The Rocket Story

Rocket was founded by serial entrepreneurs who were frustrated with their recruiting partners when growing their past startups.
In 2017, our founders started Rocket with a mission to help companies develop their most important asset - their workforce.
Unlike other recruiting agency leaders, they had lived through hiring at scale in multiple startup environments as well had deep experience building software products. This directly translated into a vision of how Rocket would change the landscape of recruiting:
  • Build practical AI recruiting technology that makes a measurable improvement in recruiting
  • Train empathetic and thoughtful technical recruiters with a long term focus
  • Relentlessly focus on service for both clients and candidates
Today, Rocket is headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley but has recruiters all over the US & Canada serving the needs of our growing client base.
