Lever reviews from startup founders

We were having a lot of success posting jobs on LinkedIn, in terms of getting applications, but we’re a small team, so each manager is in charge of hiring for the roles on their team. So, we needed something to manage the recruiting process from start to finish. Lever allows us to move candidates down the pipeline and show the process from start to finish. We can schedule interviews straight from there, keep all our notes there, tag different colleagues if we realize someone would be great for their role, and show if an offer was extended. We can also archive candidates and save them for a future opportunity. Having something beyond just posting helps you manage the process start to finish.

We used Lever as a candidate management tool. We switched over from another tool.
