Vienna, VA (PRWEB) March 18, 2009 -- StartUpHire launched today as the job search engine dedicated to recruiting exceptional talent to jobs at venture capital backed companies. These are some of the most rewarding careers on the planet, but they historically have been difficult to identify. The StartUpHire website, www.startuphire.com, lists thousands of jobs that can be filtered by industry, geography, functional area, investor, and more. Search agents allow users to define a job search and receive emails listing new opportunities matching their criteria.

StartUpHire provides employers with a tool to accelerate team building and makes it easy for those who relish a start-up career to quickly identify opportunities. There is no cost to use the website or to post jobs. Employer participation is restricted to venture capital backed companies which are privately held. Companies and investors can also take advantage of a free widget that allows them to easily add an automatically updated careers section to their own website. For investors, this widget displays all job opportunities across the portfolio. For employers, the widget displays open positions without the need to edit HTML.

Venture capital backed companies make an enormous contribution to US jobs and economic growth. The most recent statistics indicate that companies built with venture investment account for more than 10.4 million U.S. jobs and 18 percent of the U.S. GDP. Today's active venture capital portfolios represent a vibrant hiring engine that is critical to our nation's economic health. StartUpHire provides the most comprehensive listing of these jobs, across all regions and all sectors.

"VC backed companies and their investors have lacked an efficient way to highlight these career opportunities without getting lost in the noise of large recruiting sites," says Steve Fredrick, a spokesperson for StartUpHire and partner at Grotech Ventures. "Fast growing companies often have immediate hiring needs, and this is a terrific platform for these employers to attract talented professionals while leveraging the reputations and brands of their investors."

The website went live in January 2009 and lists more than 10,000 jobs from more than 2,000 venture-backed companies.

"In tough economic times venture-backed companies continue to look for new employees across all industry sectors and in all areas of the country. As these companies consistently outperform their non-ventured counterparts in terms of job creation and revenue growth, they are vital to the recovery and growth of our nation's economy," said Mark Heesen, president of the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA). "StartUpHire is strongly positioned to match skilled workers to the jobs being created at entrepreneurial, emerging growth companies."

StartUpHire was created by people involved in the venture ecosystem. It is not affiliated with any particular VC firm and is designed to benefit the entire industry. The initiative is made possible, in part, through the support of strategic partners including DLA Piper, Comerica Bank, Cooley Godward Kronish, GlobalLogic, Sonnenschein, SIIA, Morrison & Foerster, Calysto, and New Venture Communications.
