What you would do: Data entry isn’t the sexiest of jobs, but at HobbyDB you’d be entering a wide variety of data — so things shouldn’t get too monotonous.

Why you want the job: HobbyDB is a Techstars graduate that is going places. As they continue their meteoric growth, there is probably going to be some room for you to grow as well. Even if that doesn’t happen, their name on your CV looks great to other employers.

Sales Operations Associate at LogRhythm

What you would do: You would be processing a ton of sales orders — that means taking the order, entering the data and everything else inbetween.

Why you want the job: LogRhythm is a leading security intelligence software company, which is like working at a privately run, techie version of the CIA. You could be a tech savvy Sterling Archer.

Who they’re looking for: Someone with two years of experience working in a process-oriented role that can operate a Window’s machine.
