The Short Version: Thanks in part to online dating, the dating industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few decades, leaving many entrepreneurs hastening to keep up and expand their businesses to better serve singles everywhere. However, finding qualified job candidates to join the team can take time and effort away from running the business. Fortunately, ZipRecruiter can make the hiring process a breeze by connecting employers with over 100 million job candidates with the right experience. The online employment marketplace’s matching algorithm brings relevant jobs or job candidates to any job seekers and SMBs. It’s a fast and accurate way for business leaders to make a hire. In fact, 80% of employers who post a job listing on ZipRecruiter are matched with a relevant candidate within 24 hours. If you’re a matchmaker, dating coach, dating site/app owner, or other industry professional looking to expand your resources and keep up with the demands of a growing customer base — you can use ZipRecruiter’s hiring services to find your next great team members.
In 2010, four men got together to launch an online job distribution service called ZipRecruiter. Ian Siegel, Joe Edmonds, Willis Redd, and Ward Poulos worked on the website as a side project, but eventually they quit their corporate careers and put all their energy into bootstrapping a company and producing a streamlined web service to match employers and employees.
“ZipRecruiter was founded specifically to help SMBs overcome unique challenges they can face when looking for their next great employees,” said Scott Garner, ZipRecruiter’s Corporate Communications Manager.
To date, ZipRecruiter’s online employment marketplace has helped over 1 million employers and over 100 million job candidates worldwide. The website and app’s AI-powered matching algorithm can provide employers with a shortlist of skilled job candidates within moments.
When you’re hiring, you can review résumés on ZipRecruiter’s user-friendly dashboard and pick the ideal employee(s) to add to your team and help you grow your business. ZipRecruiter seeks out potential hires and lets you know when it’s found a good one for you via the largest email job alert program in existence.
Whether you’re a matchmaker seeking to hire an assistant or an entrepreneur looking to build a team to create a snazzy new dating app, you can use ZipRecruiter to find relevant job candidates with an array of skill sets and work experiences.
Scott told us that ZipRecruiter has helped countless small businesses scale up by posting a job ad and using a simple search for qualified candidates. “Most of our customers are SMBs that don’t have enough in-house HR resources,” he said.
Connecting Millions of Candidates With Employers
To take advantage of ZipRecruiter’s network of millions of candidates, click Post a Job (or download the app) and create your business profile. Whether you’re a one-person operation or representing a large company with 3,500+ employees, you can identify the type of candidates you’re looking for and how many positions you need to fill.
You can also add pre-screen interview questions about the person’s background or skills to help you weed out unqualified individuals. A customer success team can also help you with the wording of your job ad to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward.
“We try to make it as easy as possible,” Scott said. “Once the job is posted, we’ll identify the most highly relevant candidates that are closest to you very quickly.”
People working in all industries post profiles on ZipRecruiter in hopes of finding job opportunities or able employees. If you’re a matchmaker or dating professional, you can review hundreds of candidates who specialize in web development, marketing, recruitment, or other skills necessary to expand your business.
You won’t have to wait long for applicants to find you — or for you to find them. The network’s algorithm quickly connects employers with job candidates with the right qualifications for the business. According to ZipRecruiter’s internal data, 80% of employers posting job ads on the website or app find a qualified candidate within 24 hours — and 40% get a qualified candidate within an hour.
“We’re really focused on speed and accuracy,” Scott told us. “As we like to say, ‘We find needles in haystacks.’”
Releasing an Award-Winning App for Employers
Recently, the ZipRecruiter team has pioneered a new mobile tool to assist employers by launching the ZipRecruiter Employer app as well as the Job Search app to match employers and employees on the go. On the employer app, you’ll receive alerts when a candidate applies for a job you posted, and you can rate applicants to show your interest. Meanwhile, candidates will go through your screening questions and try to catch your eye with their profiles. Think of it as a dating app but for jobs.
The ZipRecruiter Employer app currently boasts a 4.6-star rating on Google Play. Peter Chichester called it a “very convenient tool to quickly look at candidates if you’re not at your desktop.” The app’s smart algorithm is what makes the employer app really shine. The algorithm observes user behavior (including browsing history and candidate ratings) and uses it to inform its recommendations to employers and job seekers alike.
“The ZipRecruiter app is not just a place where you can go and review inbound candidates,” Scott said. “As you use it, our matching algorithm allows the app to learn what types of candidates you’re looking for — and it becomes smarter the more you use it.”
ZipRecruiter’s award-winning app delivers employers a focused and relevant stream of potential hires so you can choose the candidate that’s right for your business.
A Driven & Smart Team With a Unique Culture
ZipRecruiter has over 1,000 employees, most of whom work out of the office headquarters in Santa Monica, CA. An electric energy permeates the office as team members focus on how they can help millions of people find their next great jobs and SMBs find their next great employees. And, when they need a break, team members can always grab a healthy snack from the office kitchen or attend a gym or yoga session during lunch hours.
Scott described ZipRecruiter team members as smart and innovative people who contribute to the company’s growth each and every day.
“Everyone here is really driven by the challenge of how to help job seekers find jobs faster and help employers find the right candidates to help them grow their business,” Scott said. “That makes for an invigorating culture of a lot of driven, smart people who are having fun solving big challenges.”
ZipRecruiter also has offices in Austin, London, and Tel Aviv, among other places.
“There’s a ton [of pros]!” wrote a former ZipRecruiter employee in a review on Glassdoor. “From free health benefits to catered lunches to a leadership team that makes every effort possible to connect individually with even the most entry-level positions.”
