Job Description:

Location: This role is remote, based in the US. Or if you're local to Los Angeles, feel free to work from our office anytime! About WhoCo: It doesnt matter how many interviews youve done. Whether youre a candidate or a hiring manager, the hiring process is frequently frustrating, largely opaque, and super time-consuming. Whats more, its dehumanizing. Its superficial, lacks guidance on both sides, and often favors the interests of the company. Its a fractured process with little thought given to the opportunity at hand or indicators of success in the role. Job descriptions get copied from the web, and people wing it in interviews. But accepting a new job is a personal, potentially life-changing decision, and a hiring fail can be devastating for a company. WhoCo is here to fix hiring. Our technology connects and humanizes every part of the hiring process: organizational design and planning, role analysis, interview planning, and beyond all supercharged with rich data and modern HR Science. Hiring is profoundly human, so we provide a guided hiring process that facilitates smart matches for candidates and companies. And the WhoCo talent team supports the human element of the hiring process, tooon both the company and candidate sides. This is how we team. WhoCo was founded in 2019 by Amit Kapur, Tim Armstrong, Karl Rinderknecht and Chris Bissell: four experienced entrepreneurs who spent their careers building world class teams at Google, Amazon, AOL, and Verizon; and launching successful startups like MySpace (acquired by News Corp), Gravity (acquired by AOL), and Patch (acquired by AOL).
