How to Get Hired

We asked Inspire for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Live it, Coach it, Study it, Own it, and Crush It are the five core values you will live by as an Inspire Avenger. Avengers are relentlessly curious and accountable. We have a strong bias towards action and choose purpose in every aspect of our lives.  We’re always looking for people who balance passion with purpose and profit. Avengers challenge the status quo; while helping others discover their greatest strengths without ever compromising their ethics. We seek talented individuals who keep a beginner's mindset; stay humble, harnesses their creativity and boldness - and never surrender!

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Do something Inspired! We also take employee referrals seriously so, connect with your network. Don’t have a connection to someone at Inspire? We vet candidates in three specific ways:  1. You have great hard and soft skills to do the job, and you’re eager to keep learning. 2. Your attitude reflects our core values and company culture. You bring unique and value-adding perspectives.  3. Inspire is a good fit for your career goals, and the kind of work environment that makes you happy.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We're hiring! We expect continued growth throughout the rest of this year and beyond. Please check out the “About Us” section of our website to stay updated on the positions we're actively hiring for. We’re always on the hunt for unique Avengers to join our Tribe, specifically in our Product, Tech, Operations and Sales functions.
