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.

Employee feedback

AI summarised feedback about Pacific National, based on Glassdoor company reviews.

Glassdoor rating

Last 12 months


  • Good supervisors
  • Shift work allows for more productive time off
  • Opportunities and secondments to move within Australia if you are willing to relocate
  • Employees may feel that obtaining time off can be challenging and that the compensation offered is not competitive with what other companies pay for similar roles, potentially leading to feelings of being undervalued.
  • There might be a sentiment among some staff that recognition for their work is lacking and that the management, particularly within the IT department, could be perceived as lacking accountability and engaging in blame-shifting behaviors.
  • There is a possibility that employees experience frequent role changes due to staffing issues, and they might feel disconnected from a new leadership team that they perceive as prioritizing profits and executive compensation over investing in system improvements and better working conditions.
