Adam and Chaz

Our story

Hatch was founded in 2017 by Adam Jacobs (Co-Founder, THE ICONIC) and Chaz Heitner (Co-Founder, Zip Co). For several years we had talked about creating an impact-driven company together, but it wasn’t until 2016 when trekking in Nepal that we asked ourselves the question: what should society look like in 100 years?

It’s a powerful question - try answering it! We want to see a world where everyone finds true meaning in their work. Imagine that future - where our work connects both our sense of purpose and our strengths, and where work is used to create a more human-centric world and a healthy society.

Since launching, we have helped thousands of young people find paid, meaningful work at leading Australian employers (more info here). During COVID-19 we placed hundreds of stood down workers from Australia’s top employers into temporary jobs through the Hatch Exchange. We’re now taking our matching approach to all entry level and junior professional roles, taking the biggest step yet towards our mission.

Our mission

Our mission is for all people to find meaning in work.

Hatch exists to level the playing field for people as they discover the career that’s right for them; allowing them to find work based on their transferable strengths and motivators. We help employers overcome the barriers to finding people who are a genuine fit for their teams and are often missed in typical hiring processes.

Meet the Hatch Team

In building Hatch, we aim to create a high-performing organisation that brings out the very best in us all. A psychologically safe place where we can bring our whole self, where we constantly improve performance through an open feedback culture, where we are guided by our mission and values, and where exceptional talent comes to live and build something truly impactful.

We’re based in Sydney but our team spans the globe - brought together by a shared passion for helping people find and do great work. Serial entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, scientists, adventurers - you need a pretty special bunch if you’re going to design and build the future of work.
