Career Marketplace for Tech Talent
About Hired Stock
Hired is a career marketplace that aims to match tech talent with innovative companies. Prospective employees submit a profile on www.hired.com with their resumes, and then employers registered on Hired can request interviews with candidates that match their job postings. According to the company, its platform uses machine learning to scan the requirements in a job posting and then find candidates with suitable skills. The algorithm-powered matching removes the need for recruiters to scan through resumes manually, which Hired believes saves substantial time. Candidates on the Hired platform receive guidance throughout the interview process from a dedicated Talent Advocate, as well as the ability to compare new opportunities side by side. Employers get access to a hand-picked pool of candidates who are interested in new roles, as well as transparency into competing offers so they can recruit and hire with insight.
In June 2018, Hired raised over $30 million in a Series D round of funding led by Investment Management Corporation of Ontario. Additionally, the company hired John Kelly as senior vice president of revenue, who has more than 25 years of experience. Hired was founded in 2012 by Allan Grant, Douglas Feirstein, and Matt Mickiewicz and is based in San Francisco, CA.
