Online startup job platforms and communities

Stockholm's vibrant tech scene has a very dynamic job market and therefore a number of online platforms, national and international, dedicated to matching companies and candidates.

Sweden-based platforms

The Hub

The platform is free to use for all parties and can help your startup with recruitment, raising capital, and accessing best practice tools such as templates and guides.

Included.Works offers crowdsourced tech hiring with revenue share extending outside your company's referral scheme, which facilitates increased diversity. The platform lets registered users recommend former co-workers for jobs and rewards them for successful referrals.
