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

Cons

  • There is a sentiment among some employees that career development opportunities are limited, with insufficient training and a lack of substantial commission for sales roles, potentially impacting job satisfaction and financial growth.
