or the recruiter from the company.
At this time, the number of outstanding applications a candidate can have are limited. As they expire or are processed, you'll be able to apply to more jobs. We encourage candidates to take the time to understand the company and be selective with their applications, instead of openly applying to every job out there.
Ultimately this improves the experience for both sides - companies will get higher quality applications and candidates will be more likely to get a timely response.
