Based in both Silicon Valley and Medellin, Hourly is a people platform designed for small businesses to help them track time, pay and insure their workforce.
The idea for Hourly originated from CEO & Co-Founder Tom Sagi, who worked at his family-owned construction business, a process he described as a “weekly nightmare” that took up days processing payroll, sorting through time cards, and managing workers’ compensation reporting.
To help ease these pain points, Sagi teamed up with Co-Founder Shay Litvak, a veteran technologist with more than 20 years of experience, and together they created the technology platform known as Hourly.
Facts about Hourly
- Hourly has two offices in Palo Alto, California, and Medellin, Colombia
- The Hourly platform is currently active in California
- The staff consists of 20+ employees
- The company was founded 3 years ago and launched last year
- Hourly has been a Recruitee user since November 2019
Sagi has been running the business for three years from his offices in both Palo Alto, California and Medellin, Colombia. His growing workforce consists of 20 employees, including mobile app designers, engineers, sales and HR professionals. The company is in the process of doubling its team and expanding into two more states before the end of the year.
Sagi said: “We’re at a stage where we have the resources to grow our great team this year. Our biggest challenge is keeping on top of the myriad payroll taxes in each state and ensuring we’re compliant every step of the way. Having top talent at the helm is essential to achieving our goals this year.”
How Recruitee helped Hourly with their hiring process
Sagi added: “My role as a CEO is to bring the best talent to work for us, in order to do that we needed an effective ATS platform. Prior to using Recruitee, our hiring process lacked formality and structure. Our HR manager was constantly filling out documentation, which would slow the hiring process down. It would also be difficult for us to follow our recruitment process thoroughly from start to end.
“With plans to grow our workforce, we needed an ATS to help us stay on top of all the hiring admin. We’ve been using Recruitee since November 2019 and have benefited greatly from the technical interview formats, scheduling software, and automated features.
Recruitee has helped us with our entire hiring process. I personally like how intuitive the platform is to use.
“Compared with our previous platform, where we didn’t really know what was happening, Recruitee’s dashboard enables us to see exactly where we stand with our hiring process, which is beneficial to anyone involved in the recruiting process. Currently, this includes me and our HR manager. However, with the plan to scale our hiring efforts, there is a likelihood that more team members will be involved in the hiring process, therefore transparency is essential.
“I like that I can see how many candidates we have interviewed, who we’ve discarded and why, and send out the necessary emails to candidates. Best of all, Recruitee helps me to visualize how to get to our hiring goals faster.”
“Growing our team exponentially is a key goal of ours and we’re confident we can do that with the Recruitee platform. Beyond expanding to new states this year, we’d love to expand internationally in the future. But first, we hire!”
