About My Role:
As a full-time, salaried employee of Greylock, I provide free candidate referrals/introductions to our active investments to help them grow/succeed (as one of the many services we provide). Please note: I am not recruiting for any roles within Greylock at this time — only for openings within our portfolio.
More About Me:
For the last 25 years, I have supported thousands of candidates through their startup journey and have helped quite a few people discover great opportunities that not only generated financial wealth (multiple exits) but also created many lasting relationships as well.
If you have a growing desire to make a larger impact, help shape a company’s culture, accelerate your professional growth, or possibly even start your own company someday… I am always available to connect proactively with talented software engineers who are interested in learning more about startup opportunities (now or in the future).
How We Work:
I will contact anyone who looks like a potential match–requesting to schedule a call with you immediately. Once contacted, I’ll explain our VC Recruiting model, spend some time getting to know you better, and discuss various opportunities as well.
Due to the selective nature of this service and the volume of applicants we typically receive from our job postings, a follow-up email will not be sent until a match is identified with one of our investments.
