Canvas Recruit is the beauty industry’s latest recruitment, education and networking platform. Developed by two seasoned industry veterans, Jen and Matt Martinelli, this platform will provide cosmetology students and professionals the ability to create beautiful digital ​canvases (resumes), apply for jobs and collaborate with like-minded individuals.


The multi-functional platform will help bridge the gap and connect stylists with business owners and managers looking to hire. In addition, Canvas Recruit empowers salon owners and management to make better hiring decisions for their specific culture and needs, decreasing unwanted turnover.


For Business Owners​:

Business owners can browse beauty ​canvases based on custom filters and business requirements. Canvas Recruit then matches them with hair pros that fit all of their qualifications regarding their business needs. Additionally, business owners can create ​business​ canvases, post job listings, network and learn from the industry’s best leaders. 


For Beauty Students or Professionals:

Canvas Recruit is more than just a platform for making career moves. It also allows you to create a digital resume as a representation of your work and allows you to connect, network and collaborate with other professionals in the beauty space. You never know when the opportunity to work backstage at a show or when an ad for extra hands at a beauty event will pop up. This site allows you to expand your horizon in so many ways!


Canvas Recruit Co-Founders Jen and Matt Martinelli


Canvas Recruit was founded by Jen and Matt Martinelli, two dynamic beauty industry veterans with exceptional experience in technology and communications. Jen brings her senior-level marketing experience based in the tech industry to the company, while Matt’s strong background in communications and PR in the tech space gives them a unique perspective and advantage on what has been missing in this area.


“Our purpose and goals are to empower and inspire beauty professionals everywhere to find the best career opportunities,” says Jen. “I wholeheartedly understand what it’s like to be in a role that doesn’t resonate with the core essence of who you are and so this purpose, this platform, is truly from a place in my heart. We want to help you Find. Your. People.”
