Hey Everyone, Postabounty is something we wanted for our own hiring needs and figured we'd go ahead and make it. We think there is room for a crowdsourced hiring platform that fits the collaborative consumption mold. Who else knows faster about someone entering the job force than that person's friends? The way it works is pretty simple. If you're looking for a collaborator or new hire, post a bounty on that position to let our community help you fill it. On the flip side, if you think you know someone who could be a good fit for a posted bounty, simply refer them and collect the bounty if they're ultimately hired. No sign up required (we connect all parties via email). I'd love to hear your thoughts today as we work to improve Postabounty. Thank you! -Paul

I've been using the Treatings app for over a year and loving it. Nice to see the team heading into hiring as well, looks like something that could be very useful for us!

A lot of people have tried this model, from Bounty Jobs on down. Makes sense in principal... but the crowdsourced bounty companies never seem to grow fast. I think it's because the candidate sourcers never want to pay the platform that connects them to the job rec. Bounties on homepage here look low - so maybe that will encourage usage - but then again, once sourcer has lead they can go directly to company & get larger payment.
