Backlog: The best way to manage your projects. Wiki, tasks, files all in one place. This is like taking good parts of JIRA and Trello, combined into one tool. You can start for free.

Square: You might have already used Square before – but the company offers a wide range of payment solutions to get your business off the ground, from card payment to invoice to ecommerce.

Business idea “StroyJob”: Get Hired through Insider Stories.

Problem

Today, job searches are diversified in many ways; job boards, recruiters, referrals are popular options.

However, none of them offers a deep insight into company culture (which is one of the most important information).

Validation 

There’re cool companies trying to solve the issue. For instance, Key Values introduces engineering jobs with core values at featured companies. [1] You can see what teams care about; diversity, EQ, data-driven, etc.

Solution

StoryJob takes a similar yet different approach. It is a website that interviews companies on unique stories from success/failure to challenges/vision. Usually, these are done with the CEOs, but StoryJob features hiring managers so readers can see what day-to-day work looks like.

Competition

Unlike other job boards, StoryJob isn’t just about open positions. It’s a great reading itself and offers independent perspectives you can’t see anywhere else. Readers can avoid onboarding to a company they feel mismatched.

Business Model

StoryJob generates advertising revenue and promoted articles, targeting 5-10K / post.
