Working at a technology startup
As competition at big brands continues to rise, more young jobseekers are turning to new, smaller companies.
Startups are expected to grow at an astronomical rate.

One of the most rewarding things about startups is that you can find yourself working with a team
that is highly passionate and enthusiastic.
This can spark inspiration on every level, leading to truly innovative ideas and developments that
can help the business stand out against competitors in the greater industry.
Meetings at startups are minimised, there's a constant emphasis on making the most of every minute
in the day.
(3) Be part of the next big thing
Startups have the potential to grow to an insane level. Imagine working at Google while they were

Even at a lesser scale, to watch a young company become more established opens up so many
experiences to learn and challenge yourself.
(4) Focus on delivering real work rather than office politics
Each contribution from everyone in the team is important and by collective effort products can be
delivered quickly, can respond faster to customer demand and focus is not on pushing
responsibilities and other office politics
