Hitmarker and GoHire ink partnership to mutually strengthen recruiting abilities

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, UK | Wednesday 7th September 2022

Hitmarker, the largest video game industry job platform in the world, and GoHire, the best applicant tracking system and recruitment software for startups, have agreed a mutually beneficial revenue sharing partnership aimed at improving the experience of games industry job seekers and hiring companies alike.

The partnership between Hitmarker and GoHire will allow gaming and esports companies referred to GoHire via Hitmarker to post their job listings directly to the Hitmarker platform (https://hitmarker.net) through GoHire’s applicant tracking system (https://gohire.io) in a first-of-its-kind integration for the Newcastle upon Tyne-based video game employment company. It also marks GoHire’s first official partnership in the gaming and esports industry.

The agreement, a long-term revenue share deal between Hitmarker and GoHire, aims to offer startups and small businesses hiring for gaming and esports jobs the best platform to find the right candidates and the best software to manage their hiring processes at an incredibly competitive price point.

It is completely free to post job listings on Hitmarker, and GoHire’s plans start from as little as £690 per year for hiring companies. Companies that use Hitmarker and GoHire in combination instead of relying on traditional recruitment agencies could stand to save tens of thousands of pounds each year, all while hiring smarter and growing faster.

“We’ve been in the esports jobs game for over five years now and are coming up to three years of being involved in the wider video gaming industry. It’s clear that hiring processes still have a lot of improving to do,” commented Rich Huggan, Managing Director of Hitmarker. “It didn’t take us long to decide between further developing our own internal applicant tracking system or partnering up with what we strongly believe to be the best solution on the market.”

“Hitmarker is exactly the type of business GoHire have been targeting partnerships with, and we are delighted to be associated with an organisation that is changing the attraction process for such a vibrant industry,” added David Dewey, CEO of GoHire. “Our approach to improving the process for both candidates and employers is exactly aligned and we can’t wait to further supercharge the hiring process for the users of this esports and gaming trailblazer.”
