We, the founders of Zippia, have hired hundreds of people during our professional lives. We realized that quite often, people don’t know much about their career options, and how to change or advance their career. While we tried our best to mentor them, it was frustrating to know that there were still millions of people out there who we couldn’t help.
And then we noticed something else: The internet can answer almost any of our questions today – how to build a house, how to buy a car, or how to find love. But even though choosing a career is one of the most important decisions of our life, there is very little reliable guidance available online.
This is why we decided to build a platform that gives everybody the tools to find the career that is right for them.
We gathered experts in the fields of technology, marketing, and engineering who were passionate about improving career outcomes for everyone. And finally, in May 2015, we founded Zippia. We believe that everyone should be able to make career decisions with their eyes wide open. That’s why we’ve built the most intelligent and personalized resource for your career questions.

Zippia was co-founded in early 2015 by tech industry veteran Henry Shao and Chris Kolmar, who met while working at Shao’s previous company, Movoto. After Movoto was acquired by Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd., Shao and Kolmar left the company to found Zippia.

CEO and co-founder Henry Shao says, “I have personally hired hundreds of people throughout my career and realized that, quite often, they neither know much about their career options nor how to change or advance their career. While I try my best to mentor the people close to me, it was frustrating to know there are many underprivileged groups that don’t have access to mentors. I want to put all the available career information online so that we can help everyone achieve their career goals.”
