To recruit engineers from a company like Facebook, a startup needs to be pretty exciting.

Engineers at so-called "Big N" companies (the Facebook's and Google's of the world) make the best salaries in the industry, and for them, joining a startup almost invariably means taking a pay cut. Because of this, when an engineer leaves Facebook, it's typically for another tech giant that can offer similar compensation.

However, after looking at AngelList data, there are some startups successfully recruiting Facebook engineers. While these companies may not yet have the brand name of Facebook, they clearly have something figured out, and engineers are taking notice.

If you're an engineer at a tech giant—or are just looking for a potential rocketship to join—take a moment to review these companies. You can apply to all of them today on AngelList.
