Hired Boston is officially open for business!

A few months ago we began quietly serving the Boston area. In the short time we’ve been connecting talented people with top Boston tech companies, we’ve already featured over 500 local developers, designers, and data scientists.

The initial response has been incredible, so today we’re officially putting down roots in Boston (or we will, as soon as the snow melts)!

If you haven’t tried Hired yet, we help people take control over the next step in their career. On Hired, you’ll discover all of the opportunities available to you, and each opportunity comes with lots of information upfront –  like compensation, culture and job responsibilities – so that you can make a smart decision on where to interview.

Here’s what some of our early users in Boston said about their experience:

  • “My job search was only 3 weeks long, and the quality of companies on Hired is just better. On Hired, I found companies that were serious about talent and that were worth my time to go interview with.”  -Kyle Shank, Lead iOS Engineer at Drizly

  • “I worked with a recruiter before working with Hired. Working with Hired was much quicker and easier.”  -Keith Thompson, Software Engineer at Curata

We’re also helping hundreds of companies in the Boston area.  Every week, Hired features candidates who have experience, an in-demand skillset, and are in the market for a new job.  Companies using Hired find they can hire great people quicker than ever.

Shimrit Markette, who uses Hired at EverQuote, said this about her experience: “In our first week on Hired I found a candidate that was a perfect fit. We were able to interview him right away, and he started in less than 3 weeks.”

In addition to hiring better people more quickly, companies also spend less time sourcing and interviewing to find the candidates they want to hire. Elliot Cohen at PillPack said “because of how Hired works, and how quickly candidates move on the platform, I’ve streamlined my interview process which is now much easier on my team.”

Hired’s Boston team – Rebekah, Megan, and Brendan – is fantastic. If you are looking to find a new opportunity (or hire great people), you couldn’t ask for a better team to help you. To see for yourself, apply for an invite to Hired today as either a candidate or an employer.

If you know some talented Bostonians, we’d love to meet them. If they find a new opportunity on Hired, we’ll return the favor by sending you a $5,000 check until March 13, 2015. Learn more here.
