    I have been working at Hired full-time (More than a year)


    Best coworkers - Hired hires for people with shared values and passion for our mission. This is the first place I've felt I can bring my full self to work
    Great pay - Hired offers competitive base salaries and our new commission structure rolling out in Q1 is even better than before for equity
    Office - beautiful SF, NY, etc offices. I work remote now and feel very lucky my company is allowing me to do so!
    Inclusion - Hired gives tons of support to pay equity and building a diverse workplace. They give our ERGs fairly large budgets every quarter to put on events and drive important conversations with our coworkers
    CEO - I believe that Mehul is not only a great leader, but a really good person and this makes me happy to stay and grow my career here


    Middle management in sales are mostly first time managers - all great people who genuinely care about their teams but I do wish for more experienced leadership sometimes
    As we've grown, not all our new hires are gems. I wish we would grow more carefully and gradually (i.e. not hiring 10 people for a new team at once who then have a hard time ramping)
    A couple of toxic people in leadership who have begun to negatively affect our newer hiring choices and office culture

    Advice to Management

    Hire carefully, not quickly
    Make sure your new hires are set up for success
    More manager training (not all successful ICs make great managers)
    Make sure to let go of toxic leaders - they are mostly amazing but the trickle down effect is really clear here as we are rapidly growing

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hired (San Francisco, CA).


    Interviewing at Hired was honestly a breath of fresh air. There was a consistent theme of transparency from my first introduction, all the way through wrapping up the process. I had the opportunity to meet with a super diverse panel and left with a strong cross-functional perspective having met with people from multiple departments. Most importantly, each interviewer was well prepared for each of my interviews and asked more relevant questions that I've seen at any company. It is refreshing to see that even as you interview with people outside of the department you may be directly working on, each person had a clear understanding of what success looks like for the position.

    I felt challenged, gained a comprehensive and diverse view of the role I was interviewing for, and walked away with an incredibly positive opinion of the company.
