Last February, we introduced Pear Talent Services to the public. At the core of our announcement was our promise to directly hire the most crucial talent for our founders—a commitment we extend to every company we invest in. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve made 100 hires for our founders, marking a significant milestone in our journey.

To mark this occasion, we wanted to share a few trends that emerged from our initial 100 hires.

We specialize in supporting early stage companies and the distribution of hires reflects just that.

The vast majority of hires made were technical, particularly founding or early Engineers.

75% of hires came directly from other tech companies. 

21% of hires attended either Stanford, CMU or Berkeley.

Hiring has shifted back to in-person or hybrid roles, with only 25% of positions being remote.
