We made two hires! Hipo is easy to use and we love how the profiles provide us direct LinkedIn access, and information on what's important to candidates. We received high-quality applications from our posting that added a lot of value to our internal recruitment process. Will be using this platform again!

Hipo is an incredibly effective way of hiring for our sales team. The product is easy to use, and the candidates are well matched. I plan to continue to use the product as we scale our organization. Having hired salespeople my entire career, I've been waiting for a product like Hipo.

Hipo is the easiest way to see candidates and move them to interviews. The platform is super efficient and easy to use, presenting me to people I'm interested in. I admit I was skeptical at first but I'm really enjoying it!

Tariq E.

As a fast growing startup, finding, qualifying and selecting the right sales peoples is of utmost importance. Hipo out performed standard job boards and delivered quality candidates, who were well matched to our open positions, quickly. It also allowed for easy communication and connectivity with talent in real time. Highly recommend!

Hipo works! We hired someone amazing for our Sales Team. We had a unique role to fill, and matched to candidates that fit our culture. The quality of the candidates far exceeded our expectations.

Hipo has provided the strongest candidates. We saved 75% of our time hiring compared to Indeed and other platforms, and made two offers when we only had one role available!

Hipo presented us with the highest-quality candidates in comparison to other tools like LinkedIn. The platform added speed to our hiring process, impressed our SVP of Sales and we were able to make our newest hire!

I just accepted and applied. And wow, your platform is awesome. It has everything in one place, and shows you info and youtube video about the company. Just want to say, the platform is amazing!

Ahmed K.

Hipo Hire


Hipo was definitely helpful for me given the fact that I was looking for a job platform that was not an Indeed, Monster or LinkedIn. I liked the concept of picking jobs based on skills rather than uploading a resume - it opened my eyes to positions I did not know existed. I have already recommended Hipo to a few of my friends/family who have started looking for job opportunities here.

Vivek N.

Hipo Hire


Before Hipo the job hunt was long, tedious, unfulfilling. Hipo put me in touch with the hiring contact immediately via DMs & gave me access to opportunities that I normally would not be looked at for.

Nero D.

Sales Director Hire


I spent 8 months applying to jobs, spending hours crafting and adapting my resume to every role. It could take hours, and I had no idea if anyone even read it. Hipo simplified and centralized the process. I loved being able to focus my energy into one single profile and resume.

Devon B.

Sales Development Representative Hire


Thanks to Hipo, I landed an amazing opportunity that matched all the criteria I was looking for when thinking about my next career move. Hipo is filled with innovative startups that are looking for strong candidates in various fields.

Salma A.

Before Hipo, the job hunt was a lot of putting myself out there without a lot of response. Hipo made it less daunting and provided a welcome change in UX!
