1. Greenhouse

Tarek PertewWhen I was first introduced to Greenhouse, the first thing I admired was how different it was from existing ATS systems and how obvious the product manager built something that answered modern needs efficiently, rather then improve existing (pretty poor) options. That’s probably why it’s so expensive. But it’s worth it.

2. RemoteInterview

john ramptonRemoteInterview is a great resource that we have used to recruit the best tech talent in the world. We are able to see the work they are doing right there in front of us as they are doing it. This allows us to immediately screen the best candidates.

4. TalentBin

Randy RayessTalentBin is useful because it doesn’t only let you manage the candidate follow up, but also allows you to reach out to and engage with passive candidates on various social media channels.

5. Hired.com

Reuben YonatanHired helps me automate the sourcing process for qualified applicants from a pool of active candidates. More importantly, the applicants are far more engaged than I’ve seen on any other platform. They’ll actually tell me why they declined or passed on my offer, helping me better understand the job market for my needs. Plus, Hired offers employees a 2,000 dollar sign up bonus.

7. HackerRank

Vishal ShahHackerRank works brilliantly well for sourcing and hiring programmers. HackerRank has an existing active community of over a million developers who actively participate and solve coding challenges in order to get discovered, making it truly unique. Not only do you get an awesome product to interview andrecruit developers, but also a competitive pool of top developers to source from.

8. TheMuse.com

Chad HalvorsonAt When I Work, we enjoy using themuse.com. It allows candidates to get a quick view of our office space, available jobs and other features of the company. Our applicants are directed right to our HR person rather than through several forms.

10. Sourcing.io

Pratham MittalIf you are looking for software developer candidates, Sourcing.io is probably one of the best options out there. It crawls GitHub, Bitbucket and other developer communities like Stack Exchange to mine the top developers with the highest credibility and following. In addition to smart sourcing, it also provides a simple tracking system to help you take the candidate through the recruitment funnel.

They have a one-click browser extension that lets people import candidates directly from places like LinkedIn, Angellist, Github and Twitter. And it’s used by big companies like Quora, Box, Lyft and Slack.

    I would also add Breezy HR (https://breezy.hr) to the list, it’s a more affordable alternative with a free trial and pay as you go pricing, which can be better suited for companies of 5-50.
