After a lot of thoughtful conversation and hard work from the team, I’m incredibly excited to announce PeopleFirstJobs.com. It’s a new kind of job board, focused on helping job seekers find companies who put people first.
As we’ve watched funded, growth-at-all-cost companies get all the attention (and admiration) in the job market, Natalie and I want to bring more awareness to companies like ours — team-centric, profit-focused, and sustainable for the long run.
More and more people are searching for a place where they can do incredible work at a reasonable pace, with a team that cares deeply about their success and craft. The problem is, we don’t hire often and don’t always have an opening. Instead of turning them away, we want to create a list of like-minded companies who have job openings.
A new kind of job board
We believe that most job boards have it wrong. Instead of searching for a role, you should seek out a company.
People First Jobs will include a comprehensive list of companies who put people first. These companies realize that businesses exist to support the human beings around them. These are ambitious companies who optimize people over profits while continuing to grow and innovate. While we don’t share all of the same characteristics, we embrace the principles of putting people first.
When we launch in early 2020, companies can get listed as People First for free, and individual job listings will be fee-based. We’re hoping to evolve this, so even if companies do not have openings, you can subscribe and get notified when they do.
In the meantime, subscribe to get notified on launch day.
Help us find more companies!
We have an amazing group of initial supporters who we’ve come to respect over the years — Buffer, Balsamiq, Zapier, Doist, Wistia, Ghost, and Seer. We know there are many more, and we want to include all of them.
Keep in mind, People First companies are not limited to tech or SaaS. If you know of People First companies, please share and have them fill out our form to get involved.
