With a team of 22 people, a zippy new brand, and shiny new headquarters, flourishing San Francisco startup DeveloperAuctions is now Hired, and co-founders Matt Mickiewicz, Allan Grant, and Douglas Feirstein have plenty of reasons to pop the champaigne corks, which reportedly flowed as of 10 AM on a recent September morning.

With over 500+ approved employers, and over half a billion dollars in job offers extended through their platform, Hired represents Software Engineers, UX/UI Designers, Product Managers, and Data Scientists alike, with the goal of “innovating the status quo by making the hiring experience as seamless and efficient as possible.”

Along with the new name comes a brand new look, along with an expansion to five major markets: San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, LA, and NYC.

Earlier this year, Hired announced its $2.7 million Series A round from a consortium of leading VCs, including SoftTech, Google Ventures, and New Enterprise Associates.
