Finding your first job in tech, according to traditional wisdom, is the hardest. While getting your resume/portfolio in order is important, one of the bigger bottlenecks is simply finding enough companies who hire technical talent with no work experience.

To help, we've put together this list of companies hiring for technical roles who accept applicants with no prior work experience. The jobs here include the full breadth of software engineering roles, as well as other technical fields, such as data science.

All of these jobs are either in the US or Europe, while some offer remote work. Additionally, while all of these companies hire applicants with no work experience, this does not necessarily mean they have no barriers to entry. Some of these roles (machine learning roles, for example) may have knowledge requirements, while others may require certain credentials, like a CS degree. Check the guidelines for any role before applying.

Also note that these listings reflect live data. Companies may alter jobs/update details. We'll do our best to make sure things are up-to-date.

Finally, here's some slightly broader job search advice. While there are no doubt many roles that fit you in this collection, you shouldn't feel limited to only applying to jobs in this collection—or to only applying to jobs with "junior" in their title, for that matter. According to AngelList data, the average engineer with 0 years of experience lands their first job in a role "requiring" more than 1 year of work experience.

15 Fast-Growing Startups To Join After FAANG

In terms of total compensation, FAANG-sized (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google) companies are among the best in the world. If you want job security and the highest possible salary, there's nowhere better than a Big-N tech company. <br /><br /> However, thousands of people leave FAANG companies for startups every year, for a variety of reasons. Often, they leave because they want: <br /><br /> - A role where they can have a bigger impact on the company. - A chance to work with a new, cutting edge technology. - To be an early employee (and equity owner) at the next tech giant. <br /><br /> To get a better understanding of why people leave FAANG companies—and what they're looking for in their next roles—we collaborated with [Blind](, a trusted online community where 2.8M+ verified professionals anonymously share advice, provide honest feedback, and discover relevant career information. <br /><br /> After comparing Blind data with AngelList's startup data, we noticed an interesting trend around people who leave FAANG companies for startups: They tend to join the same companies. <br /><br /> In fact, we've found that there is a small subset of startups, spanning all stages of fundraising and sectors of technology, that consistently recruit talent away from the top tech companies. <br /><br /> Below, we've listed the top 15 startups people are leaving FAANG companies for—all of which you can apply to on AngelList today. <br /><br /> To curate this list, we analyzed [Blind's data]( on which companies FAANG employees most frequently search for, AngelList's data on which startups hire the most former FAANG employees, and more AngelList data on which startups are growing the fastest.
