Logic20/20's Seattle office

It’s peak job search time, which can be both exciting and overwhelming. Luckily, we’re launching exciting companies (with tons of job openings!) on The Muse all the time.

This list of 12 companies, our newest partners, includes employers like Babylist, an online registry for expecting parents—and a place that mentors its employees to help them grow. At Paychex, a leading provider of HR, payroll, benefits, and insurance services, there’s an entire department dedicated to shaping the company’s culture. Or you can consider the mission-driven team at 4Ocean, which works to remove pounds of trash from the ocean and coastlines.

No one company is the same, just like not every applicant is the same. And you might just find your ideal fit—and the right job—by checking out the list below.

The company started out selling bracelets and, for each product purchased, their crew removes one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. Since its launch in 2017, the 4ocean team has removed more than seven million pounds of plastic—and they’re just getting started.
