Our Story

Imagine that you were in a competition to find 10 red balloons placed around the country, with a huge prize to the winner. What would you do? Analyze satellite images? Drive around? How long would it take you to find all 10?

Thanks to the Red Balloon Challenge, we learned that it can be done in less than a day. The winning team's secret was to give a share of the prize not only to the person who found the balloon, but also to everyone in the chain that helped recruit that person. This allowed them to build a massive network of searchers in just a few days.

We’re starting RedBalloons because we think the same strategy could help solve one of the hardest search problems out there: recruiting amazing people. If you’ve ever hired, you know how hard it is to find the right person for your role. If you’ve ever hunted for a job, you know how frustrating it can be to submit resumes and never hear back. We want to make recruiting fast, easy, and rewarding for everyone involved, and we’d love for you to join us on this mission (and make some money along the way)!

“Recruiting is a huge challenge for every start-up out there. This will level the playing field, giving them access to a massive referral network currently available only to the giants.”
