Searchlight helps bring the best people into your organization

Unlock the full picture with gold-standard reference checks

References are our core competency, and we're sharing our knowledge with you. It only takes 3 minutes to set your custom reference questions on Searchlight, and we integrate with your ATS. Then just sit back - we'll do the heavy lifting to learn about your candidate from the people who've worked with them before.

Accelerate hiring cycles by 50%

Searchlight conducts reference checks early, like paired with the phone screen or before the on-site interview. Our process gathers an average of 4 references per candidate in 4 days, so you can use this information to optimize later stages of the hiring process and move fast to close the candidates you want.

Prioritize diversity and inclusion

Searchlight gives every candidate an opportunity to showcase their abilities beyond just their resume. This allows recruiters to qualify more candidates from diverse backgrounds who lack traditional credentials. Candidates love us - feel free to check our references!
