  • You have a desire to do impactful work every day to connect flexible jobseekers with hourly positions through a seamless app experience


Our Culture:

Adia is the on-demand staffing platform for hospitality. We give hotels, event managers, and food service businesses a better way to find the people they need. Unlike other gig platforms, we hire our workers to Adia as W-2. That means they get to keep their flexible schedule, and still get taxes withheld, benefits, and weekly pay. Launched in Switzerland back in October 2016, Adia opened an office in Austin in early 2018. Today workers on our platform are located in Austin, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, and New Orleans.

Adia is a fast-growing, hardworking, curious (like, Alice in Wonderland curious) organization that strives for improvement every day. We are open, honest, and motivated, using our big brains to build a great product and not overgrown egos. We’re an early player in the HR tech space, which brings excitement and purpose to our work. If you’re looking for a place that will help you uncover your best working self and give you hands-on experience in way more than your job title alludes to, we may be the right team for you.

We have an incredible future ahead of us, and we’d love for you to be a part of our journey toward it.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Taking initiative is important on the Community Support team: both from a learning aspect and a functional one. We're a curious group who is constantly asking questions, and we are also quick to jump in and help our teammates rather than waiting to be asked.


Community Support

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Being a global company, I rely heavily on my local teams to bring their market expertise to drive initiatives that are tailored to the cultures and trends in their respective countries. They are our boots on the ground, so we empower them to bring their ideas forward. It then it becomes my job to feed that into our company's overall direction.



How does the company support your career growth?

Adia gave me the opportunity to shift from my comfort zone in Marketing to a whole new world by joining the Product team. I never would have known that I would grow and succeed in a different career path had management not seen something in me and given me a chance. I challenge myself and learn new skills daily, and I have Adia to thank for that.
