The Launch of A Happy Job

Today my co-founder and I are launching the product we’ve been working on for months. 

A Happy Job is a team-based and culture-centric recruiting platform. 

A Happy Job is a place where engineers can find teams that are actively hiring and fit their preferences. You can search by product type, tech stack, team culture, remote-friendliness or perks — no need to sign up. If you’d like, you can answer a short questionnaire and get matched with the best engineering teams. Matching is based on intangible factors that really matter such as culture, working styles, team set-up, and values.

Research backs up the idea that people are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs, be promoted, and are less likely to quit or be fired if they work at companies that share their values. We want to help more people find their happy jobs and make the intangible information about team culture and values more easily available.

In this first version of our product, we mostly focus on company-level information that is otherwise hard to research. As we grow, we’ll be adding more detail about individual hiring teams and managers. Sign-up to get updates about new companies added to the platform and be the first to apply:

Hiring Engineers?

Around 50% of new startup hires are gone in two years. Companies in the SF Bay Area pay 20–30% of the new hire salary to recruiters and still struggle to attract and retain their employees. The best way to differentiate yourself from Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Google is to share your unique team culture. Showcase your team to attract, convert, and retain top engineers who care about your team’s values.

We’ll also appreciate any introductions to US-based engineering team leaders (Directors of Engineering, VP of Engineering, etc) who are actively hiring and could be interested in showcasing their team on our platform.

Interested but Not an Engineer?

Looking for a non-engineering job? We plan to expand our offering to product managers, marketing people, designers, and other roles. Get notified here:


Only 48% of employees are completely satisfied with their jobs. At least part of the reason is that people apply to, interview with, and join the wrong companies and teams that were not a good fit for them to begin with. We believe that the future of recruiting is team-based and culture-centric. You can learn more here:
