Ask HN: News alerts when a startup shuts down?
7 points by hardingmatt 14 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 4 comments
When a startup company decides to shut down, there are talented engineers who are looking for their next job.

I think it would be really useful to have a news feed of any startup company that is shutting down. Other startups could reach out (via LinkedIn, or via email to candidates who opt-in) and let them know of cool open startup jobs.

* Does this already exist somewhere? (Angellist etc)

* Would this type of alert be too late? (Because employees often look for new jobs before the company publicly shuts down)

Seems like it could be helpful to both employees and potential employers, if done in the right way.


Thanks @ai_ia!

Looks like someone created this landing page in March 2019. It’s not launched yet. I wonder if it’s still being worked on.


You could call this service "Buzzard"

How about Grim Reaper Salvage?
