by Kelly Jackson, BuiltInAustin  /  The kiddos don’t have to be the only ones celebrating a first day of something. With area schools starting up just around the corner, perhaps it’s time to shift your career path to have your own “first day” at one of Austin’s growing startups. If so, consider checking out the ones hiring below.  /

What they do: The online shipping marketplace, uShip, serves primarily the commercial freight, vehicles, and household goods market, bringing transparency and efficiency to freight transportation. You may also recognize this name from the sick SXSW party they throw each year.
Why you want to work here: Chef on the scene! Each day a chef prepares lunches for the team. In addition, uShip offers free breakfasts, snacks and drinks daily. All the PTO and all the dogs! Dogs are welcome at your side or even on your desk. Fully paid health and dental insurance, plus 401K matching with no vesting required. You’ll also get a yearly uShip shipping credit.
Note from recruiting: “In general, ideal candidates are self-motivated, self-managed, and entrepreneurial spirited….we have a very results oriented environment, so we look for people that are genuinely passionate about technology and motivated to take initiative when opportunities arise. We have a lean management layer at uShip, so hiring people that understand and appreciate the responsibility that comes along with a flexible work environment is key.” —Angie Meier, Recruiter
