Five years ago, I stood amongst peers at Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award ceremony. The recruiting agency I co-founded was booming. We’d made Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list year after year, opened our fourth office and were widely considered one of the country’s fastest growing technology staffing firms.
But, as I stood next to my fellow founders, I felt unsettled.
These leaders were innovating. They were disrupting legacy industries and using technology to create better, more affordable, customer experiences.
We had gotten really good at executing on the old way of agency recruiting.
Shortly after, I sold that company and spent the next three years dreaming and learning. I talked to growth companies, recruiters and engineers. I studied technology-driven products, services, and business models focused on creating new futures in stodgy industries. I reimagined the recruiting experience from the ground up.
My goal: transform everything.
And today, that new vision for recruiting is reality. It’s called UpRecruit.
As software developers and recovering agency recruiters, our team has been on both sides of hiring. We’ve felt the frustration of endless searching, distrust of intermediaries, exorbitant fees, and sensed the dread of a critical hire “just not working out.” And while new platforms have emerged to help, they haven’t yet reached the Phoenix market.
So join me.
Forget job posts, manual searches, resumes and recruiters. Build your business with top talent, affordably and efficiently. Or, build your career with top companies in the world’s next great startup hub.
Either way, you can do it with UpRecruit.
Hiring better, together.
