Frequently asked questions

What does the community consist of?

The alt:Innovators community consists of two things – a talent network and a Slack channel.

What is the talent network?

The talent network connects you with hiring managers at VC-funded startups. To join, you simply fill out a Google Form that captures your values, interests and work experience.

The information you share – including your contact information – will only ever be shared with hiring managers who are actively recruiting. The entire purpose of the network is to connect you with startups seeking high-quality talent.

What do you mean “values-first” recruiting?

Hiring managers can see the problems that are most important to you and the technologies you are most interested in. This is why startups like hiring from the network, because getting to know someone’s values like this is crucial for determining fit.

What is the Slack channel for?

The Slack channel connects you with other alt:Innovators. We help each other get involved in novel technologies at interesting companies solving the most compelling problems. It’s also a place to collaborate, and spin-off companies and products. Finally, there are opportunities to help grow the community itself.
