Woman-owned pet tech start-up launches first employment search engine dedicated to the pet industry
July 24, 2021, Los Angeles, California – PackHire, a new employment search engine and recruiting firm exclusive to the pet industry, announces its official launch. PackHire serves the pet-loving community through its platform, packhire.com, where job seekers can search for jobs in a variety of industries such as veterinary care, grooming, and boarding, dog training, rescues & non-profits, pet food, retail, pet insurance, as well as exciting new pet care start-ups — at no cost. Employers can post jobs, search the candidate resume database, and work with industry expert recruiters to find quality candidates with niche backgrounds for their pet business.
Approximately 23 million households acquired a pet during the pandemic. (Source: ASPCA). The spike in pet adoptions, coupled with investors pouring over $2 billion of venture funding into global pet-focused startups since 2017, sparked the growth of innovative pet products and services. “These businesses need talented, passionate staff to operate and continue to innovate,” said PackHire Founder Seda Bolulu. With nearly two million jobs available in the pet industry today, PackHire aims to help support this growing job market segment. (Source: Crunchbase)
“PackHire was created by pet people for pet people,” said Bolulu. “Through extensive market research we discovered that the name job boards created for the masses were not sufficiently catering to the rapidly growing $100B pet industry, and we wanted to build the platform where employers and candidates can easily and cost-efficiently find their pack!”
Since its soft launch in February 2021, PackHire has served two of the largest animal hospital and pet resort chains in North America as well as doggie daycare, grooming, and boutique retail shops. With over 1,000 active users, PackHire is on a mission to get pet-loving Americans back to work in an industry that will leave our tails wagging.
Prospective investors, retailers, and business partners can meet the PackHire team at the Super Zoo pet industry trade show in Las Vegas, NV August 16-19, where it will be a featured pet tech startup in the Innovation Incubator. Stop by booth #7367 for demos and an opportunity to chat with their industry expert recruiting consultants.
PackHire is also active in our community and is partnering with South Los Angeles Animal Shelter for a virtual adoption and donation Brunch in honor of National Mutt Day on Saturday, July 31. The event will be hosted on Instagram Live. Grab a coffee or mimosa and follow @packhire and @southla_animalshelter to view adoptable pets and find out how you can support the animals and volunteers.
