Hi, I'm Alex Rattray.

Entrepeneur, born & raised in Seattle and educated at Wharton ('14).

Product Engineer at Hired in San Francisco.

You can get in touch with me on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Skype, or by email at rattray.alex@gmail.com.

I have been "starting things" for almost as long as I can remember.

In high school, I pitched energy-saving signage to Seattle's electricity utility, started an underground student newspaper, and even sold custom upcycled bookbags.

As a student at Penn, I created skincare products made from simple ingredients and cofounded a bike share before learning to code and building several award-winning hackathon projects and other apps. I also cofounded Emerald Exam, an education technology product funded by First Round Capital's Dorm Room Fund.

After closing Emerald Exam & graduating in 2014, I took a year to travel in Asia, doing remote software consulting. I also took a three-month post at Bangalore-based Babajob.com, a 250-person startup which connects undereducated job seekers with economic opportunities.

In October 2015, I moved to San Francisco and joined Hired, where I hope to play a role in improving the labor market for job-seekers and employers.
