Kleiner Perkins hiring for start-up in stealth mode

Working for a start-up can be tricky--the rewards can be big but the risks are often major, too. If you're a gambler, you might as well play the odds and hook up with well-funded start-up. In the venture capital world, one of the most prominent and successful firms is Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, which happens to be looking for someone to join a start-up in stealth mode developing a new consumer electronics product.

The VC company remains mum on details--if you hear, drop us a line--other than saying that the job is for a consumer market research manager and experience in research aimed at boomers and seniors is a plus. It may not be glamorous--the job description says you'll be taking turns making coffee--but you'll be working for a company Kleiner has faith in. The VC firm has put money into the likes of Compaq, Amazon.com, Sun Microsystems, Google, Symantec and others.
