Yep. Nothing says fun like a 21' baby blue airstream decked out with iPads and designed to hire employees in a matter of hours.

We'll also advertise the location of your event through our platform to ensure maximum attendance.
Hiring, interviewing, and training hourly workforces has been conducted the same way for decades. As the future of work develops, we want to iterate on the Interview experience to build community and excitement around a stressful job search!
