Talentdrop is turning recruiting into an open marketplace, where hiring companies post bounties for their open roles and any recruiter or other professional can collect it by referring a successful candidate. Companies get more people working on their hiring problem without having to pay more for it, and now anyone can earn big recruiting bonuses previously limited to a few firms. Professional recruiters can now monetize the excess candidate inventory created from their primary business. This is work they've already done but previously couldn't benefit from. Likewise, candidates won't have to start the vetting process over from scratch again and again since they'll be able to be referred with context and get warm intros into hot hiring companies that can be hard to access. Companies can also share candidates in a more efficient way (for example, Company A has two great product candidates but only one headcount - they can refer the second). Machine learning will help us make better hiring recommendations faster.
I'm originally from the SF Bay Area. I went to Georgetown University in DC for undergrad where I played Women's Golf and studied Classics. After that I went to law school at Washington University in St. Louis where I became interested in employment law, prompting me to explore careers in HR & Talent. I wanted to get into tech so I pursued opportunities in recruiting, starting at a firm then going in house to Instacart, Snapchat, Facebook, and Uber between 2013-2019. I left to start Talentdrop!
Hey there! I'm from Rio Vista, CA. I received a scholarship to study at Stanford, where I majored in Computer Science. After graduating, I started at Snapchat in 2013 and was the second person on the iOS team. Then, I worked at an AI/medical lab for some time before joining forces with Maddy. I'm interested in the talent space because I have seen firsthand how hiring can make or break teams and, by extension, entire orgs/companies. We think that it's due time to usher in some new solutions.
