We have started using Hired and Interview Jet to recruit more senior technical talent. The candidate pool here thus far has yielded interesting candidates.

We have used Hired. It has good recommendations.

I used Hired a little bit. I didn’t hire anyone through Hired because I didn’t really get to use it, but I was impressed by their candidate pool.
Co-founder & CEO - Foundersuite
We started Hired last week and we like it so far. I like the fact that it’s almost like Tinder--it identifies candidates for you and then you can connect with them.

Workable has been more impactful for us in terms of attracting a bigger pool of applicants. But Hired is really good for finding designers, salespeople and engineers. I think that Hired is really good because you get to figure out (a) if they are interested right away and (b) their expectations on salary. If you’re off-base, you don’t have to waste their time or your time. It cuts away a bit of the noise. Hired has been the best place for recruiting (online) that I’ve seen.

Hired was really good but their cost was a little too high considering they completely automated the process. The interface is really good and they have good candidates.
Founder & CEO - Sproutling
We’re pretty junior on both fronts right now. We’ve been looking for a first hire no more than 2 weeks ago now. There have been good candidates on both platforms, but the quality of the candidates has been greater on Hired.
Founder & Head of Engineering - Opentest
Hired is where we’ve had the most success in recruiting by far for one important reason: the quality of the candidates are great as they seem to do a great job of curation. Their fees are 15%, which I consider to be fair for providing access to a pool of high quality candidates. The customer service we’ve received from their team is also really superb even though we are not the biggest customer. They really understand startups.
Founder & CEO - iPyxel Creations
Candidates from Hired are higher quality than ones from AngelList, but not as high quality as self-sourced candidates. We’ve hired about 2-3 people from Hired. And now they’ve added sales and marketing candidates, so it’s not just for engineering hires anymore, which makes it much more powerful.
Co-founder & COO - Branch Metrics
Hired is a good service, and a quick way to find engineers. But you have to make sure you have a good hiring process in place.
Co-founder & CEO - Townsquared
Our experience with Hired has been amazing for finding engineers and designers. We’ve had less luck on the sales side. Their customer service is top notch and their candidates are high-quality.
Co-founder & CEO - Priori Legal
I really like Hired.com in theory, but we haven’t had great candidates from them. I like it because it feels like I can get the lay of the land a lot better, and it’s one of the few places you can go to view candidates instead of having candidates come to you. We’ve used it primarily for sales candidates.

Hired is great for recruiting tech talent. It's a little expensive for what it is, but they've allowed us to do a payment plan, which allows us to spread out payments over 12-24 months. The platform makes it really easy to search through profiles.
Co-founder & CEO - Manicube
I have a Hired account, but I never use it. It's really expensive.

3%Stacklist Startups Are Using Hired
Hired is a useful service to companies of all sizes, though is most used among startups Series A and beyond, given the service’s rigorous qualifications and high-end pricing.
Hired has two payment plans. The more popular option is 15% of the hire’s base salary for the first year, (with a 90-day money-back guarantee), although you can also choose to pay 1% of the hire’s base salary each month for two years.
