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.

4.4

Pros
  • Great team and great purpose. Everyone is eager to learn. Everyone is very supportive and friendly. Amazing team
  • Dogs in the office!
  • Great location
Cons
  • Some employees feel that the leadership team's youth and inexperience can lead to a work environment that is occasionally disorganized and perplexing, although they acknowledge the leadership's efforts to improve and learn.
  • There are sentiments of unreliability within the team, and a perceived lack of support for new members who are expected to quickly understand ongoing projects and processes without adequate guidance.
  • While generally positive about their workplace, a few employees mention that the fast-paced nature of the company and the expectation for a high level of accountability may not suit everyone's working style.
