About Us

The smarter way to fill roles with sourcing and workflow automation.

Our Mission

Frontier was founded to equip jobseekers and employers with the technology to quickly find one another. The company was founded at the beginning of the pandemic, a time when the labor market was in crisis. With mass layoffs, we knew that employers would  need to hire their teams back. However, the old ways of doing things and their tools wouldn't be good enough to bring their people back. We knew that companies would need to embrace new technologies to provide a more attractive and modern candidate experience.

Enter Frontier, a platform that enables employers and candidates to meet each other seamlessly. We source, screen and then schedule qualified candidates for interviews with employers - super quickly.

We’re backed by the best

Frontier is funded by the founders & backers of Uber, Airbnb, Trulia and many others. We’ve raised funding from NFX, firstminute capital, FJ Labs, The Raine Group, Cyan Bannister and many others.
