Weave Hiring Event FAQ

We’re excited to host our first Virtual Event connecting great startups in San Francisco with great engineers. The event starts this Thursday, December 4th at 8am inside the app. To maximize the value of the event, we put together a list of tips and frequently asked questions.

Engineers

What do I need to do before the event?
Increase the likelihood of employers swiping yes by including a brief description of the role you’re interested in and what you can offer. Profiles without a blurb won’t be shown to employers so make sure to write one!

What does a great blurb look like?
Great blurbs are typically composed of the following:

  1. The type of company (early, late stage, etc.) you’re interested in
  2. The space (ecommerce, bitcoin, etc.) you’re interested in
  3. A brief summary of your expertise (iOS, Rails, etc.)

Most employers will assume you’re looking for full-time positions and you’re able to legally work in the United States so if either isn’t true, add that to your blurb too.

Here’s an example:

Looking for a full-time startup engineering role with specific interest in ecommerce. 5-year iOS mobile dev experience.

What will employers see?
Employers will see your blurb and your profile imported from LinkedIn.

What do I need to do during the event?
Open the Weave iOS app while the event is live from Thursday, December 4th at 8am until Friday, December 5th at 8am. Access the event via the overlay that appears when you open the app or through the menu in the middle of the navigation bar.

Once you’re in the event, you’ll be shown startups looking to hire, swipe left or right like normal.

How long do I have to respond to employers?
As long as you want. Only the swiping inside the event is temporary. Matches are permanent.

Will you allow non-US based engineers into the event?
Yes, as long as you’re willing to relocate or work remotely. Please add this to your blurb so it’s clear to employers.

What if I’m not looking for an engineering role in SF?
This event is specifically for engineering positions at San Francisco based startups. If you’re not interested in those types of positions or aren’t an engineer, email brian@weave.in and we’ll remove you from the event.

There will be future events for other types of roles and cities, so don’t worry.

Where can I get more information?
If you have any other questions or run into any issues during the event, emailbrian@weave.in.

Employers

What do I need to do before the event?
Increase the likelihood of candidates swiping right on you by updating your blurb to reflect the type of candidate you’re looking for and background on your company. Employers with empty blurbs won’t be shown to candidates so make sure to write yours!

What does a great blurb look like?
Think of the blurb like a 200 character job posting. Great blurbs are typically composed of the following:

  1. Brief description of what your company does
  2. What you’re looking for (iOS, Rails, etc.)
  3. Why they should want to work there

Most candidates will assume you’re looking for full-time positions so specify otherwise.

Here’s an example of a great blurb:

Looking for a full-time director of engineering with iOS/Android and Rails experience. We’re 5 (awesome/fun) startup veterans attacking the bitcoin space.

What if I have multiple job openings?
Be creative and try to fit it into the 200 character blurb limit.

What do I need to do during the event?
Open the Weave iOS app while the event is live from Thursday, December 4th at 8am until Friday, December 5th at 8am. Access the event via the overlay that appears when you open the app or through the menu in the middle of the navigation bar.

Once you’re in the event, you’ll be shown startups looking to hire, swipe left or right like normal.

Can we have multiple recruiters on this app for this event?
We’d appreciate it if you limit it to two per company.

How long do I have to respond to candidates?
As long as you want. Only the swiping inside the event is temporary. Matches are permanent.

What if I’m not hiring for engineering roles in SF?
This event is specifically for engineering positions at San Francisco based startups. If you’re not hiring for those positions or aren’t in San Francisco, emailbrian@weave.in and we’ll remove you from the event.

There will be future events for other types of roles and cities, so don’t worry.

Is there any cost associated with this event?
None, it’s completely free. We’re just excited to see if we can connect great candidates with great startups.

Where can I get more information?
If you have any other questions or run into any issues during the event, just email brian@weave.in.
