I'm Mr. Shark, the StartupJobs mascot. Thanks for stopping by!
As the senior chondrichthian in our office, it's my pleasure to offer a warm welcome and introduce you to our site.
We’ll take it in chronological order.
StartupJobs was founded in 2012. People speculated that this was to be the last year in human history, so Filip said to himself: "Well, better now than never!" and got started on making StartupJobs a reality.
Equipped with only a logo and an idea, Filip presented his concept to the entire Czech startup community on stage at Lucerna. He explained that he was working on a website aimed at connecting startups with job-seeking professionals (who would love to come work for them). The site then launched in a little over a week.
Now, there was no turning back. Programmed in just 12 days, the first version of StartupJobs successfully launches and attracts its very first candidate.
Surprisingly, the Earth is still spinning, and StartupJobs is growing. The successor to the British throne is born and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is in the cinemas. At StartupJobs, companies continue to publish their job offers as candidates continue to apply.
The average number of candidates per offer is four times higher than the previous year.
In the end of 2013, you can find about 160 active offers on StartupJobs.
The most popular roles are from IT.
2014 was the year of crystallography. I’m not sure what that means, but I do know this year we jumped to over 2000 job offers on StartupJobs.
The average number of candidates per offer is now nine times higher than a year ago.
Data shows that most candidates reply to job offers on Mondays. Coincidence?
In the movie, The Martian, Matt Damon plays a man who's left alone on a deserted planet. Fortunately, Filip is far from alone, as there are now eleven employees working for StartupJobs.
Our blog is now full of interesting articles about startup culture. More than 58% of users found startups more interesting after reading articles about the industry.
We discover several game-changing companies with great ideas (which we believe can change the world).
In 2016, skill tests were added to StartupJobs. Since, more than 23,526 job seekers have participated (equal to the number of citizens in Gibraltar).
Wow! StartupJobs reaches over a million visitors in a year!
The average number of views for an offer is 1,312.
StartupJobs celebrates its 5th birthday. During the celebration, Filip announces his exciting new plans to expand StartupJobs to more countries.
You can find more than 700 active offers on StartupJobs.
In 2017 we changed the lives of over 2500 candidates who found their dream jobs on StartupJobs. Many of the candidates found careers in marketing.
New year = new challenges! At the beginning of 2018, we launched StartupJobs.pl in Poland. Our next adventure was well on its way!
More than 900 active offers can now be found on StartupJobs.
Can you say, "adventure?" After six years of tough negotiations, Filip finally acquires StartupJobs.com, continuing our mission of becoming the best startup job portal on the planet!
Anchors aweigh! We are moving to our new shark offices! Although we did like the original ones, we needed more space because of our growing team.
At the beginning of June, we redesigned the website and deployed a new system, so it became a bit easier for companies and candidates to find their way around the startup sea.
StartupJobs celebrates its 7th birthday and countless successes! The biggest one undoubtedly being that in 2019, we helped over 4,500 people find a new job - mostly in IT and marketing fields.
Editors of our StartupJobs Newsroom write at the speed of light, and in 2019 they publish 347 articles on startups, technology, business and innovation.
We are riding a successful wave of the previous year and, among other things, we are getting our own ISSN for StartupJobs Newsroom!
After the arrival of coronavirus into the Czech waters, we switched to the remote mode and started to think hard about how to save not only StartupJobs, but also all those affected by the crisis.
We are launching our new project - BezPráce.cz, where experienced HR experts help people who lost their job because of a pandemic. All for free.
StartupJobs Newsroom celebrates its 2nd birthday! Also, we are introducing our new educational section.
Despite the circumstances, 2020 was a success! We’ve gained a 10% growth during the year. Moreover, 19,000 people have already found a new job thanks to StartupJobs since its establishment in 2012.
New year = new beginning! We are planning new projects, scattering nets and expanding our shark team with 4 new reinforcements. Get ready for this ride!
It's February 2021 and sharks can be seen all over Prague. We are launching our first outdoor campaign with creatives in the subway, on the tram and in several streets of Prague.
We are starting our new StartupJobs Marketplace. A place where can startups and other companies find verified experts from various areas, which can positively affect their business.
Hello, are we on air? Welcome to our first episode of StartupJobs podcast SharkTalk, which brings interviews with people who change the world with their work and ideas.
Did anyone say "expansion"? Mr. Shark sure did! Therefore, he is now looking around the Romanian market - and several more markets are planned.
How do the most interesting Czech startups work and how do their founders, co-founders or employees think? Thanks to the SharkTalk podcast, you can now get a behind-the-scenes look at CDN77, Applifting, WeBoard or FlashNews. And recording definitely doesn't end there.
The number of sharks is growing and the capacity of the offices is not enough anymore. Therefore, we are starting their reconstruction and look forward to meeting you in the new Shark Bay.
... and what's next? Let’s see what the time brings!
