Washington D.C.-based venture capital firm Revolution announced Wednesday that it has lauched the Revolution Jobs Boards, featuring over 1,000 jobs available at Revolution’s more than 125 portfolio companies.
The jobs are available in 105 cities across the nation, including eight positions open in Dallas-Fort Worth.
“Today, Revolution launched its careers page, aggregating open positions from portfolio companies across our three funds: Revolution Growth, Revolution Ventures, and the Rise of the Rest Fund,” Revolution founder, CEO, and Chairman Steve Case said in a release.
“We founded Revolution over a decade ago with the philosophy that great companies can start and scale anywhere.”
He said that 80 percent of the jobs posted are companies outside of the three major hubs for startup companies — Silicon Valley, New York, and Boston.
“We founded Revolution over a decade ago with the philosophy that great companies can start and scale anywhere,” Case said. “And we have invested against that thesis ever since.”
Case — a co-founder of AOL — said that to date, Revolution has invested more than $1 billion in companies outside of Silicon Valley.
He said that Revolution has seen a “talent boomerang that extends beyond our portfolio” as the firm has crisscrossed the nation.
“While these cities may not have the network density of Palo Alto, they have passionate founders and ecosystem building that are relentlessly championing the companies starting and scaling in their backyards,” Case said.
Case brought his Rise of the Rest tour, an initiative of Revolution, to Dallas in May. The crew spent the day with visits to Paul Quinn College, The Dallas Entrepreneur Center, Trinity Groves, among many others. The tour stop culminated in a pitch competition where local apartment furnishing startup Nickson received a $100,000 investment from the Rise of the Rest Seed Fund.
For the past four years, the tour visits outside of Silicon Valley to highlight and spur growth in entrepreneurial ecosystems nationwide.
Earlier this month, Dallas-based Neighborhood Goods announced that it raised $5.7 million in a seed funding round, which included backing from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund.
