We are on a journey

We want to revolutionise tech recruitment, to make it easier
for employers to hire the best talent and help candidates find their dream job.

How it all started

hackajob is an online marketplace that allows companies to fast track their recruitment process by hiring software engineers who have already proven their ability in specific domains. The job search process is both fun and engaging for candidates, whilst allowing companies to interact with techies in their element.

Founded in November 2014 by university friends Razvan Creanga and Mark Chaffey, hackajob was born out of their frustration with the traditional recruitment agency approach and the difficulty to hire top engineers. Now a team of 60+, hackajob is on a mission to connect the best digital talent with the most exciting companies, globally.
