Handshake: the place to start, restart, or jumpstart YOUR career

By Garrett Lord

The New Year is a time when many of us reconsider our priorities and our lives, particularly around our careers.

You may be asking yourself: Where can I derive purpose from my work and be part of a mission that’s bigger than myself? Where can I grow personally, and in my career? Where can I surround myself with people who will support me and push me to be the best version of myself? Where can I join a company that’s thinking *big*?

Today, I’m excited to share that Handshake has raised an additional $200 million through our Series F round, valuing the company at $3.5 billion, to help everyone start, restart or jumpstart their career. You can read more about our fundraise here.

This is a very exciting moment for Handshake - this gives us more resources to achieve our mission to democratize access to opportunity for millions of people worldwide by bringing together every employer and every education provider.

It’s an exciting moment for our team of 500 who are committed to building a transformational, long-term high-growth business that can also impact the lives of millions and billions of people.

Hopefully, this is also an exciting moment for YOU. Handshake is hiring hundreds of people across all parts of our business. We’re committed to helping our learners and employees transform their careers and flourish amidst a global pandemic. As you reconsider YOUR personal priorities and your career, please consider joining our team.

You’ll work with world-class leaders who have built some of the most iconic companies in the world, like Valerie Capers Workman from Tesla, Malthe Sigurdsson from Stripe and Deepak Kumar from LinkedIn.

You’ll have the ability to grow your career from individual contributors into leaders like Jordan Pedraza, Mallory Wheaton, Eddie Tavarez and Lydia Nash have done.

You’ll be working on a product that has real impact with students like Paola Ibarra from University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley, Arpita Gaggar from Emory University, Kavita Vijayan from University of California - Berkeley, and customers ranging from GE to the LA Dodgers to your local public school system.

And you’ll be building a huge global business that’s doubling revenue annually, approaching $100m in ARR, and on a path to be a global, independent public company by helping students build meaningful relationships with employers and skills for today’s most in-demand careers.

We’re hiring from CMO to entry-level SDRs, from Engineering VPs to Design Managers, from Product Marketers to Relationship Managers. Whatever team, function or role, we’re looking for the highest-performing, hardest-working, most committed team members to help us transform the way anyone navigates their career.
