Hi there! I'm Evan, one of the Co-founders at Scholars. I run our engineering team that currently consists of myself and 3 other incredible engineers. It is a really exciting time to join the company as we are small but growing rapidly. We are looking for someone with who is passionate about building user friendly products, has experience managing or working within a large dev team, and is comfortable taking ownership of major technical decisions.

Quick Overview

We help companies create engaging candidate journeys in order to predict and prevent reneges.

About Scholars

We are currently closing a $3.25M seed round. However, our story dates back to April 2017, when we (Evan, Parker, and Ben) started our first company together. The three of us were undergrads at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, when we started our first business, QuikFix. QuikFix was a service that matched local homeowners with college students to complete odd jobs and chores for them. This is where our passion for the early-career recruiting industry began.

Over the next couple of years, the business grew from a website and a GroupMe to a mobile app used by thousands of homeowners and students across Memphis and Nashville.

During the end of the QuikFix days, we began getting requests from businesses asking to be matched with students for internships rather than manual labor. This was the first iteration (of many) of what is now Scholars. Our platform helps companies create personalized candidate experiences and collect insights to predict and prevent early-career turnover. Scholars is used by companies like DICK’s Sporting Goods, CDW, and GoPuff, to name a few.

We launched this platform in July of 2021 and have grown rapidly over the last eight months: acquiring customers, raising a seed round, and now hiring great people who want to grow this business with us.
