Is Otta good for employers?

Otta receives requests from 100s of companies every month to sign up and invests significant resources in setting companies up for success which is why their selection is strict. If your startup or small business is not growing quickly, has not raised significant venture capital funding or does not intend to advertise multiple jobs on an ongoing basis, it is likely that your business will not be accepted as part of the Otta application process.  Other reasons include hiring for a small number of roles in a competitive space or not being the type of company that candidates come to Otta looking for. If you are unsuccessful, you are welcome to apply again if your hiring requirements change significantly or ramp up.
