ABOUT US

Hired is an end to end SaaS hiring platform that facilitates a marketplace where both companies and candidates can come together to enable an optimal match, or hire. Hired combines our intelligent job matching algorithm with unbiased career counseling to help technical talent of all kinds find a job they love. Through Hired, our job seekers (candidates) and our clients (companies) have transparency into the end to end hiring process from sourcing to skills assessment to transparent salary offers. This level of insight is unmatched, making the recruiting process quicker and more efficient than ever before.

Hired was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices across the United States, Canada, France, and the UK. The company is backed by Lumia Capital, Sierra Ventures, and other leading investors.

ABOUT THE ROLE

A Talent Advocate is the guide for candidates through the Hired platform process.They have a close pulse on the job market and use these insights to help candidates be successful with their job search. They are the experts that job seekers can lean on; they provide guidance on how to interview, what to prepare for, and ensure that job offers align with each individual’s career goals.

Our next Talent Advocate will ideally have a firm understanding of not just tech, but start-up recruiting and the high demand for tech talent locally. You'll be working with around 100-130 candidates a month (hand delivered by our talented Marketing and Curation team) to guide them in our marketplace setting. A Talent Advocate does not simply care about getting someone a job, but improving every detail that goes into finding an amazing opportunity.

Talent Advocates are not graded on endless metrics but rather work towards creating the most enjoyable, transparent and efficient job search experience possible. Our goal is to help everyone find a job they love. We concentrate on measured candidate experience and simple placement success metrics. We look for people who can own new projects, work across multiple teams, and manage themselves efficiently. The future of the role is limitless and we’re looking for people that can hone their current skills - and craft new ones - to be effective in other areas of the company. At our current stage of growth it's essential for us to hire the future leaders of the company now to keep our culture of promotion from within.
