Zao

What do we do?

Create a job, set a reward, and forward to your entire network, or only the people you trust the most, depending on the nature of the position.

Zao will help the people who receive your job description automatically search through the list of hundreds of people they know and identify the top candidates.

About us

Zao passionately believes that your professional and personal networks can yield referrals just as well as your employees. We also think that in a world where our contacts (and most of their resumes) are mapped out on social networks, it doesn't make sense to sift through them manually. We've built everything in Zao around these two concepts:
  1. Make it easy to reward all the people that help you make successful hires, whether they work for your company or not.
  2. Make it easy for referrers to recommend friends by matching your job description to the capabilities of their friends.

Hire well, fast!

Giving back - share the upside

At Zao we believe giving can be as rewarding as receiving.

We allow referrers to allocate part of, or even all of their referral bonus reward to a good cause of their choice. This makes helping a friend hire or get a job even sweeter.

We know it feels good because we did it too: we donated a portion of our founding shares to Tmura (www.tmura.org) - a non-profit that receives donations of equity from high-tech companies and, upon a liquidity event, allocates the proceeds to education and youth-related charities. Tmura exits have generated over $6 million to date, and we hope to help that grow even more!
