I work with a lot of small companies so when I saw this site I was happy to give it a try. The obstacles to profile creation were immediate. One of the profile items you MUST fill in is prior gigs/jobs. Enter a type (Employee, contractor, etc) and then enter the company name, which brings up a type ahead list of known companies. The type-ahead presents and immediate problem. The issue is if the company you want to enter is not on the list, you can't add that experience to your profile. I've worked for a lot of small companies, and some start ups, many of which have been merged or sold to other companies. For what ever reason those company names have never made it into Angle.co's company database. This situation is surprising since the site's purpose is building a talent pool for start up companies.

There are other issues as well. The edit profile screen seems to loose information from one save to the next, forcing you to reenter some bits of information (like years of experience) each time.

I've made several attempts to enter parts of my profile into their site but have been unsuccessful after a week of trying. Without the completed profile you cannot go to the next step (they'll flag the profile as incomplete, making it unavailable to potential start up companies). Because of this obstacle, I cannot make any claim as to the viability or the quality of the opportunities listed on their site.

Until these issues are resolved, I don't see this website as a reasonable alternative to other job posting sites.
