CrowdHired launched by Skorks and two others

By Vasudev Ram - | @vasudevram |

CrowdHired is a new startup that recently launched. The team consists of Alan Skorkin, a Ukrainian software developer from Kharkiv (Kharkov) who now lives in Australia and blogs at . I've read some of his blog posts earlier and found them interesting. Many of them are on the topic of software craftsmanship, and one was about writing a web spider in Ruby, IIRC.

[ UPDATE: Here is that post of his about writing a web crawler in Ruby: ]

Though I haven't checked out CrowdHired in detail yet (I applied for an invite very recently), I read some of the description of it, and it seems to have an interesting approach to online hiring. As readers can guess from the name of the site, it seems to apply the concept of crowdsourcing to the area of hiring. How it does that is an exercise left to the reader :)
