Sam Altman (President of Y Combinator) and Justin Kan (4-time startup founder, and former YC Partner) will give keynote talks on what it’s like to work at a startup. How can you tell whether a startup would be good to work for? How much salary and equity should you expect from startups at different stages? What's the work like at different types of startups? We'll answer all these types of questions.
We'll begin with a presentation that explains what you need to know about working for a startup. Then we'll have series of rapid-fire presentations by YC-funded companies currently hiring engineers. After the event, we'll have an open house where you can talk one on one with the founders of any company that interested you.
Companies building hardware will have live demos of their products. Starsky Robotics will demo a full-size self-driving truck. Astranis is bringing a real satellite. Reach Labs will demo long-range wireless power transmission.
The event is free, but since we expect more engineers will want to attend than we have room for, we're asking would-be attendees to apply by filling out a profile. Even if you don’t end up coming to the event, you can use your profile to apply online to most YC-funded companies.Apply to attend
