About


Hired is on a mission to get everyone a job they love. Starting with in-demand tech and sales roles, we’ve built a marketplace that brings together highly qualified individuals with the companies who want to hire them.

Users on the Hired platform receive objective guidance throughout the interview process from a dedicated Talent Advocate, as well as the ability to compare new opportunities side by side so they can make their next career move with confidence. Employers get access to a hand-picked pool of candidates who are interested in new roles, as well as unmatched transparency into competing offers so they can recruit and hire with insight.

The end result is an efficient, effective and enjoyable experience that’s far faster than traditional methods. Hired is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in nearly a dozen cities in North America and Europe and plans to expand to a variety of industries and job categories.

Story


In April of 2012, our co-founders Matt, Allan and Doug met for drinks at a popular pub in San Francisco. As serial entrepreneurs, they’d all faced the daunting task of trying to attract and hire great talent to their previous companies. They lamented that the options available –online postings, expensive recruiting agencies and job boards – were akin to “shopping for a house with a phone book.”

During the course of the conversation, they struck upon the idea for Hired: a marketplace that matched the best people and companies in a way that was fast, efficient and candidate centric. The very next day, Doug purchased the domain name and the three of them got to work building the company that is on a mission to empower everyone to find a job they love.
