Meet the team

Emily Kramer and Deva Hazarika have deep experience growing startups and connecting people to startup jobs. Collectively, we’ve interviewed hundreds of candidates. We're currently in the early-stages of starting a company, but we started this initiative during COVID to help people navigate the job search process.

Emily has built marketing teams from the ground up at Carta, Asana, Astro (acquired by Slack), and Ticketfly. Emily enjoys developing brands, testing and scaling growth initiatives, and hiring and managing teams. She's also passionate about helping women and underrepresented people in tech become leaders—she volunteers with All Raise and launched the
Table Stakes initiative at Carta to help close the gender equity gap.

Deva has founded, built, and advised multiple tech startups. In 2014, he founded Opstarts and raised seed funding and launched operational planning SaaS solution. He was a Board Member at UrbanMapping and TransactTools through their acquisitions, and founded ClearContext and Moai Technologies.
