Helping retail & hourly employers find, screen, and hire better employees faster

HigherMe is a Y Combinator company that helps hourly employers find, screen, and hire better employees faster. Companies like Dunkin' Donuts and Panera Bread trust us with the most important part of their operation: their people.

We provide a suite of software tools - assessments, career pages, applicant tracking, video resumes, interview scheduling, text-to-apply, paperless onboarding - that help improve efficiency, but we're also a growing network of candidates for hourly jobs, allowing us to also sell access to candidates.

Customers report significant time savings, reductions in turnover, and the ability to quickly and consistently hire higher-quality employees.

Applicants love us, because they can create a profile, used to apply for lots of jobs. They don't have to fill out a separate application each time, and can do everything on mobile.

With 77 million hourly workers, the potential to extend into other verticals (customer service, admin, on-demand, healthcare) is massive.
