The answers below are provided by members of FounderSociety, an invitation-only organization comprised of ambitious startup founders and business owners.
We’ve found ZipRecruiter to be very helpful in both sourcing and managing applicant materials. It posts to numerous job boards with one click. The platform helps streamline the interview and hiring process itself and has an online feature to screen applicants. Everything is stored in one place, and we can manage multiple job postings and resumes. It’s an easy platform to use.

Our agency frequently utilizes Indeed for our hiring needs. We found that Indeed’s organic listings were often at the top of the search when we searched for marketing jobs as candidates ourselves. As a marketing agency, we could expect those listings to get the most visibility with savvy web users.

I use Craigslist – it’s free to list in the gigs section. I found my first hire there as well as some bloggers, and I’ve been satisfied. AngelList also seems great. I haven’t hired anyone there, but there seem to be a lot of candidates with a startup mindset. I also use Streak to track my applicants: It’s a CRM built within Gmail and free for up to 200 emails/applicants. Finally, Gusto is great for signing W-9s, payroll, and reporting.

5. Typeform and Salesforce
Typeform and Salesforce are my go-to strategies for hiring employees. Typeform has a modern form that accurately receives information from all potential employees, and Salesforce keeps track of all my contact with employees.
