What is HireVibes?

HireVibes connects jobseekers, employers, referrers and recruiters on a new job search platform (Dapp) based on the EOS blockchain. HireVibes aims to disrupt the hiring process by leveraging peer referrals to fill open positions, creating a fair incentive model with reasonable recruiter fees, and giving to a worthy cause everytime a role is filled through HireVibes.

What is the main goal of HireVibes?

Helping people find great jobs, helping companies (startup's, DAC's, non-profits etc.) build great teams and giving back to the global community using a fair incentive model.

How is HireVibes different than other job search platforms?

HireVibes is empowering a world that values people over profits. We are the antithesis of the current, pervasive model of wealth accumulating at the top. We believe that all people are equal and have a right to the pursuit of happiness. That is why the HireVibes platform is built to help you find the right job or hire the right person, but also to help each other. Help friends and colleagues in their job search with a peer referral and giveback to the global community - a donation is made to a great cause everytime someone is hired through the HireVibes platform.

How does HireVibes improve the job search?

  1. HireVibes job postings are transparent in sharing details so identifying a good match is easy
  2. HireVibes uses a fair incentive model for recruiters and peer referrals
  3. Users have control over their data and can choose whether to make their profile public or private

What is the total HVT token supply?

The total (max) token supply is 350 million HVT (HireVibes Tokens)

How are tokens allocated?

  • 250 million HVT (71.43% of the supply) will be airdropped to the EOS community - see the Airdrop section below for more details
  • 50 million HVT (14.29% of the supply) will be distributed to the HireVibes launch team using a vesting schedule
  • 40 million HVT (11.43% of the supply) will be allocated to the HireVibes partnership fund which will be managed by the HireVibes Foundation; the partnership fund exists to secure partners that will support the DAPP and build the HireVibes ecosystem
  • 10 million HVT (2.86% of the supply) will be used to setup the HireVibes Foundation; the HireVibes Foundation is responsible for ongoing DAPP development and exists to support the growth of the HireVibes ecosystem

How will I receive my surplus HVT?

After the public beta release of HireVibes Dapp in early 2019, the daily token distribution of HVT will be generated on every hire made through the platform. To receive the token distribution of HVT, at least 1 HVT needs to be ‘’staked’’ in an EOS supported wallet or using myeostoolkit.io. The amount of HVT received per account will depend on the amount of HVT staked by the account holder.

When is the HireVibes Airdrop happening?

There are two claim windows when EOS token holders will be able to claim HVT.

Claim Invitation Periods:

  1. Nov 5th 2018 @ 01:00 UTC to Dec 5th 2018 @ 01:00 UTC
  2. Dec 19th 2018 @ 01:00 UTC to Jan 2nd 2019 @ 01:00 UTC

How many tokens will I get?

HVT will be distributed in a 1:4 ratio. This means, for example, as a holder of 100 EOS you will be able to claim 25 HVT. Large account holders (accounts with over 1 million EOS) will be airdropped a maximum 250K HVT

What is the process to claim HVT during the airdrop?

There are two methods in which to claim HVT during the airdrop:

  1. Transfer any amount of tokens from your wallet to another one; by claiming any amount of tokens you will receive all the tokens available to you
  2. Claim tokens through the HireVibes.io website or https://eostoolkit.io/home

Which exchanges will support the airdrop?

A number of exchanges have confirmed support of the HVT airdrop, see the HireVibes.io website or contact your exchange and ask if they plan to support it. We are only working with exchanges that have confirmed that the airdropped tokens will be distributed to individual token holders on the exchange.

It is recommended that you hold your EOS tokens in an EOS wallet to avoid possible disappointment.

What happens to unclaimed tokens?

HV tokens that are unclaimed by EOS token holders will be pulled back to HireVibes Development Limited account through a process called “skyhook”.

What happens if not all tokens are distributed by the end of the second airdrop?

HireVibes will consider further token distribution to all confirmed accounts or create another claim invitation period based on demand and token supply.

How do I best reach HireVibes about questions regarding the airdrop?

What is a DAC?

A Decentralized Autonomous Community (DAC), sometimes referred to as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), is a community or organization that operates based on a set of rules agreed on by its community of token holders; these rules are coded into smart contracts and operate automatically, or autonomously. Each DAC determines its own set of rules to follow. HireVibes utilizes smart contracts in the EOS.IO Blockchain, which is a secure digital ledger that offers a host of functionality and programmability options to DAPP developers.

