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 hundreds of students find paid, meaningful work at leading Australian employers some of while they study (). During COVID-19 we have placed hundreds of stood down workers from Australia’s top employers into temporary jobs through the . 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 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.
