Introducing Purpose Jobs 3.0: The Next Evolution in Purpose At Work

Introducing Purpose Jobs 3.0: The Next Evolution in Purpose At Work

Whether you’ve been with us for six days or six years, allow us to reintroduce ourselves. 

Hi! We’re Purpose Jobs, the largest community of purpose-driven professionals and companies. 

We strongly believe that the most powerful thing we have to give is our time, so let’s dedicate it to doing something that matters. 

We started in Detroit in 2017 on a mission to help people discover purpose-driven work opportunities that align with their values. We were singularly focused on the startup and tech community in Detroit. 

Soon after, we noticed that the same tech boom in our city was also happening in cities like Columbus, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and across the Midwest region. So we expanded to become the Midwest’s largest startup and tech community. 

Today, we’re doubling down on our commitment to purpose by expanding our reach even further to include purpose-driven tech companies nationwide. 

While our roots remain in the Midwest, we’re excited to apply our local community approach to help underserved hubs across the country. 

We’ve made some changes in support of our new approach: 

  1. New sense of purpose
  2. Fresh website 
  3. First-of-its-kind job board with 3,000+ purposeful jobs
  4. Modern take on job searching

Each of these is a reflection of our re-commitment to purpose, and we can’t wait to tell you more about them. 


Our new sense of purpose

We’re on a mission to help people find a sense of belonging at work.

While this has been a part of our vision since day one, today we’re increasing access to purpose-driven jobs nationwide.

Find a mission you care about, work for a company that supports your growth, find an opportunity that allows you time to pursue your passions, find your community … whatever you seek, Purpose Jobs is here for you.


Welcome home

You’ll notice some changes to our homepage — and our entire website. We’ve updated our look to be clean and simplified, placing purpose, values, culture and community front and center. 

Jobs, people, and stories that hold purpose at the heart of everything are right here at your fingertips.

Our URL hasn’t changed, but you will find some new pages to help you get to where you want to be: Slack community, Purpose Studios, companies, and, of course, our brand new job board.


Largest, first-of-its-kind job board with 3,000+ new jobs

Using new technology, we’re curating the top mission-driven startup and tech jobs in our region (and beyond). 

Companies that you’ve come to know and love through us are still featured, in addition to hundreds more purpose-driven companies. 

purpose job board

We have over 3,000 startup and tech jobs on our job board, and that number is only growing. Located in cities across the Midwest, as well as fully remote opportunities, these companies and their jobs have been vetted by our team, to make sure they align with the values our community is looking for: mission-oriented, people-first, and culture-forward. 

The technology, powered by Getro (thank you, Evan Walden and the entire team), allows you to easily filter the job board with your preferences, and jobs are updated daily to pull the most accurate information.


Values-based job search

In addition to purpose-driven companies rigorously vetted by our team, we’ve also added custom filters to narrow your search even more.

Now you can search by values, benefits, impact areas, and DEI. 

Looking for a female-led company? You can search for that. Looking for a company that’s impacting the environment in a positive way? You can search for that. 

Finding a purpose-driven job has never been easier, and we are pumped to be democratizing access to purpose-driven work in this way. 

According to Gartner, 82% of employees say it’s important for their organization to see them as a person, not just an employee. People want to bring their authentic selves to work, and that includes their purpose and values. 

We hear this in our own community: people are looking for work that helps them find fulfillment, while also supporting their wellbeing, and aligning with their personal values. 

It’s now easier than ever to find a job that aligns with your values.
