Diverse and Inclusive Employer

We’re committed to providing equal treatment and opportunity to all applicants at every stage of the hiring cycle and throughout their life at the company.  We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age, disability, veteran or military status, or any other legally protected status.

Note: Research says men tend to apply even if they only meet ~60% of the job qualifications, whereas women and other marginalized groups are hesitant to do so. If you don’t match 100% of the job qualifications but think you’d be a great fit, we encourage you to apply!

Why you should join Searchlight

Searchlight's mission is to build the best teams by helping companies hire the whole person, beyond resumes and interviews.

Searchlight's intelligent hiring software creates a profile of a candidate's team fit, strengths, and areas of growth through the people who've worked with them before. Our platform then matches the candidate to unique team profiles to predict top performers. Our customers like Zapier, Discord, and Chainlink now have the data they need to hire efficiently and effectively.

We've raised $20M from investors like Accel, Founders Fund, and Soma Capital.
