About the Company

HireArt is a Y-Combinator backed contract staffing platform that's changing how companies hire, manage, and employ their W-2 contract workers. We’ve helped hundreds of great companies, including Toyota Research Institute, Facebook, Nasdaq, and Lyft, build and manage amazing teams of W-2 contractors. 

HireArt is building the talent cloud for W-2 contractors, providing clients a full-stack platform through which they can instantly access pre-recruited, pre-vetted, ready-to-hire contract talent aggregated and curated from dozens of sources. With HireArt, it’s as easy to source and employ W-2 contractors on demand as it is for SMBs to hire and pay freelancers on UpWork or Fiverr.

We're growing rapidly (Deloitte ranked us the 66th fastest growing technology company in 2020, and Inc. Magazine ranked us #223) and looking for a Recruiting Associate to support hiring needs from our growing roster of clients and the growth of our talent cloud. We work with some of the world’s most respected companies, and our Recruitment Team works daily to ensure they have access to the best contract talent available.

About the Role

We want someone who is sharp and conscientious to play an integral part in our sourcing and screening efforts. We are tasked with finding ideal candidates to fill an ever-growing number of open positions for our clients who include some of the world's biggest tech companies. Luckily we have a large internal database, but we need your help to match our candidates to the right jobs. 

In this role, you'll determine whether candidates meet certain qualifications through application and resume assessment, then think critically about whether they are the right fit for a role. You'll gain expertise in identifying qualified candidates for a range of roles and put that expertise to work to help populate our talent cloud.

HireArt strives to “humanize" applicants' job search – everyone who applies to a job through HireArt knows where they stand in the hiring process, and every application is assessed by people on our Recruitment Team. At times, this role may require being a point person for candidates during the application process and reaching out to candidates to let them know about new roles.

The ideal person will be process oriented, able to prioritize, and possess solid interpersonal communication skills along with the ability to confidently make informed decisions.

  • 1+ years of experience recruiting, previous experience in candidate screening and/or sourcing is preferred

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

  • A strong understanding of different professions/industries ranging from autonomous vehicle operations to technical project management

  • The ability to empathize with candidates during their job search

  • Process-oriented, detail-oriented, and vigilant. You should be comfortable doing tasks where many small details each have equal importance.

  • Team-player who is willing to jump in, help out, and take on new tasks

Commitment: This is a permanent, full-time position with HireArt. This position can be performed remotely and is open to U.S.-based candidates.

HireArt values diversity and is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. Unfortunately, we are not able to sponsor visas or employ corp-to-corp.
Company Description

HireArt is building the talent cloud for W-2 contractors.  Companies can use our modern, full stack platform to source and employ their contingent workforce.

HireArt’s customers use contractors to spin up new projects and in most cases they must be employees (W-2s) rather than independent contractors (1099s). To develop a new product, for example, a company might need a frontend software engineer skilled in JavaScript, Node and React and a backend engineer versed in Python. To implement an Oracle Cloud ERP application, it might source an Oracle Cloud Specialist. Because our customers want to control when, where and how the work is done, labor laws require their contractors to be W-2 employees rather than freelancers. 

Historically, sourcing and employing W-2 contractors has been a nightmare. Whereas companies like Upwork make hiring freelancers for gig projects a breeze, when companies need W-2 contractors, they have traditionally turned to thousands of fragmented, sub-scale staffing agencies. Agencies rely on an army of recruiters to manually recruit candidates, resulting in long fill times, low fill rates and eye-popping markups (markups frequently reach 60-100% of each hour billed!). Painful as sourcing has been, employment has been more painful still.  Whereas companies like Gusto and Zenefits help SMBs employ their direct hires, offering a turnkey solution for onboarding, payroll, and benefits, agencies employing contractors require their clients to interface with manual processes and rickety point solutions. A company hiring 200 contractors through a dozen staffing agencies, each with its own point solutions for payroll, time & attendance, benefits administration, PTO, expense reimbursement and so on, for example, might be burdened by (say) 100 point solutions, each with a separate login – if, that is, the agency offers any software at all.

HireArt is a modern platform designed to address the needs, multiple parties, and idiosyncratic workflows of contract staffing. To source contractors, hiring managers can create job requisitions, search our directory of qualified and available contractors, review applicants we have assessed and shortlisted, schedule interviews, extend offers, conduct background checks and digitally onboard new hires.  To employ contractors, HireArt stands in as the employer of record. Hiring managers can use our platform to conduct payroll, manage time and attendance, administer benefits, respond to PTO requests, review expense submissions; and maintain compliance. Uniquely, the solutions on our platform are unified and self-serve.

Using HireArt, our customers can source and hire qualified contractors for a new project within days and effortlessly manage them throughout their assignments. While most of our customers first engage HireArt to source for a specific job, as they experience the advantages of a modern employment platform, many eventually choose HireArt as a single platform to employ and manage the entirety of their contingent workforce, including workers they source themselves.

Our business is profitable and rapidly growing but we are still in our first inning. While we've already helped build teams at hundreds of admired companies including Facebook, Toyota, Google, and Airbnb, we are now turning our focus to scaling. The TAM for contract staffing, we estimate, is approximately $200 billion in the US alone.
