  • Generous employee stock options with an attractive strike price
  • Unlimited vacation
  • Unique culture: Humans first, unicorn dreams second 
  • Healthcare & co-working allowance
  • Leadership impact in the product and business as one of the first 20 employees vs. cog in the machine

About Getro

Getro is on a mission to become the platform of choice for making and receiving professional introductions by combining technology and empathy. 

That’s nice, what do you do, though? 

We have two products:

  • GetroJobs, which automatically aggregates open jobs across a network of companies and;
  • GetroNetwork, which allows talent (active and passive searchers) and companies to find one another, facilitating introductions and referrals within networks. 

Together our products provide all of the quality that comes from a referral vs hundreds of faceless Linkedin profiles, with a UX that is built for employers, not recruiters, and doing away with all of the emailing, calls, and reminders that usually go into a referral request.

Our customers

Our customers include over 400 independent professional networks — like venture capital funds (Union Square Ventures), accelerators (TechStars), membership communities (Women 2.0), government associations (Techleap.nl), universities (University of Toronto), and more. They use our software to make better introductions for their community members, measure the outcomes of their intros, and in some cases, make money. 

Getro’s secret sauce

  • Strong financials: $2M+ in revenue, $4M in seed financing to grow 
  • 430 paying customers 
  • Experts in the space: Our co-founders have been working together in the recruiting space for the last 10 years
  • Remote-first company, from 2018 (before it was cool) 
  • 16 team members across 7 countries 
  • Techstars 2017 graduates
  • Our values are our north star; check out Getro.org (a network we set up in 2020 to help people get back to work after COVID-19)
  • As a fully remote company, we don't have offices, but we do get together virtually and in person for company summits (before the pandemic: Germany, Cape Town, San Francisco...) 

How we work

We're ambitious, but realistic - we know anything worth doing takes time. We trust each member of our team to work when they wish, and from a location they choose. We believe in working smarter, not harder - we don't value presentee-ism and we're not impressed by long working hours. Above all, we value the contribution of each individual and take seriously our responsibility to enable you to work on things you love. These aren't just words - they're part of everything we do, including how we design our products.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
