Junior Front-end Engineer

About Us

At HYRE we are revolutionizing the way students find and develop towards their optional careers. By helping them to create and grow career profiles that present them to companies in the best possible way and guiding them to the careers and companies that fit them and their aspirations best, we come in where higher education falls short. By helping talents develop, we enable companies to find exactly the junior talents that are essential to their future success. Raising transparency while removing the friction both sides face today in this, is an enormous value proposition that will allow us to grow strongly in the future. After just having raised funding from leading angels, we are ready to grow from MVP to full product, that’s where you come in!
