Hire the best. Fast.

For years we've been okay with the rigidity and the arbitrary outcomes of existing hiring processes. Interviews are terrible. Month-long screenings are not feasible.

And bad hires are often fatal for early stage startups.

We are fixing this by applying the proven lean principles1.
And we're calling it lean hire.

Perfect for hiring long-term and short term

A Letter from Peer

Dear founders,

Who and how you hire is the single most important indicator for your company's success.

Airbnb famously took 6 months to hire their first employee. There are a ton of grueling stories, where founders either had to drastically slow down or compromise on hiring quality.

You shouldn't have to wait 6 months to make your first hire.

Additionally, mistakes in hiring can ruin your company culture or might force you to rewrite your codebase. That's bad.

We are founders of different YC companies and we think there is a better way: we are bringing lean startup methodologies, pioneered by Eric Ries, to hiring and we are kicking it off with the best of the best.

Starting with the Y Combinator network, leanhire.com connects YC Alumni founders with forward-thinking companies who want to make a lean hire.

We hope you will love Lean Hire as much as we have loved building it!

Cheers,
Peer

Contract first,
hire second.

Lean, flexible, output driven hiring.

Run hiring like you
are running product.

Don't lose momentum

If you are hiring the old way, you might not be shipping much for 60 days. In the new way, that happens on day 2.

Plus, both parties start learning about each other in a way far more effective than the traditional screening process.

De-risk both sides of the hiring process.

Interview performance does not correlate with job performance.

Hire full-time when needed. Have the flexibility of contracting.

Hiring
made easy.

Easy 3 step process to begin hiring.
