Applicants fill out an application with their background and experience. Next, Y Combinator companies browse through applications and start a conversation with people they are interested in.
You don't need to apply for a specific job or company.
When you fill out an application, we make it available to startups that Y Combinator has funded.
If a company is interested in your application, they'll contact you.
After you complete your profile, you can also browse our directory of all jobs and apply to them directly.
If it's in our directory, you can apply directly. We still encourage you to share your application with other companies. Y Combinator funds a lot of companies; there may be others working on something similar...or something totally different that you've not yet considered.
Most do but not all. If you want to reach a YC company that's not in our directory yet, you should apply directly on their own website.
For our initial launch, we're focusing our efforts on software engineering roles.You can browse the whole list of YC Jobs below. We will add support for additional roles once we're confident we've found a viable solution for both applicants and YC companies.
