Hyre is a comprehensive HR platform that helps businesses of all sizes, across different industries, manage their shift-based workforce by providing the tools that enable them to thrive, including employee shift scheduling, automated timesheets, digital time clocks, team messaging, and a built-in temp staffing pool.

We started by tackling the $100 billion problem in the event staffing space by creating a successful platform that allows hospitality professionals to take control of their external staffing. We quickly onboarded many high-end clients such as the Hilton, Delta, Westin, Marriott, Ritz Carleton, across Toronto and Ottawa.
As many start-ups do, we evolved to help our clients with their additional needs. We proudly extended our product to help them with their internal staffing tasks such as managing their workforce, tracking time-and-attendance, payroll, invoicing, etc. We also expanded into healthcare during COVID. (What a pivot!)

We are an ambitious early-stage startup, looking for a motivated and experienced Lead Developer.
