Ask HN: Who's Hiring for non-tech roles

I love the who's hiring thread on the 1st of every month. However, my background is not in a tech role but in finance and don't want to weed through all the tech roles for one or two non-tech jobs. I know that these companies mainly need engineers but at some point will need other non-tech related roles. My question is, any other readers out there that could use a stand alone who's hiring for non-tech roles?

Generally I fall into running a Sales/Marketing group or Business consulting, but my background is in various startup and Industrial/technical fields.

I have found one full time job, a few clients, and have seen/connected with a few groups I know from places outside hacker news here.

Personally, love reading the boards to find new companies and technologies that I didn’t know about and leads me down the rabbit hole.

I would think that there could be some benefit to having more non-technical job posts on the board. As to a stand alone who’s hiring... I would think it would be harder to get people to post to another thread as opposed to getting more non-technical roles and filtering.

What are the odds that companies turn to Hacker News to hire non-tech people? There are more than sufficient generic job boards out there. Perhaps the 'tech savvy non-tech roles' angle could have some value.

This. I would apply for a role in this category.

As a brand + marketing guy, sure, but I search the roles for relatable keywords, or check hiring pages I see on companies that are in that area / remote.
