Our Story

The Hatch story started when good friends Adam Jacobs (Ex THE ICONIC Founder) and Chaz Heitner (Ex Zip Co-founder) came together to build something they were deeply passionate about.

Both founders believe that traditional hiring processes are broken and limit people from finding work that’s a good fit for them. Since founding the company, Adam and Chaz have built a team that shares their mission and are both confident they will continue to build an impactful global company for many years to come.

Pros
  • Flexibility
  • Great people and nice offices
  • Inclusive environment
Cons
  • Employees have expressed concerns about enduring long hours with a substantial workload, feeling that there is a lack of support from senior management, which may contribute to missed business opportunities and challenges in project completion due to budget constraints.
  • There appears to be a sentiment of dissatisfaction with the management style within the company, where employees perceive a disconnect between how approachable leaders claim to be and their actual responsiveness and empathy towards staff concerns, potentially leading to a feeling of being undervalued or unheard.
  • Some employees have noted a lack of professional development opportunities and a rotating work schedule that can extend into late hours, alongside concerns about the company's public image and internal culture, which they feel could be improved with more team-building activities and a more consistent approach to professional attire.
