Our collaborators at re:purpose recently posted this blog we wanted to share with Let’s Detroit followers. The goal of re:purpose is to match job seekers with purpose-driven companies so they’re always in-the-know of great places to work and great people looking for jobs. If you’re in the market for a new job, we recommend reaching out.

With the New Year approaching, is now the perfect time to look for a new position? We think so! Luckily for you, there are some amazing Michigan startups hiring on re:purpose right now, looking for talented people like you. So if you’re a local Michigander, an ex-pat looking to come home, or you’re interested in moving to one of the fastest growing tech regions in the country, we’ve got you covered.
Here are just a few of the roles these companies are trying to fill:
First of all, Michigan has been ranked third in tech job growth since 2017, behind only California and Texas. There are definitely jobs available here! This fact alone is amazing, but on top of that, our cost of living is much lower than any other tech hub (for example, it costs 29% less to live in Detroit than it does Denver, CO), meaning your paycheck can provide you with a much higher quality of life than in other cities. Major-name businesses like Under Armour, Nike, Bonobos, Lululemon, Google, LinkedIn, and Microsoft have recently moved into or near downtown so you’ll be in good company. And you want to be in good company, right? Of course you do!
At re:purpose, we aim to match job seekers with purpose-driven companies, and the companies we list below are doing it right.