Where is the HireVibes DAC Constitution? What is the role of the HireVibes DAC?

The first version of the HireVibes DAC Constitution will be released early in 2019, at which time the community will be able to provide feedback and proposals to amend.

The HireVibes DAC will be active after the Constitution and the public beta of the DAPP are released.

In brief, the HireVibes DAC will be governed collectively by its token holders to manage the resources of the community via periodic votes. Any changes that community members would like to see made to HireVibes can be proposed, voted on by the entire HireVibes community - this makes HireVibes a true decentralized and community-owned platform.

What is the difference between the HireVibes DAC and the HireVibes Foundation?

The HireVibes DAC is the community of HVT token holders who stake their tokens and participate in voting, details to be provided in the HireVibes DAC Constitution.

The HireVibes Foundation is a Swiss non-profit GMBH (currently being established) that serves to grow the HireVibes ecosystem and is responsible for ongoing development of the HireVibes DAPP.

The HireVibes Foundation operates in accordance to the direction provided by the HireVibes DAC as determined by bi-annual voting. The Foundation is also responsible for providing transparent reporting of activity back to the DAC.

Ultimately, should the Foundation fail to uphold the direction as provided by the DAC, the DAC reserves the right to vote on the removal of the Foundation.

The HireVibes DAC will use tools provided by https://eosdac.io/ and Discord to manage the community, voting, communication, etc.

How does the HireVibes incentive model work?

Employers are charged a 7.5% fee when they hire a candidate through the HireVibes Dapp; 4% is shared with the person hired for the role; if a peer referred the successful candidate, this 4% is split evenly between the referrer and hired individual.

For every position filled through the HireVibes Dapp, 1% is donated to a charity; the successful candidate can select which humanitarian or environmental project he/she would like to support through the HireVibes Dapp.

How much does it cost to use the HireVibes platform?

It is free to post open positions on HireVibes, employers only pay a 7.5% fee when a hire is made. Employers also have the option to add a Recruiter to facilitate the search and hiring process for an extra 2.5% fee. The cost of using HireVibes Dapp will be approximately half the normal cost of using a traditional centralized recruitment agency.

Will employers be able to hide their company name on a job posting?

Yes. Some employers may not want to disclose their company name; however, we estimate over 90% of jobs posted on HireVibes Dapp will display the hirer’s details.

When will the prototype be available?

The first HireVibes (user) prototype will be available on Nov 5th 2018. We anticipate launching a second (technical) prototype in December 2018.

How do I access the prototype?

Scatter is required to access the prototype. More details coming soon.

What charities does HireVibes partner with?

Wells for Zoë is our first charity partner; it is an Irish volunteer organization working in Northern Malawi since 2005. The organization’s main focus is giving the rural poor access to clean, safe drinking water. They manufacture a simple plastic hand pump in Mzuzu, a city in Northern Malawi, which is designed to be easy for village women to use and only costs €80 to make. This pump can supply up to 500 people with clean water for life. When a well is installed in a village with this hand pump, less time is spent transporting water from far distances - girls are able to return to school and women have time for other activities. People are no longer too sick to work; gardens are watered and more food is grown; health greatly improves and children grow up into a better quality of life. A simple well can break the cycle of poverty and change lives forever. For more on Wells for Zoë visit: http://wellsforzoe.org.

What is the process for new charities and non-profit organizations to be listed on HireVibes?

HireVibes will have an open application process. This means that any non-profit organization that would like donations will be able to apply to be listed on the HireVibes Donation Portal. The HireVibes Foundation will perform due diligence on charity applications and provide data to the HireVibes DAC on the best (most viable and transparent) charities to vote on to be listed on HireVibes Dapp.

How will fraud be prevented in the Donation Portal?

To be listed as a donation recipienton HireVibes Dapp, all charities and non-profit organizations must provide an itemized list of goods and services purchased using the donation fund. Charities and non-profit organizations that do not comply will be removed from the Donation Portal. The HireVibes development team have been working on a ‘proof-of-donation’ feature to ensure this transparency. The HireVibes Foundation will take an active role in ensuring the integrity of all organisations listed on the Donation Portal.
