Why Job Protocol?

Reach the best talent

By adding an incentive to your open roles, you incentivize anyone to become a marketeer for your role. Our ecosystem of freelance recruiters, agencies, communities and well-connected people in the space will start asking around who's interested, reaching 10x the relevant candidates you normally would.

Hire faster and cheaper

Working with recruiters can be a pain: they are expensive and require a lot of follow up. Via Job Protocol, you work with hundreds of recruiters & other talent partners in parallel, and you decide the price up-front. You'll find top talent for 50% cheaper than working with an agency.

    Interview pre-vetted candidates

    After listing on Job Protocol, you'll get a ton of candidates. With our expert in the loop AI, your candidates will be vetted, graded and annotated to ensure a strong signal over noise ratio.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How are the placement bounties paid?

    Placement fees can be committed and paid in USD or in USDC. Job Protocol won't cost you anything, unless you hire through the network.

    Is there a rebate period?

    Yes. We use a 90 days rebate window. If the candidate leaves or is asked to leave within 30 days after hiring, 100% of the bounty is refunded. Between 30-60 days it’s 50% and between 60-90 days its 25%. This also implies that the payouts are subject to that same schedule.

    Do you ask any fees?

    We ask a 10% network fee on top of the bounty. This fee is used to review candidates, maintain the platform and grow the network. This fee is paid on the same schedule as the bounty itself.

    What  if a vetted candidate was already part of our funnel?

    We’ll ask you to submit some sort of evidence of when this candidate applied through any of your other channels. We'll compare this with our records, if the candidate applied directly less than 48 hours prior we attribute this to the Talent Partner in our network. If it not, then we don’t count it as submitted through our channel.

    How do you vet candidates?

    With the more than 30,000 candidates that have passed through the network, we're building AI models that allow our in-house expert recruiters to be insanely effective in filtering signal-from-noise.
