A Limbo Profile conveys experience and skills while
remaining anonymous. Why?
We not only allow multiple Profiles, we encourage it. Be bold
with each one. Try different angles for different types of work
you’re interested in. Be explicit about your ideal position and
We’ll autosave as you work and you can preview your Profile at any time. Have fun with it!
It looks like you’re new here so we’ll create an account for you. Or Sign In.

Software Engineer or other technical
track—Ops, Data Science, Etc. (Eng managers and CTOs with
reports, choose Management.)
Manager, Director, VP or C-level
manager. If you don't intend to have reports, another domain is a better
Product Manager or other product facing
less-technical track like a Project Manager or
Designer of any or all facets:
If you’re technical as well, create multiple profiles for each domain.
You’re only interested in local work and don't want to work primarily remotely.
You’re open to remote work but also happy with local work in an office.
You’re only interested in remote work. Not interested in working locally.
You set this Profile to Remote only so you don’t need to choose cities.
You still can if you want to though.
We recommend choosing up to 3 cities, as that
correlates with more reveal requests—too many is confusing for hiring managers. If you’re open to
relocating, add cities where you’d like to move.
Some companies may only be able to employ folks authorized to work
in the USA.
While working remotely time zone is often important for coordination.
If you could have any title, what would it be? If you're not sure,
put your current title or a step up.

The intro to your Profile. What distinguishes you? What are
you looking for in your next role? What should a potential hiring
manager know about you? This is the primary spot to describe
yourself and what you want. To help keep you anonymous, use
different language than you do on other public profiles like LinkedIn.
I'm a mix of artist and full stack engineer. I love
building creative work and seeing people use it - I've built
things like art management systems, museum displays and
educational kiosks for clients. I primarily work in JS,
Python and Sketch.
I've been incredibly lucky to be able to use those skills to
grow a career. I'll be newly moving to Chicago in 3 months,
so I'm looking for a small local team to join that could flex
I am an infrastructure engineer specializing in scaling
platforms. I've tuned web servers, worked down to writing C
for critical performance tasks, and set up clean AWS
environments for startups in the Bay Area for 7 years.
I'm looking for a new role at a startup in distributed
systems. I'm an infrastructure engineer by trade but this has
been an interest of mine for years. I'd like to be on a team
of smart folks who are experts in this field to learn from.
If this sounds like a match, I'd love to hear from you.
Hello! 👋 I've been managing small product teams in large
companies for over 5 years, and am looking for my next role
as a director. I'm particularly interested in helping scale
organizational culture and developing great, effective
product teams. Company values and mission are very
important to me - I am particularly excited about
education, philanthrophy, and politics. I prefer consumer
platforms but am open to hearing about other opportunities
Put each project on a new line.
Describe 1 to 3 projects you've been involved with.
Max 140 characters each. Don’t include URLs to projects
if they can identify you.
The best examples are ones that showcase the specifics of a
particular project or effort you’ve undertaken - solo or with a
group. If you have it, the business value it derived is also useful.
What values do you look for in an organization? In what sort of
environment and team size do you thrive? What makes you proud to
be part of a company?
You can stop here if you want to. Below is optional
information, which will make for a more thorough Profile. Take a look
at your Profile and decide what else you would like to add.
These will make for a more interesting profile and better describe
your requirements to potential hiring managers. Fill out as many as
you like, the more the better.
You don't consider yourself a member of an
underrepresented group or you'd just prefer not to
disclose that info.
You consider yourself a member of an underrepresented
group and would like to display that on your profile.
This can be beneficial for companies working to improve their
diversity. Underrepresented groups contain but aren't limited to
things like race, gender identity, disability, etc.
These will help people find your Profile. Comma-separated. Use as
many as you need.
We don't ask for institution. It can make you easy to
identify. Also, its industry usefulness is debatable. If you feel
strongly your Alma Mater is important, you can add it as a Trait
Pick as many traits as you feel describe your history. More is better.
Company history can be risky in terms of determining your
identity. We recommend not sharing company information unless it is
critical to your value and the company is > 2,500 people.
There are required fields you’ll need to complete
When you’re happy with your Profile, submit it for review.
A human at Limbo will review your Profile. This could
take up to 36 hours, depending on our volume.
