We flip the job hunt on its head by getting the best startups to pitch their roles to great candidates.

Meet the Team



Matthew spent his early career in start-ups: he set up a small business while at university, went on to work in a drinks start-up in London and then moved abroad to work for a sport-tech start-up shortly after. Matthew then spent three years at BCG doing Strategy Consulting, before moving on to lead the strategy and ops team at Wizarding World.



Kabir graduated from Oxford in 2016 and spent 4 years working as a Strategy Consultant at Monitor Deloitte, helping large corporates build and scale ventures. He then set up Jumpstart in the summer of 2020 with Matthew, to help graduates get into the start-up world.



Georgie joined the Jumpstart team having spent a few years on the global marketing team at Entrepreneur First, helping people become founders. Prior to that, she worked in advertising and in effective altruism (figuring out how to do the most good possible using science and rationality).


Marketing and Ops Associate

Ellie was on Jumpstart's 8th cohort, and ended up joining us as Marketing and Ops Associate, finding and onboarding the best grads. She also spearheads our D&I initiatives, making startup careers accessible. Ellie also loves drag, and keeps a long list of potential drag names on her notes app.


Head of Community

Charlie is responsible for making sure our alumni get the support they need to thrive in their roles – she's also Head of Organised Fun. When she’s not running the community, she can be found on a bench at the latest art exhibition.
