About


Hired is the first two-sided marketplace created specifically for Engineers, Data Scientists, Designers and Product Managers who are overwhelmed with job opportunities.

We believe finding a career should be transparent, unbiased, and controlled by the talent. Our marketplace features vetted and funded companies extending interview requests, a dedicated Talent Advocate, and a $2,000 signing bonus.

Our mission is to make hiring, or getting hired, less painful.

Story


Hired began its life as DeveloperAuction.com—an idea the founders dreamt up over Indian food, beer and rap music at an Irish bar in San Francisco in April 2012.

The team expressed frustration about past dealings with expensive recruitment agencies, and contemplated that the most popular recruitment tool amounted to “shopping for a house using a phonebook”.

The very next morning, Doug purchased the DeveloperAuction domain name and forwarded Matt and Allan the receipt. They got to work, launching the first auction during Burning Man, which netted $30 million in offers on 88 Engineers.
