Frequently Asked Questions

You probably have some questions, we’ve got answers.


  • What does being an “engineering” student mean?
    You are majoring in one of the following subjects: Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, or you went to a coding school.
  • Why are you engineering only?
    At Jumpstart, we believe doing a large amount of good for a small number of people is better than the opposite. By being engineering only, we’re able to truly understand our users and help them reach their goals with our decades of industry tech recruiting experience.

    Even better. We’ll get you set up to succeed with internship matches and advice throughout your entire college career.

  • Is it available for every school?
    Equal opportunity means a lot to us because talent is everywhere. So yes, every school in North America can sign up. We’re coming for you international folks too.

    University partnerships give your students priority access and guided success on the Jumpstart platform. Plus it’s free and we handle all the onboarding. Please reach out to to get started.

About Jumpstart

  • Why did you start Jumpstart?
    The team at Jumpstart all share a similar passion: we want to help people live fulfilling lives and drive diversity initiatives in tech. With the average person spending 35% of their waking hours at work, enjoying your career is a huge part of that. It is a sad reality that over 80% of Americans report to be dissatisfied with their job and diversity in general is a colossal problem in tech. We’re building tools, resources and a community for students and companies to discover each other easier than ever before based on passions, values, strengths, and experiences.
  • Who is your team?
    Check the team out on LinkedIn.
  • What makes you different?
    It’s tough to write a concise answer to this so we’ll go ahead and list some below:
    We are built and advised by recruiters from some of the most well respected tech firms. Check them out here.
    We don’t just match you to companies, we match you to specific recruiters at the company so you have a direct contact.
    We get you noticed by big tech companies as well as really awesome companies that you may have never heard of.
    We built and tested Jumpstart with the help of over 150 product advisors from 40+ universities just like yours to make sure it works. It did.
    You sign up once and get matches from a variety of companies throughout your entire college career for both internships and recent grad jobs. No experience necessary.
    We get smarter and provide opportunities that are more tailored to your interests as you reject and accept opportunities.
    Not only will we get you an interview, we’ll help you prep for it.
    We don’t just want to find you a job that you are good at, we want to find you a job with an environment and culture you’ll thrive at.
  • Can I get a job with Jumpstart?
    Yes, we are hiring students who’d like to be involved in any of our data, design, product or development teams. If you are interested send a resume to or even better, join the platform and see if you get matched to us.

How it Works

  • How does it work?
    Step 1: One 10 minute sign up where we get to know your values, interests and strengths. No resumes, one application.
    Step 2: We make intelligent matches using unique data sets and ML to get you noticed without biased considerations and actually give you feedback throughout the process.
    Step 3: You connect directly with recruiters and engineers at the right companies for you, set up interviews and crush them with personalized prep from our expert team.
  • Does it cost money?
    No, it’s totally free for students.
  • When will it be live?
    Priority access will be available at the end of December 2017.
  • Will it be mobile?
    Of course, the UI will be pretty functional too.
  • Can I get help with interviews?
    No doubt. We’ve collected quite a bit of data from hundreds of students and companies. We’ll send you useful pieces of advice for you to crush your interviews once they are scheduled and you can set up time to chat with any one of our recruiting experts for additional help at anytime.
  • How can you guarantee matches?
    We have a decade long relationship with a lot of the companies on the platform and 100+ years of recruiting experience on our advisory board from leading tech firms. Connecting students to opportunity is our passion and we’re pretty good at it too.
  • What does it mean when you say “no interview?”
    If we don’t get you an interview in the first year we will buy you as much Chipotle as you want for an entire month. What do you have to lose?
  • Which tech companies will be on the platform?
    Currently we have about 200 companies and it’s our goal to have 400+ by early 2018.
  • Why do companies join your platform?
    We send them qualified candidates that will be great at the job they are hiring for and love the environment and culture just as much. This lowers cost of hiring and attrition rates while increasing conversions from internship to full-time hire. Instead of going through thousands of resumes, they’ll now only get a small number so you’ll have a much better chance of getting noticed.


  • How long will the sign up take?
    About 15 minutes.
  • Who can see my profile and data?
    Unlike other platforms, your peers can’t see your profile. Only recruiters and engineers from the companies you want to work at can see it after you’ve been matched.
  • What do you do with my data?
    We respect your privacy and do not tolerate spam. We will never sell, rent, lease or give away your information (name, email, etc.) to any third party. Nor will we send you unsolicited emails.
  • What does priority access mean?
    Due to the level of interest Jumpstart has received, we want to focus on giving each student the level of service they deserve. This means priority access will be given to the top 500 students who refer the most friends. We’ll let more students in on a rolling basis every month.
  • Why is there a waiting list?
    Guaranteeing interviews is no small feat. To follow through with our word, we are focusing on quality over quantity and only releasing to a few thousand students a month. This will help us make sure that every single person has their career Jumpstarted on our platform, including you. Early bird gets the worm.
  • Will everyone have immediate access?
    No. We want to provide a personalized, world class experience to everyone that finds a job or connection through Jumpstart. We will be releasing the product on a first come, first serve basis so everyone can get the experience they deserve. So sign up early!
  • What happens if I don’t like Chipotle
    Totally understood, it’s not for everyone. You can choose something comparable.
  • I’m an employer. How do I signup?
