WHO WE ARE
Teamable’s software grows teams, drives diversity, and builds culture
Teamable’s mission is to enable companies to grow their teams, hire top talent, prioritize diversity, and nurture strong company culture. We are driven by the belief that every employee can be a recruiting and diversity champion.
Teamable was founded in 2013 by leaders from engineering, finance, and consulting who were frustrated with outdated recruiting workflows and ineffective hiring processes. Learning from the success of fast-growing companies and top recruiting teams, Teamable is helping companies tap into their employees’ connections to scale and accelerate their referral hiring programs.
What We Do
At Teamable, we are committed to making referral recruiting intuitive and fun. The Teamable platform transforms employees’ social networks into dynamic talent pools that drive high employee engagement and make referring relevant candidates easy. Our intuitive workflows and powerful search functionality make it possible for recruiters to source passive candidates and immediately request warm, email introductions from employees.
Teamable partners see a dramatic increase in referred candidates, improvement in the quality of their talent pipeline, and acceleration in their ability to fill strategic and volume roles. Candidates sourced through Teamable are trusted referrals and convert into employees at rates 8 times higher than candidates from other sources.
With Teamable, companies committed to diversity and inclusion are able to reach and engage underrepresented communities and build a more diverse talent pipeline.
