Privately held HotSchedules occupies 5,500 square feet at 6504 Bridge Point Parkway in North Austin and will take an additional 5,000 square feet there in October.

HotSchedules specializes in online software designed for staff scheduling and labor management in the restaurant industry. The company currently employs 50 people in Austin, as well as one person in Dallas and another person in Minneapolis.

Note to prospective employees: More than 75 percent of HotSchedules staffers have worked in the restaurant business.

“We foster a team environment, and it creates a unique culture centered around meaningful relationships,” the company tells AustInnovation™. “We have each other’s best interest in mind, and we love to see each other grow personally and professionally.”

HotSchedules has high standards for its workers, according to the company’s website. The company says its employees are “zealots” when it comes to customer service.

“At HotSchedules, we recruit only the most exceptional individuals—people with a strong passion for collaboration and the development of fresh ideas,” the company says. “We offer a variety of opportunities for you to imagine, explore and realize your potential … . We’re looking for people who want to think strategically, create with passion and have fun while doing it in a casual, flexible work environment.”

That environment includes HotFit team-building exercises and the quarterly HotBall tournament. To view a video of the HotFit plank challenge, click here.

“HotSchedules was the first to market a powerful, flexible and cost-effective, web-based … employee-scheduling solution targeted specifically for restaurants. Prior to that, restaurants all managed their schedules with a slow, cumbersome paper-based system,” Pawlikowski says.
