  • Our Sweet Spot

    Part of your Team

    We want to really understand the role and team, and collaborate with hiring managers. From uncovering and describing why talent would want the role to guiding the team through the interview process.

    Small Companies

    We work best with small companies under 100 people, and can take all, or just your most pressing, open roles.

    Prioritizing People

    You actually give a darn. From giving feedback to applicants to having an efficient interview process. Then, engaging employees after they start. You believe in that stuff. It's the right thing to do, helps build good teams, and makes our job easier.

  • What Clients are Saying

    "Hito has been a fantastic business partner for Animoto, accelerating our time to hire as well as streamlining our interview process. We've been able to hire top engineering and marketing talent with their help. They bring not only deep recruiting instincts but also a broader view of culture and retention to our Company's people services group." - VP of Finance

    "Hito is a great recruiting partner. They truly own the whole process. They can source and assess, but I also trust them to work with hiring managers to understand requirements, collaborate, and to help throughout the interview process. They don't just assess skills fit, but think about culture and team fit, and care about the candidates experience. They are a valuable addition to the team." - VP of Engineering

  • What's New?

  • Recruiter (Part-time)


    We’re a small remote recruiting company. We’re different than most because we care a lot about the candidate experience, improving the hiring process and partnering with companies that share our values. We’re looking for someone who understands the entire recruiting process and can work with initiative.


    We'd like to start with 5-10 hours a week and increase the hours over time.


    We’ll give you a chance to contribute in a meaningful way, and to work where and when is best for you. Drop a line. We want to hear from you! *You must be based in the US*



    • Review sourced profiles 
    • Create email campaigns to prospective candidates 
    • Phone screen candidates 
    • Share candidate profiles with hiring managers 
    • Track meeting notes and information in our systems 
    • Communicate frequently, get help and support, and learn from our small team 
    • Pick up your kids, feed them a snack - set your own days and hours


    • Full cycle recruiting experience (if you haven’t worked with technical roles, you have the ability to) 
    • Appreciation for the candidate experience 
    • Nuance, finesse and emotional intelligence. You know where to explore with candidates to discover if they are a fit. You can identify the key skills needed for a diverse set of clients. 
    • Initiative to identify gaps and inefficiencies and create solutions


    • Work with a team that values, invests and cares about you 
    • Flexible work hours and schedules; work when you need and want to (kids are on spring break? No problem, take off that week!) 
    • Ownership and autonomy over your work 
    • Competitive pay and a bonus structure


    We come from the in-house world of HR and leading teams. We were frustrated by the broken contingency model of recruiting. What happened to truly understanding the team needs and representing the brand to candidates? We do things differently at Hito Labs, truly partnering with hiring managers and becoming a trusted expert on their team. We focus on helping to identify their needs, finding and vetting talent, creating a candidate experience, and getting the right people hired. Our whole team is remote. We value fulfilling work that provides the flexibility to spend time with family, kids and allow us to work from anywhere. We think the future is remote work and we love being part of this movement.
