The Daily Muse, one of our former Tech Cocktail NYC showcased startups that provides career and job advice to women, launched Company Muse in February to give job applicants an inside look into companies.
“A big predictor of whether an employee stays with a company is based on company culture,” Kathryn Minshew, Founder and CEO of The Daily Muse told me. “Company Muse is filling that niche by providing a really deep look into organizations like NPR and Pinterest. We currently have a few hundred thousand active users, and that user base is growing every month.”
That deep dive into organizations comes courtesy of video interviews with employees and information on the workplace and benefits, all with a strong focus on company culture. Profiles run the gamut from Product Manager at large micro-finance nonprofit Kiva, to a Support Engineer at San Francisco-based Twilio, to an awesome number-cruncher at ticket search engine SeatGeek.
The stories behind each employee is even more interesting. Clory Jackson, the woman who runs operations and customer service at healthcare wunderkind ZocDoc used to be an actress. The iOS developer at popular travel search site Hipmunk taught himself to code just a few years ago.
With such robust profiles of companies, Company Muse can really help companies sell themselves to both active job seekers and professionals who are opportunistically open to switching jobs. If you’re in either category, definitely check them out.
