Non-Technical Startup Jobs NYC

Breaking into the tech startup scene as a non-technical person (marketing, BD, PR, sales, accounts, et al) can be quite difficult and highly luck dependent [1]. There are a finite number of startups and most of them are hiring developers but only a subset are hiring for marketing. As such, I figured I would help point people in the right direction based on who I know is actively hiring at some great startups hear in NYC. If you are looking for an internship make sure you check out my past post on startup internships in NYC.

Below I have listed some featured non-technical openings at NYC startups. If you have any opening in marketing, product, business development, PR, communications, sales or other get in touch.
