We combine our intelligent job matching algorithm with unbiased career counseling to help a wide breadth of diverse technical talent find a job they love.Through Hired, our candidates and customers gain insight into everything from sourcing and skills assessments to salary offers and benefits, providing full transparency into the hiring process.

Hired is built with React and Ruby on Rails, with various sets of custom and out-of-the-box tooling to support the business side of our operations. Our services are deployed to Heroku and AWS. Our development philosophy celebrates test-driven development, continuous integration and deployment, and agile processes such as sprint planning, iterative development, and retrospectives. This role will be based out of our newly expanded Toronto office, working as part of a team based in San Francisco.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work on various projects critical to Hired’s continued growth and success.

Acquisition is responsible for bringing new employers and candidates onto the recruiting platform. We use a combination of A|B testing, user experience optimizations, & creative content to improve funnel conversion across a wide variety of B2B and B2C channels. Our goal is to help people find jobs that they’ll love, and companies find great new hires.

At Hired, engineers provide input on everything they ship, and are dedicated to building a great experience - one we would want for ourselves, as many of us were once on the platform as candidates. We track every feature we release to ensure we’re making a measurable impact on candidate or employer conversion and satisfaction.

We are a cross-functional team including engineers, product management, and design, and collaborate often with marketing and sales. We work closely and are serious about the work... but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
