Unemployment may be high, but it’s still tough for young start-ups to find talented computer programmers in Silicon Valley, according to incubator and seed-investment firm Y Combinator. That’s why it’s holding a unique event on June 17 called “Work at a Startup,” in which the firm’s portfolio companies will present their businesses to job seekers. About 125 programmers will hear pitches from 35 Y Combinator companies, followed by a networking reception. (The deadline for programmers to apply is at 12 a.m. PT tonight.)
We caught up with Jessica Livingston, partner at the firm, to talk about the “Work at a Startup” event.
