About Josh

Josh Tolan, Spark Hire’s Founder and CEO, was studying Economics at the University of California, San Diego. While going to school, he worked in marketing for a lead generation firm that grew from a handful of employees to 100+ in less than a year. He witnessed the challenges in the hiring process firsthand. A massive amount of time and effort was being wasted on the wrong candidates.

When driving from Chicago to San Diego for his final year at UCSD (2010-2011,) Josh knew that the company he was working for couldn’t be the only one struggling with its hiring process. That’s when the idea for Spark Hire popped into Josh’s head and he pulled over in Denver to start brainstorming on how to make Spark Hire a reality.

Fast forward to February 2012 and Spark Hire officially launched to the public. Today, more than 6,000 of the world’s most respected brands trust Spark Hire to help them connect with the best job candidates faster and easier than ever before.

We’re on a mission to help every organization improve their recruiting efficiency and effectiveness by delivering an innovative and modern SaaS platform. It’s our goal for Spark Hire to be a staple in the recruiting process of every company everywhere in the world.
