Searchlight's mission is to build the best teams by helping companies hire the whole person, beyond resumes and interviews.
Searchlight's intelligent hiring software creates a profile of a candidate's team fit, strengths, and areas of growth through the people who've worked with them before. Our platform then matches the candidate to unique team profiles to predict top performers. Our customers like Zapier, Discord, and Chainlink now have the data they need to hire efficiently and effectively.
We've raised $20M from investors like Accel, Founders Fund, and Soma Capital.
Searchlight is revolutionizing a new category of data-driven hiring, focused on data infrastructure that closes the loop between recruiting and post-hire outcomes.
