Meeting a Need
CTO and founder of HiringThing, Joshua Siler, got the idea for HiringThing when he was working as a hiring manager for a midsized agency in Portland, Oregon. He wanted to streamline the cumbersome hiring process, but found a dearth of affordable, effective recruiting software. He started working on HiringThing to fill that agency’s need for fast, reliable, affordable and easy-to-use recruitment software. HiringThing launched in March 2012 with a total of eight beta customers. “Most of those companies are still with us today. They became our first paying customers in Q2 of 2012. Since then, it’s taken off, and we continue to grow at a huge quarterly rate, and we’re pretty excited about it, so it seems be working pretty well,” said Siler in an August 2013 interview with Startup Frontier. The new software has made it much easier for employees to take advantage of modern recruitment techniques when seeking new candidates. Though it remains important for employers to pursue traditional recruitment methods, business owners and hiring managers can no longer simply post a few job ads and expect the highest-quality candidates answer them. Today’s employers must increasingly rely on new and traditional modes of advertising, referrals, social media marketing and efficient job post advertising to attract and draw in the best candidates. HiringThing has partnered with a number of other companies to help small and medium-sized business owners find and hire the best job candidates. In addition to National PEO, HiringThing has also partnered with Simply Hired, Indeed, Glassdoor, Trovit, Talent Zoo, Just Jobs and Direct Employers. National PEO is pleased to announce our partnership with HiringThing, a new company providing efficient, fast and affordable recruitment software services to small and medium-sized businesses. This partnership will allow our clients to take advantage of HiringThing’s recruitment software to make finding and hiring the best job candidates easier and more painless. In conjunction with our payroll services and human resources solutions, we are confident that our partnership with HiringThing will help us to more efficiently lift the burden of administrative duties from the shoulders of our clients, so they can concentrate more fully on running their businesses
