"We’re bringing better people into our company using Searchlight by screening for critical soft skills. When looking at talent that was hired with Searchlight vs. talent that wasn’t hired through Searchlight, the teams that hire with Searchlight have better quality of hire."

Daisy Chu

Head of People Operations @ Doximity

"We grew from a team of 50 to 200+ with Searchlight. Searchlight reference checks are our ticket to hiring an all-star team. I love Searchlight for the hiring efficiencies, and also because their data is so powerful. Searchlight tells us how this person will be at the job in a much more predictive way than an interview can."

Natalie Gavello Disraeli

Head of Talent @ Persona

"Searchlight helps me see blindspots. We use Searchlight not only to streamline our hiring, but also to customize launch plans to focus on growth areas. Doing this across the board led to low turnover rates and higher Quality of Hire. After sharing Searchlight data with the CTO, Head of Product, Head of Sales we expanded the usage of Searchlight across the business.”

Adrian Russo

VP, Talent Acquisition @ Swish Analytics

“[Searchlight References] provide some of the most predictive information we can get in the hiring process. Before Searchlight, I thought the only way to get this data was through interviews and by doing the reference calls myself. Now my whole executive team knows that Searchlight’s reference data is superior to what we used to get.

Kenny Mendes

Chief Operating Officer @ Coda
