Who we are

Bar Raiser helps companies unlock their growth by hiring better. We teach you how to hire top talent, so you can hit your key milestones.

In 2013, Nick Dimitrov co-founded Amazon Game Studios (AGS) in a series of direct pitches to Amazon’s CEO at the time, Jeff Bezos. AGS has since invested more than a billion dollars in the gaming space, by acquiring the game-streaming platform Twitch, developing its own 3D game engine (O3DE), and building hit internal games (New World).

Nick also became an Amazon Bar Raiser, one of that small number of Amazonians, who decide whether the company should hire a job candidate or not. As a Bar Raiser, Nick interviewed more than 350 job applicants and determined whether they raised the company’s hiring bar.

In 2018, Nick left Amazon to start Bar Raiser, a company that helps scale-ups hit their growth milestones, such as a new product launch or an IPO, by teaching them how to hire the best-quality talent that consistently raises their bar. We help companies unlock their growth by hiring better.

Bar Raiser’s customers are primarily rapidly growing tech companies of 400 to 4,000+ employees, who interview roughly 200+ candidates monthly, and whose organizations span across distributed global hubs. Functionally, our customers come from industries such as hospitality, gaming, telecommunications, e-learning, and cloud security.
