Career Information

The startup industry is an opportunity to see an idea come to life in the business world. Because startups often grow rapidly and undergo frequent internal changes, many startups seek creative thinkers and candidates that are willing to wear multiple hats.

There are three stages of a startup: early, expansion, and mature. The early stage is usually a newly developed company. It has little infrastructure, revenue, and staff. The office environment is small, and the opportunities will be very cross functional.

At the expansion stage, a company has found their market fit and is starting to generate revenue and product. The team might be a little larger and roles might be more defined.

The mature stage of a startup is reached when the company is at its most structured. It is growing staff, revenue, and establishes products in increasingly process driven ways. At this stage roles and departments are more defined.
