I just provided a reference check for a prior colleague with Searchlight. Instead of playing phone tag and answering bad questions, I filled out a simple survey with great reference questions. The sample report shows rich behavioral data that can help us make sure we're hiring the right people. Can we bring Searchlight to our team?

What hiring managers have said about Searchlight

"Searchlight is the highest ROI in my hiring toolkit. The data is exceptionally useful to discuss during recruiting debriefs. Searchlight broadens our perspective on candidates so we make confident hiring decisions."

Chuong (Tom) Do

VP, Engineering, Data @ Udemy

With Searchlight, our managers instantly know a couple of areas where they can coach a new hire from the get go, and the other areas where we can leverage that person’s strength from the start. We can paint a more accurate picture of the qualities of our high performers.”

David Wiedeman

VP Commercial Sales @ Udemy

"Searchlight just works out-of-the-box and it’s not just a reference check. I love to have Searchlight’s information before proceeding with a candidate, as opposed to after hiring them. It gives me information about how to set someone up for success."

Bruno Miranda

SVP, Engineering @ Doximity

"Searchlight has made hiring more objective and data-driven, while helping us identify misalignment between candidate skills and our needs."

Garret Seevers

VP, Marketing @ BStock
