Our Story

Shawn simply wanted to help a friend. He ended up helping over 50 million.

Set your iPod to your Prince playlist (we know you’ve got one), because to understand where we got started – you’ll have to party like it’s 1999. It was during that fateful year, while helping a friend search for internships online, Shawn Boyer noticed something peculiar. There were no websites for part-time or full-time hourly job seekers. Was he missing something? Surely someone was filling this huge need, right? Wrong. So he did what any friend would do: quit his own career and built an entire company dedicated to helping his friend--and others like him--find a job. He called it Snagajob.com. And millions of job seekers lined up to be Shawn’s new BFF.

Fulfilling dreams and taking names

It all started with a job board, and for a while that was enough, but a few years ago we began to realize Snagajob could do more than just show job seekers who was hiring. We started asking hourly workers all over the country if they would like to join a community dedicated to supporting them. Over 25 million of them said yes. They told us about their obstacles. Then we created tools and services to remove those, so they could find the right jobs and start living those dreams. We did the same thing for employers. We asked. We listened. And they told us just how complex the hiring and management process could be. So we built them a comprehensive talent management system with built-in sourcing to make their dreams of a better, more efficient workplace come true.

Onward and upward

We’ve grown a lot as a company since Shawn’s light bulb moment. We’ve added more Snaggers, moved cities, moved buildings and celebrated huge milestones. But we’re still focused on just one thing -- fulfilling the dreams of hourly workers and those who employ them. We know there will always be new challenges to be met. We know because we’re still listening. And we’re still doing whatever it takes to help everyone we know maximize their potential and live more fulfilling lives.
