What’s Uncommon?

Despite a continued influx of companies, technologies, and investment in the employment space, both hiring and job seeking remain incredibly difficult, time-consuming, and expensive processes. Uncommon has developed disruptive technology, a beautifully designed product, and an innovative business model to transform the way that people find jobs and employers find talent. We have the vision, the team, and the resources to bring much-needed disruptive change to this deeply inefficient and outdated marketplace. This has the potential for far-reaching positive social and economic consequences.

Uncommon is led by two serial entrepreneurs,  (, sold to eBay for $620 million in 2005, and, sold to Aol for $405 million in 2013) who deeply understand what it takes to build and grow industry-changing marketplaces. We are investing deeply in product, engineering, and data science to solve this long-standing thorny problem in previously unimagined ways.

We have a small (20) but incredibly capable team, and a strong positive culture that allows us to collaborate and be highly productive together.
