Why work for a startup?

A tech startup is an early stage, high growth company competing in the technology sphere.  Here are some reasons that a job at a startup could be awesome for you:

Learn By Doing  Working at a startup typically involves a ton of on-the-job learning. Challenge yourself in a fast-moving and changing environment!  A small company can give you the opportunity to be more of a “jack-of-all-trades” and gain experience doing many different tasks.  Learn something new everyday from a small team of passionate and intelligent startup geeks who can inspire you to do something new and different!

Work With An Awesome Team   At a startup, you will often be surrounded by a high concentration of smart and interesting people who love to experiment, innovate, and make new things.  Feel like an integral part of the team and find some awesome mentors who can help you in and outside the workplace.  Many times at a smaller company you also get the opportunity to learn from and interact with higher level management on a closer level.

Make An Impact  As a member of a smaller team your work will stand out and make a greater impact.  Challenge yourself to take on more responsibility and feel like what you do matters!

Have Fun  Join the Boston startup community -full of fun and passionate hustlers who love what they do!  Enjoy becoming friends and working closely with your small team while dressing casually for work.  The work is serious, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be dull.  The BCVC has seen their fair share of nerf guns, ping pong tournaments, and ridiculous T-shirts.
