What are the rules for using AngelList?

1. No spam.

Don’t spam introduction requests to candidates or applications to companies. There isn’t a hard limit here; we track multiple variables when making this determination. So long as you’re taking the time to read and only reaching out to others you feel are a good match, you will never be affected by this.

Don’t use job listings or applications to advertise:

        • any commercial products or services
        • “entrepreneurial opportunities” to start your own business
        • advertise multi-level, affiliate, or referral marketing links
        • training programs - even if they end in a position
        • investment opportunities
        • incubator or accelerator programs
        • any other activity that isn’t specifically job related

2. No middlemen.

  • This includes contingency posts, any 3rd party recruiters, and may include recruiting platforms.
  • Don’t post jobs, apply to jobs, source or contact candidates on behalf of other people or companies.

3. Be fair and accurate.

  • Jobs should list real compensation for currently open positions at active companies - nothing contingent on future funding.
  • No concealing company information.
  • Candidates and companies must accurately represent themselves - we may remove profiles or suspend access pending verification if necessary.
  • Companies can’t charge application fees to candidates or require any kind of 3rd party site signup.

4. Be professional.

  • Treat candidates, companies, and the AngelList team with respect.
  • Don’t try to get around these rules or our terms of service
    Violators may be permanently banned, potentially without warning.
