At Pattern we're building our founding engineering team to power the company during our hyper growth stage.
Pattern is a technology-based staffing platform that connects gig workers with jobs around them, on demand, every single hour.
Our platform gives businesses like retail chains and warehouses instant access to pre-screened, trained temporary workforce that makes staff management more transparent and efficient.
This is an exciting emerging space (you may see it referred to as digital staffing) that has seen significant interest and investment from venture capitalists.
Pattern is one of the break-out companies in this space that is using technology to disrupt the existing, traditional staffing companies.
Pattern is operating in stealth mode. It has raised several million dollars in funding from venture capitalists. The company is experiencing exponential growth and every day is an exciting, fun, energizing day of work.
There are fifty employees at the company across New York, Toronto and Vancouver.
