Our mission is based on our belief that GenZ can master their skills and show great performance even without having previous working experience - they are ready to learn quickly and work hard, so they only need a little help with a chance to prove themselves. We give them that chance! We connect with high-potential US startups that need help and are ready to take a junior member to their team and organize those win-win situations. And you’ll be surprised - our whole process from discussing the client’s needs to the new team member’s first working day takes no longer than 2 weeks!

The founder of Grintern, Anastasia Sartan, is a data scientist, serial female entrepreneur, and a very inspiring person. She lives in California and knows all the needs of the startups better than anyone - she has founded not only the amazing career platform which you are browsing right now (yes-yes, but also two more successful startups: StyleHacks - the Google and Founders Fund-backed startup, leveraging AI, and voice commerce to create a personalized shopping experience; and one of the first largest fashion e-commerce company in Russia, funded by European investors and with an acquisition offer from in 2013.
