The Breakout List is popular especially for engineering/design/data talents exploring high potential companies to join. Does it also apply to marketing/sales people? Or is there any list especially for growth hackers?

    If I was on the hunt for a job at a startup, I'd certainly use The Breakout List as an indicator of what companies have the chance to be a rocketship. These businesses all have amazing potential and getting the chance to work with these brands early on could be exactly what a marketer needs to gain both experience, knowledge and skills that will last a lifetime.

      Interesting -

      I guess it's stage specific, but growing North American startups will probably get caught by Mattermark's Growth Score. So you could pull together a list of startups by location + growth score + industry...

      But I feel The Breakout List is really going to be a validator, not a primary "I want to work here because X".

      Like... I work at Hull because I like the team AND the product is interesting AND we have a great market potenital. Probably in that order. So if there's a true way of sorting by companies to join, it would probably be LinkedIn => ProductHunt => Mattermark Growth Score.
