The organization

When its founders launched Recruitee, they knew first-hand how time-consuming the recruitment process can be. They saw the need for an easy to use tool that could provide a clear overview of the entire hiring process. That’s why they developed an intuitive, cloud-based Applicant Tracking System (ATS) that supports hiring processes every step of the way. The scaleup empowers organizations to work together and build talented teams using a tool that is accessible to everyone.

Recruitee’s SaaS solution is tailored to SMB and mid-market businesses across industries that employ up to about one thousand employees. Their number one collaborative hiring software provides the tailored features to support a strategic, seamless and collaborative recruitment process. Customers can leverage Recruitee’s software to build custom pipelines, attract and source top talent, evaluate candidates, organize and automate recruitment processes and enhance employer branding.
