SmartStart Edition offers enterprise-grade functionalities to attract, select and hire great talent without the big price tag

SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company, today announced the release of SmartStart, a free version of the SmartRecruiters enterprise talent acquisition suite that is designed specifically to make hiring easy for teams and companies of up to 250 employees.

“Of all the things leaders do, recruiting is the most important--and the most strategic," said Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder, Bersin by Deloitte. "Without the right team, no business can thrive.”

“SmartRecruiters is on a mission to connect people to jobs,” shared Jerome Ternynck, CEO and Founder of SmartRecruiters. “We all know hiring is particularly difficult for smaller organizations. Yet, they are the ones which create the most jobs. We want to make sure they have access to the same technology as the big enterprises. This is our way to give back.”

SmartStart makes hiring easy by allowing organizations to:

  • Find and engage top talent, with a great candidate experience
  • Make better hiring decisions by allowing hiring teams to collaborate more effectively
  • Save time and money by managing the entire recruiting process in one place

“SmartStart offers end-to-end functionality to attract, select and hire great talent. It is a powerful cloud recruiting solution with a built-in marketplace and a user interface that people love,” said Rebecca Carr, VP Product at SmartRecruiters.

Using SmartStart, businesses can:

1) Attract qualified candidates with a branded career website, integrated job posting, employee referrals, one-click apply, and an engaging candidate portal.

2) Select the best fit with customizable scorecards, interview management, and collaborative hiring for the entire team.

3) Hire candidates into your organization with offer management and configurable hiring forms.

SmartStart also leverages the SmartRecruiters’ modern enterprise cloud platform, which means state-of-the-art hosting and security, compliance with data privacy regulations, sourcing analytics, and a fully mobile optimized experience, as well as an award-winning hiring app on Android and iOS.

“We use SmartRecruiters to compete in the war for talent,” said Yannick Riveti, Director of Recruiting at Equinox Fitness. “We are very happy to see that small businesses now can get access to the same technology. Successful businesses are the foundation for prosperity, and success rests on the ability to hire great talent.”

Unlike other commercial recruiting solutions, SmartStart is very easy to use and focused on candidate experience, and it allows you to get started in minutes and at no cost.
