Hired is a marketplace for recruiting the highest caliber of startup and tech talent to the best companies.
Hired is a job marketplace that turns the traditional hiring structure completely upside down. Instead of allowing applicants to compete against each other for a certain position, Hired lets tech companies compete to hire you. Since the site has launched, over $1 million in offers have been extended through Hired, placed by nearly 800 employers. 87% of participants in the site have received offers. Those are incredible statistics for such an innovative concept for a hiring website, but they prove that the site’s unique approach does work. Plus, if you end up finding your job through Hired’s service, the company will send you a $2,000 signing bonus.
Unlike other job marketplaces, Hired makes companies give detailed salary and/or equity information upfront. This puts you in control, allowing you to decide which companies with which you want to interview. The way the actual hiring process takes place happens after a person sets up a profile on the site. The potential employee includes all of his or her information — skills, location, preferred job, etc. Then, there’s a week long auction in which various companies submit offers. At the end of the week, you should have a new job. Easy. The majority of the jobs offered on Hired are for Software Engineers, Product Managers, UX/UI Designers and Data Scientists. Employers that want to find employees from Hired’s talent pool can apply to be a member.
