What is Recruitee?

To cut to the chase, Recruitee is the best Applicant Tracking System I have tested this year so far. You ever try a product and think, “They made this for me!” You know like you look at something and say, “Finally, I have needed something like this for years!” That is how I felt when I tried Recruitee.  It is so freaking easy; it was fun.  Not kidding.  And it is not “stupid”  like those ATS systems that force you to create a requisition number.  Or an ATS that expects candidates to spend 30 minutes filling out an application. Think about it.  Recruiters these days also have to be data analysts, report writers, marketing professionals, copywriters and Social Media experts.

The days of settling for a tool that does not do all of these things are over

As a reviewer of recruiting technology, let me tell you, everyone says that their software is the best new software out there.  Then I test it only to find that it isn’t new or better at all. When speaking to Perry Oostdam, Co-Founder of Recruitee, he understood the pain points that recruiters experience trying to navigate through current Applicant Tracking System tools. Perry said, “Recruitee derived from our own need. We couldn’t find a tool that was truly intuitive to use, yet contains powerful features.”

Recruitee does not stop here:

  1. Distribute your jobs: Automatically push your job offer to free job boards. Recruitee is integrated, just push the button.
  2. Simple Employer page editor: Your mobile-friendly employer page contains all your open positions. Impress new candidates. check a live site out here
  3. New Apps: Optimize mobile recruiting. Stay up to date on new candidates or emails thanks to smart notifications.
  4. Data: Candidate data is stored in our encrypted servers. We will never use or sell any of your data. Feel free to export.

Recruitee engineers get it. They are always adding new functionality to make Recruitee better. “We like to say that Recruitee is developed by fast-growing companies, for fast-growing companies. We include our users’ feedback in our daily development sprints, which can be experienced throughout the product. The souring extension for Chrome and Firefox, for instance, was created after user feedback. The new career site editor as well: we noticed that many startup team were struggling with their team section. We’ll keep releasing features and fine-tune the product until we’ve got the best tool out there.”

I am telling you after testing Recruitee, I would say they are on track to be the best out there.
