Recruiting is broken. The workforce lacks diversity and inclusion. And current recruiting methods and tools contribute to the problem. Their mission is to make the world more equitable by building a collaborative talent marketplace that creates more opportunity for everyone.

Our client's virtual recruiting platform is transforming the talent industry by bringing together recruiting professionals and talent through communities, expanding talent opportunities in a broken system, and helping businesses build diverse workforces. They are also actively building a diverse and inclusive organization. They welcome people of all backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. 

They are backed by Sequoia, with a recent $8.5M Series A funding. They are headquartered in San Francisco, but many of their teams and roles are remote-first (US-based only at this time).

About the team

Their team is composed of high-energy people with unique backgrounds (from high school dropouts to MLK scholars). They're a team of learners and doers with a bias for action.
