This web version of 500 miles is really neat. Find out a ton of information about tech companies to help you choose one that you think is a good fit for you if you're looking for a job. If you're not, you'll still find this to be a valuable resource to do research on companies you are interested in digging into. I use this weekly and I'm never looking for a job!

This is Viral, co-founder and maker of 500 Miles. I co-founded a company with @muralisa to build a platform that helps young professionals discover companies at the cusp of breaking out into successful organizations, and get hired by them. The product uses a deep analytics and machine learning platform to develop key insights based on unbiased information about companies and help find employers that are a great fit for each candidate. Whether you are a fresh graduate, an experienced professional or a mid-career professional looking to switch careers, 500 Miles will help you discover, evaluate and find opportunities that are right for you. Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback.

Looks like a great resource. However at first glance I don't see how this is built with the job seekers in mind? Every job seeker will have a certain talent set and looking for a specific title or position, yet there isn't an option to search these? The job seeker is left to searching through each company individually, which ultimately could be done on the companies own website. That being said there are some incredible resources found on each of the company profiles. With slight improvements to the user experience this could be a powerful resource.

@seointern BJ, that's right. On the web currently, this is a discovery tool. We will expand this to include a profile & preferences option for job seekers so we can use our machine learning recommender system to find the opportunities with perfect fit. This currently exists already in our mobile apps that you can download and check out. http://ios.500miles.io & http://android.500miles.io
