Ladders, Inc. is a United States-based company providing an online job search service. It launched listing only vetted job offers with annual salaries of $100,000 or more. On 19 September, 2011 they removed the $100k minimum salary requirement, opening the site to job seekers who didn't meet the previous experience/value qualification.[1]

History[edit]

Ladders was founded in July 2003, to fill a perceived void in the executive online job seeking market.[2]

Ladders seeks to make its listings more useful to employers seeking executive personnel by utilizing a reverse business model that caters to the high-end job seeker.

Operations and business model[edit]

Ladders is headquartered in New York,[3] Job seekers pay a subscription fee in order to access postings in their field.[4]

When Ladders first launched, employers were able to post openings at no charge. However, as the company evolved, Ladders moved toward a subscription service for both employers and executive recruiters.[4]
