Following an incredible year of rapid, healthy growth, we’re excited to say that readers of Wealthfront’s Silicon Valley Career Guide will find Instart Logic in this year’s Career-Launching Companies List! We’re pleased to join the ranks of companies like Uber, Snapchat, and Twilio, who have all made this list.
Wealthfront is a wealth management company that’s disrupting the broader financial services industry. Each year, Wealthfront publishes a list of “career-launching” companies to complement their Silicon Valley Career Guide. The guide’s purpose is to help those who are early in their career navigate the quagmire of choosing the right company. It focuses on the theory that the best company to begin a career at is one that has found product/market fit but isn’t too big. It recommends job hunters look at fast-growing, mid-stage startups.
The qualifications to make the list can be found in Wealthfront’s blog and include the following:
“To qualify for our list, a company must be privately held, have a current revenue run rate between $20 million and $300 million, and be on a trajectory to grow at a rate in excess of 50% over at least the next three or four years. This year we’re adding a further qualification: the companies must have compelling unit economics.
Selling a product at very low margins can lead to rapid revenue growth, but it doesn’t necessarily imply a great long-term business. We built our list by surveying the partners of the following 14 venture capital firms: Accel Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark, DAG Ventures, Greylock Partners, Index Ventures, Lightspeed, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Matrix Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Ribbit Capital, Sequoia Capital, the Social Capital and Spark Capital.”
For us at Instart Logic, this recognition is a testament to the market opportunity, company growth, caliber of the talent and culture of the organization. We are proud of the kind of company we’re building and it’s great to get the recognition from Wealthfront, in addition to recently being ranked #1 on Business Insider’s list as the Best Startup to Work for in the U.S.!
And guess what… Instart Logic is hiring!
