Applied is hiring
Hiring (and being hired) is one of the most important things we do, but humans are frankly terrible at it. We look for the wrong things, we’re naturally biased, and we don’t follow the data.
Applied is on a mission to help teams hire the best person for the job, regardless of race, gender or background. Our platform helps teams hire with more precision and less bias. Everything is measured so teams can understand what works and that allows them to constantly improve and give candidates useful feedback!
We've proved that it's a better way to hire, for all involved.
We're lucky enough to be scaling the business and need a Senior UX Designer to work within our growing Product team.
This is a chance to get in on the ground floor of a fast growing, investor-backed start-up and be part of changing the way hiring is done on a global scale. You can read more about us in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch and New Scientist.
