About SpareHire

SpareHire is an online work marketplace that enables organizations to find and engage top-tier finance and consulting professionals for project-based work.

High-end finance and consulting skill sets have historically been limited to the select few large organizations that can afford the high cost of engaging an expensive firm or hiring a professional on a full-time basis. The rest of the world, including boutique investment firms, consulting firms and small businesses, has limited access to these skill sets.

At the same time, investment bankers, management consultants and investment professionals are seeking new ways to utilize their skills and expand their networks, while gaining control over their personal and professional lives.

We use technology to increase connectivity between these two groups in a discreet and confidential manner, and foster a flexible work solution for the modern organization and professional in the digital era.

SpareHire was founded in 2013 and is based in New York City.
