Hired is Headed to Austin
Already, over 60 of Austin’s top companies are using Hired, including RetailMeNot, Cognitive Scale, Reaction, Sparefoot, Umbel, and Under Armour’s new Connected Fitness headquarters. And they are already finding success, here’s what Ryan Trunck, the Director of Digital Engineering for Connected Fitness at Under Armour had to say about his experience so far:
“One of our challenges is just finding the talent that’s out there and available – there can be a lack of strong candidates and the market is very competitive. Hired is a huge help; they have high-quality candidates every week, help us keep a pulse on the local hiring market, and have sourced great hires for us.”
If you’re not familiar with Hired yet, we help match highly-skilled technical workers with leading tech companies like Facebook, Amazon, PayPal, OpenTable, Zillow, Mixpanel, and over 2,000 others. We’ve flipped the normal job process – on Hired, companies apply to the candidates that they are interested in. Each company shares salary and job description information up front; so that every candidate can easily see their options and decide which ones they want to interview with.
Here’s what Trent Harvey, a Hired user that recently found a job in Austin, said about his experience:
“I wanted to work with a company that had a young, energetic team with a product and a vision I could get behind. Hired made it really easy to see what companies were interested in me, and a majority of the companies that reached out were a perfect fit for what I was looking for.”
