About Restless Bandit

Restless Bandit is a well-funded San Francisco startup focused on helping companies identify and retain the best people in the exploding "war-for-talent" space. This is an exciting, near ground floor opportunity with a group of people with extensive experience in HR tech. Our founders were executives at Bright, an HR tech company acquired by LinkedIn for $130M. Our data scientists and engineers come from Bright, LinkedIn, and Google, and have extensive experience applying big-data methods to the hiring domain.

Our Culture:

We work hard, but at the same time we have a laid-back, fun work environment. Some of the values that are important to us are:Helpfulness: we appreciate receiving help as well as giving it, and learning from each other as well as sharing knowledge and opinions

- Professionalism: we trust each other and assume independence and autonomy along with responsibility

- Curiosity: we’re interested in new ideas and alternative viewpoints; we prefer having our minds changed by thoughtful discussion over ‘winning’ a debate

- Calm & thoughtful approach: we believe that consistent, unhurried problem-solving produces better solutions than frantic ‘fire drills’

- Fun: we're thick as thieves. We have lunch together every day, host regular (and spontaneous) happy hours, and participate in professional meet-ups
