How much does Hatch cost?

Hatch is currently free during our beta period. In that time you can use Hatch for posting roles and hiring candidates free of charge. We'll make sure to let you know before we start charging.

For certain roles, we offer a service where we handle employment administration and on-hire candidates for you. This service is called “Hire with Hatch” and comes with a fee. ‘Hire with Hatch’ costs 15% of the hourly rate that the candidate earns.
