AngelList is a platform for startups to raise money online, recruit employees, and apply for funding. It started in January 2010 and is based in San Francisco. Six years later, they acquired Product Hunt. Currently they have over 77,000 startup jobs around the world! (We did a Product Hunt Meetup in Cairo back in November 2017, and gave away some official swag from both Product Hunt and Angel List! Check out the pictures here.)
On their website, navigate to “Jobs” and in the search, type “Cairo Governorate, EG.” Most probably as you type, it will offer it as a suggestion.
