Talent engagement platform

Gem’s talent engagement platform helps recruiting teams use data and automation to improve hiring speed, quality, and diversity. Gem unifies data and context from the tools recruiters use every day, including email, applicant tracking systems, LinkedIn, and other social networks, to create a source of truth for all talent relationships. Armed with insights about the entire recruiting process, automation to reach out to talent at scale, and true cross-functional collaboration tools, TA teams can proactively and strategically plan for what’s ahead. Gem's customers are savvy recruiting teams from industry-leading companies — like Wayfair, Dropbox, Nasdaq, Cisco, and Doordash — who understand that hiring the best talent in the market is key to maintaining their competitive advantage.

Active Founders

Steven Bartel, CEO

Co-founder & CEO @ Gem. Prior to founding Gem, Steve was an engineering leader at Dropbox where his experience working closely with the recruiting process allowed him to see the lack of technology in the space. This inspired him to co-found Gem, which allows recruiting teams of all sizes to source talent, engage with talent, and use data to improve recruiting processes.

Nick Bushak

Co-founder & CTO @ Gem. Before Gem, Nick spent almost 7 years at Facebook, where he managed product engineering teams for Pages, Ads, and Messenger. He started and led the team that grew Boosted Posts, Facebook’s SMB ads product, to over $1B per year in revenue and millions of advertisers in just 2 years. Nick was inspired to bring the same top-notch internal recruiting software that enabled Facebook to recruit an exceptional team to every other company in the world.
