A Marketplace for Tech Talents

CEO Matt Mickiewicz says the new funds will be used to build the Hired team and expand geographically, with launches set for Los Angeles, Boston, and Seattle this year.

hiredHired is basically a two sided market place to meet requirement of high quality  technology talent in business ventures and multitude of work fields together with best job opportunities. Out of 5000 participants, the site intake an average of 230 new participants and connect them with 700+ leading companies, including mainstream  companies such as OpenTable, Palantir, ClearSlide, Mixpanel, Klout, Lookout and Twitter as well as leading early stage startups. The company currently provide a platform to hire developers, UX/UI designers, product managers and data scientists in the Bay Area, NYC, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, LA and Seattle.

Hired as a transparent and unbiased recruitment platform with offers appears sound for engineers, but with a future aim of broadening its span that welcomes professionals from all walks of life. As the team found that the name Developer Auction would  shrink its span as it imply only engineers, name was changed to Hired.

Hired is trying to reverse the way that in-house recruiters attract talented engineers. The top developers are listed for a period of time. During that time companies can bid on potential employees, letting them know up front what they would be willing to pay a developer to join their team, including perks and signing bonuses, all before the two sit down for an interview. . If they’re interested, the engineers can follow up for interviews and go through the normal hiring process. If a professional followed Hired and secured a job with a company, the employer pays Hired 15 percent of their base salary. That fee ends up being a little bit less than what a standard recruiting agency might charge at 20 to 25 percent. Creating a profile in a site is free, but only top 150 developers would be appeared in the auction list, hence more competitive and the high breeds get hired first. The platform assures the genuinity, as this controls by regular monitoring which candidates to prevent the awkward situation where a current employer sees one of their engineers. Furthermore, Hired help the professionals a support with personal advocacy from sign in day to offer signing day.
